Why we formulated it

Basil, scientifically known as Ocimum basilicum, is used in the traditional medicine as an anti-inflammatory, sedative and analgesic, mainly for the treatment of headache, diarrhea, congestion, indigestion, cough, kidney and intestinal disorders. The leaves of the plant, from which the essential oil is produced, contain a high concentration of linalool and estragol, ingredients with proven antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Due to linalool, the essential oil also acts as an insect repellent, suitable for children.

 

Basil essential oil is often found in dental preparations (e.g. toothpastes) and mouthwashes, thanks to its antiseptic action. It also protects against colitis, acting as an antioxidant. Its fresh and slightly sweet scent is suitable for rejuvenating the atmosphere and setting the tone for concentration.
