Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum L. Also known as Sweet Basil.
Supports the body during times of nausea, inflammation, motion sickness, indigestion, constipation, respiratory problems, and bacterial infections.
Basil has a sweet, spicy, fresh scent with a faint balsamic woody back note and a lasting sweetness that makes for a strong top note. Can promote increased clarity of thought and clear the mind.
In the Greek language, its name means 'royal remedy' or 'king'. In the 16th century, powdered basil was used to treat migraines and chest infections.
Our Organic Basil hails from carefully tended fields in India.
Can be applied topically at a 3% dilution (3 drops per 1 ounce of carrier oil); 1 drop per 1 hour in a diffuser for essential oils: do not ingest; contact with eyes should be avoided.
