  • Basil has been observed as a symbol of love in Italian culture. When a woman is ready for her suitor to arrive, she normally puts a basil plant in a container on her balcony. The woman would fall in love with the man if he showed up carrying a sprig of basil. When a man had basil on him, it was an indication that he was seriously considering the woman he was dating.
  • Basil is a perennial plant that is part of the Lamiaceae (mints) family. These basil leaves are oval shaped and are either green or purple. The Basil leaves branch from a single stem that also produces clusters of white flowers at its tip. The leaves of the basil plant can grow up to 3–11 cm long and the plant as a whole can grow to be 30–130 cm tall.2
  • Basil essential oil may also be combined with other essential oils, such as lavender or peppermint, to create unique aroma combinations!

A natural substance called linalool can be found in many kinds of plants and flowers. Particularly when condensed into an essential oil, the high linalool content of both plants and flowers has the unique potential to aid in relaxation of the mind and body.

Because it interacts with a variety of receptors in this monoaminergic system, linalool is quite efficient against these neurotransmitters. In contrast to compounds that only target one receptor, chemicals like linalool are more potent and persistent when they target numerous receptors.

Linalool lessens depressive symptoms by promoting brain chemical balance in these receptors. The high linalool content of basil plants and basil oil makes them an excellent natural remedy for regulating mood and lowering depressive feelings.

Thus, making Basil essential oil a powerful oil just as any other pure essential oils!
