Throughout history, basil was believed to have almost magical powers. It was used as an antidote for snake bites and was believed to give strength during religious fasting. In India, this herb was considered a powerful protector. As a medicinal herb, it is thought to be beneficial for poor digestion, headaches, the common cold, improved memory, anxiety, and the treatments of burns and cuts.

Marjoram has been used since ancient times as a natural treatment for many ailments. Ancient Greeks believed it helped heal from poison, convulsions, and edema. They called this herb "joy mountain" and crowned young couples with it during wedding ceremonies.

The medicinal uses of Lavender date back to 2500 BC. It is affectionately known as the Swiss Army Knife of essential oils because it offers powerful support to almost every system of the body. For centuries Lavender has been used for skin ailments. Infusions of lavender were historically used to soothe insect bites, sunburns, and cuts and burns.

Peppermint leaves were used as a remedy for indigestion since the ancient times. Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all valued it as a stomach soother. During the eighteenth century, the herb became popular in Western Europe as a remedy for nausea, vomiting, morning sickness, respiratory infections, and menstrual disorders.

Peppermint was first listed in the London Pharmacopoeia in 1721. In modern times it appears in the British Herbal pharmacopeia as a remedy for intestinal colic, gas, colds, morning sickness, and menstruation pain. It is also known to regulate body temperature.

The use of Cypress as medicine dates back to the time of the Pharaohs, who applied it for its astringent, tonifying, decongestant, and diuretic properties. It was commonly used for funerals and burial sites. Drawing from its mythological symbolism and associations, the scent is suggested as being helpful during times of transition and grief. It is known to positively affect the respiratory, circulatory, and dermatological uses.
