Holy Basil for your skin and hair

The holy basil or tulsi is highly revered in Hinduism. Used in almost every aspect of our traditional chores, it is a home-grown plant in India. A common scenario of a lady taking rounds of the tulsi chaura or the podium like structure can be glimpsed in any household, mainly if you take a travel towards the outskirts. The whole scene according to me can calm down any level of stress and eradicate any kind of negativity. It's pure bliss !

Now, some facts about basil :

- Basil is native to India, China, Southeast Asia and New Guinea. Originally domesticated in India, it is a half-hardy annual plant, best known as a culinary herb prominently featured in Italian cuisine, and also plays a major role in Southeast Asian cuisines of Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Taiwan ( ref. : Wikipedia )
