Basil Oil is a great oil to diffuse when you need to uplift your mood, improve mental clarity and alertness, and it’s also great for memory. As a natural stimulant that works on the adrenal cortex and the nervous system as a whole, it’s also beneficial for fighting adrenal fatigue, brain fog, lack of energy, migraines, headaches, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and jet lag.

It has a calming effect on the nervous system, reduces stress and helps promote deep sleep.

Diffuse it at least 2 hours before going to bed to help improve your sleep and also in the morning if you have a hard time getting out of bed, as it gently and naturally energizes the mind.

Colds, other respiratory conditions, and overall support for respiratory health: direct inhalation with the help of a nebulizer or diffuser.

Overall well-being: diffuse it a few times a day for 30-60 minutes as needed to improve your overall immune system.

Antimicrobial and antifungal: diffuse it in your home to fight yeast, mold and bacteria in general.

Topical Application

Whole body massage: dilute it in any carrier oil.

Arthritis, muscle aches and menstrual cramps: a few drops will create an aromatic bath to soothe these problems or apply a hot compress to the area of discomfort.

Aromatic bath: for a relaxing and uplifting spa experience at home dilute the oil in bath salts before adding to a full bath.

Internal Use

Culinary use: while fresh basil is a very popular ingredient, especially in Mediterranean cuisine as well as many other recipes, in its oil form, basil is much more powerful due to its high concentration. The compounds found in basil oil contain powerful antioxidants and other beneficial chemicals. Add a drop of oil to your favorite recipes to replace the fresh herb (if the oil is a spice or fruit then replace the word accordingly as necessary) if you don’t have them at hand, or when you want to get more flavor to your recipe. Please be sure to use only CERTIFIED ORGANIC OILS, especially for internal use. As a general rule, dilute one drop of oil in minimum 4 fl ounces of liquid, and make sure you read first the safety considerations for this oil.

Anti-viral and microbial: add a drop to a quart of water or tea to help you fight against viruses and infections.

 Other Uses

Shampoos, cosmetics and other personal care products: add a few drops directly into your toiletry containers.

Home Use: as a germ fighter or as an antibacterial solution add a few drops to a spray bottle filled with water and use it to clean your kitchen and bathroom surfaces. 

Oil Specific: relatively non-toxic, but may cause irritation to people with sensitive skin. Avoid during pregnancy.

General: keep out of reach of children and pets. Not for internal use unless taken under the supervision or recommendation of an aromatherapist professional. Do not use undiluted on skin, eyes, or mucus membranes; it could cause allergic reactions. Always test first on a small portion of your skin. If you are pregnant, consult with a healthcare provider/ professional experienced with essential oils as some essential oil are less tolerated while others are well loved by pregnant women.

Storage and Handling:the shelf life of ESSENTIAL OILS is usually around 1 year after they're opened, and up to 2 years when unopened. All essential oils oxidize and are subject to lose their therapeutic value and aromatic quality in time. Essential oils benefit from proper storage and handling. Avoid keeping essential oils in a location that is prone to sudden temperature changes such as the bathroom or kitchen. Store them in a cool, dark place, away from heat and light.
