Description

Why should I add Basil oil to my collection? Like many other tender-leaf herb essential oils (such as Cilantro oil), Basil essential oil contains high levels of linalool, a property that fosters skin-soothing sensations. However, the aroma of Basil essential oil has a particularly invigorating yet relaxing aroma that makes it uniquely beneficial in aromatherapy above its other linalool peers.

Uses

Cosmetic
  • Apply one to two drops Basil oil to pulse points during warm weather for a cooling sensation on the skin.
  • Apply one drop Basil oil to the back of neck while studying or reading for an energizing aroma.
  • Combine one drop Basil oil with five to ten drops Fractionated Coconut Oil and use during a soothing massage.
  • Combine one drop Basil oil and one drop Tea Tree oil with five to ten drops Fractionated Coconut Oil, then apply to neck and behind ears for a skin-soothing experience.
Food
  • Add up to 1 drop Basil oil to extra-virgin olive oil for an Italian bread dip.
Household
  • Diffuse one drop Basil oil with Lime oil, Bergamot oil, or Peppermint oil for an invigorating aroma.
  • Diffuse Basil oil for a relaxing fragrance while studying, reading, or finalizing a project.

Directions for Use

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
Internal use: Dilute one drop in 120 mL of liquid.
Topical use: When used topically, dilute with carrier oil as needed for skin sensitivity.

Cautions

Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas.
