Essential oils

Posted by Janes_kid on March 03, 2003

"essential oils" is a common phrase among people who deal in aromas. Definitions often say describe something, perhaps an oil, with an aroma that is the product of "distillation".

Does anyone know how the word "essential" got into smell business?
