Basil (Organic) Essential Oil
Ocimum basilicum L.

100% Pure Essential Oil
Country of Origin: India

Certified to be Grown Organically

Primary Constituent: Estragole 73.61%
Linalool 18.73%

I prefer this basil over ociumum basilicum ct., due to the fact that it's sharp top note which is strong and camphorous comes in secondary as a warm woody aroma and overall the scent is dusty.

Product Use:
For use in aromatic diffusers. Basil is best when blended with other essential oils in lower proportions to the other other oils.  Its licorice herbaceous aroma smells really interesting when blended with citrus oils and with geranium and patchouli.

Try this combination:
Lemon x 5 drops
Patchouli x 3 drops
Geranium x 2 drops
Basil x 1 drop

Basil is a suitable essential oil in wash off products - but should be avoided in strong concentrations in products that stay on the skin.

NOTE: While basil is a culinary herb and edible - the essential oil should never be consumed due to the high Estragole content.
