Also, if you are pregnant, please avoid using it.
Long-term use is said to be potentially toxic. After using it for 1-2 weeks, try to use other essential oils and do not use it continuously for a long time.
There are many different types of basil. French basil is not very strongly toxic and low-irritating, so it is suitable for aromatherapy.
