Essential Oils

Is it possible to smell good without slathering your body in toxic, synthetic, mystery ingredients? We believe so!

One of the most common questions we get is what exactly is in our products? We talked a little about that too in this blog dedicated to babies. Today we are going to focus on some benefits of using essential oils in our products.
 
First, we should explain what essential oils are...
 
Essential oils are defined as "a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted". In short: essential oils are a way to give a product a pleasing smell while being a natural and safe.  Essential oils are much more expensive than fragrance and like any other ingredient, come in levels of purity. The essential oils that we use are organic from a USA-owned company.

So now we know that essential oils smell good and are safe. But did you know that they have other benefits as well?
 
Depending on which oil or combination of oils are used, the user can reap benefits physically, mentally, and even emotionally. One of our favorite examples is lavender for relaxation and stress-relief. We offer soap and body butter which promise to leave your skin fresh and supple with a calming atmosphere about you. Fun fact: it's also Ellie's favorite! Need some extra help calming down? Lavender also helps with anxiety and falling asleep. But lavender isn't the only calming essential oil: patchouli also makes the list. Try our That 70's soap and body butter sure to please hippies and non-hippies alike.

A word of caution: essential oils need to be thoroughly researched prior to use. Like any substance, they can cause an allergic or adverse reaction in some people and should be applied to a small test area of skin first. Never apply an essential oil directly to your skin - it has to be diluted in a "carrier" first. Some essential oils are not safe for children, pets, or pregnant/nursing mamas. Check with your medical provider if you have any questions!
