Oils are liquids produced by pressing of grains, pulses or leaves of various varieties. Oils have high carbon and hydrogen content due to which they are highly flammable. Oils are used for cosmetics, cooking food, fuel, lubrication, painting, medical purposes and many other manufacturing purposes. Some specially prepared / produced oils are also used in religious ceremonies and rituals or as purifying agents across many cultures.
