      Basil is used on the skin for its antiseptic, antifungal and circulatory stimulating properties in applications such as treating acne, insect bites, ringworm, and also as an insect repellent. The linalol variety contains a terpene alcohol of which vitamin E is a main constituent, thus making it more healing for the skin. The essential oil of basil is often added to facial steams, cleansers, toners, hair rinses, soaps and perfumes. In hair products basil adds a delightful scent, improves hair growth and tames tangles. It makes an excellent energizing bath herb. Basil is stimulating to the mind and used for nervousness and exhaustion. See basil, sweet.
