Abstract

Essential oils (EOs) from various plant sources have been used for their pharmaceutical potential since ancient times. They are extracted by steam or water distillation. EOs mainly consist of terpenes, including monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes as well as phenolic compounds. Their single bioactive constituents inhibit several pathogens and are responsible for most of the antimicrobial activities. EOs have recently gained significant attention for their potential as natural antimicrobial agents. The current review presents various pharmacological activities (antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anticancer) of Eos, applicable in the cosmetic and food industries as well as healthcare sector. The chemical composition and biological activities of clove and coriander oil are also discussed further. Eugenol is the main bioactive component of clove oil, followed by β-caryophyllene and eugenyl acetate. Coriander oil mainly consists of linalool, is edible and non-toxic, prevents spoilage of food, and exhibits numerous biological activities. Further information is provided on their single bioactive constituents and applications. Various EOs are potential candidates for natural drugs; however, further investigation is required for their development and efficient use in agriculture, pharmaceutical, and food industries.

Key Words
