Basil essential oil amplifies the soothing, sweet aroma of basil leaves and carries profound benefits as a versatile tool in aromatherapy, topical application, and an in-a-pinch substitute for fresh basil during cooking.
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.
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.
Add up to 1 drop Basil oil to extra-virgin olive oil for an Italian bread dip.
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.
