Basil (Ocimum basilicum)

Basil (Ocimum basilicum)


Essential oil is obtained from steam distillation of the leaves and flowering tops. One of the most useful oils for cephalic effects (stimulating and clearing the mind). When inhaled, it clears the head, relieves intellectual fatigue, and gives the mind strength and clarity. Also useful for nervous disorders, especially those associated with weakness, indecision or hysteria. Julia Lawless suggests it is good for those who need protection, due to a debilitating illness, nervous exhaustion or a change in life resulting in feelings of vulnerability. Helps with anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, migraine, nervous tension. (I have noticed that animals with these conditions choose this oil). Basil is also a great nerve tonic. Helps with fainting spells and temporary paralysis.

Comes in a 5ml-dropper bottle.

Safety: It is relatively non-toxic, non-irritant oil though some individuals may be sensitive to it. Avoid during pregnancy.
