An essential oil is a concentrated, hydrophobic liquid, containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils or aetherolea, or simply as the “oil of” the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant.
Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation. Other processes include expression, or solvent extraction. They are used in perfumes, soaps, cosmetics and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for scenting incense and household cleaning products.
Various essential oils have been used medicinally at different periods in history. As the use of essential oils has declined in mainstream evidence-based medicine, one must consult the older textbooks for much information on their use. Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades with the popularity of aromatherapy, a branch of alternative medicine which claims that the specific aromas carried by essential oils have curative effects. Oils are volatilized or diluted in a carrier oil and used in massage, diffused in the air by a nebulizer or by heating over a candle flame, or burned as incense, for example.
Because of their concentrated nature, essential oils generally should not be applied directly to the skin in their undiluted or “neat” form. Some can cause severe irritation, provoke an allergic reaction and over time prove hepatotoxic. Common carrier oils include coconut, olive, almond, hazelnut and grapeseed. Only neutral oils should be used. Some essential oils, including many of the citrus peel oils, are photosensitizers, increasing the skin’s vulnerability to sunlight.
Many professionals use essential oils as part of their practice, such as: Naturopaths, Aromatherapists, Massage Therapists, Mid-Wifery and Chiropractors. The general public also uses them for various purposes from soapmaking to perfumery.
