Also known as Sweet Basil the Essential Oil is steam distilled from the delicate and beautifully aromatic leaves of the Ocimum basilicum plant which grows in the lush Himalayan valleys of Northern India. Basil Oil has a lively, spicy and distinct herbal aroma and is widely used in natural perfumery for its complex fresh green-herbaceous character and rich balsamic notes.
If used in cosmetic skin care preparations Basil oil has effective anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which may be useful to treat acne and pimples. It can also be used for treating insect bites as a repellent. Basil Oil can also be used as an anti aging agent as it is a rich source of flavonoids and antioxidants.
In Aromatherapy Basil Essential Oil is used as it’s naturally a stimulant. This essential oil is incredibly uplifting while at the same time soothing and calming to the nerves.
Pure Absolute Oils or Essential Oils should always be diluted with a carrier oil such as grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil before using on the skin. A patch test is recommended to see if your skin is sensitive to the product. If blending into creams, lotions, body butters etc, 1-2% maximum of the pure absolute oil or essential oil to 100% of the product is usually about right. With a dilution it is not necessary to dilute the oil as it is already diluted and can be used straight on the skin although a patch test is still recommended.
