Basil (85% methyl chavicol) Ocimum basilicum L. (1110)

Basil has a warm, sweet, spicy rich aroma. Uplifting and refreshing, it is excellent for reviving a tired mind. It is a wonderful digestive, and a powerful clearing antiseptic. An ideal support in the fight against germs. This methyl chavicol chemotype has an especially spicy aroma with a distinct aniseed/licorice note.
