Basil Essential Oil

Sweet basil got its name from ‘Basileus’, a Greek word for ‘king’. That’s why today it is considered as the king of herbs! Basil has long been used in ‘Ayurvedic’ treatment - a holistic body healing which was first practiced in Ancient India.

Commitment to Quality

With the safety of your home in mind, we’re meticulous about every step of our process. To make sure each plant reaches its potential, we carefully and ethically choose a region where it will thrive. Then we work with our farmers. When our plants have reached maturity, they are harvested safely and fairly. From there we collect their natural essential oils through either cold-pressing or steam-distillation. Every batch is then tested to ensure 100% purity.
