While the word might conjure up images of saucy pastas and cheesy pizza, Basil essential oil has an extensive range of uses beyond the palette. Italians use Basil to inspire romance and affection. In Africa, where itÌs used more medicinally, many people use the plantÌs leaves to relieve water retention, high blood pressure, fevers, coughs and digestive system problems. Fresh and sweet, BasilÌs aroma is very similar to that of traditional Italian cooking. Many people use it as a digestive aid and to provide relief to aching or cramping muscles. Adding a few droplets to our Lavender oil and softly inhaling the blend can help ease the pain and stress of a headache. Native to Africa and Asia, Basil essential oil is derived through a steam distillation process. The bushy plant grows to a height of about 2 feet and has white, blue or purple flowers.
