The fresh scent and stimulating, opening properties of Basil make it a wonderful oil to awaken the mind and body. Think of Basil for ‘tight, trapped’ states, both mental and physical.

Nature/Essence – Fresh & Clarifying

Basil is recognised for its benefits in both the digestive and respiratory systems to help ease and open up sinus congestion, digestive spasms, spasmodic coughs, and is also suggested for tension headaches.

Basil is one of the best essential oils to help strengthen a fatigued mind and aid mental clarity. Great during study, deadlines or whenever focus and decision-making is needed, nervous exhaustion, and for headaches or migraines from mental overwork.

Has been known to repel flies effectively.
