This is the time of year when the air is bursting with holiday scents. But what are all these scents made of? Perfumes and scented products can be made using a variety of ingredients, some natural and others synthetic. Essential Oils are oils that have been distilled from the flowers, leaves, stems or berries of plants and retain the therapeutic benefit of the mother plant. They are completely natural and un-meddled with by man. Fragrance Oils are usually a blend of synthetically scented oils that have been diluted with propylene glycol or mineral oil.
