Other Details

Essential oils are steam volatile oils, distilled from plant materials and represent the typical flavor and aroma (the essence) of a particular plant and everlasting essential oil is very valuable in the perfume and flavoring industries . Liquorice flavour is found in a wide variety of candies or sweets. In most of these candies, the taste is reinforced by aniseed oil so the actual content of liquorice is very low. Liquorice confections are primarily purchased by consumers in the European Union.
