Basil (Ocimum basilicum) essential oil has a fresh, warm aroma that can be calming and refreshing. Basil belongs to the Lamiaceae plant family, which includes about 200 species grown around the world. Our 100% pure and all-natural Vietnamese basil oil has a classic, warm, and camphor-esque aroma. Try it in aromatherapy, perfumes, room sprays, candles, soaps, bath salts, and massage oils. A staple in the food and medicine of Southeast Asia, Basil is perhaps most integrated into the society and culture of Vietnam, where our essential oil is sourced.
