Basil essential oil helps in improving the digestive system activities and removes the gas that can be found in the intestines. This alleviates problems of the digestion such as infections and spasms as well as gastroenteritis and vomiting. Needless to say, this should be on your pocket when you are travelling especially when you are a sensitive person. This oil is also helpful in such a way we never expect; it has a profound effect on the nervous system, it relieves fatigue and cleans up the head, providing you a more peaceful and strong mind. When you feel vulnerable, you may use this to relieve it as well as when you are physically exhausted.

Basil is also a good source of vitamin A, which helps to prevent damage to the cells by free radicals. Vitamin A also prevents free radicals from oxidizing cholesterol in the blood stream, preventing the cholesterol from building up in the blood vessels.

Essential oil of basil has been shown to inhibit the growth of several types of bacteria, many of which have become resistant to antibiotics. This essential oil has been found to inhibit growth of the widespread staphylococcus, enterococcus, pseudomonas, and e. coli bacteria, among others. Adding basil to your vinaigrette will both enhance the flavor, and ensure that the fresh salad greens are safe to eat.

Magnesium is also present in basil. This essential mineral helps the heart and blood vessels to relax, improving blood flow. Other nutrients found in basil include iron, calcium, potassium, and vitamin C.
