Top 6 Uses For Basil Oil

Basil oil isn’t a therapeutic oil that many people commonly think of using. Instead of it creating ideas of therapeutic uses, it may make you hungry instead for Italian food. I like to think of basil oil as the little oil that could. It has so many amazing properties and uses that many people would be surprised to know about. So surprise!

Here they are:

1. Mental Focus:

Basil oil is awesome for keeping your mind sharp and focused. It is also great for any anxiety you may be feeling. I’ve used it for late night study sessions in college to try and keep on track. It made a huge difference in my ability to focus on what I needed to read and study. If you’re feeling sleepy, this will perk you right up and help get you ready for the day!

2. Sore Muscles/Joint:

This oil helps to soothe sore joints and muscles while also providing a cooling sensation for your skin AND helps to increase blood flow. Basil oil makes for a wonderful massage oil when diluted in a carrier oil, such as coconut oil. It creates a perfect trifecta for your skin and body when used in this way.

3. Skin:

Basil oil is commonly used in many skin and hair products. When it is massaged into the skin or scalp it boosts the luster of your skin and hair, taking it from drab to fab.

4. Respiratory:

If you use a diffuser or humidifier, you need basil oil in your life. Breathing in the oil can increase airflow through your respiratory tract if you are having issues from an infection or asthma.

5. Fatigue:

If you are feeling exceptionally sleepy for some reason, pop open that bottle of basil oil! Rub a couple drops on the bottoms of your feet or use them in a diffuser to wake up. It works like a cup of coffee.

6. Infection:

You can also use basil oil on minor wounds as an antibacterial rub. Basil oil has antiseptic properties so it will help with bug bites or stings, minor scrapes or cuts, and itchy skin.

See! There is so much that basil oil has to offer. Don’t pass it off as a yucky oil that will make you crave your Grandma’s sauce. If you’re looking to mix it with another therapeutic oil for a blend, lemongrass, peppermint, and bergamot are all excellent choices.
