Basil Essential Oil

Ocimum basilicum

Botanical Source: Vietnam

Physical and Psychological Effects:

Basil oil can bring clarity and focus to our cognitive selves. The single aroma of this pure basil will help to clear the mind and provide mental strength; however, the real beauty of this oil comes alive when blended with others. A hint of basil in a blend almost always brings the formula to a new cosmic level, especially for balancing issues. Try a hint of basil added with geranium and orange oil. 

Basil oil can also be used in your natural cleaning products and muscle blends. 

Blends Well With: 

Bergamot, black pepper, the chamomiles, clary sage, geranium, juniper, lavender, orange, and rosemary.


Top note. Herbaceous, camphoraceous notes with a lasting sweet and spicy undertone. 


To balance your mind, add 2 drops basil, 4 drops geranium and 3 drops sweet orange in a diffuser.

Cautions: Do not use in pregnancy. When added to a massage blend only use at 0.1% dilution. Sweet basil oil is GRAS (generally regarded as safe)
