Published on Jun 16, 2022

Essential oil refers to a liquid extract that is generally obtained from various plants utilized for relieving headaches and promoting relaxation. It is prepared by pressing or steaming various parts of the plant, such as fruits, barks, leaves or flowers, in order to obtain compounds that produce fragrance. It contains a higher level of active ingredients that attribute a strong smell, thereby making it an ideal component of aromatherapy. It is widely available in India in multiple variants that differ on the basis of scents and quality, generally ranging from pure to diluted essential oils.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
