Basil (Sweet)

Ocimum basilicum ct linalool

Description

Our sweet basil essential oil is steamed distilled from the delicate leaves and flowering tops of the basil plant, Ocimum basilicum. This sweet basil essential oil is a ct linalool, meaning that it contains a higher amount of linalool than a typical distillation of other varietals of basil. Smelling this almost translucent oil is like stepping into the midst of a sun kissed field containing thousands upon thousands of the most fragrantly delicious sweet basil plants imaginable.

This warming oil is often used by aromatherapists when looking to:

  • clear the head
  • help relieve voluntary or involuntary muscle spasms
  • help promote a normal cough response associated with the common cold
  • promote healthy digestion
  • help alleviate nausea associated with daily living  

 Tip! Try blending with a couple drops of lavender when looking to relieve a stress induced headache.

Safety + Shelf Life

Safety information depends on the chemotype. The linalol chemotype is safe on the skin. Robert Tisserand's recommendation for linalol chemotype is maximum topical application of 3%, based on 15% eugenol content. Major concerns are for internal use of chemotype with high levels of estragole (methyl chavicol) content, as high levels are considered carcinogenic, and have produced DNA abnormalities in animals. Sweet Basil is not this chemotype. 

The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.
