Blends Well With:

"This stuff is phenomenal. I made some of my favorite soap with it, and I am so glad Soapgoods carries basil EO because I can't find it elsewhere. It was easy to work with, held its scent, and didn't accelerate my trace at all!

It's a very spicy basil with an undertone of sweetness, but if you wanted more ""freshness"" I imagine it would pair nicely with lemon."
Really lovely stuff! Fresh and masculine scent. Mixes well with a wide variety of oils.
Not the 'fresh' aroma I was expecting. this one is a little on the sweet side without the herbaceous bite. Good for blending though!
I really like this essential oil. Very herby and a bit sweet. Blends nicely with other herb scents and lemongrass.
A stimulating & energizing scent, especially when blended with rosemary & mints. I really appreciate Soap Goods providing GC analysis on this product - am looking forward to having access to GC reports on all Soap Goods essential oils soon!
