WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS? 🌱

We don’t use synthetic fragrances to scent our butters. Everything is scented with essential oils. But what are they? 

Essential oils are like the essence of a plant. They are made from roots, seeds, flowers, or bark, which are steam distilled or manually compressed.

Essential oils are incredibly potent and very aromatic, smelling exactly like the plants they are extracted from. And research shows that they have unique benefits. For example, lavender, chamomile, sandalwood and bergamot oil promote relaxation. Spearmint, sweet orange, and lemon oil boost energy. Rose oil has antioxidants, which promote cell turnover, creating younger-looking skin. And peppermint oil promotes hair growth.

Because essential oils are so potent, they need to be diluted before being applied to skin. That’s why essential oil and body butter are a match made in heaven! 😇 Shea, cocoa and mango butter dilute essential oil, making it safe for skin application, while essential oil makes the butter smell amazing.

We use more than 20 essential oils in our formulations to create scents like Mocha LatteThe Woods and Orange Creamsicle. Getting creative with essential oils is one of the funnest aspects of our business!
