This basil is truly lovely. It smells much more like the fresh herb than any other basil essential oil I’ve experienced, because of the higher linalool content. Basil is considered helpful for mental and physical fatigue, aids in mental alertness, and concentration. A good wake up oil, used in moderation. Helps ease sinus congestion and headaches. Helpful against colds and congestion, as well as easing muscular aches and pains. Can reduce menstrual cramps. Avoid use if pregnant or if subject to seizures.

There has been some concern that basil’s normally high content of methyl chavicol can be a carcinogen. The evidence is far from in on that one, but, on the other hand, it is the phenol content that would make “regular” basil both as stimulating as it is, and also as irritating as it can be. This basil should be much less irritating, and less apt to keep you awake at night!
