Essential oils are extracts from plants. These plants may be affected by different climatic conditions, nutrient content of the soil, and water availability. As a result, every batch of authentic essential oil – the true 'essence of the plant' — will have a slightly different chemical profile and, therefore, a slightly different aroma. The properties are the same.
