Strongly green, mild anise-like, sweet herbaceous scent with a soft balsamic undertone; very tenacious.

Our Sweet Basil ct Linalool essential oil has a strongly green, mild anise-like aroma; it is used in natural perfumery for its unique sweet herbaceous character and soft balsamic undertone. Linalool is the predominant chemical component in this species of Basil1 – 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.

 

Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is part of the Lamiaceae family – plants of this family have incredibly prolific and historic culinary and medicinal 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 find uses in traditional foods, teas and herbal remedies.

 

Sweet Basil is a lovely annual that displays simple white flowers and seems to embody modesty and quiet intensity. It is credited with the ability to imbue mental strength and clarity and as such is regarded as a useful study aid.
