The reregistration case Flower and Vegetable Oils is composed of a group of compounds that are natural components of plants. These oils are active ingredients in pesticide products registered for use as animal repellants, feeding depressants, insecticides and miticides. Some of the essential oils also are included as active ingredients in antimicrobial pesticide products (disinfectants, sanitizers, bacteriostats, microbiocides and fungicides). However, since the essential oils have no independent pesticidal activity in antimicrobial products, these uses are not eligible for reregistration. Many of the flower and vegetable oils have other, more significant, non-pesticidal uses as food additives, flavorings, and components of cosmetics, soaps, perfumes, plastics, resins, and other products.
