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
This company rocks!
My life has changed in an awesome way because of these oils .
Love sweet basil
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!
GREAT QUALITY OILS
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 !
