Tulsi is auspicious in all respects. Simply by seeing, simply
by touching, simply by remembering, simply by praying to,
simply by bowing before, simply by hearing about, or simply
by sowing this tree, there is always auspiciousness. Anyone
who comes in touch with the tulasi tree in the
above-mentioned ways lives eternally in the Land of Divine
Bliss. - from the Skanda Purana
In Hindu tradition is it believed that Tulsi is a goddess embodied in an herb, and is revered as the holiest of all plants.
Our Ancient Tulsi HydroSoul, artisan distilled in copper for the hydrosol alone, is an exceptionally active, protective 'water'. Its fragrance enlivens the emotions, bringing conscious awareness into the mind. In a word: it awakens. In the wisdom of Ayurveda, Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) exhibits anti-oxidant, purifying, awakening, grounding benefits to skin, respiratory passages and psyche.
The fragrance of our Tulsi Facial Tonic HydroSoul is stimulating and awakening; it is spicy, slightly clove-like (it's the eugenol), and you might notice a very faint, sheer tinge of a pinky-copper color which is from being distilled in copper. This plant is not to be confused with basil linalol, Ocimum basilicum, Tulsi's more sweet-scented healing comrade. Both have superb energizing and restorative attributes.
Frequently misting has an exceptional action, helping to cleanse, rejuvenate and purify blemished skin, and decongest clogged pores.
