Pure organically steam-distilled essential oil of Basil, Ocimum basilicum, grown in Himalaya.
Also known as Sweet, True, or European Basil, this variety is high in Linalool, flavonoids, and antioxidants. It is the sweetest basil, and the safest for topical use.
This is a food-grade essential oil. The aroma and flavor are both spicy-sweet, green, herbaceous, very complex, with balsamic and subtle anise-like tones. Calming to the nerves, basil is also used in aromatherapy for mental clarity and relieving fatigue and headaches.
Therapeutic properties include anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, analgesic, and because it is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids it is also anti-aging for skin care. Often used as a soothing oil for skin issues like insect bites and psoriasis, it makes a great addition to massage oils and salves or lotions.
