Smells like licorice

Rating: 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

Good oil, smells like basil with a licorice back note. Green, clean fragrance.

Dark Basil

Rating: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

I was surprised by the scent because to me it was almost like basil mixed with anise but once diluted smells better. Now I really like it! Happy with my purchase.

Clean and green

I use alot of basil oil and love this one. It is light yet sustains it's scent for a long time. I use it in cp soap with rosemary and lemon. Like a fresh garden.

Cool with me

Rating: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

Definitely has some great benefits with this oil. Personally I have to be careful with the amount I use. The smell is STRONG for me! Look forward to using this in a lot more things though. Thank you Camden Grey!

Fresh

What a great scent. I try it lots of combos but my favorite is with lemon and spearmint. Such a "green" unisex scent :)

Try it with lemongrass

Rating: 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

This oil doesn't smell as "sweet" as I thought it would, and does not have that "green" smell of fresh basil. It is spicy yet restrained, and is rather weighty. I blended it with lemongrass EO (also from Camdengrey, more than 6 years old and still kicking) and it smells wonderful. I know, I know, basil and lemongrass makes you think of Thai food. No, it does not smell like spicy food, but it definately smells exotic.

Staying Power

I got some on my dress and I could smell it for hours with out it decreasing in scent. Many compliments received also.

Dark and peppery

Rating: 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

I just bought this E.O. and it smells more like my concept of basil, rather than sweet basil. It has rich hints of black pepper and anise - and reminds more of Italian cookery than the green herbaceous smell I'm used to from "sweet" basil. Still good though! I'm going to try it with some orange oil & see how it goes.

Basil for spider bites

Rating: 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

I had heard that basil oil cancels the toxic venom of spider bites, well I got bitten from a hobo spider that has the same toxic effects as a recluse spider. I started using it and omg the skin that started dying stopped and healed!!

Good blender

Rating: 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5

Nice herbal scent, not really special enough to stand on it's own, but works well with "softer" fragrances like lavender or citrus oils like sweet orange to give them a more "greenish" aroma. I mixed one part with one part lemongrass EO to make a nice green-smelling CP bar, seems to be holding scent well.

Plays well with others

Rating: 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

I tried Basil EO in candles then moved on to see how it perfect in HP soap. Mixed Basil EO with Citrus FO & Black Pepper EO and it made a nice spicy clean smell. The soap is about 2 months old now and fragrance is still strong. I've asked others to give me feedback on the scent combo and all like it. By itself, the Basil isn't strong enogh to provide good staying power but when blended seems to perform better.
