Beginners to essential oils often ask me what the difference is between the oils. Essential oils Vs fragrance oils, is one better than the other? I’d say it’s not that either is better than the other, it’s more they serve different purposes. One being synthetically man made, the other being produced from plant extracts, so it really depends on the results you’re looking for.
Essential Oils Vs Fragrance oils
The big difference between the two is Nature. If you’re just looking for your perfect fragrance to enjoy, fragrance oils are a great choice. A popular choice for candle and soap makers because of the vast range of aromas and the lower cost compared to essential oils .
Choose essential oils if you want to explore the therapeutic benefits of Mother Nature. Learning about essential oils and using them as natural remedies for common family ailments is pretty awesome. Essential oil blends can also replace household cleaners and personal grooming products. You really can learn to live a naturally fragrant life and ditch the aerosol chemical laden nasties. 🙂
