Most of the plants, especially the aromatic and medicinal ones have essential oils. These compounds have been widely studied not only to know the chemical composition but also their biological activities. (EOs) have for a long time been recognized to possess several different biological activities.

With this special issue, we want to contribute to the knowledge of these secondary plant metabolites and their activities that will be useful for science, pharmaceutical industry and the population.
