Emotionally and spiritually, basil essential oil is helpful in dealing with feelings of anxiousness, fear, or nervousness, and has been said to be the oil of "renewal". It is strengthening and calming to the heart and mind, making it perfect for overwhelm, stress, fatigue, and may even assist a person in their efforts to overcome addiction. Plus it’s super fresh tasting compared to the dry spices in your cupboard! 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱

Smell the victory of the day. Ideas mulled; calls made; contests had; agreements settled. Rest and reflect. We are the champions, my friend.
