Ampersand Essential Oils
Release the aroma of a summer garden into your home when you open up our Basil essential oil. Basil is a sweet-smelling herb with many uses, including relief from depression.
Basil originated in France and is esteemed as holy in multiple cultures including India. It has long been used in Southeast Asian and Mediterranean food to infuse the fragrant flavor of summer.
Basil can work wonders for slow digestion, muscle cramps and spasms, headaches, stress, wasp stings, and even poor memory. It's easy to see why this little plant has long been viewed with superstition--it's like magic.
