A: An Essential Oil is a concentrated, hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants.Essential Oils are also known as volatile or ethereal oils, as they are extracted from leaves, buds, bark, trees, flowers and other parts of plants.

Essential Oils can be used for anything ranging from aromatherapy, homemade arts and crafts (such as candles), and soaps.
