Tulsi Ark / Hydrosol: Holy Basil steam distilled water, traditionally known as the ark, is technically referred to as Hydrosol. This is steam-distilled water that contains the water-soluble nutrients of the herb Holy Basil.

This ark [Tulsi Ark] has multiple uses in our life from being an effective medicine (preventive and curative remedy) to a useful skincare ingredient.

What is Shayma tulsi/ Holy basil

Shyama Tulsi or Holy Basil is an aromatic shrub with exceptional medicinal value usually found in every Indian home. Holy Basil/Tulsi’s scientific name is Ocimum Sanctum. It is purple to dark-colored leaves and is considered the best of all the basil breeds amongst the Rama tulsi or Vana Tulsi and other basil varieties available. The nature of holy basil is warm hence helps normalize Kapha and vata.

Basil leaves benefits are known to almost every Indian but the convenience attached to the allopathic pills have pushed aside the Ayurveda healing and medicinal herbs. And this simply over the years has made it a secondary line of treatment thus rendering it ineffective.

In Ayurveda, the holy basil is known as “Mother Medicine of Nature” and “The Queen of Herbs”. With its spiritual and medicinal properties, the herb is revered as the elixir of life. The emerging science on holy basil suggests basil leaves as a tonic to the human body with pharmacological benefits.
