Meaning of Oil
An oil is any neutral, nonpolar chemical substance that is a viscous liquid at ambient temperatures and is both hydrophobic (immiscible with water, literally "water fearing") and lipophilic (miscible with other oils, literally "fat loving") - See link


Oil in Spanish is Aceite
La palabra aceite (del árabe azzáyt, el jugo de la aceituna, y éste del arameo zaytā) es un término genérico para designar numerosos líquidos grasos de orígenes diversos que no se disuelven en el agua y que tienen menor densidad que ésta. - See link
