Plant-Based Fragrance Oil Usage Guidelines

Our Plant-Based Fragrance Oils can be used in a wide range of personal care products, soap making and candle making applications. Due to the nature of their composition, they may not behave like synthetic fragrance oils which contain synthetic stabilizers. Preliminary testing and experimentation are important when working with plant-based fragrance oils to overcome any challenges they may present when formulating natural personal care, soap and candle products.

The maximum usage guidelines varies for each Plant-Based Fragrance Oils and is based on the specific essential oils and natural components contained within each of the oils.

Customer Testimonial

"Each time I use your Web site, I am thrilled with how complex and thorough the information is and yet how intuitive and simple the site is to use. I do the majority of my shopping online and work as part of a huge global company's knowledge distribution arm, so I review and use lots of sites. The FNWL site is the best I have encountered from a consumer prospective. It must take an incredible amount of resources to maintain and I just want to say thank you for going to that level of effort! I have learned so much from reading the detailed product information and loved the items I've purchased. Thank you!"
