Fragrance oils are the synthetic equivalent of volatile oils. As such they do not have the therapeutic effect that is found with the natural oils. The scent does not last as long without the addition of extenders. There are some benefits to using fragrance oils over essential oils when the scent is the only critical factor, not the least of which is the fact that they are more easily manufactured (the ratio of plant matter required to oil produced is extremely high - anywhere from 1lb of cloves to make 1oz of oil to, 60lb of cedrat to 1oz of oil). They are cheaper to manufacture and can be made in a wider variety of scents. find all NHC pages containing: fragrance oil
