A fragrance oil is a mix of various chemical components, some from natural sources such as plants, and some synthetic. They are carefully formulated and/or blended to the exact specifications of a perfumer whose goal is to design a scent. Compared to the natural essential oils, these fragrances oils can be quite a bit less expensive and cover a much wider pallet of scents than the natural essential oils. All of our fragrance oils are deemed safe for skin use, but not directly on the skin as they are concentrated and are made to put into products such as lotions, massage oils, candles, and soaps. These are not recommended for lip balms, flavor oils or natural essential oils should be used for lip products.
