The Difference Between Selling Body Oil and Perfume Oil

The Difference Between Selling Body Oil and Perfume Oil

What exactly is a body oil? Body oils are made from natural ingredients such as carrier oils, essential oils and plant-based extracts. These ingredients are blended together to create a moisturizing skin treatment that are designed to be used on the body. Body oils usually aren't meant to be worn as a perfume or cologne. Perfume oil is very similar in many ways—it's also made with essential oils, plant extracts or fragrance oils—but it has more concentrated levels of these ingredients than body oil does! That makes it smell stronger and last longer.

Body oils are thicker & contain more moisturizing ingredients.

Body oils are a little heavier, and contain more moisturizing ingredients than perfume oil. Body oil can be formulated using heavy and light oils so the consistency is thicker than perfume oils. Perfume oil is convenient and portable; you can carry a bottle around with you easily no matter where you go—to work, on a date, or when travelling! The perfumes are also lighter than body oils so they’re perfect during warm weather.

Perfume oil is more concentrated.

Perfume oils are more concentrated than body oils. This means that they contain a higher concentration of the essential oils and fragrances used to make them, meaning that they last a longer time on your skin. 

Perfume oil lasts longer.

Perfume oil is more concentrated than body oils, which means that it can last longer. Sprays are also absorbed by the skin and evaporate quickly. Perfume oil is applied directly on the skin, where it lingers longer than other types of perfume products; however, it can take a few minutes for your nose to adjust before you notice its full scent.

Perfume oil is convenient and portable.

Perfume oil is convenient and portable. You can carry it with you wherever you go, and it’s easy to use. It’s also easy to store because perfume oils are typically small and light in weight—perfect for the traveling woman! Body oil bottle sizes can range from 1 ounce to 10 ounces and can sometimes be harder to travel with.
