Essential Oils & Perfume (Fragrance) Oils

People may confuse essential oils and fragrances due to their similarities.  They are not alike.

Essential oils are natural chemicals extracted from the leaves, flowers, stems, roots or bark of plants.  Fragrance oils (also called perfume oils) are usually synthetic; chemists analyze the plants’ chemical composition to reproduce a naturally occurring aroma or they develop a new one.  Perfume oils have no therapeutic benefits, they are enjoyed for their aroma.

Essential oils can be worn as a fragrance (when properly diluted with a carrier oil), but more importantly, they are used in aromatherapy for their therapeutic properties.
