doTERRA's Basil Essential Oil has long been used for its adrenal support and tension relief. It has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma traditionally used to reduce anxious feelings.

Basil provides great benefits to both the mind and body due to its high linalool content, making it ideal to help reduce tension when applied to the temples, back of the neck or soles of the feet. The soles of the feet is where the skin's pores are largest which facilitates quick absorption into the bloodstream.

Basil can help to improve digestion and support adrenals. lt is commonly used in cooking to add a fresh, herbal flavour to meats and pastas, and it is also cooling to the skin. When diffused, Basil helps promote focus and stress-relief. It also tastes great in hummus!
