Essential oils are a mixture of volatile and natural substances, identified and characterized by the strong odor, produced by aromatic plants as secondary metabolites. Their metabolites have a wide range of applications and have been commercially important to the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic industries. One of the plants essential oil Geraniol, a monoterpene alcohol has the verity of pharmacological activities are reported in preclinical studies. Generally, monoterpenes are non nutritive… Expand
