Basil oil is an essential oil which is steam distilled from the leaves and flowering tops of the basil plant, also known by the botanical name Ocimum basilicum. Many consumers use basil oil in aromatherapy for its therapeutic properties and describe this essential oil has having a soothing and relaxing aroma. Pure essential oils such as basil oil are highly concentrated and should be handled with care.
Uh, basil oil does smell like licorice. It is THE highly concentrated "ESSENCE" of the plant material. Therefore, basil oil is in the same vein of smells as anise, licorice, fennel and caraway.
