Volatile Oils are oils having the flavor or aroma of the plant or nut from which it comes. Volatile Oils are used in cooking to flavor dishes. They are often released with a small amount of heat, as in Sweating ingredients. 

Volatile Oils are typically rapidly evaporating and are often also essential oils.
