Your Custom Beard Oil Fragrance
A custom beard oil fragrance is a nice goal. Before you create your own formula learn some basics first... Most of us like to surround ourselves with scents of all kinds. No wonder, because they have many positive effects. Fragrances can affect our well-being and influence our mood. Perfume and essential oils are well-known scent carriers. But there is also a variant: the perfume oil.
Fragrances are complex chemical compounds. Natural and synthetic origins are usual. Natural fragrances are naturally occurring aromatic substances. They are produced by physical, enzymatic or microbiological processes. Synthetic and nature-identical fragrances are produced in the laboratory from artificial and/or natural substances.
Essential oil or perfume oil?
So what exactly is the difference between essential and perfume oil? Both have in common that you use an odorless oil as a carrier substance.
In fact, essential oil is a purely natural product. It is obtained by distillation from plants and other substances. Often the fragrances are very highly concentrated. Depending on their origin, you can purchase it pure - without a carrier substance.
In contrast, perfume oil is a synthetically produced fragrance. Therefore a much wider range of fragrances is available. You can use the fragrances either solo. But you can also combine them to a fragrance bouquet. If you want to enhance your beard with gingerbread scent during the Christmas season - for example. This is a perfume oil.
Custom Beard Oil Fragrance with perfume oil
A perfume oil is a very concentrated scent that has a much stronger effect than an eau de toilette. In fact, these oils are the basis of many perfumes. You can also use perfume oil in the desired scent as a perfume. It has some advantages compared to commercial perfume: For example the alcohol is missing. This irritates sensitive skin. It also ensures that the perfume evaporates more quickly. On the other hand, perfume oil stays closer to the body and lasts longer.
Many fragrances, including essential oils, contain so-called allergens, which can trigger allergies in sensitive people. If you are one of them, it is best to avoid perfumes completely. But hese reactions are rather unlikely with an economical use of scented oils.
Contrary to many claims, synthetic fragrances are not better or worse than natural, essential oils. The latter trigger irritations or allergies just as often as their artificially produced counterparts. How to choose the right essential oil
Which essential oils are out there? There are several: over 100 essential oils are extracted from the seeds, stems, flowers or other parts of a plant - or from the wood and bark of trees or the skin of fruits.
Peppermint oil smells particularly fresh and strong, while orange oil has a fruity sweet scent. Cedar wood brings a smoky-woody scent to your beard, rosewood smells much milder and flowery.
Which essential oils should I choose for my own beard oil?
How does a good scent work? Counter question: Which scent do you like best?
- Fruity with lemon or bergamot,
- sweet with vanilla.
- Tart, woody, leathery and earthy with tobacco and sandalwood.
One way of classifying fragrances is by differentiating them according to the volatility or adherence of different essential oils. A distinction is made here between top/head, heart and base notes.
Individual Scents with Top, Heart and Base
- Top notes are fresh scents that volatilize quickly. These scents are perceived first in a mixture, but they also evaporate relatively quickly. These include above all citrus oils, eucalyptus oils and pine oils. These are often used generously in mixtures, because the scent evaporates relatively quickly.
- Heart notes are mostly floral, soft notes. These scents stick and linger longer. They include lavender and palmarosa.
- Base notes are heavy scents and stick and linger the longest. These include mainly essential oils extracted from woods, resins and roots, such as sandalwood and cedarwood. But patchouli and vanilla also belong to the base notes. Fragrances of the base note are used rather sparingly in blends, because they usually have a rather intense scent.
Head, heart and base notes should be contained in a mixture in a balanced proportion.
Because fragrances of the top note evaporate fastest, you can use them relatively generously. On the other hand, you should use the often fragrance-intensive oils of the base notes rather sparingly.
