They are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds , bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose , the smell of freshly cut mint or walked by a field of lavender then you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils.
