Scientific Name: Ocimum basilicum
Considered by the ancients as the “king of the plants”, basil oil was used to anoint kings. This oil has a long history of use for its protective, refreshing and soothing properties. It’s long been used as a spice in cooking.
Quality sweet basil essential oil (Ocimum basilicum) can be sourced from Egypt, India and France and is available wild-crafted, using the basil blossoms and leaves.
Always test a small amount of any essential oil first for sensitivity or allergic reaction. Do NOT use during pregnancy. May be sensitizing or “hot” to sensitive skin (dilute with carrier oil).
