hi everyone!
i'm confused about the difference between essentiel oils - essences - fragrances?
i found in a small shop an ESSENCE of orange blossom but i'm really confused if it is like an EO or a FO.?
i'm developing my lip balm recipe and when i use EO on it the scent disapear in 3-7 days
so i want to add a strong scent on it.
In my country we do not have fragrance availuble in small shops or super market, but ESSENCEs are availuble
here is the essence that i bought in the link down:

Essential oil is made from plant matter, whether it be flowers, leaves, bark, or root. It IS the essence of the plant.

Fragrance oils are made in a laboratory.
