As propriedades dos óleos essenciais são amplamente conhecidas há vários milénios, no entanto, o interesse da sua utilização como biopesticidas começou a ter maior expressão somente nas últimas décadas.
Num mercado dominado pelos fitofármacos de síntese, os entraves legais na regulamentação destes compostos significaram a desistência da sua comercialização por muitas entidades. Esforços governamentais para o alívio destas restrições, associados a uma maior sensibilização da sociedade para a segurança alimentar e proteção ambiental, podem trazer uma oportunidade ótima para a inclusão e adoção de novas substâncias de combate às pragas das culturas agrícolas.
