Essentials Oils

Pure Essential Oils

As early as 4500 BC, aromatic oils were used in cosmetics and ointments by the ancient Egyptians. A variety of herbal preparations, including aniseed, cedar, onion, myrrh, and grapes, were once combined to make perfumes or medicines. However, between 3000 and 2000 BC, the use of aromatic oils was first documented in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine. Particularly, more than 700 ingredients, including cinnamon, ginger, myrrh, and sandalwood, were mentioned as having properties in the written histories of China and India. Furthermore, it is documented in Greek history that various oils such as thyme, saffron, marjoram, cumin, and peppermint were used for the first time between 500 and 400 BC.

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are aromatic, volatile liquids extracted from plant material using steam distillation and named after the plant from which they are derived. These can be classified as products or mixtures of fragrant substances, or as fragrant and odorless substances. 

These fragrant substances are chemically pure and volatile under normal conditions. The oils differ greatly, sometimes due to genetic factors, but also due to climate, rainfall, or geographical origin. 

They are primarily made up of lipophilic and highly volatile secondary plant metabolites, primarily mono- and sesquiterpenes, but other compounds such as allyl and, more commonly, phenols may also be present. 

Coumarins, anthraquinones, and alkaloids, which are frequently distillable, are among the other substances discovered in volatile oils. In contrast, some diterpenes, fats, and other nonvolatile compounds can be extracted from organic essential oils using methods other than distillation.
