What is Essential Oil?
Essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile (easily evaporated at normal temperatures) chemical compounds from plants. Essential oil is "essential" in the sense that it contains the "essence of" the plant's fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived.
Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression, solvent extraction, absolute oil extraction, resin tapping, wax embedding, and cold pressing. The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Aroma Oils is gaining momentum. It is used for a variety of applications, including relaxation and mood enhancement.
These Essential Oils are used in Oil Diffusers, Oil Burners, Air Fresheners, Perfumes, Soaps, and other Perfumery products, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.
