- SOIL:SWEET BASIL OIL
This oil is extracted by steam distillation of the leaves and flowering tops of the basil plant. There are many chemotypes of this oil but the sweet Basil has a higher percentage of linalool, which is regarded as safe to use in aromatherapy. Sweet basil is enlivening, comforting and helpful for clarity and strength of mind as well as body systems.
Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum) Essential Oil is a good tonic for the treatment of depression and stress related headaches, especially migraine.
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).
