Abstract :

There is urgent need for perfume production and from local raw materials in order to supplement the existing ones. I recommend more research to be carried out on extraction of essential oil and its formulation from vast variety of oil bearing plants in our ecosystem. Further work should be carried out to analyse the Geraniol and Ginger essential oil as this could not be done due to time constraint. Characterization of Geraniol and Ginger essential oil components should be made in order to determine which is responsible for the characteristics of Pungent and Aromatic odor. Furthermore, large scale extraction of oil from Geraniol and Ginger through enzymatic process should be explored, feasibility studies on the economic viability of the process should be conducted.
Keywords: Essential oil, Perfumery, Fractional distillation, Vacuum distillation.

24. Jacobsen (A. 157, 232) first gathered in 1870 more detailed data about the alcohol, which he named geraniol ; he established its [empirical] formula C10H18O, without providing further data about its chemical structure.)
