essential oil

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

Highly concentrated aromatic oil used in aromatherapy. The forty different oils designed to treat specific ailments are derived from roots, bark, leaves, wood, and sap of plants, trees, and herbs. The rinds of citrus fruits also provide fragrant essential oils. Because of their highly concentrated aromas, they are usually diluted in "carrier" oils or alcoholic solutions.
