What are essential oils?
If you’ve ever picked up a hand soap that’s smelt just like fresh Orange, Lemon or Citrus, like our Citrus Fusion Bar Soap, it could be due to the use of essential oils.
In basic terms, essential oils are highly concentrated liquids that are fragrant.
Capturing the distinctive scent of natural plants, through a distillation process, the oils are used in a range of beauty products and in aromatherapy that aims to utilize the characteristics of each plant.
There are hundreds of essential oils, reflecting the diverse natural world, all with their own unique qualities.
Essential oils don’t only make for great smelling beauty products, they can bring other benefits too.
Adding essential oils into beauty routine can harness the natural qualities and characteristics of plants when they’re blended correctly. Our Organic Foaming Soap contains essential oils that are great for your skin!
