Description

Magnificent Basil, an aromatic leafy herb is distributed throughout Nepal at an elevation up to 1660m, and extracted oil is highly fragrant from steam distilled from the aerial part of the basil plant grown in the tropical and subtropical zone. This essential oil is sweet but savory, and just like the smell, it is peppery yet over so slightly minty notes.
