*The essence of an aromatic plant is developed in its tissues through photosynthesis. Only fruits of the genus Citrus have essences, which can be obtained by cold pressing of their peel. An essential oil is significantly different from an essence, because it is the result of the transformation of the essence by steam distillation, excluding in particular the heavier molecules of the original essence.
