The pungent aroma that the herb Basil releases is very distinctive. The essential oil of Basil is calming and relaxing and helps to relieve stress. Whether inhaled, or applied topically it may help ease discomfort from migraines, nervous tension, nausea, motion sickness, anxiety, depression, fatigue, mental strain, indigestion, constipation, respiratory problems, and diabetes.
Basil has many applications in hair care (just massage it into your scalp) and skin care, which you can discover more about here.
Note: Arianrhod Aromatics does NOT advise you to apply full strength essential oils directly on your skin or to ingest essential oils.
