Holy Basil (in India known as Tulsi) is actually used directly for most of the things. It is very medicinal. We always put few holy basil leaves in our drinking water jars. So I do not see any harm in applying it’s oil without diluting.

If it is in concentrated form, it is always better to dilute it or mix it with carrier oil and then apply.

Hi Gia. I did use it without diluting and it was fine – no reaction; but, I do fell better mixing it with a carrier oil. Thank you for your response. Donna
