- Basil, Organic
Ocimum basicilicum Linalool (Sweet basil)
Labiatae family (lamiaceae)
Distilled in Egypt from certified organically grown plants. This basil is the linalool chemotype--the basil to use in massage oils.
Basil grows wild all over the Mediterranean and is hardy enough to grow almost anywhere, but it is a native of India. It's a culinary herb, of course! Summertime means basil and tomatoes, for sure.
Be careful if using basil in the bath and dilute it because it will probably burn your skin otherwise.
