Essential oils, in general, constitute 0.1 to 1% of the dry weight of the plant. They are liquids with poor solubility in water, soluble in alcohols and organic solvents. When they are fresh, at room temperature, they are colorless, since when they oxidize they resinify and take on a dark yellowish color (which is prevented by placing them in topaz-colored glass containers, completely filled and perfectly closed). Most oils are less dense than water (with exceptions such as cinnamon, sassafras and clove essential oils) and have a high refractive index.

Aromatic herbs and oils, including essential oils, have been an integral part of the spiritual practices of many religions and cultures throughout history.

Essential oils are a concentrated type of volatile oils, they generally have the characteristic aroma or flavor of the plant from which they are obtained and are mainly used to make perfumes, flavorings, and to give the desired energy to the ritual, mixing it with other spiritual oils.

The essential oils of different and powerful herbs are one of the largest and most varied ceremonial tools used in esoteric rituals around the world, since powers are hidden in their spiritual properties. Today, some people use essential oils to open the mind, enhance spiritual connections, and invite inspiration. They do this by inhaling an essential oil while meditating or by applying diluted essential oils to the body (i.e. the crown of the head, the base of the skull, or over the heart.
