Product Overview

Our organic Sweet Basil ct Linalool essential oil has a strongly green, sweet herbaceous and uplifting aroma; it is used in natural perfumery for its unique fresh herbaceous character and rich balsamic undertone. Linalool is the predominant chemical component in this species of Basil - it lends a cool, gentle woody character to this oil. Also present is a much smaller percentage of methyl chavicol (aka estragol), a constituent responsible for the mild anise-like aroma.[1]

Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is part of the Lamiaceae family - plants of this family have incredibly prolific and historic value in many cultures. There are no less than two dozen species of Ocimum originating from countries as diverse as Egypt, Mexico, Iran, Italy, Greece, India and Thailand, and all of them share a multitude of traditional uses.

Sweet Basil is a lovely annual that displays simple white flowers and seems to embody modesty and quiet intensity. Credited with clarifying and enlivening qualities, the oil is particularly refreshing when added to a diffuser, or in blends for belly rubs or muscle and joint massage.
