In diffusion: Basil is a powerful tonic of the adrenal glands, which are responsible for producing the hormones that allow the body to adapt to stressful situations. It has a revitalizing and invigorating action. Basil clears the mind, stimulates memory and concentration and offers greater resistance to fatigue.
Massage: antispastic, massage Basil Essential Oil on the abdomen and the solar plexus to get rid of digestive problems related to stress. Relieves spasms and muscle pain; highly recommended also during a rehabilitation process.
Aromatic baths, vaporization and steam inhalation: greatly beneficial for colds, sinusitis, flu and spasmodic cough. In addition to being an expectorant, it actively supports the immune system.
Add a couple of drops of Basil Essential Oil to Olive Oil to get a deliciously flavoured dressing!
