BASIL ESSENTIAL OIL
Basil is a tender, aromatic herb with small white flowers, with a distinctive recognisable aroma. Basil in its original form is most renowned for its inclusion in Italian cooking. Basil oil is a member of the Lamiaceae family. This herby oil emits a warm, sweet, freshly floral and crisply herbaceous scent. It is classed as a top note and blends well with citrus, herby, minty and woodsy oils. Basil provides great benefits to health physically and emotionally to stimulate, clarify, calm, fortify, energize and uplift the mind as well as help reduce the feelings of tension. Basil oil when used in a massage or bath blend can help to ease digestive discomforts. It is also said to repel insects, eliminate odour-causing bacteria, soothe headaches, and relieve respiratory.
