Non-Organic vs Organic Essential Oils

Non-Organic vs Organic Essential Oils: What’s the Difference?

Are organic essential oils better than their non-organic counterparts? Do they have a higher quality? Are they safer?

In the world of essential oils (EO’s), the difference between organic or bio and non-organic, or conventional oil varieties is always a subject of broad interest and debate.

With society putting a growing emphasis on natural and sustainable products, more and more consumers are naturally turning to organic essential oils as an alternative to most conventional options at their disposal. 

But what is it exactly that sets them apart? As a leading wholesale supplier of organic essential oils, we believe that we at Scents from Nature are uniquely positioned to delve into the differences between non-organic and organic essential oils, their benefits, applications, and some of the best non-conventional essential oils on the market today.


What are Organic Essential Oils?

Organic essential oils are Eos derived from plants that have been grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In short, bio-organic essential oils are ethically sourced: pure, natural, and free from any artificial additives.

That is precisely the definition of the term, which refers to the farming or production methods used. When ethically or sustainably sourced, these methods help preserve soil quality, minimize the use of any chemicals or synthetics, and contribute to long-term sustainability.

Which means that not all EOs need to be organic. At Scents from Nature, the term ‘organic’ or bio also denotes our company’s efforts to study and preserve the most diverse Angolan native plant species. And therein is the biggest difference between the two.


Organic Essential Oils vs Non-Organic

While some consumers prefer organic essential oils due to the way they are produced, the choice between non-organic and organic essential oils often comes down to personal preference and values.

Non-organic or “conventional” EOs may include the use of specific chemicals (like pesticides) for several reasons, including possible cost-efficiency assessments, overall environmental impacts, or even the level of availability of raw materials.

Even so, organic essential oils still possess several exclusive benefits, namely due their purity and natural production methods.


The Benefits of Organic Essential Oils

Organic essential oils share most of the same benefits found in conventional oils, with a few added advantages.

However, it is important to note that each benefit also directly depends on the plant from which the oil has been extracted in the first place. For example, the benefits found in Vetiver will naturally differ from those found in Wild Verbena.

The same applies for the extraction methods utilized. At Scents from Nature, all our essential and vegetable oils are either steam-distilled or cold-pressed, respectively. 

That being said, organic essential oils tend to be more vigorous, and pure, presenting a richer aroma.

However, their most impressive feature relies on their sustainability factor: organic essential oils are environmentally friendly and support more sustainable farming practices. 


Applications of Organic Essential Oils

Applications of organic essential oils are as diverse as the plants they derive from. One single organic EO can find its way into a number of different industries and applications.

Take the lemon eucalyptus organic essential oil as an example. This quality organic essential oil can be applied within the cosmetic industry, as well as personal care and hygiene, particularly skincare, fragrances, perfumery, and aromatherapy.

This citrusy-scented oil is an integral part of hundreds of products that touch our lives, every single day. From cosmetics products that help enhance beauty to personal care products that help maintain a healthy skin to the perfumes that define personal style, and the aromatherapy practices that help balance mind and body.


Organic Essential Oils for the Cosmetics Industries

Organic essential oils are widely used in the cosmetics industry for their therapeutic properties and natural fragrances. 

They can enhance the effectiveness of beauty products by providing additional benefits such as anti-aging, skin nourishing, and stress-relieving effects.

EOs such as Lemon Eucalyptus, African Immortelle, Resurrection Bush, Muhuhu African Sandalwood, or even Angolan Basil and Vetiver organic essential oils are amongst the most precious organic essential oils used for crafting exquisite cosmetic products.

What are the Best Organic Essential Oils?

It is impossible to list the best organic essential oils. This is due to three fundamental reasons: market demands and consumer preferences; production methods; and clients’ needs.

First, market demands and consumer preferences continuously change over time; second, we work closely with local Angolan communities to research and help preserve local flora, which narrows (and focuses) our expertise; and third, our clients’ needs also change, not only according to the products they develop but also according to their brand strategies and even personal preferences.

Nevertheless, we know that market demands and consumer preferences list “green, natural, and organic” as a priority in their decision-making process. And if we add this to our professional experience and expertise, keeping in mind the main applications of organic essential oils, five plants do stand out:

  • Lemon Eucalyptus;
  • African Immortelle;
  • White Verbena; 
  • Resurrection Bush;
  • Muhuhu African Sandalwood.

These organic essential oils have already proven themselves in terms of aroma, benefits, efficacy, and possible industry applications.

Our Lemon Eucalyptus, African Immortelle, White Verbena, Resurrection Bush, and Muhuhu African Sandalwood are all ethically sourced, in line with current market demands and sure to add value to your product line.
