The fragrant herb Basil is best known as one of the most versatile herbs to use in Mediterranean and Eastern cooking. Basil linalool essential oil is one of the finest oils available for calming and focusing the mind, and is also useful for easing tension in the head and neck. It is preferred as a mind-clearing oil for spiritual meditation. Due to the high linalool content (which makes this oil very relaxing) you can also use basil to help ease the transition into bedtime. Basil also can help uplift your mood.
For a great soothing blend, combine equal amounts of Bergamot, Clary Sage and Basil linalool and diffuse. Add Basil linalool to your favorite carrier oil or milk bath to help soothe away tension.
