All the essential oils obtained at primary distillation are Single Essential Oil whereas Blended Essential Oils are the combination of Single Essential Oils selected by the harmony of scents and benefits e.g. a sleep-inducing recipe may contains Single Essential Oils that have sedating benefits mixed with ones that have mind-calming benefits.
In the world of scents there are different kinds of oils obtained from different methods, and have different pros and cons, too. We are telling you about how PURE Essential Oil and Aroma Oil differ and why do the differences matter. Remember that only Pure Essential Oils have therapeutic properties in healing body and mind.
First, we must know what both oils are and how are they being used?
- What are pure essential oils?
Essential Oils are extracted from the aromatic plants by distillations with steam (or cold press) with effective therapeutic properties on body, brain and emotion because it contains biochemical compounds that when they get through the body through the smell, they can penetrate the central nervous system into the blood system. Each plants species has different therapeutic properties.
How are pure essential oils being used?
Essential oils are the key parts of aromatherapy used in a way to positively improve physical, emotional and mental health.
- What are aroma oils?
Fragrance oils or aroma oils as they may be called, are created in the labs and contain chemical substances. They are made to imitate the scents of nature but don’t have healing benefits like essential oils.
What are aroma oils used for?
Aroma oils are widely used in perfume and cosmetic industries e.g. the manufacturing of soaps, candles and mass household products.
Second, see the following example to distinguish them both clearly.
LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL VS LAVENDER AROMA OIL
The fragrance of pure essential oils can be duplicated. It’s true. But the benefits can’t be. There are many Lavender fragrance oils on the market. They all smell like lavender and long lasting. They are used to fragrance soaps, perfumes, cosmetics and candles but they have no other benefits the way pure essential oils do.
Lavender essential oil, on the other hand, offers a fresh aroma of Lavender plus a great deal of healing properties that may help with symptoms such as coughs, insomnia, hyperactivity, arthritis, muscle aches, rheumatism, acne, sunburn, wounds, insect bites, burns and irritability.
Use essential oils for their healing and therapeutic benefits and use fragrance oils for perfuming purposes.
- Although we can use essential oil many times a day, it is suggested to rather use it whenever feel like needing it in order to not overdose and to allow our body to create immunity naturally.
Although essential oils are the purest form of plants, they still should be used with care on the children skin as their skin is way more sensitive to essential oils than adults. Thus, the selection of essential oils to be applied on skin should be made with care and should be diluted as always and kindly note to test essential oils on children skin by applying on their feet once diluted.
The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) states that essential oils are safe for the pregnant especially those who are experiencing morning sickness and emotional ups and downs like nausea, headache, insomnia, anxiety, and other symptoms related to the circumstance. The essential oils recommended during pregnancy would be Lavender, Chamomile g Ylang. However, essential oils can generate drawbacks only when taking large, unsafe doses.
If you are pregnant or lactating and worried about this, you are highly recommended to discuss with a medical professional, who has experienced with essential oils for the pregnant in order to ensure safeness.
In general, it is safe to use some essential oils while you are pregnant, as long as you are healthy, and you are careful with them. Essential oils are highly concentrated substances extracted from plants. They are powerful, so it’s important to use them sparingly. Once inside the body, essential oils work in the same way as drugs or medicines. Because essential oil molecules are very small, there is a possibility that they may cross the placenta and reach your growing baby’s circulation.
If you want to use essential oils when pregnant, it’s best to take the following precautions;
- Only use 1 drop of essential oil at a time
- Try not to use one oil for a long time.
- Dilute the essential oil by making the drop with at least a teaspoon (5ml) of a carrier oil before you add it to a bath or smooth it over your skin.
- You can add drops of the oil to a vaporizer, but don’t leave it on for longer than 15 minutes in each hour.
- It’s best to start using essential oils after you past the first trimester.
People with sensitive skin may test skin reaction to essential oil by dropping one drop onto a wrist and leave on for 24 hours. If irritation occurs, stop using it immediately. Please note that using pure essential oil together with carrier or base oil as massage oil can reduce irritation potentials. It is recommended not to use several essential oils at a time because it is way easier to observe skin reaction with just one single essential oil on skin.
Essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with extra care for digestion. Please consult the essential oil expert before taking it internally.
Carrier Oil and Base Oil is generally used to dilute the concentration of essential oil before applying on skin. It helps essential oil to absorb into skin at ease. Among a variety of carrier oil, Fractioned Coconut Oil is well known for its odorless, non-greasy and nutrient-rich.
The best pots for rolling aroma oil would be the pulses as essential oil is basically stimulated by heat and body temperature. Thus, applying aroma oil on temples, base of neck, chest or backbone can help better the work of essential oil.
