The spicy aroma of Basil refreshes and invigorates mind, body and spirit. Relieves stressed muscles, tension, and fatigue. Promotes mental clarity.​

Basil essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the basil plant. Traditionally this herb has been used throughout the centuries in prayer and for healing. In holy temples, the leaves of the plant, soaked in holy water or coconut water, are chewed as part of the prayer ceremonies.

This greenish-yellow, crisp-smelling essential oil is often used in aromatherapy to awaken the mind, steady the nerves and bring about clarity of thought. Basil oil is said to be therapeutic for the respiratory tract and nervous or stress-related headaches whilst promoting mental strength and a clear mind. This oil can be used in massage for abdominal cramps, and to help relax the body suffering from stress, lethargy or lack of focus.

Focus on the feet to relax muscles and reduce fatigue.
