Essential Oils

Essential oils are liquids which are extracted from plant parts such as leaves, flowerings, shrub, branches or bark that carry distinct odors or flavors of the plant from which it was extracted. Extraction is mostly done through steam distillation but can also include CO2 extraction or cold pressing. Essential Oils are natural, strong scented compounds of terpenes and esters that are quickly evaporating and thus don’t necessarily show the typical characteristics of an oil. Essential oils are primarily used in flavoring, perfumery and toiletries however there are applications in the dietary supplement and food industries as well.
