Perfume Oils and Essential Oils

1. What is the difference between perfume oil, fragrance oil, and body oil?

Since all the three terms are used to describe one single product, there is a confusion.There are basically two types of oil. The first type is any oil that can be used on the body. The second type is oil that is not meant for the body and must be used only for another primary use,i.e. creating candles and soaps. However, many oils that are not meant for the body are being sold as body oils. Though these oils will usually not cause any harm to the body, they are cheap and made of an inferior quality oil. Hence rather than getting concerned about product specification, the consumer should check whether the oil is meant to be used on the body or not.

2. Does the thickness or thinness of the oil affect the quality or scent intensity of the oil?

Absolutely not. Thickness or thinness has nothing to do with oil quality or scent intensity. For example, Egyptian Musk is traditionally the thickest oil, but has a very mild fragrance.  In contrast, Sudanese Coconut oil has a very thin consistency, but gives a strikingly strong fragrance. Only a handful of oils are thick, while most oils have a thin consistency.

3. Why do many competitors or vendors sell oils very inexpensively, while our prices are higher than most?

There are different grades of oils-the cheaper the grade, the less expensive the oil.  “Grade A” oils, which are the only oils we sell, are the finest quality oils to be found as they are 100% pure and natural , thus they are a bit more expensive than lower grades.  

4.   Why does the color of oil seem to change from time to time?

Depending on the season, oils will differ in color because of the crop season; since most oils have natural ingredients, the time of year they are created will have bearing on the color.  For example, an apple grown in May is not going to have the same color as an apple grown in December.

5.   what is the shelf life of your oils?

Since our oils do not contain any alcohol or water, the problem of evaporation does not exist.  As long as the oils are kept away from extreme heat and sunlight, they will last longer. However, the change is observed in the color. You will find some exceptional oils that develop a deeper scent over time, which is called marrying or maturing.  

6. Are your oils all natural? I have sensitive skin.

Yes we have all 100% natural oils without any synthetic chemicals added. Normally people with sensitive skin have a problem with alcohol because it is a drying agent and not the perfume itself, and therefore we prefer to sell natural oils.
