Essential oil contains the soul/essence of the plant’s fragrance. The term “essential” used here does not mean indispensable/necessary or usable/utilizable by the human body skin, as with the terms essential amino acid or essential fatty acid, which are so called because they are nutritionally necessary by a given living organism.
