A: Fragrance Notes, aromatic oils or perfume oils are manufactured scents. They are artificially created fragrances and they contain artificial substances. They are specifically designed to mimic the scent of a natural product (such as coffee fragrance oil) or are created to invoke a feeling (for example "toasted marshmallow"). The range of scents is broad and fragrance oils are usually very affordable. Fragrance Notes are used primary in the cosmetic and perfuming industry to add scent to a variety of products for the body. They are also used in products for scenting the home such as candles, reed diffusers, lampe bergers, incense and oil warmers.
A: Essential Oils are naturally occurring substances found in different parts of plants - the blossom, fruit, leaf, stem, bark, wood or resin. Through a complicated and often expensive process of steam distillation or solvent extraction, both hydrosol and essential oils are produced. Each essential oil is comprised of between 50 to 500 different naturally occurring chemicals, which can have both positive and negative effects. Most essential oils are used for aromatherapy. They are used in a way to positively affect physical, emotional and mental health. They enter the body through the skin (via massage or bath) or the olfactory system (via a diffuser or humidifier). Essential oils may be used to enhance mood, to relieve symptoms such as pain, fatigue or inflammation, or be used to kill germs. They are also used in the cosmetic and fragrance industry as well.
A: Absolutely not! All of Vetiver's products contain no animal products nor are they tested on animals. They are all Vegan, the with exception of Beeswax. Beeswax is considered to be Vegetarian, because although it does not harm any bees in the process it is still by-product of the animal.
