I have just added the Essential Oil of Basil to our list of oils in our product line at the Twilight Therapy Store. A few of us have been using the oil to add flavor to our cooking oils and  have found it to be easy to work with as well as satisfying our tastes buds. 


Basil oil can be added to Olive Oil, SesesmeGrapeseed, Peanut, or coconut  oils and used to saute vegetables and/or other aromatic spices together.

  • TBLS Olive Oil
  • 1 Drop of Basil

Remember that the EO ( essential oil) is much stronger than the herb so the flavor will be powerful in minute amounts.
