Basil Essential Oil Information

Basil Essential Oil (Ocimum basilicum) is also commonly known as Sweet Basil, Thai Basil, and St. Joseph's Wort. Rocky Mountain Oils’ Basil Essential Oil features a strong herbal, spicy, sharp, and licorice‐like aroma, presenting a middle‐top fragrance note.

One of the oldest medicinal herbs still in use, Basil Essential Oil is part of the Rocky Mountain Oils Relief collection. It offers a multitude of health benefits that go far beyond its pain relief capabilities. Basil Essential Oil may help support the respiratory system and digestive system. The herbal oil works to increase hair health, especially in combination with Rosemary, Lavender, and Jojoba oils.

The licorice-scented oil also helps relieve a range of occasional digestive discomfort, including nausea, indigestion, abdominal cramps, and motion sickness. Tired and achy? Basil Essential Oil can help bring about relief to overused muscles and joint tissue when applied topically with a carrier oil. The strong fragrance makes the oil perfect for aromatherapy. Use it to boost mental clarity, increase alertness, and fight tension.

Basil vs Holy Basil

Basil and Holy Basil are from two different plant species and have different chemical constituents. They can, however, be used for common purposes. The choice of which to use is usually based on aroma preference.

Holy Basil’s aroma is strong, warm, spicy, sweet, and fresh
Basil’s aroma is herbal, spicy, sharp, and licorice-like

Caution - Hot Oil: Always dilute hot oils with a carrier oil to prevent skin sensitization.
