Basil Essential Oil Historical Data: Used extensively in traditional Asian Indian medicine, basil's name is derived from "basileum", the Greek name for king. In the 16th century, the powdered leaves were inhaled to alleviate minor headaches and as a tonic. The Hindu people put basil sprigs on the chests of the dead to protect them from evil spirits. Italian women wore basil oil to attract possible suitors. It was listed in Hildegard's Medicine, a compilation of early German medicines by highly-regarded Benedictine herbalist Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179).

I highly suggest educating yourself about the truth of essential oils by purchasing the Essential Oil Desk Reference book which contains a wealth of information on all of our products including details on each oil and what oils to use for specific situations.

Don't expect the same results unless you are using Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ Essential Oils and supplements. Also each person is unique and different in chemistry and toxicity levels, as well as emotionally and spiritually, so an oil that is suggested for an issue may not work as well as another. If a change is not apparent within three minutes, try another oil.
