Working with Essential Oil Constituents

Essential oils are a collection of complex components, all having their own properties and benefits. Chemistry makes it possible to isolate these for closer study or to leverage some of their extraordinary capabilities. Over the past few years, Dr. Pappas has been studying and isolating popular and useful constituents such as beta-caryophyllene so production formulators can create even more targeted preparations for their businesses. In this podcast, he speaks about these to Elizabeth from a road trip in his car!
