Basil shares a common lineage with its native country India, having been cultivated there for over 5000 years. It quickly spread over the continent and found itself at home throughout the Mediterranean as well.
Basil essential oil contains a myriad of beneficial properties, most notably it’s anti-infectious and anti-bacterial properties. Studies have proven basil oil to effectively combat bacteria and fungus. Other virtues include its warming effect which promotes circulation and the stimulation of blood with vital nutrients. It is also considered antiviral and has had success in treating the herpes simplex virus. Its sharp scent helps to improve memory and surmount mental fatigue.
Basil (sweet) essential oil is a delightful addition to cosmetic preparations, personal care formulations, soaps, perfumery, and aromatherapy.

I have used this in a blend I wanted to make for fighting an infection. I have to agree with those who mentioned detecting the faint scent of anise or licorice.
Pretty useful as an additional EO for a basic collection - another fragrance called for in several of the blends I make.
Good oil, good smell
I am using this in my shampoo. I like it very much.
used this on my hubby who was having trouble with sinus issues and causing pain in his ear canal. Worked like a charm! No more pain :)
Love all Jade Bloom but this is one of the essentials I use for earaches
Just not a fan of the smell
I use this for cough, spasms and memory (can't remember if it works or not)
One of my favorite oils!
This is a great basil oil
I was worried about how this was going to smell when I diffused it, but I really enjoy it. So glad I didn't go with my gut on this one!
This was one of the first oils I purchased from Jade Bloom. Clean fresh scent perfect for diffusing in the kitchen. Add several drops to a drop of oregano for a spicier scented pick me up.
I love this oil. I use it mostly for my candles outside since it helps keep the bugs aways. It's fantastic for doing that.
I love the smell of this mixed.. otherwise it smells a bit like anise/ black licorice. It is delightful when a small amount is mixed with floral scents. Very clean!
This smells really great! I was expecting something stronger and maybe more herby smelling. But it actually is a nice sweet smell. In the diffuser mixed with some other oils it really carries well through the house. Some oils have a scent that doesn't carry very far. But this one really does diffuse well.
smells great. Going to use this in a recipe for a nice smelling perfume I found.
Great for beating off winter sickness!
This smells just like basil. I purchased it for all of its anti properties. I haven't used it in anything yet but plan to put it in a dropper bottle to have handy for any cuts or scrapes .
As I was looking forward to the basil after ordering peppermint and grapefruit with both beautiful scent. I'm very disappointed in the sweet basil. It's smells like black liquorice which is very distracting and doesn't smell anything like basil :( .

Basil is my "go to" oil for diffusing during school time. (My kids are home schooled.)
It works well for help with focus and concentration and smells delicious. Jade Blooms Basil is top notch.
Absolutely LOVE this oil! I used it in a diffuser and received a wonderful uplifting enjoyable aroma! a Must Have!
I love this in blends-to me it adds a depth to blends and I find it very soothing. Also, I heard it is good in a carrier and in a roller ball to help if one's ear hurts.
I just started using this oil as an antiviral topical for cold sores
I love the smell of this oil! I am excited to start using it for its healing properties, too!
Bought this for my mom to use for her gout pain. She loves it! Says it works better than anything she has tried. Smells great too. I will order it again.
This oil is sweet and invigorating scent. I use in diffuser and few drops in water or juice. This oil is not overpowering and helps give a boost in my day.
Love this oil its light and fresh. I use it daily to help balance my hormones
I used my sweet Basil today to make DIY body wash for a friend - mixed with Peppermint Castile soap, honey, aloe gel, coconut oil & Cedarwood oil - heavenely!
Such a nice, high quality oil. So many uses.
I wanted to try Basil & I adore the scent. Now I'll research what to use it for (other than cooking)
I absolutely love Basil (sweet basil). I grow it every year and make pesto and use the heck out of it in my cooking. I was worried that the EO would not smell as I expected but I was very happy to find that it does indeed smell just like my sweet basil plants! I am very happy with this and I am sure I will order more in the future!
Basil smells exactly like my plant!
Smells exactly like my weet basil plant growing in my backyard.
Another EO that I used for my chronic cough.
I had gotten this to enhance my headache blend. I usually get headaches from muscle tension in my shoulder blade and neck area. It helps better now that I added it to my current blend.
I made in a roller ball and use to fight fungus with Lavender in my toenails and it cleared it up.
Just sniffing this oil reminds me of Grandma's homemade pots of spaghetti sauce.
I'm experimenting with different EO recipes and wanted to create SUCCESS essential oil blend. The aroma is too culinary for me, but it serves its purpose.
I really enjoy this soothing oil.
I use basil oil and fractionate coconut oil for insect bites. It works extremely well for itching and also sinks the bites very quickly.
Love this smell and am inclined to love herbs that I grow and use in cooking. Good in diffuser and helps with my sinus headaches.
I always feel that this is such a refreshing oil! I love the clean bright smell, and it is my go to to eek out a bit of extra energy at the end of a long day.
I love it!
I'm new to oils and was thrilled to find Jade Oils. Not only have I learned a great deal through the Jade Bloom University, but I have confidence in all of their products! I love the scent of Basil as I am driving home from work at night to help me stay focused!
This Basil smells really great. I like diffusing it and I added a few drops to a cleaning solution that I made, which gave it a fresh scent. Looking forward to learning about other uses for this oil. This was my first Jade Bloom purchase and I will be ordering more items in the future. Very happy with the shipping, the oil quality, and packaging. Thank you!
I got this bottle of Sweet Basil free when it was offered with any other purchase. It is now going to be a staple in my collection. I absolutely LOVE the smell. It is nothing like I expected. I diffuse it in my office every day. It makes the office smell great & keeps me alert. I appreciate reading the other reviews & will try applying it on my nose for my sinuses too!
I use this on my ears when they start feeling like pressure is starting to build up with a cold. Helps keep them draining and not develop into full blown ear infections. I have no problem applying it neat, but some of my kids are sensitive to it so I dilute it with coconut oil.
I am experimenting with blends to spray on where needed... this is being added for bug bites and several other uses!! As always, Jade Bloom exceeds my expectations!!! Thanks so much!!
Beautiful Light Sweet Scent
My life has changed in an awesome way because of these oils .
With some dilution i use this topically on the bridge of my nose and behind my ears if I feel a sinus or ear issue coming on, I havnt been to the doctor since for a sinus infection or ear infection.
Love Basil! One of my favorite cooking spices and now one of my favorite oils. I made my own formula for joint pain and everyone who tries it says it is so relieving, especially on the hands!
I have been using Jade Bloom oils since just a couple of months after they got the company started and I have to say I could not be more pleased with the quality of these oils. I started out using Young Living Oils and I was convinced there were no oils out there as good as theirs, but then I discovered Jade Bloom and since I ordered my first bottle I have never looked back. Sure, there are a few oils that Jade doesn't have yet that I still order from them, but Jade Blooms are just as good as the others and at a much lower price. I have compared oils side by side and alternated use and Jade has stood up to the test every single time. These oils have literally changed my life. I use them every day. Also, the customer service at Jade is simply the best customer service I have ever had with any company. They are very prompt to answer all phone calls and emails. I haven't had many issues, mostly some leaky bottles, but the few that I have had were immediately addressed and replaced and/or compensated. I am a loyal customer for life and look forward to discovering more oils to come ! Give Jade a try ! You will be glad you did !
Help keep itching at bay a must have for any camper or hiker
Great to use in diffuse during the cold and flu season.
Speeds healing time of bug bites and scrapes.
No more itchy bug bites !
Just put a drop on a bug bite and BAM!! No itchies.
I was doing yard work recently and got some ant bites around my ankles, when i first noticed them i went to apply this on immediately and the bites never formed!
Great for so many things!
If you've ever woken up with an annoying itchy bug bite, simply put a couple of drops of this Basil oil from Jade Bloom and it's gone almost immediately. I've been using oils for more than 15 years and this one is the highest quality Basil I've ever used.
I have been using this for my children when they get really bad earaches and it provides them relief very quickly. I usually dilute it with some avocado oil that I have in a 50/50 ratio and then rub it behind and around their ears. It works great!
