Essential Oil - Basil

(Ocimum basilicum)

balancing, clarifying

Basil essential oil smells just like the fresh-cut basil and instantly brings clarity to the mind and activates the senses. In aromatherapy the oil is diffused to boost activity in the adrenal cortex to stimulate mind and intellect.

It is also used in esthetic treatments to stimulate a sluggish complexion when a few drops are added to a facial steam or used in a massage blend to improve circulation.
