The EssOilDB (the ESSential OIL DataBase) is a continually updated knowledge resource for plant volatile emissions, containing experimental records of essential oil composition data, from published reports. EssOilDB also contains information on related geo-morphological factors at the time of collection and extraction in order to appreciate volatile profile patterns from a global perspective. EssOilDB provides an opportunity for context based scientific research, through a multitude of queries on volatile profiles of native, invasive, normal or stressed plants, across taxonomic clades, geographical locations and several other biotic and abiotic influences.

EssOilDB presently contains 123041 essential oil records spanning a century of published reports on volatile profiles, with data from 92 plant taxonomic families, spread across diverse geographical locations all over the globe.
