Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is being grown for over 5 thousand years now and spice merchants brought it from India and the Middle East. The ancient Greeks called Basil ‘basilikon phuton’ which means ‘king’s herb’ and today’s common name is derived from this exact words. The oil is extracted from the whole green parts of a plant and is being possessed while distilling by a water steam. Naturally, Basil is being used in cuisine, alternative, holistic medicine but that aromatic weed is also connected with supernaturalism – spiritual beliefs and even different religions.

Store all essential oils in a tightly closed bottle in a cold, dark room away from children’s sight. Some Essential oils react with plastic containers so it’s not recommended to keep it that way.
