For many of us who are fans of gardening, the refreshing scent of basil is something that many of us have come to admire. As a member of the mint family, basil is believed to have originated from India and areas of China, and it has a rich history throughout the world. Used in embalming and preserving rituals by ancient Egyptians, as well as in traditional Ayurvedic medicines of ancient India, basil is considered one of the oldest and most versatile herbs still in use today.
The benefits of Basil Essential Oil are vast. You can diffuse Basil to energize the body and stimulate mental clarity for enhanced alertness. Diffuse or add to an aromatherapy inhaler and breathe in deeply to experience the effects of a calmer mind and clear mental focus before a big test or work meeting. Soothe your nerves and create a more peaceful state of mind in times of hardship by including Basil in your diffuser blend.
Commonly used in skin and hair care, Basil offers a wide range of benefits that help to calm minor skin irritations and itchiness associated with a flaky scalp or dry skin. Add a few drops to your favorite carrier oil or shampoo to hydrate and add shine to your locks and promote lustrous hair. Include Basil essential oil in your skincare routine for a brighter and smoother complexion. Experience the soothing properties of Basil by diluting it with a carrier oil and applying topically to tired or achy muscles and joints.
With a strong herbal aroma, Basil essential oil presents a middle-top fragrance note that features a spicy, sharp, and almost licorice-like scent that makes for an excellent addition to many diffuser blends.
