Basil essential oil is among the oils I go to when I need to focus and stir up some creativity. Basil oil is an energizing oil and is best used during the morning and daytime hours. Blends well with Bergamot, Helichrysum, Lavederr, Geranium, Wintergreen, Cypress, Frankincense, Wild Orange, Rosemary, White Fir, Myrrh. My current favorite is to blend it with Wild Orange! In fact this morning, I woke with a little head tension and still feeling a little bit sluggish - I added a couple drops of basil and wild orange to my unscented lotion. Love.
