Essential oils are obtained from the roots, stems, fruits, seeds, wood, barks, leaves and flowers of a single plant species using expression, steam distillation and carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction. They have characteristic fragrances and are extensively utilized in manufacturing perfumes, soaps, shampoos and cleaning gels. They also have numerous therapeutic properties, due to which essential oils are used in medications for aromatherapy or as carriers for drug delivery applications. Moreover, they are used to enhance the sensory properties of agricultural items like animal feeds and food commodities.
Essential oils are used in different forms, such as expectorants, decongestants, carminative and antibacterial agents, to treat bronchitis, cough and other respiratory tracts. A significant rise in the number of individuals diagnosed with respiratory, dermatological and dental disorders worldwide is among the leading factors contributing to the market growth. Besides this, essential oils are also gaining traction as natural additives and flavoring agents in the conservation and preservation of food products, such as candies, confections, meat, pickles and soft drinks. Other applications of these oils include the synthesis of chemical preservatives, repellents and edible film coatings, and as odorants in detergents and paints. Furthermore, the escalating demand for extended shelf-life and minimal addition of preservatives is resulting in the introduction of active packaging systems to protect food products from microbial contamination. This is anticipated to increase the adoption of essential oils for promoting the safety and quality of seafood, dairy products, cereal-based items and minimally processed fruit and vegetables.
