Infusions or aqueous extracts of plants and carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils for use on sensitive skin. You can make your gift basket special by including basil for sharpening concentration, getting rid of depression, and migraines. However, if you are gifting the basket to a pregnant woman, you should leave out the basil oil, because of the emmenagogue chemotypes present in it.
This Basic Sampler Gift Set is an excellent starter pack or beginner kit for people starting their adventures in aromatherapy. The kit contains the six essential oils that have the most common uses in the home for cleaning, disinfecting and health, as well as an information sheet with hints for usage. This beautifully boxed set is a great addition to a diffuser purchase.
