|Essential Oils serve the needs of plants before they serve us. What they do for us they have already practiced on plants. Thus, essential oils come to us as experienced helpers and healers. Therefore, it is appropriate to learn a little about how oils function in plants to better understand how they function in us|
An essential oil is the volatile lipid (oil) soluble portion of the fluids of a plant containing odiferous compounds produced by steam distillation of vegetable plant matter. Plant matter canf be any part of a botanical species including steams, brances, fruits, flowers , seeds , roots, bark, needles, leaves, etc. During the distillation process, the vapors are condensed, collected, and separated from the condensation water. The residual water, containing traces of oil constituents, is called a "floral water" or "hydrosal" and has therapeutic applications of its own.
Essential oils are mixtures of hundreds of compounds. For example, it has been found that orange oil ( Citrus sinensis) contains 34 alcohols, 30 esters, 20 aldehydes, 14 ketones, 10 carboxylic acids, and 36 varieties of terpenes, including mono- , sesqui- , di- and tetraterpenes. And this is not a complete analysis. In fact, no essential oil has ever been completely analyzed to reveal its every constituent.
