Some information about basil
Basil is an annual herb with oval, shiny, dark, downy leaves that bloom in late summer. Native to India, basil has a very strong fragrance and white flowers at the end of the upper axes. The essential oil is obtained from the distillation of the flowers and leaves of basil.
The essential oil of Tropical Basil has a pleasant, sweet smell with a slight aniseed note. It is rarely used on its own but is often combined with other essential oils. We use it in particular in our Dream of children and Relaxation blends.

100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.
Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
