Fragrance Oils, Flavor Oils, Flavor Extracts and Essential Oils

Many people, especially when first embarking on their first handmade bath and body product adventure, are confused as to the differences between fragrance oils, flavor oils, flavor extracts and essential oils. It’s not a very complicated subject but the names can be a bit misleading.

Fragrance Oils
Fragrance oils are synthetic and often able to capture a wide range of scents. While they may contain some natural ingredients, they are primarily not derived from nature and are generally not suitable for use in items that may be ingested, even accidentally (like lip balm.)

Flavor Oils
Flavor Oils, like fragrance oils, are often derived from synthetic processes, however the name is a bit of a misnomer as they aren’t really flavored, but rather are fragrances that are safe to ingest, such as those used in making lip balms. The oil is typically combined with a sweetener, as flavor is really a combination of the basic taste sensations (sweet, sour, bitter, salt and umami), texture, temperature and scent; scent being the most defining portion of any taste. Ingestion of a larger quantity is not recommended and one wouldn’t typically use flavor oils as a flavor additive in food items.

Flavor Extracts
Flavor extracts are extracts typically from natural sources, although not always. Many times they are diluted forms of an essential oil that is safe to ingest. They are intended to impart a fuller flavor component to baking, cooking and beverages. They are formulated to withstand high heat with minimal breakdown to impart the desired flavor even after cooking.

Essential oils
Essential oils are highly concentrated oils extracted from nature (plants, flowers, seeds) which carry the scent and beneficial properties of that particular plant. As such they are not always safe for consumption or application to skin. One should thoroughly research any essential oil they intend on using as it can be highly dangerous to work with many of the essential oils available.

Some people are sensitive to specific scents either man made or natural. Please understand that we cannot know if you may have a particular sensitivity to any of the ingredients. If you are unsure if you may have a reaction we suggest you do further research on that fragrance before using it.
