Essential Oils vs. Fragrance Oils

How are essential oils different from fragrance oil?

Essential oils are derived from plants or herbs and have a therapeutic effect on the mind, body and spirit. Fragrance oils, however, are synthetic ingredients that are exclusively used for scent.

Essential oils are highly concentrated aromatic extracts which are distilled from a variety of aromatic plant material including grasses, leaves, flowers, needles & twigs, peel of fruit, wood and roots.

Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological, psychological and spiritual realm of the individual's response to aromatic extracts as well as to observe and enhance the individual's innate healing process
