What is Basil?
Basil essential oil is extracted from the leaves, stems and flowers of the Basil plant. It has a warm, spicy, and herbal aroma that is known to reduce anxious feelings. One amazing thing about Basil essential oil is that it provides great benefits for both mind and body due to its high linalool content. (Tip: Apply Basil to temples and back of the neck! Dilute with a carrier oil for skin sensitivity.)
