"I experimented with it rubbing the oil into sore joints, and a sore low back. It is pleasantly warming and relieves the inflammation, pain and stiffness quite well. I had read the label and was concerned that it might cause skin irritation. So, I tried it on a small spot first and waited 30 minutes with no problems using it straight.The oil has a lovely spicy smell and no, it does not smell like the regular cooking basil.I am amazed at how well it works. I had a long ropey knot in my lower back that had been there for months. I managed to work it out completely using just the holy basil oil and a few minutes of rubbing it. Plus, I think this is the best price I have found on the internet for a 15ml bottle Holy Basil oil." - C. Lockyer
