Basil essential oil comes from the steam distillation of its sexes. It has a light yellow color and a fresh, sweet and slightly spicy smell. Its most important aromatic compounds are estragole, linoleum, camphor and tannins, while its composition also contains a large percentage of methyl-habicol ether (about 80%), a substance which gives the essential oil the virtues attributed to it.
