  • Abstract

    Essential oils (EO) have been used as an adjuvant modality of treatment in the management of several orofacial diseases. They are primarily herbal extracts composed of complex organic hydrocarbons. The EO are extracted through a strenuous process of filtration and distillation from the naturally available botanical sources. They exhibit various therapeutic properties including antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. They also possess anxiolytic and antipsychotic properties. EO are relatively free of harmful side effects and allergic reactions. This review describes the potential applications of various EO in the management of periodontal and other oral diseases.
