The plant of Holy Basil commonly known as “Tulsi”, belong to Lamiaceae family. It is an erect, much branched, fragrant and erected plant attaining a height of about 20-50 cm. Different parts of the plant are used in Ayurveda and Siddha systems of medicine for prevention and cure of many illnesses like cough, influenza, common cold, headache, fever, colic pain, bronchitis, asthma, hepatic diseases, fatigue, skin diseases, arthritis, digestive disorders. The present paper is an attempt to provide a detailed botanical description, taxonomy, traditionally used and various pharmacological activity study of the plant.
The Basil plant is an annual herb that grows up to one meter in height. The flower color rang from white to pink depending on the species of plant. The leaves are religiously important In India and are considered a holy plant. The basil oil is highly use in aromatherapy as it awakens the mind to clarity of thought and acts as a mental stimulant.
Fresh leaves of Holy Basil of 5 varieties were collected around Gujarat and South Region (India). The plant materials were identified and authenticated before extractions begin. A large number of plant species contain volatile chemical compounds which can be extracted as an essential oil. According to the geographical origin of basil varieties and on the basis of their major constituents, basil leaves were used with high amount of eugenol.

Extraction and Distillation:-
The Oil is extracted by using Hydro (Steam) Distillation. The content of Compounds was correlated with plant height rather than plant age. Particularly, Methyl eugenol and Estragole was predominant in plants up to 10 cm in height, whereas eugenol was prevalent in taller plants. Different methods are used to separate these oils from the various plant materials. Although it seems relatively simple to isolate such oils, the composition of oil may vary to a large extent depending on the extraction method used.
Steam Distillation is used for distilling volatile components from various raw materials, like spices, seeds, leaves, roots etc. These oils are generally recovered by directly applying steam to raw materials followed by condensation of the distillate. The temperature of the steam needs to be carefully controlled – just enough to force the plant material to let go of the essential oil, yet not too hot as to burn the plant material or the essential oil. Different components of these essential oils contribute to the characteristic fragrance and aroma.
The extraction was done in a Clevenger apparatus, coupled to a bottom flask. It was added crushed leaves of basil and water into the flask. The extraction time was fixed at 5 hours. The extract oil was diluted in hexane and filtered after separation. Then, it was dried using Na2SO4 to remove the water and after that, the solutions were separated by rota evaporator.
The Basil Extracted samples were analysed by gas chromatography technique (GC) with TCD as detector and capillary column of 25 m long. The oven, injector and detector temperatures were maintained at 200 °C.
Result and Discussion:-
Eugenol was found to be the primary component in the extractions from each sample batch. The components of the oil were identified by comparison of their linear retention indices (LRIs) on the two columns, determined in relation to a homologous series of n-alkanes, with those from pure standards.
This Geofresh Panch Tulsi Oil is free from flavouring Chemical compound Estragole and Methyl Eugenol to allow it to be used for human consumption and to comply with current regulations.
