Rendering first aid with essential oils

Rendering first aid with essential oils

Essential oil is a fragrant mixture of liquid volatile substances isolated from plant materials (by distillation, extraction, pressing).

Most essential oils are highly soluble in gasoline, ether, lipids and fatty oils, waxes and other lipophilic substances and are very poorly soluble in water. The solubility of essential oils in alcohol strongly depends on its strength (it decreases noticeably in the presence of water).
