Oscillation is “to and fro” motion, that is, the direction of motion is reversed periodically.

Harmonic motion is that motion in which the particle oscillates about an equilibrium position due to a restoring force/torque. It is simple harmonic if this restoring force/torque is directly proportional to displacement of particle from equilibrium position. Example for harmonic motion is simple pendulum and example for simple harmonic motion is mass-spring system.
