Basil has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma known to
enhance memory function while reducing stress and
tension. Basil provides restorative benefits to both the
mind and body due to its high linalool content, making
it an ideal application for sore muscles and joints and to
reduce tension when applied to the temples and back
of neck. Basil is commonly used in cooking to add a
fresh, herbal flavor to meats, pastas, and entrée dishes,
but it is also cooling to the skin and can be used to
soothe minor irritations. When diffused, Basil helps
promote clear breathing and healthy respiratory function
while sharpening focus and lessening anxiety.
