🌿 HOLY BASIL BENEFITS:
Holy Basil has been revered for its medicinal value throughout India for thousands of years, described as "the mother medicine of nature" or "The Elixir of Life".
Holy Basil, or Tulsi, is an important symbol in the Hindu religion and it is a significant herb in ayurvedic medicine. Historically used in these areas as medicine because of its widespread healing power, holy basil leaves are now regarded by most countries as adaptogen herbs (anti-stress agents) and have been used widely to promote health throughout the entire body.
In addition to managing diabetes by controlling blood sugar levels, an article published in the journal Die Pharmazie (German for “The Pharmacy”) describes that the hypoglycemic effects of holy basil is possibly due to its ability to regulate serum cortisol levels. Oftentimes ignored, the “stress hormone,” as it’s commonly referred to, is responsible for an alarming number of diabetes mellitus cases throughout the world. Its far-reaching effects on the body can play havoc on learning, memory, lowered immune function, bone density, weight gain and heart disease.
Elevated cortisol levels are so dangerous that Psychology Today refers to cortisol as “Public Enemy #1”! Another benefit from lower cortisol is supplementing with holy basil has been found to reduce anxiety and emotional stress. Some feel this extract also helps with withdrawal symptoms.
Eugenol, B-caryophyllene, sesquiterpenes, monoterpenes, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), carotene (vitamin A), calcium, iron, and selenium, as well as zinc, manganese, and sodium as trace elements.
Extracted from: Dried Herb
Herb: Alcohol Ratio- 1:2
🌿 A good strong herbal tincture is some of the best medicine available. The strong taste is largely due to the amount of herb that has been drawn into the liquid, and alcohol draws out more herbal properties than anything else. While you can make tinctures out of glycerin, they will not be as strong and will not have the same extended shelf life as an alcohol tinctured herb. A less powerful tincture means that you will have to take more to equal the same dose as one made from alcohol.
🌿 Fun fact: The amount of alcohol in the average dose of a tincture is equal to the amount of alcohol in a ripe banana.
If you would like us to make an extract using kosher vegetable glycerin instead, please leave a note in regards to this at checkout.
1 oz., 2 oz., and 4 oz. comes in a amber glass bottle with a dropper.
8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes come in amber glass bottle with a plastic screw cap and do not include a dropper.

Mix the prescribed number of extract drops into 1-2 ounces of water. You can also add the drops to warm tea (not piping hot) or juice. Certain herbs may be damaged by high heat, so avoid adding the extract to "hot" water or coffee. Taking them straight from the dropper may cause a burning sensation in the mouth. If you choose to take the extract straight, please have water handy to drink immediately after.

• The more thoroughly a soap bar can dry out between uses, the longer it will last. Make sure to use a soap saver or soap dish so that your soap can dry out between uses. Don't allow your soap to sit in a puddle of water or let the shower pour down on it. For soap saver trays and pouches, please visit our shop.
• Softer water usually makes your soap last longer because the soap lathers more quickly so you don't have to rub it as much.
• A person who uses a washcloth, sea sponge, or a different lathering aid will use less soap than one who rubs the soap directly over the skin.
Yes we do. PLEASE contact me if you have ANY questions or need a certain product made without certain ingredients & I will do my best to accommodate you.

I'm honestly not really sure how many times I have re-ordered this extract from VirgoOrganics, but this isn't my first review by any means! I use the cinnamon, tumeric and krishna (holy basil) extracts and have been absolutely obsessed from the beginning. As I have mentioned in past reviews, the combination of these 3 extracts (along with daily diet and light exercise regimen, of course) have helped raise my antioxidant levels as well as quell some joint pain. I can ALWAYS tell when I have not been taking them faithfully or if I delay myself in ordering them when I run out; to be quite honest, my last Dr. visit found my antioxidant count down by a bit and (of course!) I had been neglecting my routine in taking them! The quality, care and true attention to detail shine bright in all that is created by this shoppe. Thanks so much!

This is actually the second round of the Holy Basil Extract that I have ordered from this lovely little godsend of a shoppe; I actually came to find out about them through a local herbalist that also carries some of their extracts in her storefront. I decided to give this extract a shot after reading into the possibility that it could ease anxiety and stress and lower cortisol levels. Virgo Organics is TOP NOTCH, all around - from their product to their customer service, it's all SMASHING, folks. If you have any questions at all, do send a note their way. They pack items with care, and they SHIP SUPER FAST! I'm always surprised when they arrive, it's crazy! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO, VIRGO ORGANICS! I'm a new lifetime customer :)
