Look at all these new fragrance oils!! So excited to start making some new candles and wax melts in these scents for you all 😊
Ever wondered what the differences is between fragrance oils and essential oils?
Fragrance oils are created synthetically through a mix of aroma chemicals and natural ingredients, all of which are safe. This process just gives us the ability to make more fragrances and doesn’t limit us to the ones that can only be extracted from nature. The fragrance oils we use are paraben free, alcohol free, phthalate free, skin safe, cruelty free and not tested on animals!
Essential oils are solely extracted from certain plants and flowers in nature (ex: lavender, tea tree, etc). They have many great uses, like in bath bombs or in a diffuser, but they loose their therapeutic effects when burned in candles. Additionally, when you light a candle with essential oils, the oils burn and this can create toxic fumes for pregnant women and pets. This is not the case for all oils, but quite a few. For example, tea tree oil is never safe for birds(or many small animals). If you burn a candle with tea tree essential oil in your home and you have a pet bird, there is a very high chance your pet will suffer injuries or/and death.
For these reasons, we will always use fragrance oils in our candles and melts ☺️
