It is worth emphasizing that the statement is highly selective , as an island component minortitaria plant (on average by 0.01 % to 2 %). The essences contained in plants are the source of essential oils as a product, but not totally overlapping them from chemical point of view , given that essential oils contain only the volatile molecules under the conditions of extraction and hydrophobic ( the molecules are volatile and hydrophilic lost in aromatic waters ) . The essences are produced by plants for many reasons, and in some cases maybe even as scrap.
The strongest hypothesis want their essences allelopathy play function , antibiotic , attraction of pollinators , brokers energy reactions .
