One of the more popular contemporary types of basil, Basil Oil Organic is steam-distilled from the leaves of the Ocimum basilicum plant. This is a “methyl chavicol” type of basil, meaning it retains the spicy and savory profile that is indicative of a high concentration of that component. Organic basil is one of the most popular natural materials in the world, and the oil is used in everything from bathroom soap bars to steakhouse spice blends. Its fresh, aniseed-like top note blends well with other herbal ingredients, and basil oil pairs particularly strongly with ingredients such as bergamot, sage, and oakmoss. Versatile, aromatic, and tenacious, basil oil organic makes an excellent addition to any high-end spice blend or herbal soap perfume.
