Basil Vitality Essential Oil

What is the Genus Species? Ocimum basilcum CT methyl chavicol

Why is this Information Important? There are seven different chemotypes of basil and over 40 varieties of basil. So this is definitely a plant you need to know a little information when selecting basil essential oils!

A chemotype (CT) is a designation that tells you that the species has different chemical constituents. This usually occurs because the plant is grown in a different area under a distinct climate that alters the chemistry.

This is extremely important information. Remember, even though they may share some similar constituents they are not at all the same.

Basil Chemotypes: Go to Basil Essential Oil Page for Info.

What is the Origin of the Plant Name? The Greeks referred to basil as "King of Plants"! From this reasoning, basil comes from a Greek word "basileum" meaning "king".

Why is this information so important? Its not, it's just a fun fact!

What Part of the Plant is Used? Leaves, stems and flowers

What is the ORAC Value? 54,000 µTE/100g

What Does this Number Mean? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item. Antioxidants have shown to reduce the risk of age related conditions! This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Oranges = 750; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!

How do I Use it?

Use diluted - 50:50 dilution (one part essential oil: one part vegetable oil). Then

  • Dietary Supplement: place several drops in capsule with olive oil and take internally.
  • Place in drinks, cocktails or smoothie.
  • Place in favorite sauce, soup, marinade or dressing recipe.
  • Aromatic - Diffuse

Can this Oil be used for Animals? Always start slow. With a small dog or cat use a toothpick amount to start. (Dip toothpick in bottle to get that amount). Dilute extremely well!.

I choose to use it in a specialty blend, rather than use it alone. The blends I use with basil are generally for stress and focus.

One of my favorite professionally blended oils for focus is Clarity Essential Oil. Great for horses and the riders!

Note about Animal Use: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Citrus products and oils in particular. Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.

What are the Safety Precautions? First, only use therapeutic grade essential oils! Basil essential oil has no known contraindications. It is Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) and allowed as a Food Additive (FA) for internal consumption by the FDA.

However, those with epilepsy should avoid using this oil. Additionally, children under 18 months and pregnant women or women who are breast feeding should NOT use this oil. Children under 6 years old should not use basil as a dietary supplement.

If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a healthcare professional prior to use.
