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.

How To Clean Your Diffuser

Cleaning is a necessary step to ensure that oil residue doesn’t build up in your diffuser preventing it from working properly. Periodically, it is a good idea to run your diffuser through a cleaning cycle. If you use your unit every day, then running a cleaning cycle monthly is a good idea.

To do so, do the following:

  1. Fill your diffuser half way with clean water.
  2. Add 10 drops of white vinegar.
  3. Let the diffuser run for about 5 minutes to allow the water-vinegar mixture to disperse throughout the unit and clean it.
  4. Drain the diffuser completely.
  5. Using a cotton swab dipped in vinegar, clean the tight spots and corners of the diffuser.
  6. Rinse with clean water.
  7. Use a dry cloth to wipe the diffuser and dry it thoroughly.
