Essential oils derived from plants or their secondary metabolism, which are formed by a group of cells or fibers placed in stems and leaves of plants. Essential oils are isolated with plant material by via several methods, of which the most widely used method of distillation. These oils represent a mixture of terpenoids as the main component, and specific monoperteni sekviperteni although not excluded the presence of diterpenes. Essential oils may be characterized based on the presence of their main components. The discovery and exploration of essential oils constitute the subject of much research for many scientists and researchers.
