The Sweet Basil Plant, famously called “king of herbs/plant” and “royal herb/plant”, produces the ever famous Organic Basil Sweet Essential Oil from its green leaves.
Revered for it stimulating and invigorating smell, this organic essential oil is believed to originate in ancient India where cultivation started at least 5,000 years ago. There was no keeping this oil from the rest of the world, and Basil Sweet Essential Oil was soon a staple across Europe and South East Asia.
Simply the best! At Nature's Oil we recognize that basil essential oil is only as good as the plant it's distilled from. With the U.S leading the world in banning toxic pesticides, we recognize the need to source certified organics. By selling USDA certified organic essential oils, we ensure the farming, distilling, brokering and filling process all follow the same exhausting standards that the USDA has instituted for the organic program regardless of the plants country of origin. This ensures every part of the supply chain including the farmers are regularly audited and held to the same unwavering standards that we hold ourselves to. The process is not cheap, it's not easy, but it does make us stand out from nearly every other basil essential oil on the market.
