Holy basil essential oil, Ocimum sanctum, is considered a sacred plant in Hinduism. It has been used medicinally for centuries in India to help ward of illness and to aid in digestion. Holy basil essential oil is a main remedy in ayurvedic medicine to promote good health and well being. The plant has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-spasmodic properties. The strong herbaceous scent blends well with citrus oils and florals. Use well diluted when using on the skin, no more than a 1-2%.
Our Essential Oils are 100% natural, undiluted, therapeutic grade oils. Essential Oils are highly volatile, meaning they readily evaporate, transforming from liquid to vapour. Keep your oils out of sunlight, but do not refrigerate. When deciding on a lid, there are a few things to keep in mind. Droppers are great when working on recipes, because you can count the drops, but if you store the dropper in the vial, the oil will eventually deteriorate the rubber, ruining your precious oil. So, store separately, especially if you do not use the oil promptly. Wands are good for skin application. The reducers are good for thinner viscosity oils but not for heavy oils like frankincense. Tap the bottom of the bottle to deliver the oil. Cautions: This information is for educational purposes only, it is not intended to treat, cure, prevent or, diagnose any disease or condition.

Do not use Essential Oils while pregnant and NEVER, EVER INGEST ANY ESSENTIAL OIL. As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. 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.)
