Ocimum tenuiflorum, O. sanctum

Holy Basil (leaf) supports a healthy response to stress, while nourishing the mind and elevating the spirit. It also contains Rosmarinic acids and Eugenol, which have been shown to have antioxidant activity and support normal levels of inflammation. It has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to increase clarity of thought, memory and concentration, as well as to dispel depression. It is helpful with foggy thinking in menopause and with chronic stress. It may help to lower cortisol levels and it has mild antiviral properties. This herb is native to India.
