    Basil Essential Oil can help stimulate your mind and help you focus and be alert. It is an energizing oil and is best used during the morning and daytime hours. Basil is anti-bacterial and anti-viral and is useful in easing a cold or flu as it is considered to be.

    Basil has been known to help clear the mind and relieve intellectual fatigue, while giving clarity and mental strength. It helps with headaches and exhaustion and has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma when diffused. It is high in linalool so is helps support muscles and joints after exercise.
