Basil Essential Oil

Plant and Oil Description

From mouthwatering pesto to traditional medicinal practices, basil is a favorite aromatic herb worldwide. The plant grows best in warm, tropical regions and is native to Africa and Southeast Asia. It is part of the flowering mint family, producing small ivory blossoms. Basil means “royal plant”, named because its fragrant, earthy aroma was often used to create royal perfumes. 


What’s it Good For?

  1. Joint and muscle pain – Massage the pain away with SenseLAB’s gentle basil oil. Strong anti-inflammatory capabilities have been demonstrated in laboratory studies, and may help relieve the pain associated with arthritis, back pain, repetitive motion injuries, sports injuries, and more. Dilute with a carrier oil and combine SenseLAB’s ginger essential oil for even more anti-inflammatory benefits.
  2. Bug bites – Basil’s anti-inflammatory agents make it a safe, natural method of relieving the itchiness and discomfort caused by bug bites. In addition, antimicrobial properties work at the same time to help prevent infection. Apply our basil oil with a carrier oil to spot-treat bug bites.
  3. Hair health – Add SenseLAB’s basil essential oil to shampoo or conditioner and lather into the scalp for an all-around hair makeover. Basil oil works to enhance shine and speed up hair growth by stimulating hair follicles to help hair grow in healthy and strong. The fresh, herbaceous scent is an added bonus!
  4. Nausea – Basil is widely used in folk medicine to keep nausea at bay. Add our basil essential oil to a vaporizer and breathe in the steam. No vaporizer? No problem. Boil hot water, add a few drops of basil oil, drape a towel over your head, and inhale the steam.
  5. Women’s health – Menopausal hot flashes, beware! Aromatherapy providers believe basil can increase estrogen and help balance your mood. Massage our basil oil into your feet or the back of your neck to alleviate hot flashes.
