With a warm, spicy, herbal aroma, Basil essential oil is very versatile. With its high linalool content, the oil provides great benefits to the body and mind. Basil oil is derived from the Ocimum basilicum plant which is native to tropical Asia and Africa. The leaves and flowering tops of the plant are steam-distilled to produce the oil.
There are two common forms of basil oil available:
· Sweet basil oil (also known as French or European basil oil) - a pale-yellow mobile liquid, which holds a sweet-spicy fresh note with a balsamic-woody undertone and a lasting freshness.
· Exotic basil oil (also known as Réunion basil oil) - a pale yellow to pale green mobile liquid, which holds a slightly coarse-herbaceous, camphoraceous top note and displays an intense aniseed-like sweetness associated with the methyl chavicol content.
