Latin name: Ocimum basilicum  
Source country: Egypt  
Appearance: Clear to pale yellow thin liquid.  
Aroma: Strong sharp spicy peppery smell.  
Derivation: The oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the herb  
which grows up to 3 feet.  
Chemicals: The main constituents are either methyl chavicol (in concentration over  
70%) linalool and eugenol. This gives basil its anise like aroma while it has a strong  
undertone of a clove like aroma (eugenol). There are many other terpenoids of lower  
concentration which gives basil a complex aroma.  
Uses: Basil as a herb is mainly used in cooking. The oil is less well used but is good for  
clearing the mind and is useful for students. It should not be sued to excess and a little  
goes a long way. It is sometimes used for respiratory tract problems such as bronchitis and  
sinus infections. It may be helpful in relieving gout since it reduces the amount of uric acid  
in the blood.  
Note: As with all pure essential oils, dilute appropriately with a suitable carrier oil  
before using on the skin. Do not take essential oils internally
