Basil originates in India, but is widely used all over the world. It is an herbaceous member of the mint family. Sweet Basil is very characteristic for Italian cuisine. The botanical name “Ocimum” may come from the Greek “to smell”, and it is sometimes used to imitate the smell of Lily of the Valley in soaps and fragrances.
Basil generates stamina and promotes self-confidence. Relieving fatigue and exhaustion of both body and mind, this oil will also help increase motivation, enhance sexual drive and reduce mental depression.
Helpful for repelling insects (e.g. with Lemongrass).
