RESEARCH ON ESSENTIAL OILS

Plants generate a considerable number of antioxidants, preservatives, and synthetic colours. The properties of plants are many and varied: tonics, astringents, anti-inflammatory, antiseptics, anti-scarring, cleansers, moisturisers, relaxants, emulsifiers, decongestant, refreshing, etc. Research on essential oils is the base of this industry, and many laboratories invest their technology to enhance the properties of essential oils, and their application in our life.
