Many people are attached to the bold and beautiful, particularly when it comes to decorating their workplace and home. We choose to invest in pieces that stand out. One of the most powerful part that is often overlooked are fragrances, now deemed as constraints in various households. The beautiful aromas come mostly from aroma and essential oils, both can help create peaceful and relaxing environments. The sad part is that for most people it’s still a conundrum to differentiate between aroma oils and essential oils. People often confuse the two types, but it very important to understand the difference between the two. So here are some properties that will help differentiate between the two types of oils.
The first and foremost difference between the fragrance and essential oils is that essential oils are extracted from plants, fruits and flowers whereas the aroma oils are created in labs. Essential oils are more expensive and have a small shelf life than the aroma oils. Essential oils are considered to have more therapeutic properties. On the other hand synthetic/fragrance oils are less expensive and the aroma last for a longer period. The natural oils can be more potent than synthetic oils, so you may need to use a very small amount to get the desired effect.
Natural oils are generally considered to be safer and more gentle in nature for skin than the synthetic options. Natural oils also tend to be more expensive, as they are typically cold pressed from plant materials, flowers etc. Whereas the synthetic oils being prepared in labs may have chemical properties which might not be good for one’s health.
