Q: What is the difference between essential oil and fragrance?
A: Essential Oils are all natural oils which are derived directly from nature. The word fragrance can mean many things. Natural Fragrance Oils are made of a proprietary blend of essential oils and some contain resins and natural aromatic ingredients. Though these are man-made blends they are 100% natural.

Because not all fragrances are found in nature some of our products contain fragrance oils which are partially synthetic, but still contain essential oils. We will only use the highest quality oils and have had these especially formulated for our products. They are free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, glycols. These products are 97-99% natural and you will find in the ingredient list of the product whether it contains essential oil or fragrance.
