Essential oils are distilled typically by steam or water from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, and other parts of a given plant botanical. For citrus fruits, the essential oil is usually pressed from the peels (rinds) of the fruit.
Essential oils contain the true aromatic essence of the plants that they are derived from and offer many other therapeutic benefits that span beyond their pleasant aromas.
Fragrance Oils are generally synthetic however many include natural compounds. Fragrance oils are available in hundreds of different scents allowing us to create products that cannot be achieved strictly by using essential oils or other natural aromatics.
