Basil oil- so versatile

I really love this oil, it's smell is pronounced and freshly invigorating! My first experience having it used on my face from a massage left me feeling great for the whole day! I'm so happy to have this amazing oil! For now, I use a drop of it with coconut oil on my face. Once I have more variety of essential and carrier oils I'll try blending with Frankincense just to name one. Not to mention, I have yet to add it to foods- which I'm sure will be amazing!

Basil- mind lifter

Basil oil is quite a bit different than the basil leaf. It is deeper and more fragrant in its concentration. Basil is reputed to be an excellent brain booster, stomach calmer and mood elevator. Basil works well with other culinary oils like rosemary and sage.
