Basil


Basil is now grown in many countries of the world although it originates from Africa.

The herb has a long history of medicinal and culinary use, and was familiar to the Ancient Egyptian and Greek civilizations.

Basil is sacred in the Hindu religion and has many medicinal uses in India and other Eastern countries.

The whole plant is subjected to a process of steam distillation to obtain the essential oil used in aromatherapy.

Basil has a refreshing, invigorating effect and also has antiseptic properties.

It is used in massage, inhalation and baths, and can help to relieve the symptoms of tiredness, colds and respiratory disorders, indigestion and digestive problems, and minor skin wounds and rashes.

It can help to alleviate the symptoms of depression although it has a depressive effect if used to excess.
