An Introduction to Essential Oils

essential oils

Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. The oils capture the plant's scent and flavor, or "essence."

Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.

Essential oils are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing.

Once the aromatic chemicals have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to create a product that's ready for use.

The way the oils are made is important, as essential oils obtained through chemical processes are not considered true essential oils.

How are Essential Oils Made?

According to the characteristics of essential oil components, select the manufacturing method. What are the methods used to extract essential oil from plant materials? There are five ways to make essential oils based on their properties, such as whether they dissolve in water or change when heated.

Steam Distillation 

 The method of manufacturing plant materials by steam boiling is carried out in the following steps:

1. The plant material is put into the distillation column, and the water vapor created below evaporates the plant's aromatic ingredients.

2. Water vapor containing aromatic components concentrates in the condenser.

3. The concentrated water vapor is cooled by cooling water and becomes liquid.

4. The liquid consists of two layers of essential oil and hydrosol.

5. Remove the essential oil and bottle it.

 This is the most common manufacturing method, and most essential oils are produced using this method, but because of exposure to heat and water vapor, it is not suitable for plants that cannot withstand these extraction processes.

 Essential oil made by steam distillation: Ylang-ylang, German, Chamomile, Roman, Chamomile, Happy Sage, Cypress, Sandalwood, Juniper, Magnolia, Geranium, Tea Tree, Neroli, Patchouli, Black Pepper, Frankincense, Vetiver, Peppermint, Myrrh, Vanilla, Eucalyptus, Lavender, Lemongrass, Otto Rose, Rosemary, etc.

Squeezing Method

 Citrus peel basically uses the manufacturing method that press, it is to press manually before, it is to use centrifugal method to separate after mechanical drum pressing now, because do not use heat energy, so balmy composition won't produce change almost, can obtain the most original and natural sweet atmosphere, it is the characteristic of this method. However, the aromatic composition produced by this method changes rapidly.

Essential oil made by squeezing: Sweet Orange, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Lemon, etc.

Volatile Organic Solvent Extraction Method

 The method of dissolving aromatic components by volatile organic solvents is carried out in the following steps:

1. The plant material is placed in the extraction column together with volatile organic solvents (petroleum ether, etc.).

2. At room temperature, the natural waxes and fragrances of plants are dissolved.

3. The plant is removed and the solvent is allowed to evaporate, leaving behind a semisolid coagulant with aromatic and waxy components.

4. The aromatic components are dissolved in alcohol, the waxy components are separated, the alcohol is removed and finally the aromatic components are obtained.

The substance obtained from flowers is called proto-essence (Absolute), and the substance waiting to be obtained from colloids is called fragrance extract (Resinoid) and is often used as a precipitating sweetener for perfumes.

Essential oils produced by extraction with volatile organic solvents: Moroccan Jasmine, Benzoin, Rose, etc.

Fat Absorption Method

 The manufacturing method of using oil to adsorb aroma components is the traditional method before the volatile organic solvent extraction method is adopted. This method arranges flowers and so on in normal temperature solid oil (butter, lard, etc.), divided into cold immersion method to adsorb aroma components (Enfleurage), and warm immersion method to soak flowers and so on with heated oil juice (Maceration). After the adsorption of aromatic components to a saturated oil (balsam), the aromatic components are dissolved in alcohol. Later, the alcohol is removed, resulting in an aromatic ingredient called protoplasm.

 Essential oil made by liposuction: It used to be the most common method for extracting things like Roses and Jasmines, but is now almost never used.

Supercritical Fluid Extraction

 Developed in recent years, using liquefied gas extraction of aromatic components. Apply high pressure to a gas such as carbon dioxide and it becomes a fluid between gas and liquid (supercritical state). When plant material is added, the fluid penetrates or diffuses into the plant to incorporate aromatic ingredients. The essential oils obtained by restoring the fluid pressure and leaving the aromatic components behind when the liquefied gas is vaporized are called extracts. Because it requires expensive equipment, it is not the current manufacturing method.

Constellations And Aromatherapy 

Ancient scholars discovered a systematic law from the activities of the heavenly bodies, thus establishing astrology. Astrology allows people to appreciate how changes in the universe govern nature and everything on earth. Astrology was originally used to predict the weather, the harvest of crops, and even the fate of a country. Soon, astrologers began to believe that the birth of human beings was also affected by the operation of celestial bodies. Astrology has further developed into the science of human behavior.

essential oils

Essential oils and aromatherapy, are the rich gifts of nature and the most essential part of plants. Through these aromas, human beings can obtain the precious energy of nature, so that the body and mind can be balanced.

At first glance, astrology and essential oils may seem to be two distinct aspects. However, in 1652, a great astrologer and physician of herbal medicine, Nicholas Culpeper, combined the medicinal properties of plants with astrology. He put forward a unique point of view in his book : He believed that medicinal herbs have masculine and feminine distinctions, and proper medicinal herbs must be selected in order to exert their curative effect.

For example, marjoram, lavender, and rosemary are masculine herbs; chamomile, eucalyptus, and rose are feminine herbs.

Masculine signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius) are suitable for feminine herbs;
