Basil essential oil

Basil essential oil

(Ocimum basilicum)

topical aromatic

Basil essential oil is used aromatically and topically while Basil Vitality essential oil is a dietary supplement and therefore can be ingested.

Basil has a warm, spicy, yet herbal aroma that is very calming. Basil provides great benefits to both the mind and body due to its high linalool content, making it an ideal application to promote relaxation when diffused or applied to the temples and back of the neck. Basil is cooling to the skin when mixed with a carrier oil. When diffused, Basil helps promote focus and alertness.

Basil is a “hot” oil which means you should dilute it before applying directly to the skin.  Start with a 1:1 ratio and start slowly to avoid potential skin irritation.
