User tips for essential oil in the sauna
The reason you use pure essential oil is because if you dose it correctly, the pure scents work more economically as a pouring agent because you simply need less. But then you have to maintain the correct dosage for every odor. A disadvantage of this is that dosing takes more time and knowledge of the product. So pay attention to the quantities indicated on the bottles. This is the reason that we use odor strengths for all scents where odor strength 1 is the lowest and odor strength 6 is the highest.
What are essential oils?
Essential oils are the essence or life force of a plant. They have powerful properties of the herbs from which they are extracted. All essential oils are natural, undiluted or blended, meet the European pharmacopoeia and are suitable for aromatherapy. They are often used as sauna oil.
An explanation about essential oil
Essential oils are becoming increasingly popular because more and more people want to return to nature. An essential oil is the natural protector of the plant and has been used for human well-being for many years. An essential oil is therefore a volatile oil, which evaporates when exposed to the air.
Most variants of essential oil are liquid, but there are also semi-solid and fully solid variants. Given the scarcity, purchase and extraction of essential oils can vary, the prices of essential oils are not always fixed. The price depends on the different ingredients. For example, Bergamot oil is much more expensive than Sweet Almond oil.
Rose oil, Lemon oil, Lavender oil, what are the costs?
Essential rose oil is extracted from rose petals, for example, the cost of rose oil (ethereal) is very higher because a rose leaf contains relatively little essential oil. For 300 ml of Rose oil (Rosa Damascena oil), 1000 kg of rose petals are used. Distilling, for example, lavender oil (1 liter) (Lavandula Angustifolia) requires approximately 150 kilos of lavender blossom. Lemon oil is obtained by pressing from lemon peels. Lemon peels contain relatively more essential oil than lavender blossom or rose petals, so lemon oil is also cheaper than lavender oil and rose oil.
