Basil Oil is colourless with a rich, refreshing, sweet, spicy green and piercing odour. It can be used on the digestive system, respiratory system, nervous system and with emotions.

The name is derived from the Greek "basilicon" meaning royal. Basil has a long history of use in India, where it is known as "tulsi" and is held to be sacred to the Hindu gods Krishna and Vishnu.
