The colloidal solution in which both the dispersed phase and dispersion medium are liquid in nature are called emulsions.

There are two types of emulsions-

(i) oil in water (O/W) -Oil is dispersed phase and water is dispersion medium (milk)             

(ii) water in oil (W/O)- Water is the dispersed phase and oil is dispersion medium (cold  cream, butter etc.)
