Fragrance Oil's

What is fragrance oil?

Fragrance oil is often mistaken for essential oil, but they are not the same. While a fragrance oil may contain some essential oil, the opposite is never true: essential oil will never contain any fragrance oil.


Essential oil is a pure extract from a single, natural fragrance source, such as sandalwood, by a process of distillation.


Fragrance oil, on the other hand, is a combination containing either one or more essential oils, an infused oil, which is a vegetable oil combined with an aromatic plant by mixing and heating, or both. 


Humans have used fragrance oils for thousands of years to produce pleasant odors in their environments. Fragrance oils are used for perfume and also for relaxation and therapeutic bathing. Fragrance oils are also used in other compositions applied directly to the skin. Examples include lotions, soaps and massage oils. However, some fragrance oils are irritating to the skin or even deadly when ingested.


Fragrance oil is also used in substances that should not be applied to the skin, such as incense. Many fragrance oils, such as spice, conifer and citrus oils can be irritating to the skin when applied in undiluted form. Fragrance oils should never be applied in the eyes or ears. Additionally, pregnant women should avoid sage and fennel, which contain active ingredients that mimic hormonal processes. All fragrance oils should be kept out of the reach of children. If a child swallows a fragrance oil, give the child milk, cream or any other soluble liquid to dilute the oil and then seek emergency medical attention from the local poison control center. 


People who wear contact lenses or who have high cholesterol or epilepsy should use fragrance oils with care. It is not advisable to mix blends of fragrance oils, although mixing single oils is fine.

If stored properly, fragrance oils should retain their potency for years. While they need not necessarily be stored in amber bottles, they should be stored away from direct sunlight in cool or cold conditions, but not allowed to freeze. Some oils change color or aroma when stored for extended periods. This is natural and not a sign that the oil has gone bad.


Fragrance oils are strongest when used in conjunction with a heat source. Common heat sources include electric potpourri pots, oil lamps and electric diffusers and electric fragrance lamps. Fragrance oils are used in the home as room deodorizers. The lamps disperse scents throughout the home. The oils make clothes smell clean during washing and fresh after drying. Fragrance oils are used to make incense, soap, candles, and many other products. They help eliminate odors from pets, smoking and cooking.
