Basil essential oil has a naturally sweet, warming, and slightly spicy aroma that has anise-like notes and balsamic undertones. Basil essential oil is known to enhance memory and improve studying, improve respiratory capacity by relieving congestion in the lungs and sinuses, promote hair growth and strength as well as to promote mental clarity and alertness, reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, and soothe minor skin irritations and sore, stiff, or tight muscles.
Basil essential oil is an incredible ally when dealing with emotional distress that leaves you feeling anxious, fearful, or nervous. It is strengthening to the heart, mind, and body which allows you to face stress, feelings of overwhelm, mental fatigue, and “the jitters”. All in all, this is another must have in your essential oil collection!
(Please note: Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids that can be harmful if not used carefully and properly, and may cause irritation when applied to the skin. We encourage you to dilute oils at all times with any carrier oil and exercise caution when using them. We do not recommend using essential oils internally.)
