pure-organic-lavender-essential-oilAn essential oil is a concentrated, hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile, 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 do not as a group need to have any specific chemical properties in common, beyond conveying characteristic fragrances.

Essential oils are liquids that have been distilled from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots or other parts of a plant. Though they're referred to as oils, they're actually not oily at all rather, they're usually clear, though some do have a slight amber or yellow color. 
 

Essential Oil Properties

 
Aromatherapy treatments use these oils to relieve a number of common ailments, and because the oils are highly concentrated, a little bit goes a long way. By selecting essential oils that have common properties, it is easier to achieve a desired effect. For example, to stop perspiration, combine oils that have antisudorific properties: clary sage, cypress and sage.
