Absolute Aromas Essential Oils Basil, Linalol Type - 10ml

  • Steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops, Basil essential oil is clear, sweet, spicy and yellowish in colour.


Product Description

  • Basil is a stimulating and clearing oil, useful when concentration is needed or when feeling tired and sluggish
  • Absolute Aromas has selected a True Sweet Basil Oil (Ocimum Basilicum) known as Linalol type
  • Exotic Basil Oil is also known as Reunion, Estragole, Methyl Chavicol type or, confusingly, Sweet Basil Oil
  • The main constituent, 70-88%, of Exotic Basil is Estragole (Methyl Chavicol) which is moderately toxic and irritating to the skin and has raised concerns that it may be carcinogenic
  • Try adding 1 drop of Basil and 3 drops of Lemon to the water in an oil burner to help create the right atmosphere for hours of exam revision or paperwork!

    There are several different types of basil oil
  • Often referred to as “joy of the mountains” in Greece, where the plant is still used in cooking and as a medicinal herb
  • Steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops, Basil essential oil is clear, sweet, spicy and yellowish in colour
  • This is the safest and most pleasant of the Basil oils used in aromatherapy
  • The Linalol type, with approximately 8% Estragole, is preferable for aromatherapy


Do not use during pregnancy.
Use the oil in moderation, especially by those with sensitive skin.


A blend of 1 drop each of Basil and Lavender in 10ml of Sweet Almond oil makes a good abdomen massage oil. Always massage the abdomen in a clockwise direction.


Absolute Aromas sources, professionally packages and presents over 100 pure essential oils, 22 carrier oils and a wide range of aromatherapy accessories of the highest possible quality. Each essential oil is sourced from established producers in the best country of origin for that particular oil. Every batch is subjected to rigorous testing by an experienced and qualified essential oils chemist, using methods such as gas chromatography. The same strict standards are applied to the rest of the Absolute Aromas range. Carrier oils are, wherever possible, organically-produced, cold-pressed and of the freshest quality. The specialist infused carrier oils are hand-made using organically-produced plant material infused in organic Sesame oil. We believe that as carrier oils usually make up 98% of an aromatherapy blend, their quality has a very significant impact on the efficiency of the blend.
