Basil+ (Ocimum basilicum) has a sweet, warm scent and flavour. This herb is found in a variety of dishes and is popular in both Asian and European cooking. With Basil+ essential oil, it’s easy to add this well-loved seasoning to whatever you like. Using an essential oil, you’ll get a brighter flavour than dried herbs without the hassle of fresh herbs.
Young Living’s Basil+ pairs well with savoury foods, but you can also add its sweet, slightly peppery flavour to any meal. Try Basil+ oil with sauces, breads, soups, chicken or seafood. Or try a sweet concoction like basil-strawberry lemonade. If you want a lighter basil flavour in your dish, dip a toothpick in the oil and swirl it in your dishes.
Flavour your favourite pasta sauce recipes with Basil+. Add Rosemary+ or Oregano+ for even more flavour.
Add to deli salads, Asian- or Italian-inspired soups and salad dressings or vinaigrettes to share with family and friends.
Boil pasta in basil-infused water for a subtle flavour.
Pair with lime juice and melons, such as watermelon and cantaloupe, for a fresh summer treat. For a more complex flavour profile, garnish with feta.
Mix with a mild tea, such as chamomile. Add a dash of honey to sweeten the experience.
