Harvested from the leaves and flowers of the basil herb bush, ocimum basilicum; an annual herb known for its purple-white blooms and its oval pointed green leaves.
With its light consistency and top note fragrance, basil essential oil’s light and refreshing tones and woody back-notes blend well with a number of other essential oils including; bergamot, clary sage, clove bud, lime, eucalyptus, juniper, lemon, neroli and rosemary.
