Basil Essential Oil
Alexander the Great is believed to have brought basil to ancient Greece. Basil is also considered a symbol of love, eternal life, purification, and protection in Hindu culture. In some folklore, basil is used as a good luck charm for protection and to attract wealth. Basil essential oil has an herbaceous aroma that refreshes the mind when inhaled and soothes fatigued muscles when massaged into the skin. Basil Vitality™ may support the circulatory and digestive systems when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Its sweet, herbaceous flavor makes it a great addition to your favorite savory recipes. Basil and Basil Vitality are the same essential oil.

Diffusing Blends with This Oil
These are approximate drops. Adjust recipes to your needs. If a recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops. Do you need more? Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.
Tip: When you first begin diffusing, start with less essential oil than listed in the recipes and build to more as desired. You should give your body time to adjust to the essential oils. Almost all the Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic which provides a cool-mist humidifier along with the essential oils. These diffusers are safe to run all day. Pay attention to the size of the room because the size will impact the intensity of diffusing. Nebulizers and atomizers are different than ultrasonic diffusers because they do not use water. For these, note the time limit for diffusing stated on each individual oil bottle.
