Fragrance Oils and Diethyl Phthalates (DEP)


Our name, From Nature With Love, is a testament to our passion, love and commitment for all things natural. We encourage our customers to utilize all-natural ingredients whenever possible, but we realize that it isn't always feasible or economical. For this reason, From Nature With Love supplies a selection of complementary ingredients including our lines of Cosmetic Grade Fragrance Oils and Candle Fragrance Oils.

Product quality, and the health and safety of our customers are the key priorities to our entire staff. From Nature With Love offers both natural and synthetic volatile aromatics. For natural volatile oils, look to our line of Essential Oils, Absolutes and CO2s carefully sourced, whenever possible, directly from small farms and distilleries throughout the world. Alternatively, From Nature With Love also offers two lines of Fragrance Oils. Instead of offering one single line of fragrance oils that compromises on gentleness in skin care, we offer our customers their choice of oils from our two fragrance oil lines. Our line of Cosmetic Grade Fragrance Oils utilize a base that is as gentle as possible for use in skin care products. Our separate line of Candle Fragrance Oils utilize a base that is ideally suited for burning in candles and in other room fragrancing applications such as potpourri.

We work closely with our fragrance oil supplier to ensure that the ingredients included in each of our fragrance oils is as gentle and safe as possible. Fragrance oils, however, do contain synthetics and do offer a host of advantages and disadvantages when compared to natural essential oils and other natural aromatics.

Diethyl Phthalates (DEP)

Diethyl Phthalates (DEP) is a controversial ingredient that is gaining increasing consumer awareness.

Bearing in mind that most of our fragrance oils do not include DEP, studies indicate that for those fragrances that do include DEP, the quantity of DEP in the fragrance oils is so negligible that any health risk from the DEP is minimal. Other studies, however, do allude to an array of health risks imposed by DEP, and we recognize that the inconclusive and conflicting information appearing in the media may cause alarm for some of our customers.

We wish to leave the decision to use or avoid fragrances that include DEP up to our valued customers. We want our customers to have the ability to shop our Fragrance Oil lines with confidence. The product descriptions for all fragrance products that we are aware contain DEP states this. We are in the midst of working closely with our fragrance supplier to identify if any other oils contain DEP and to arrange, if possible, to have DEP-containing fragrances reformulated.

Customer Testimonial

"I'm fourteen, and want to start making natural health and beauty products at home for myself. I predict that when I'm older I will go into a business in this area because of your site. The information offered on your site has been amazing to a beginner like me. The range of products is amazing. Yours is the first place I have actually found Rhassoul clay. I've been searching for ages as the stuff works wonders on my face. There's so many other examples of the products like this , but too many to list. It's mind-boggling to think of how long I've been searching, and here you've got it all. Finally, I want to comment on your customer service. It's excellent. You give information and one thing that stood out to me is if there is a negative comment, you try to find out why and comment on that. I love how it's a personalized message that shows you've shown effort to make your customers happier. Overall, your site has wowed me so much I felt the need to send you this email, commenting on it. I haven't yet placed the order due to financial changes I've been making lately, but I can assure you, I will be soon :)"
