Infusing Basil with olive oil is more an art than science. Hand picked; fresh basil leaves from Azafran's own organic farms are used to infuse the oils, than the dried ones which gives a purer flavor. Precautions are taken to prevent bacteria growth in the olive oil due to the water content in the basil leaves. Over the time, the basil leaves release their fresh flavor into the olive oil creating an invigorating aroma. It is packaged in a dark glass bottle to shield it from light. Basil adds a floral aroma, and a spicy – sweet taste to the olive oil.
