    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.

    Basil for spider bites
    (Fulton, NY, US) | October 30th, 2010
    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
    (youngsville, NC, US) | July 19th, 2010
    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
    (Greenville, SC, US) | April 15th, 2010
    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.

Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.

    Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.

    HOW OILS ARE DISPENSED: All our products are dispensed by weight. EO's in 8 oz. through 2 lbs. - amber plastic pharmaceutical-grade bottle. EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail. It's our decision in which type of pail we dispense the product, metal cans are not readily available.
