Essential oils are volatile compounds of plant origin increasingly used by allergic and/or asthmatic subjects to purify indoor air. The active compounds of essential oils belong to terpenes, the most widespread biogenic volatile organic compounds (VOC). Although there is substantial literature showing associations between exposure to chemical VOCs and asthmatic symptoms and impaired respiratory function, the impact of essential oils in patients with asthma has never been studied.

Oils which evaporate readily. The volatile oils occur in aromatic plants, to which they give odor and other characteristics. Most volatile oils consist of a mixture of two or more TERPENES or of a mixture of an eleoptene (the more volatile constituent of a volatile oil) with a stearopten (the more solid constituent). The synonym essential oils refers to the essence of a plant, as its perfume or scent, and not to its indispensability.
