Essential oils vs. scented candles

ED Origin Technology Co.,Ltd | Updated: Sep 09, 2017

Some people think that essential oils are out of their price range. After all, when people think “essential oils” they often image an expensive day spa. However, essential oils are in fact significantly less expensive than scented candles.藤条-1.jpgFor the math enthusiasts, here’s a breakdown:

A 22-Ounce Yankee Candle costs about $27 on Amazon, and is rated for somewhere between 110 and 150 hours. If we take the high end (150), and divide by the cost ($27), we get a cost of 18 cents per hour.

The essential oil math is a little bit more complicated.

There are approximately 20 drops in a milliliter of Lavender essential oil, and 29.574 milliliters in an ounce. This comes out to about 591 drops per ounce.

A four ounce bottle of Lavender essential oil costs about $10.50 on Amazon, which means you can purchase 2,364 drops of Lavender essential oil for $10.50, at a cost of $0.0044 per drop.

SmileyDaisy recommends that we use about 3 drops of oil per 100ml, which means in the 350ml Hibiscus tank, we would need 10.5 drops, which we will round up to 11 drops. At $0.0044 per drop, those 11 drops cost $0.0484.

A 350ml tank lasts somewhere between 6 and 7 hours. If we estimate conservatively, that means the 11 drops will last 6 hours. Since the cost of the 11 drops is $0.0484, then the cost per hour is $0.0081 cents.

This means that the product cost for an essential oil diffuser is 4.5% of what it would be for a scented candle. When put into the context that essential oils have health benefits and scented candles have potential health risks, the choice is easy — even when we account for the electricity costs of a diffuser.
