Essential Oils 2001 - 2004 contains a cumulative record of information and data on the composition and origin of commercially important essential oils. Original review columns written by Brian Lawrence for Perfumer & Flavorist magazine have been compiled into one necessary reference book, complete with monographs on 114 essential oils.
This reference work is a review of the published literature from 2001 2004. For the more commonly encountered and studied oils such as thyme, coriander seed and leaf, cinnamon, palmarosa, laurel leaf, clary sage, Spanish marjoram, patchouli, lemongrass, fennel, juniper berry and so on, data published before 1995 has been previously published. For the less commonly encountered oils such as manuka, caboré, parsnip, tejpat, curry leaf, cangerana, Port Orford cedarwood, myrrh, kanuka and so on, the data contined in this volume is a summary of most of the published literature on these oils. Also contained in the volume is the compositional data on oils and/or extracts of unique flavor and fragrance raw materials such as roasted chicory, guarana, tolu balsam, benzoin, opoponax and so on.
As with previous volumes, Volume 7 was compiled as a reference source of component information on oils that are used to compound flavors and fragrances for use in the wide range of consumer products and oils used in aromatherapy. It should also act as a reference source for scientists within industry, academia and government agencies on the composition of essential oils and extracts.
