About:

When feeling a little dull and grey, take a whiff of Basil oil’s aroma and feel the fog lift from your mind. The complex scent of basil is so diverse that it's been described as a mix of citrus, licorice, cinnamon and more. Those traits account for why basil is considered one of the energy-inducing oils.

Basil is one of the most commonly used herbs for extraction today. But, it is steeped in history dating back to the 16th century when it was used to help treat migraines and chest infections.

In India, this herb is holy and is considered sacred. As a religious tradition, people chew Basil leaves before partaking in religious ceremonies. It's also valued for its amazing source of natural antioxidants, antibacterial agents, and anti-inflammatory compounds. As much as it is thought of as a "medicinal" herb, it has also been used throughout history to treat the skin due to the beneficial vitamins and minerals of Vitamin A, magnesium, potassium, iron, and calcium.
