Here at Rx Los Angeles we blend our pure fragrance oils in-house to create the scents we use for all of our products. Our pure fragrance oils have not been diluted, and most contain some essential oils. We believe in making products that not only smell great, but work great too. With both essential and fragrance oils there are different quality levels. Usually, the quality of the oils are reflected in the price. We're able to keep are prices affordable by not having elaborate packaging, using word of mouth marketing, and by selling directly to our customers.
It's a common myth that essential oils are better than synthetic. It just depends on what you are using it for and the quality you purchase. We believe for our products fragrance oils are the way to go. This is for a few reasons; fragrance oils burn stronger, the quality we use is skin safe and safe to use around pets, much more cost effective, and so many different scents can be made. Even though essential oils are natural, not all are skin safe or even safe for pets.
Our oils are all skin safe, phthalate free, vegan and cruelty free. They work great in diffusers, humidifiers, and candles warmers. In addition, you can use them to scent any unscented products like lotion. You can put them on dryer balls, or to refresh scented sachets. See our Instagram page for more inspiration!
