Basil earns its name from “basileum” – the Greek word for king. There are several types of Basil used in aromatherapy, but the one believed to be the best for therapeutic applications and perfumery is Sweet Basil of the linalol chemotype. Grown in the Mediterranean region and North Africa, our distillers harvest only the oval top leaves and pale pink flowers from sunny hillsides. The harvest is then steam-distilled in limited quantities.
The fresh, sweet, “green” scent of Sweet Basil essential oil is uplifting, clarifying and energizing. It is traditionally used for digestive, muscle, and chest massage. The aroma is useful during times of mental tiredness, stress, or when personal boundaries need strengthening. Best for use in a bath, compress, diffuser and massage.
Odor Family: Herbal, Anisic, Sweet-Spicy
