The fresh, green scent of Basil ct. methyl chavicol Essential Oil blends beautifully with the sweeter aroma of licorice with just a hint of spice in this essential oil. This methyl chavicol chemotype of basil (also known as the estragole chemotype) is a potent specimen, and a very little bit will go a long way when it comes to blending. The initial sweetness of the oil is tempered by a spicy, peppery dry down while still holding true to the herbaceous qualities first noticed upon initial exposure.

Another essential oil with uses that span the wellness spectrum, you will be hard-pressed not to find a use for Basil ct. methyl chavicol Essential Oil. It can aid in calming and promoting harmony in the midst of more chaotic times while also providing a refreshing element to topical uses. It also acts as a catalyst in settling restless, stagnant energies that need a bit of assistance in moving on.

Try pairing it with some sunny citrus and the bright, lemony notes of may chang or lemon myrtle for an encouraging and uplifting blend

Basil ct methyl chavicol Essential Oil Safety Info

In Essential Oil Safety, Tisserand and Young (2014) recommend a dermal maximum of 0.1%, but basil’s strength of aroma is sure to stand out even at low dilutions, may inhibit blood clotting. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (December 2, 2013). AZW3 file  Reading the full profile for Basil ct. methyl chavicol Essential Oil is highly recommended by your DeRu Extracts staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
