Once a staple of traditional Asian Indian medicine, basil essential oil is now best known for its culinary uses. However, this powerful oil still has many other benefits.
Basil oil has a calming scent, soothing to both the mind and the skin, and able to help clear up redness and irritation.
It was traditionally used to relieve gastric distress, and many people still find that rubbing diluted basil oil on the lower abdomen can help manage discomfort.
Botanical Name: Ocimum Canum
