Basil Essential Oil
Basil essential oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic oil. Because of these qualities, it is a main ingredient in our Tired Tootsies Salve and Tired Tootsies Roll-on, products that were created for pain relief and marketed for foot pain, although highly effective on many other types of pain. This oil can also be blended at a very low dilution with other oils (such as bergamot, lavender, peppermint, geranium, patchouli, Roman chamomile, mandarin, myrrh and clary sage) to be used for menstrual cramping.
Basil essential has the strong aroma of the basil herb.
With its strong aroma of basil herb, we recommend blending basil essential oil with other soothing oils like lavender, orange and lemon before using it for a balanced aroma.
