They mean the same thing, and for the most part are interchangeable.

-longer answer below-

The only difference I can think of is that "essentially" functions as an adverb, so you can put them directly in front of the thing you're modifying.
•He essentially ruined the holidays.
•The cat essentially leapt from four story tall building. (this implies that the thing it jumped off of was NOT a 4 story building)

both can be placed in the middle(as an interruptor):
•The paper plane, in essence, was a metaphor for his childhood.
•Chopsticks, in essence, are a terrible way to eat porridge.
•How he viewed things, in essence, was through the perspective of a child.
•How he viewed things, essentially, was through the perspective of a child.

They can both be used in the beginning of the sentence:
•In essence, he caused her death.
•Essentially, he caused her death.

Or in the end, but slightly differently
•That shirt was blue in essence.
•That shirt was blue, essentially.

Q: essentially ve basically arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Both are used frequently by native speakers to shorten a long list, story, task, or request. When used like this: "Basically, he had a really bad attitude so I told him to leave." either one can be used and they mean the same thing.

If you wanted to be more specific, essentially usually means that certain points are more important.
"I need you to clean the house today."
"Sure, what needs to be cleaned?
"Essentially, just vacuum the carpet and wash the dishes, but if you have time anything else would be great!"

Basically is used to simplify something. It can imply that the speaker or the listener is in a hurry, most of the detail is unimportant, or that something may be complicated or hard to explain.
"That sounds really complicated, could you say that again?"
"Basically, I'm working late tonight, and I need you to pick up a few things at the store. I'll leave you a list and some money on the counter."

Most native speakers just use these words interchangeably, and are just making something shorter.
