The information given in this document is to the best of our knowledge true and as accurate as possible.  All data is made without guarantee.

As we carried out our research our findings varied enormously.  If in doubt, ask your supplier or refer to the Safety Data Sheet supplied by your supplier.

Essential oils are natural compounds and the flash point may vary slightly from batch to batch.

An oil with a lower flash point can be blended with an oil with a higher flashpoint to make it more tolerable to heat.  For example blending lemon (low) with patchouli (high) will help lemon to become more stable at temperatures between 48-80oC

 

Definition of flash point

All essential and fragrance oils and aroma chemicals are volatile and will evaporate, some more than others (due to their low flash point).  Most are flammable, but the temperature at which they ignite differs from oil to oil.

Flammable liquid has vapour pressure.   As the temperature of the oil increases, the vapour pressure increases and as the vapour pressure increases, the volume of evaporated liquid in the air increase.  Flash point is the minimum temperature at which there is sufficient evaporated oil in the air to ignite.
