Fragrance Oils Explained


What are fragrance oils?

Fragrance oils are used to make a number of cosmetic products, like cologne,
perfume, soaps, candles, lotions, etc. Perfume and Cologne are made by adding
fragrance oil to alcohol. The mixture is 10% oil and 90% alcohol. Cologne and
perfume sprays only last for a short time. This is because the alcohol speeds up
the evaporation process. This is why perfume and cologne is so strong when first
sprayed and then dissipates so quickly. These fragrance oils contain absolutely
no alcohol. Because oil takes much longer to evaporate these cologne and perfume
oils give off a consistent aroma that lasts.

Some other ideas...

Fragrance oils have multiple uses. Try adding a few drops to some burning
candle wax, bath water, ceiling fan, simmering water on the stove, lotion, soap,
hair brush, or some cotton balls. You can place the cotton balls in your
dresser, put them in a open container and place them in your bathroom, bedroom,
closet, anywhere. Pure fragrance oils will out last any air freshener bought at
the retail store.
