Because of its high linalool content, this basil smells fabulous. It is an essential oil that I love to grab when I need mental stimulation and a bit of help focusing. In other words, it’s one of my “go to” oils to diffuse while I’m working. I appreciate the energizing aroma of Basil Essential Oil. This Mediterranean variety of Basil Essential Oil, also called true sweet basil, contains higher percentages of the natural constituents, cineol and d-linalool.

We do not recommend using Basil Essential Oil around children under 2 years old.
While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such. With all essential oils:
- Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas). The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
- Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
- Keep away from children.
- If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally. Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert. Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
