Earth's Oils presents Basil essential oil, a pure and potent oil extracted from the leaves and stems of the Ocimum basilicum plant. This essential oil is 100% natural, undiluted, and of therapeutic grade, ensuring that you receive the maximum benefit from each drop. Our Basil essential oil is steam distilled from fresh basil plants grown in Egypt, where the warm, sunny climate and fertile soil yield the highest quality basil oil.

The Latin name for basil is Ocimum basilicum. The herb is a member of the mint family and has been used for its culinary and medicinal properties for centuries. The word basil comes from the Greek word basileus, meaning "king" or "royal," reflecting its esteemed place in ancient cultures. Basil essential oil has a warm, spicy, and herbaceous aroma that is uplifting, refreshing, and soothing to the mind and body.

Basil essential oil contains a variety of terpenes, including:

  • Linalool: known for its calming properties, making it beneficial for reducing anxiety, promoting relaxation, and supporting healthy sleep.
  • Methyl chavicol (also known as estragole): has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, making it useful for preventing infections, reducing inflammation, and supporting immune system function.
  • Eucalyptol (also known as 1,8-cineole): has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and expectorant properties, making it helpful for relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting respiratory health.

There are many potential benefits of using Basil essential oil. It has been traditionally used for its antiseptic, antispasmodic, and digestive properties. It may help to relieve nausea, cramps, and indigestion. Basil essential oil is also known for its ability to promote mental clarity and focus, making it helpful for studying or when you need to concentrate. Additionally, it may help to reduce respiratory congestion, ease sore muscles, and promote healthy skin.
