Grasse Fragrance Tutorials: 4 Essential Answers About Essential Oils
Welcome to our fragrance tutorial series! As the top fragrance and roller bottles wholesale supplier in Manila, The Grasse Fragrance team gets a lot of questions about perfume making and even essential oils. From carrier oils, essential oil roller bottles, or droppers, The Grasse Fragrance Company is now very familiar with this health and wellness staple.
In recent years, the community around essential oils has only grown stronger. Brands like Young Living and Dolterra have gained their own cult followings, with “oilers” spreading the news to more and more wellness enthusiasts. Packaging searches for roller bottles and essential oil droppers have been hitting all-time highs. And overall, the hype seems well-deserved: Essential oils are linked to numerous health and aromatherapy benefits, such as reduction of stress, anxiety, insomnia, to name a few.
It’s not too late to join the bandwagon. With so many essential oil enthusiasts, making your own blends or selling essential oil supplies can prove to be a lucrative venture. But first, you do have to know what you’re getting into. Here’s a quick guide on the essentials to get you up to speed:
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are highly concentrated compounds from plants, with a potent scent and flavor. They’re often distilled or cold-pressed straight from the source. This is why they’re said to carry the plant chemicals, at a concentration strong enough to induce health effects. Some popular examples are peppermint, lavender, rose, lemon, and more.
What are other needed essential oil supplies?
Because essential oils are so potent, they’re often mixed with carrier oils. These are neutral oils that help temper the effect of essential oils. Otherwise, if you apply pure essential oils directly on the skin with roller bottles, their strength might lead to irritation. The Grasse Fragrance Company stocks carrier oils such as fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, marula oil, and mineral oil for interested oilers.
How are essential oils used?
A few drops of the essential oil are usually mixed with a larger amount of carrier oil. The resulting blend can be applied to the skin, usually on the temples or forehead to induce a calming effect. Sometimes, the blends are applied to one’s wrists using roller bottles and their aroma inhaled for a relaxing sensation.
Where should I store essential oils?
Essential oils need to be handled with care. These strong substances can cause plastic containers to leach or deteriorate. Hence, glass bottles are best for essential oils. You may notice that most essential oil roller bottles and droppers are cobalt blue or dark amber. This is to prevent light from reacting with essential oils as well. To sum it up: you would be best looking for cobalt blue or dark amber glass droppers and roller bottles to store them in the long term.
Luckily, The Grasse Fragrance Company has a range of essential oil supplies for any oiler. Aside from carrier oils, our roller bottles, droppers, and other glass bottles are sure to help you out on your essential oil journey. There’s no better time to be an oiler now, with so many people and resources to share your oiling tips with.
