Sweet basil is a wonderful, fresh aroma. I love to use it in the diffuser for an energizing scent during the day. It blends well with citrus, rosemary, lavender and trees. It can also be blended in personal fragrance and used in massage oil. For topical, skin application, always dilute before using. Maximum strength for this oil is no more than 3% for adults. For sensitive skin, use less and do a patch test first before applying to any large skin area. Not recommended topically during pregnancy, nursing or for children under 8 years old.

These oils are bottled in precious violet glass. Eleven years of research went into the creation of this glass. The intention was to find the best shade of glass that would protect medicines from sunlight. The glass actually has crushed amethyst in it. I find it enhances the smell and preserves the shelf life. It's a much higher quality of glass than brown or blue glass. Many people have tried to persuade me to use cheaper, less expensive glass but my commitment is to use on the highest quality ingredients and packaging material possible. I won't compromise. I highly suggest you recycle the bottle once it is empty. You can soak it in bowl of soap and water and wash it out, use it for making your own persona blends. We sincerely hope you enjoy this wonderful essential oil.
