Essential Oils (PEO) are different from Fragrance Oils.
PEOs are those extracted from plant material and would therefore
contain the plant's natural essense. These essenses
have reputed therapeutic values and they also retain a plant's magickal
they are overpoweringly fragrant or spicy which is a good thing
because you would need only a few drops in a carrier oil or base
to enjoy its fragrance.
oils, on the other hand, in a concentrated form would be just as
strong in scent, but they are synthetically prepared. Although sometimes
it would be blended with some of the plant essential oils, it is
not prepared purely from plant essenses and would therefore not
have the same properties as PEOs in a therapeutic and magical sense.
However, these oils are useful as additives to make pure essential
blends smell better or simply as ambient scents.
PEOs and fragrance oil concentrates should not be used directly
on the skin. For massage or perfume purposes, they should be first
added to a carrier base oil or alcohol. A few drops in an aromatherapy
jar also goes a long way as room scent for setting the mood for
meditation, healing, ritual, romance or for your simple pleasure.
