Many factors affect the constituents of essential oils. Intra-specific variation can occur within plants and trees as a result of differing soil conditions, altitude, climatic conditions and other environmental factors. In some cases, different chemotypes may occur as a result of the above factors. Distillation parameters such as the time of day and stage of growth when the plant is picked, what part(s) of the plant are distilled, the length of distillation, method of distillation, whether the plant is distilled immediately or whether it is dried first, and storage conditions if dried plant parts are used, will all affect the constituents of essential oils and hence their quality and medicinal effects.
