Using Essential Oils in Aromatherapy
The market for aromatherapy is booming and is reaching numerous different industries. Beyond the massage clinic, aromatherapy has also reached into people’s homes. Products ranging from soaps, lotions, shampoos and other cosmetics to air fresheners and home cleaning products are all making use of scent as a way of altering people’s perceptions to help them relax, give them more energy, and effect numerous other changes, all with the power of scent.
Aromatherapy represents one of the biggest and most challenging markets for fragrance designers. This is in large part because the aromatherapy market also aligns with other growing market trends, such as the desire for organic products and the desire for products crafted with all-natural ingredients – just one of the many reasons that essential oils are so popular in the production of aromatherapy products.
In addition to their wide availability, another key factor in the use of essential oils is their diversity, as they are used in many types of natural products. From Advanced Biotech’s Natural Bulgarian Rose Oil to Natural Ginger Oil to Natural Tea Tree Oil, there are many types of Essential Oils available from Advanced Biotech that can be used to craft fantastic products for use in aromatherapy, so fragrance designers should be aware of the many types of products that are available.
Special considerations must be made when it comes to crafting fragrance products with an aromatherapy focus. Among the most important things to keep in mind is the way that the product will be used. Essential oils, while a key component in many aromatherapy practices, are not often ideal for direct use on the skin. Fragrance designers must, therefore, find ways of mixing and integrating these essential oils with other ingredients to retain their all-natural properties while making them safe for use on the sensitive areas of the body.
Meanwhile, those seeking to use essential oils in other types of products must consider the purpose of that product. Aromas used within the home must be long lasting and safe for use within the home while still retaining the natural scent that makes them ideal for use in aromatherapy applications. It can be a bit of a challenge, but it is one that fragrance designers are taking in stride, and for good reason. As the demand for aromatherapy increases, so too does the demand for various fragrance products, and that’s something that any fragrance designer finds to be a relaxing notion.
