People commonly confuse the term essential oil with infused oils, not realizing they are in fact two different types of extraction. We also have the term herbal oils or aromatic oils, which also contributes to the confusion, as these terms have all been used interchangeable and applied to both essential oils and infused oils.

In the modern era of the essential oil craze, many forget to traditional usage of herbs infused into carrier oils to convey their medicinal properties. These forms of extract are easy to prepare at home without the necessity for distillation equipment, and are generally more sustainable in terms of the amount of plant material needed.
