The spicy aroma of Basil refreshes and invigorates mind, body and spirit. Relieves stressed muscles, tension, and fatigue. Promotes mental clarity.

Basil essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the basil plant. Traditionally this herb has been used throughout the centuries in prayer and for healing. In holy temples, the leaves of the plant, soaked in holy water or coconut water, are chewed as part of the prayer ceremonies.

This greenish-yellow, crisp-smelling essential oil is often used in aromatherapy to awaken the mind, steady the nerves and bring about clarity of thought. Basil oil is said to be therapeutic for the respiratory tract and nervous or stress-related headaches whilst promoting mental strength and a clear mind. This oil can be used in massage for abdominal cramps, and to help relax the body suffering from stress, lethargy or lack of focus.

How to Use Essential Oils

Massage – Both body and facial massage can benefit from the intoxicating aroma of essential oils. Always ensure that you add the essential oil to a carrier oil first, and never apply directly to your skin. A carrier oil, also known as base oil, is used to dilute essential oils before they applied to the skin.

Bathing – There is no better way to unwind than in an essential oil bath, calming oils like Lavender and Clary Sage are especially relaxing. Add 5-10 drops in a bath and disperse vigorously before entering the bath.

Steam inhalation – This is a really good way of helping to relieve blocked sinuses or congestion. Eucalyptus is one of the most popular oils for this. Fill a large bowl with hot (not boiling water), add 3-4 drops of your chosen oil then lean over the bowl placing a towel over your head and slowly breathe in the until you start to feel relief.

Diffusers – There are many diffusers available, one of the most popular being an ultrasonic diffuser which uses water to create a fine mist. These are a great way of enjoying oils throughout the day in your home or office space. Citrus oils are particularly uplifting. Ideally leave your diffuser on for up to an hour at a time, leaving it off for a similar amount of time.
