We use the best quality Essential & Fragrance Oils in our Bath Products. What's the difference between an Essential Oil and a Fragrance Oil?
Essential Oils are pressed/extracted from plants with processes that are not supposed to alter the natural structures of the oils.
Most Essential Oils are created via the Extraction method - from plants through steam distillation. Plants are suspended over boiling water and the steam pulls the oils out of the plant. The steam rises and is captured. When the steam cools, it condenses back into the water. As water & oils do not mix, the two separate and the essential oil is collected.
Expression Method - this is the most direct method of producing essential oils. Pressed from the plants flesh, seeds & skins. Used mainly for citrus peels, because the oil in the peel is easily pressed out.
Fragrance Oils are synthetic. They have a scent that tends to last longer than an Essential Oil and can be stronger scented.
Fragrance Oils are usually a combination of Essential Oils, synthetic aroma chemicals and aromatic resins. There are over 350o materials (aroma chemicals, essential oils and essential oil components) that are approved for use in fragrance oils.
We only use skin safe Fragrance Oils in our products
