Steffan Arctander describes
the aroma of the Basil Essential Oil as “sweet and spicy, slightly green, fresh
with a faint balsamic-woody undertone and a lasting sweetness.” Generally
speaking there are two types of sweet basil; Mediterranean type and Reunion
type. However, this herb has been hybridized extensively producing many unique
nuances. The Mediterranean variety, also called true sweet basil, contains
higher percentages of the natural constituents, cineol and d-linalool. The
Reunion variety is higher in methylchavicol. This is the Mediterranean variety.

Sweet basil essential oil contains numerous health-promoting
properties that can relieve headaches and migraines. According to Dr. Jae B.
Park's research for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, sweet basil is
anti-inflammatory to bring down swelling, antiemetic to ease nausea that might
accompany your headaches, antispasmodic to help spasms causing a headache and
analgesic to relieve your pain.

To use basil essential oil when you have a headache, simply
smell the oil from the bottle, put it in a diffuser, or for migraines, put some
in the palm of your hands and cup them over your nose (inhaling through your
nose and exhaling out your mouth). While you might not think the smell of basil
will have any effect, the scent of essential oils travels to the limbic area of
your brain and your brain releases chemicals in response. In the case of basil,
your brain will release chemicals to stimulate and relieve pain. If you prefer,
add one drop basil oil to 1 tbsp. carrier oil, such as fractionated coconut
oil, and massage the blend into your temples, along the hairline of your
forehead, and at the brainstem area of the back of your neck. Dilute basil in a
carrier oil 1:1 before applying it to your skin. Inhale the aroma for a time,
every ten minutes, until the migraine is gone.

Basil has been widely used by ancient cultures such as India
for medicinal purposes (Ayurveda). The herb was used for diarrhea, coughs and
mucous discharges, constipation and indigestion, and skin diseases.

This is the better type of basil to use on children; properly
diluted, of course.

Warning: Although they are natural, essential oils can
occasionally have side effects when used improperly and can sometimes cause
allergic reactions. Specifically, basil is known to aggravate sensitive skin.
If you use basil topically, test a small amount of diluted (1:1 with a carrier
oil) essential oil on your skin for a reaction before applying it to a large
area. Basil can also overexcite you or, conversely, cause you to feel tired and
cloudy if you use too much. Consult a certified aromatherapist for more
information on basil and its proper uses. This oil and basil in any other form
should be avoided by pregnant and breastfeeding or nursing women. On the other
hand, some people suggest that it increases milk flow.

clove bud, geranium, lime, lemon, hyssop, juniper, eucalyptus, neroli,
