Essential oils are oils obtained from plant parts such as seeds, leaves, bark, roots, flowers and fruits with aromatic variations due to their essential content. One of the plants that can be extracted to produce essential oil is basil. Basil oil has components such as linalool, 1,8-cineol and the eugenol that can be utilised for antioxidant, antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory activities. The purpose of this study is to conduct a bibliometric analysis of basil oil using VOSviewer software. The data obtained came from the Scopus database with the keyword “basil oil” from 1964 to 2023. From the search results in the database obtained 316 documents about basil oil which were then carried out several analyses: 1) trend analysis of publication time, type, and language; 2) analysis of source titles, institutions, and countries that influence basil oil publications; and 3) analysis of the terms' occurrences. The bibliometric analysis of basil oil is expected to help in further research involving basil oil.
