Essential Oils vs Chemical Fragrances

BsaB prides itself in using the highest-grade 100% natural essential oils rather than chemical and synthetic fragrances. Our essential oils and blends are pure and undiluted with no additives or fillers.

Essential Oils
Essential oils are natural aromatic oils extracted from plants. They are sometimes referred to as the essence or life-source of plants and are often used for aromatherapy. There are about 150 different individual essential oils all with unique scents and properties.

Chemical or Synthetic Fragrances
Chemical and synthetic-based fragrances are usually manufactured to duplicate or copy a certain scent. The first step is usually to analyze various essential oils and essential oil blends to figure out the individual chemical make-up. Chemists then blend the various chemicals to make the desired scents.

The National Academy of Sciences reported in 1986 that 95% of chemicals used in synthetic and chemical fragrances are derived from petroleum and include many carcinogenic materials. Many of these chemicals can have adverse side effects including cancer, birth defects, headaches and dizziness. The EPA released a study in 2001 reporting the synthetic and chemical fragrances were shown to cause “possible mutagenic and genotoxic effects.” The real problem with fragrances is that manufacturers are not required to disclose the exact ingredients used. So, basically you never really know what is in a fragrance. Simply put, chemical and synthetic fragrances should be avoided and definitely should not be burned anywhere around you.

How can you tell them apart?
This becomes a problem as well because manufacturers try and mimic genuine essential oils or even try and appear as if they are using essential oils. It is quite cheap and easy to make chemical and synthetic fragrances. Some companies will say “made with pure or natural essential oils” but never tell you the exact amount. At BsaB when we say 100% essential oils we mean 100% pure undiluted highest-grade essential oils blended by French Perfumists. Many companies will try and appear like they are using essential oils but in actuality they are not. The ones who say “made with essential oils” or “made using essential oils” are companies to look out for. Be sure that you use only 100% natural essential oils which are undiluted without fillers added.

BsaB uses 100% pure soy wax from the USA, 100% pure undiluted natural essential oils, 100% pure unbleached metal-free cotton wicks, 100% recycled and recyclable packaging, 100% soy ink printing, a 100% solar-powered production facility and uses 100% renewable resources. Put all of these together and you have healthy clean candles for you, your home, your family or your office.
