What is the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils?
We are often asked the difference between fragrance and essential oils. Our fragrance oils are handmade. They are made of proprietary blends of essential oils and other ingredients combined with a carrier oil such as fractionated coconut or sweet almond oil. (Fractionated coconut is most often used due to its lack of individual scent and it's wonderful skin soothing properties). Essential oils are pure, undiluted plant essences that are obtained through several methods, such as steam distillation, solvent extraction, etc. There are no additional ingredients in pure essential oils other than the single plant oil alone.
Fragrance oils are thicker than essential oils, because they are blended with a carrier oil. Also, fragrance oils will not have the same therapeutic value as pure essential oils. Fragrance oils can be used in diffusers, but add them to water first. Do not burn them full strength.
Can I use your fragrance oils in my Lampe Berger catalytic lamp?
Our fragrance oils are of the highest quality available, but they cannot be used in Lampe Berger or other catalytic lamps. Those types of burners require pure, undiluted essential oils in an alcohol blend. We can, however, make any of our scents into Catalytic Effusion Oil for this type of lamp. Please see that section of our store for the fragrances we have available. We also offer a line of Reed Diffuser Oils made from our fragrances.
