Citral

Citral is the principal constituent of lemongrass oil and Backhousia citriodora oil. It is usually isolated from citral-containing oils by chemical means. It may be prepared synthetically. The product of commerce is a mixture of two geometric isomers, a- and ß-citrals. Citral is a pale yellow liquid having a strong lemon like odour. Here are some general specifications of Citral.

Geraniol (Ex- Palmarosa Oil )

Geraniol is a monoterpenoid and an alcohol. It is the primary part of rose and palmarosa oils. It also occurs in small quantities in geranium, lemon, citronella, and many other essential oils. Geraniol is one of the most widely used aromatic isolates, indispensable in compounding of rose scents In fact, it forms part of almost any perfume compound. Thus Geraniol serves extensively in the perfumes, cosmetics, soap and flavour industries. It is used in flavors such as peach, raspberry, grapefruit, red apple, plum, lime, orange, lemon, watermelon, pineapple and blueberry. An alternate application has been found in the use of insect repellants or deterrents. Though it may repel mosquitoes, flies, lice, cockroaches, ants, and ticks. Here are some general specifications of Geraniol.

Linalool (Perfumery Grade)
Linalool is one of the most frequently used fragrance and perfumery substance distilled from the oils of lemongrass, rosewood, bergamot, other plants and trees and is produced in large quantity. It is a naturally-occurring terpene alcohol chemical with many commercial applications as a scent in domestic products such as soaps, detergents, shampoo, and lotion and is also used as a chemical intermediate. One common downstream product of linalool is Vitamin E. These properties extend the use of linalool to a wide range of floral and nonfloral fragrances. Here are some general specifications of Linalool.

Rhodinol

Rhodinol comes in nature as a typical component of Rose and Geranium oils and confounded with isomers the alcohol Citronellol. Still in the 40's of this century one assumed that Rhodinol would be isomer from Geraniol, or even identical to this. It is combustible liquid mixture of terpene alcohols with rose scent; soluble in mineral oil and alcohol; and especially used in perfumes and flavors. Here are some general specifications of Rhodinol.
