Essential Oils Vs. Fragrance Oils

Fragrance Oil
Fragrance Oil? Essential Oil? We have heard this being used over and over. If one is not familiar, one would think it is one and the same. Do you know that there is a big difference between them?
We would like to educate you on the difference between what a fragrance oil is, and what an essential oil is. 
Read on - you might learn a thing - or two - or more! :) 
Fragrance Oil

ESSENTIAL OILS (EO)

✅  Natural, volatile plant extracts 

✅ 100% all natural substances

✅ Made from distilling or cold - pressing flowers, barks, stems, leaves, peels, roots, seeds, or other parts of the plant 

✅ Steam - distilled pure plant extracts used for scenting, flavoring or healing applications in aromatherapy 

✅ Difficult to reproduce synthetically since they can be made up of 50-500 different naturally occurring chemicals found in the plant and not all of them have been identified. 

✅ Used in aromatherapy - helps ease muscle pain, skin problems and other body afflictions, hair softening, rash and eczema relief, stress and migraine, emotional problems, menstrual issues, skin problems, arthritis and more 

✅ More expensive 

 
 

FRAGRANCE OILS (FO) 

✅  Synthetically made chemical scent compounds - synthetically scented 

  Definitely not all natural

✅ Can be drying and irritating to the skin

✅ Created in a laboratory, non volatile and generally lasts longer than essential oils

✅ 2 types: Synthetic - artificially created from checmical compounds that do not exist in nature.  Natural made in a lab but created by isolating aromatics components from a complex scent

✅ Created with a mix of aroma chemicals and natural ingredients like essential oils, extracts and resins

✅ No health benefits 

✅ More affordable
