Essential Oil Solubiliser (Dispersant)

Essential Oil Solubilser is used to mix essential oil(s) into water-based products. This ensures the essential oil(s) stay mixed, without requiring constant agitation.

Why use a solubilser\dispersant? Essential oil(s) are not soluble in water.  It is similar to trying to combine oil and vinegar in a salad dressing. No matter how well you shake the two together, the oil will eventually separate from the vinegar.

If no dispersant is used in making products water-based products such as room sprays, this will result in product separation. Such products are considered unattractive\unprofessional, and may have concentration or safety issues due to the essential oils not being evenly distributed.

Using an essential oil solubilser ensures essential oil(s) are uniformly dispersed within a product, so the concentration is the same throughout.

Examples of where a dispersant can be used are:
– adding essential oils to your bath,
– making perfume or spritz using essential oils and water.
