Essential oils are typically distilled by water or steam from the roots, bark, flowers, stems and leaves of plants. Botanical oils are also obtained from plants but unlike essential oils, they are cold pressed or extracted by heat. Botanical oils are created from the fatty parts of plants including vegetables, nuts, and seeds in addition to roots, bark, flowers and stems like essential oils. This is what makes botanical oils a good source of vitamins, fatty acids, and minerals. Botanical oils are lower in concentration largely due to the fatty ingredients extracted from plants.
