    Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum

    Plant Part: Leaf

    Country of Origin: India

    Method of Extraction: Steam Distillation

    This oil’s aroma is warm, spicy and herbal. Generally used as an antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, pain reliever and antibacterial, it offers a wake-me-up aroma. Basil is a wonderful addition to many perfume blends, it is said to work as a brain and memory stimulant and soothes stress, depression, and mental fatigue.

    Blended with Rosemary verbenon makes an excellent blend to be used as an external application on the hair and scalp to stimulate growth and condition hair. Basil is also indicated for urinary infections, rheumatoid arthritis and insufficient digestive enzymes–used in a massage blend. Good for tired, overworked muscles, chest infections and digestive problems. Blends well with bergamot, lavender, neroli and verbena.

    Our basil EO has contents of 70-72% of methyl chavicol and 15-18% of linalool. There is no written or concrete evidence that the content of methyl chavicol in Basil EO is a carcinogen. The day this evidence is forthcoming, it will most likely indicate carcinogenicity applies to cases of internal consumption or for very extensive and/or frequent applications of the oil directly to the skin.

    Very herbal smelling - great with lemon
    This oil is very strong and you don't need very much of it, but when blended with lemon essential oil it smells out of this world tasty!
    Green, sharp and slightly bitter.
    This smells very green, sharp and slightly bitter. I don’t get any roundness here, but a rather leafy and astringent effect that is very energizing. I think it is relatively far from the fresh basil smell. The anise side of fresh basil seems to be a little off, behind the green front, though you still can smell it, but in a sweet and soft way. The whole effect smells like wet leaves – the beautiful smell of wet green leaves after a refreshing rain.
    Smells like licorice
    Good oil, smells like basil with a licorice back note. Green, clean fragrance.
    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.
    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
    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
    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
    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!!
