VOCs in essential oils

I just learned about this today in an herbalist's comment in a chat.

Has anyone else here come across this information before?

    I have not heard of that before. I wonder if this test was done using therapeutic grade essential oils. I know there are some low quality EOs out there that use chemical extraction which may be what was tested. But these days so many products off-gas and have VOCs I wonder with limited research dollars why EOs were targeted.

    @LaurieLovesLearning I have never heard of that! I wonder the same thing that @annbeck62 mentioned.
