Basil is one of the most popular culinary herbs, with a classic warm, sweet, and spicy aroma. Basil means 'royal herb' in Greek. Our Basil essential oil is extracted from Ocimum basilicum.
Basil was cultivated for more than 5,000 years and originated in India. Later, Basil was introduced to western Europe, where it quickly became a crucial component in their gastronomy.
The rich aroma of our Basil Essential Oil energizes and stimulates the body and mind, enhances mood, increases alertness, and soothes muscle aches. Basil oil is also used as a natural insect repellent. Basil has a high linalool content, a substance known to reduce stress levels and anxiety, and gives a sense of relaxation and well-being. Basil is also an adaptogenic herb, helping your body to adapt to stress and promoting mental health. Basil essential oil is on the GRAS list of generally recognized oils as safe.

Certificate of Analysis (COA) upon request.
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 to 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.
In some cases, Basil oil can be ingested in extremely small amounts. For direct ingestion, use one (1) drop of Basil Oil diluted into liquid. If cooking with Basil Oil, always begin with one (1) drop before further addition.
For external use only after a patch test. Avoid contact with eyes, ears, mouth, and other sensitive areas. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor's care, consult your physician. Do not use undiluted on the skin. Best kept in a cool, dry place.
