I love to use Basil: In my pastas and salad dressing, also applied to temple for tasks that need focus, In my diffuser at home its fresh and helps relieves tension.
Basil has a 5ml warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma known to provide a feeling of calm and centeredness. Basil provides great benefits to both the mind and body due to its high linalool content, making it an ideal application to enable feelings of calmness and centering when applied to the temples and back of the neck. Basil is commonly used in cooking to add a fresh, herbal flavour to meats, pastas, and entrée dishes, and it is also cooling to the skin. The aroma of Basil helps promote a sense of focus, calmness and a feeling of centeredness.
