One thing I LOVE about using pure and natural ingredients is the history of each ingredient. I think it’s amazing that we still use ingredients that humans were using over 5000 years ago. Basil was widely used in ancient India for healing the mind and body, and has been  appropriately called the “Elixir Of Life” in Ayurvedic communities. Most of us know Basil as the herb we add to our favorite Italian dishes, but you may be surprised that in ancient India it was used for medicinal purposes to treat diarrhea, cough, constipation, indigestion and certain skin diseases.

Just like other members of the mint family, the oil can be extracted from the leaves to use for it’s health benefits and basil has soooo many!

Just like other members of the mint family, the oil can be extracted from the leaves to use for it’s health benefits and basil has soooo many! Basil has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial AND anti-fungal properties which makes it AMAZING for skin and hair! It also stimulates blood circulation which makes it great for hair growth!! Hence, this is why I chose to use it as ONE of the key ingredients in my Botanical Tonic growth oil.  I’m soo in LOVE with this oil and you should be too. Get some BASIL in your life!!
