Essential Oil - 473mL

Ocimum basilicum - Italy

Basil essential oil is obtained by the steam distillation of the leaves and flowers of the herb. The oil has a golden yellow colour with a hint of green. Basil essential oil is a stimulating oil and has moderate to good action against bacteria and fungi. Compared to exotic basil oils from the Comoro Island and Reunion Island, this essential oil has a fresher, less harsh scent. According to some references, Basil (the herb) has a long history of use throughout the world. For example, Plinius used it for epilepsy, Arabians used it for gonnorhea and mouth sores, Europeans use Basil against depression, and in India it is used in Ayurveda. Chartreuse is also made using Basil. Basil essential oil has a strong scent that can be described as fresh, sweet and spicy with a slight balsamic undertone and a longer lasting sweetness. It blends well with Bergamot, Clary Sage, Clove Bud, Lime, Eucalyptus, Juniper, Lemon, Neroli, and Rosemary. This oil may irritate sensitive skin so use in low concentrations and avoid this oil during pregnancy.
