Shelf Life of Sweet Basil Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Sweet Basil essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.


A sweet, peppery, warm, anise-like essential oil. Sweet Basil (Linalool chemotype) contains low methyl-chavicol, a potent phenolic-ether. Essential oils high in phenols may be toxic to the liver and a possible irritant to mucous membranes.

Essential oil of Sweet Basil possesses some fantastic properties. The combination of a higher linalool ( alcohol type) and smaller levels of methyl-chavicol (phenol / phenolic ethers) gives the best of both worlds: anti-microbial, nervous and immune system stimulant activity combined with the uplifting and balancing properties.

The anti-spasmodic properties of the phenolic-ethers are important also in relation to certain digestive and respiratory conditions and it may benefit them also.
