Adam Michael has this to say “Basil absolute is bursting with such a rich and fulsome aroma. Mediterranean herbaceous, alive, green, fresh and delicious with an olive tang. Green in colour, of a pourable viscosity and produced from basil leaves via solvent extraction. This has to be the perfect material for building herbal bouquets, culinary notes, Mediterranean themes, pairs especially well with coriander CO2, lime distilled and chilli seed (red bell fields), imparts distinctive freshness to a fragrance and is a great study material.
The plant grows wild all over the Mediterranean, especially on sunny hillsides, and there are a number of varieties, varying in height, colour of leaves, etc. The leaves may be a very dark green, or may be lighter and hairy, narrow or straight. The scent also varies, in some cases resembling fennel or tarragon, but the variety used in aromatherapy has pale pink flowers, hairy oval leaves and its own characteristic scent which is a little like that of thyme, but hotter and more spicy. Although the plant has naturalised in the Mediterranean and many other parts of Europe, it is a native of Asia, and has a long history of use in Indian traditional medicine.”
