What is Basil Oil ?

Properties & Uses:
Energizing *Focus *Home and Garden *insect_repellent *January *Spring *Stress *Summer - Playtime *Uplifting *

Sweet Basil essential oil has a fresh, green, spicy fragrance that is inviting and refreshing. It is distilled from the flowering plant and is light greenish-yellow in color. Basil oil has the stimulating properties of mint, and is in the same plant family. Basil is a great oil to burn in aroma lamps while working or reading, it helps you to concentrate and uplifts your mood. It is uplifting, clarifying, and strengthening.

With basil's stimulating and energizing properties, it is used to improve appetite and can gently refresh the body and mind. A point of interest is that it can be used as an insect repellent. However, if you are too late, use a few drops of the essential oil to take the sting out of the insect bites.

Basil blends especially well with bergamot, clary sage, rosemary, geranium, and the citrus oils such as lemongrass, or lime. It is a lovely mood enhancer and one of my favored additions when putting together a mind clarifying blend for the aroma lamp, diffuser, or mister. Diffuse basil essential oil in an aroma lamp to lift depression and clear the air in a stuffy room.
