Dosage - How much Basil Essential Oil should I use?

Pure essential oils are concentrated and potent; a couple of drops are usually enough for topical use and aromatherapy. Always do a patch test; half teaspoon of carrier oil to 1-3 drops of essential oil. If tolerated you may increase the ratio until desired effect.

You may inhale the aroma directly from the bottle or sprinkle a few drops of the oil onto a cloth or tissue or use three to four drops in the diffuser or vaporizer of your choice.

Combine basil essential oil with a carrier oil, such as almond, coconut, or avocado oil, and use it directly on your skin, after a patch test, applying one to two drops to the desired area. Basil oil can also be used in your bath water or on a cloth for your clothes dryer instead of an artificial fragrance sheet.
