Tulsi is also called upon for life and death, for various acts of life and above all for giving children to those who want them. According to tradition, Holy Basil protects from unfortunate destinies and evil spirits. This Essential Oil is considered a sacred herb in India, where it has been planted around doorways to banish evil spirits.
