Description

Steam distilled from the leaves, stems and flowers of the sweet basil herb, basil essential oil is colorless to pale amber with a thin consistency, presenting a middle-to-top fragrance note. Fresh, sweet and spicy with a faint balsamic, woody and licorice-like aroma, it is prized for its culinary versatility, and is well known for its effectiveness in pain relief as well. Used topically, it has a soothing, warming effect on the skin that goes deep into tired and achy muscles after a workout or a hard day at work. Its heady aroma has a calming effect, helping you to relax and unwind. Great for boosting mental clarity and concentration and for easing tension.

“What people are saying about us…"

Great carrier oil I have never used sweet almond oil before but am so glad I gave this a try! I mix it with the Zen blended essential oil. Its not greasy and goes on so smooth.

Great diffuser! I love my diffuser! It is quiet and the colors are nice. I also love that it has the option to not have a light on so I can use it at night in my room.

Eucalyptus is my favorite!I absolutely love this oil. It is such a soothing and refreshing oil. I love to diffuse this at night in my bedroom to help clear my head and relax.

I just love this sweet orange oil! It is uplifting and makes me feel happy and alert : ) I like to blend this oil with a few other Tru Gardens oils and diffuse in my house throughout the day.

This Florida Girl LOVES her Orange! Tru Gardens Sweet Orange is one of my favorite essential oils. It reminds me of driving through the Florida Orange Groves on a summer day.
