Different essential oils have varying therapeutic properties according to their molecular content.

All chemical compounds have widely varying properties and therefore it is virtually impossible to generalise
about the therapeutic properties based only on the properties of the known chemical constituents, as the whole
essential oil is more active than its principal constituents.

It is also possible that minor or trace constituents may contribute to the therapeutic properties more than the
major constituents.

It can therefore be concluded that the combination andconcentration of its chemical constituents reflect an
essential oil’s individual and collective properties.
