Basil essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and
  flowering tops of the basil plant. This greenish-yellow,
crisp-smelling essential oil is often used in aromatherapy to
  awaken the mind, steady the nerves and bring about clarity
  of thought. Basil originates from tropical Asia and the   Pacific
  Islands, but is now grown throughout Europe and the   USA.

Basil oil is said to be therapeutic for the respiratory tract
  and is often used for asthma, bronchitis, and sinus
  infections. It is used to treat nervous disorders and
  stress-related headaches and migraines. It is supposed
  to relieve intellectual fatigue, while giving clarity and mental
  strength. This oil is said to ease constipation, nausea, vomiting, abdomen cramps and is considered good for menstrual problems. It is helpful to relieve gout as it helps reduce uric acid in the blood. It is useful for   arthritis, refreshes the skin, and heals insect bites. However, experts advise pregnant women and children under 16 to avoid using this oil.
