100% Pure Therapeutic Basil Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum
Extraction Process: Steam Distilled
Part of the Plant Used: Leaves
Description: Basil Essential Oil has a sweet, spicy aroma. The Basil plant has been wildly cultivated for its edible leaves in all corners of the world. This plant has the leaves picked, dried, and ground down to make the seasoning that we are familiar with today. Many countries even use Basil leaves medicinally to help with pain, rheumatism, and muscle spasms. The benefits of Basil essential oil are similar and make it perfect to dilute in a carrier oil and massage strained muscles such as legs, back, knees, feet, and back of the neck for relief.
Common Use: Basil has been traditionally applied to help muscular spasms, respiratory conditions, cystitis, intestinal spasm, parasitic infections, muscle cramps, menstrual cramps, headaches, migraines, and mental and physical fatigue.
Directions: Recommended to properly blend in a carrier oil prior to topical applications. We recommend no greater than a 3.3% dilution. Patch test before use in case of sensitivity.
Cautions: Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding. If under a doctor’s care, consult your physician.
