Essential Oils

Information about essential oils

Welcome to EssentialOils.cc

Essential oils are fragrant liquids extracted from the flowers, leaves, and other parts of plants.  Having the essential oil of a plant is like having a concentrated liquid form of that plant. Essential oils are extremely potent.  Because they are so concentrated they must be handled carefully. Most essential oils are produced through steam distillation.  When an essential oil is produced through a process solvent extraction it is called an absolute.  This process is usually used for very delicate floral oils like jasmine, gardenia, and neroli, but it can be used for any oil.  Absolutes sometimes have a slightly different fragrance than their counterpart essential oil.
