ESSENTIAL OIL VS. FRAGRANCE OIL – WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Asking about the difference between pure essential oils and fragrance oils is a little like asking what the difference is between natural and synthetic products. Both may have their uses and drawbacks. Synthetic products can be cheaper to produce and more convenient (for example polyester fabric) but may have drawbacks such as added chemicals and environmental hazard. Natural products might be better quality (for example wool) but harder to obtain in large quantities and not as palatable to the consumer.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Aromatherapy essential oils are naturally occurring substances found in different parts of plants – the blossom, fruit, leaf, stem, bark, wood or resin. Through a complicated and often expensive process of steam distillation or solvent extraction, both hydrosol and essential oils are produced. Each essential oil is comprised of between 50 to 500 different naturally occurring chemicals, which can have both positive and negative effects. For example, cinnamon essential oil is known for its antiseptic and astringent properties yet it is highly irritating to the skin and caution must be taken.
