We love basil essential oil because we find it to be an invigorating and refreshing aroma. Try diffusing it after a difficult day to renew your spirits and clear your mind. This is the basil we recommend for any topical use.
Salvatore Battaglia recommends Basil essential oil for those times when we might feel vulnerable or indecisive.
Cautions: This basil is the preferred choice for those with sensitive skin due to its high linalool and low methyl chavicol concentrations. For topical use dilute to a maximum of 3%.
