Usage tips

Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with care. Even if essential oils have been used since Antiquity, their mode of use and the precautions for use are often poorly known. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to it to find out about the traditional modes of use.

Here are some examples of use 


Use in the bathAs essential oils are not soluble in water, they must be mixed with an emulsifier before being poured into the bath. For example, they can be mixed with a liquid soap or a neutral shampoo (1 tablespoon). As a general rule, it is recommended not to exceed 10 drops per bath and not to stay in the bath for more than 20 minutes. For basil, it acts as a tonic and general stimulant. It is also good for joint and muscle pain.


Application by massage or compress

It is advisable to mix a few drops of essential oil with a vegetable oil (sweet almond, jojoba, macadamia, rose hip, argan, olive, etc.) to use it as a massage oil.

"Bloating and difficult digestion": To promote digestive comfort and relieve bloating, 2 to 3 drops diluted in a little vegetable oil on the stomach.

"In case of agitation, helps to relax": To reduce stress and overwork, 2 to 3 drops diluted in a little vegetable oil on the solar plexus and the wrists. This essential oil is also mentioned as likely to bring, before an operation, a deep relaxation comparable to that of pre-anesthetics.

"Heavy legs": To promote good circulation and reduce the sensation of heavy legs, 3 to 5 drops in 10 ml of vegetable oil.


Oral useFor difficult digestion (heartburn, aerophagia, bloating) put 1 to 2 drops of basil essential oil in 1 teaspoon of honey or on a neutral tablet, 2 to 3 times a day (idem for a state of general tiredness, nervousness, stress or intellectual fatigue).

Use by diffusion


With its pleasant, sweet, slightly aniseed scent, basil is a good general tonic and helps to purify the air. This essential oil in diffusion will act against general fatigue and intellectual overwork. Moreover, it will be very good against nervousness, anxiety and stress, but also hot flushes. When diffused, basil oil is also a very good mosquito repellent.

Note : For diffusion, you can use our 30 and 100 ml bottles (organic essential oil packaged by Penntybio, certified AB for Golgemma).

100% pure and natural oil

Accéder au dossier

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
