Basil essential oil has a naturally sweet, warming, and slightly spicy aroma that has anise-like notes and balsamic undertones. The herb has been used for hundreds of years in many cultures for its culinary and medicinal qualities and is credited with the ability to ward off evil, imbue mental fortitude, and enhance memory.

• Enhance memory and improve studying • Improve respiratory capacity by relieving congestion in the lungs and sinuses • Promote hair growth and strength • Promote mental clarity and alertness • Reduce feelings of anxiety • Reduce stress • Soothe minor skin irritations • Soothe sore, stiff, or tight muscles
