What is an essential oil?
Essential oil is the aromatic volatile liquid within the plant bodies, having intelligence to change their natural chemical compositions, in order to help the plants to adapt/survive the ever-changing internal/external environment. Essential oil is extracted from different plants parts: for example leaves (eucalyptus), flowers (lavender), bark (cinnamon), stems (cedarwood), citrus fruit peel (lemon), root (ginger), or seeds and fruit. To certain extent, we do expose ourselves to essential oils in our daily lives without really knowing it, for example, our eyes might get irritated and stinging when we peel citruses, or we see a thin layer of oil on top of a cup of lemon tea, it is the citrus essential oil.

Essential Oil Extraction
The most common methods are steam distillation (e.g. eucalyptus, lavender), cold pressing (e.g. citruses such as lemon and orange) and solvent extraction (e.g. jasmine).
