Strong scent

Quite different to the basil I am used to. I find that it is quite strong and herbal - a little goes a long way!

Surprising scent

A point to note when selecting your basil essential oil is that this product is slightly aniseed in scent, more similar to fresh Thai basil. I don't know how this compares to the sweet basil that is also available. I still highly enjoy this oil and have used it in multiple products.
