A truly versatile oil, Basil is known for its soothing aroma and providing a cooling sensation to the skin. Basil adds flavor to a variety of dishes and is a helpful addition to any essential oil collection. 

Description

 

Basil has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma known for its soothing properties. Basil provides great benefits due to its high linalool content, making it an ideal application to help provide a relaxing aroma when applied to the temples and back of the neck.
