Information on Essential Oils

Essential Oil Spotlight – Basil

Basil:

(Ocimum basilicum)

The spicy, yet herbal nature of Basil makes it a versatile oil that can be used to promote focus and alertness, or to add a little extra flavor while cooking.

Basil has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma known to reduce anxious feelings. Basil provides great benefits to both the mind and body due to its high linalool content, making it an ideal application to help reduce feelings of tension when applied to the temples and back of the neck. The aroma of Basil helps promote a sense of focus and a stress-relieving experience.  Basil is commonly used in cooking to add a fresh, herbal flavor to meats, pastas, and entrée dishes.

Primary Benefits:

  • Helps to keep the skin looking clean, clear, and healthy

  • Promotes mental alertness and lessens anxious feelings when diffused

  • Supports cardiovascular and nervous system health when consumed internally

Uses

  • Diffuse to promote a sense of focus while studying or reading.

  • Combine with Geranium and Wild Orange essential oils for an uplifting aromatic massage.

  • Add to your favorite dishes for a refreshing taste.

Note: These bubbles are not going to provide big fluffy bubbles that last a long time since it doesn’t contain the synthetic ingredients that create the high amounts of lather or foam. However, this chemical-free bath will provide enough bubbles for a relaxing and therapeutic bath you will enjoy even more.
