Is olive oil an essential oil?

No, olive oil isn't an essential oil for one main reason. Essential oils are the essence of fragrant herbs or plants. To create an essential oil, steam is pumped into a chamber containing the plant, and the minute amounts of essential oils (the main fragrance and medicinal compounds) are captured by the steam. Then the steam flows into a condensing chamber, and the oil and water is condensed into liquid and then separated. It takes a lot of plant material to create even one ounce of pure essential oil. Olive oil is made by pressing the olives to extract their flavor and oil (not as concentrated as essential oil).

Its very difficult to know if your essential oil is true or not. Basically there are three ways to know: 1. Buy from a local supplier that takes the essential oil business seriously and has genuine concern to their customers. They will even educate you about essential oils. It would even be better if you can buy from the essential oil producers themselves. 2. Smell the essential oil. Essential Oils supposedly smells like the raw material where they come from.
