Details Ingredients & Additional Information
Lemon Basil (Ocimum citriodorum) is a herb grown primarily in northeastern Africa and southern Asia for its strong fragrant lemon scent.

Basil oil is obtained through hydro distillation from fresh plant material. The Basil oil is thin transparent fluid with light yellow to yellow-green color with aroma characteristic of Basil. A native of Africa and Seychelles, it is grown as popular culinary herb and has small white flowers. The essence is distilled from leaves and has light greenish yellow with sweet green overtones. The Basil oil derived is known for intensely fresh, sweet-spicy and vibrant aroma.

Basil Essential Oil has a sweet lemon aroma with the characteristic basil herbal notes but the body notes linger with a complex lemon-clean scent. The citral content is a natural occurrence in this subspecies of Basil. It is in fact a hybrid of Ocimum Americanum and Ocimum Basilicum. Sometimes it is mistakenly referred to as lemon balm which is an entirely different plant. The properties usually attributed to other basil oils are also consistent with this pleasant variety.
