First, let's get to know perfumes and essential oils. Perfume is a liquid mixed with essential oils, fixatives, alcohol and ethyl acetate, used to give objects (usually the human body) a lasting and pleasant odor. The essential oil is taken from flowers and plants, and is extracted by distillation or fat absorption, and organic substances with fragrance can also be used. Fixatives are used to combine various spices, including balsam, ambergris, and secretions from the gas glands of civet cats and musk deer. The concentration of alcohol or ethyl acetate depends on whether it is perfume, eau de toilette or cologne.
Essential oils are volatile aromatic substances extracted from the flowers, leaves, stems, roots or fruits of plants by steam distillation, extrusion, cold soaking or solvent extraction. Essential oils are divided into diluted (compound essential oil) and undiluted (single essential oil) such as cactus seed oil. Essential oils are very volatile and will evaporate quickly when exposed to air. For this reason, essential oils must be stored in dark bottles that can be sealed. Once opened, they must be closed as soon as possible.
Most pure essential oils are extracted from plants by steam distillation. Hang the newly picked plants above the boiling water, and the steam will bring the essential oil out of the plants. The rising steam is captured by a container and flows down the tube. At this time the hot steam cools quickly and condenses into water again. This separates the essential oil from the water and collects the essential oil. The water remaining after the extraction of essential oils is a by-product of distillation. Some plants contain fragrances that are very soluble in water, and they remain in the water after distillation. These waters are very fragrant and are valued by aromatherapy experts, who regard her as a hydrosol. In aromatherapy, hydrosols are used extensively in skin moisturizing products.
The most straightforward method of producing essential oils is to squeeze the pulp, seeds, and skins of plants—similar to the way olive oil is obtained. This process is widely used in the peels of citrus plants, such as oranges, lemons, limes or grapefruits, because the essential oils in the peels of these plants are easily squeezed out. Essential oils that can be generally extracted by pressing are: lemon, orange, grapefruit, red mandarin, bergamot.
Perfume is usually used on the surface of the human body to increase the fragrance. Essential oils can enter the body through smearing or aromatherapy.
"Can I put perfume in the aroma diffuser machine?" In fact, it is allowed. However, it is not recommended to use perfume in an ultrasonic essential oil diffuser. The biggest difference between perfumes and essential oils is that perfumes are compounds and are artificially synthesized. The essential oil is directly extracted from the plant without adding other substances. If you really like perfume, the method of dropping perfume into the aromatherapy machine is not impossible, but the effect is not good. The perfume is diluted in water, the middle tone will disappear completely, the taste will become strange, and it will not make much sense to lose all the original characteristics of the perfume. Also, be careful when choosing essential oils. Through regular channels, the use of high-purity essential oils in aroma oil diffuser can achieve better results.
