What are Essential Oils
An essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. Essential oils, contrary to the use of the word "oil" are not really oily-feeling at all. Most essential oils are clear, but some oils such as patchouli, orange and lemongrass are amber or yellow in color.
Essential oils contain the true essence of the plant it was derived from. Essential oils are highly concentrated and a little goes a long way.
Where essential oils are derived from the true plants, perfume oils are artificially created fragrances or contain artificial substances and do not offer the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer. However, fragrance oils are available is a wide variety of scents that are not available in essential oils.
Beneficial Properties of Oils, Butters, Minerals, and Botanical Extracts Used in Our Soap and Bath Products
Olive Oil is made from pressing the olive fruit. This oil is an excellent mositurizer because it attracts external moisture, holds the moisture close to the skin, and forms a breathable film to prevent loss of internal moisture. Also known for healing properties.
Palm Oil known for moisturizing with a creamy rich lather. We only use sustainable palm oil, which costs more but is worth it for many reasons. Learn why it is so important to use sustainable plam oil; save the environment and Orangutan.
Coconut Oil is considered a gift. Its discovery has contributed to higher grade soaps in addition to its rich, moisturizing lather. If used in too high of portions it can be drying. Many of these natural oils have replaced lard in high quality soaps.
Jojoba (Simmodsia chinensis [Latin]) is a perennial woody shrub grown primarily in the desert regions of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. Native Americans have long used jojoba to help heal sores and wounds. Today, jojoba oil is still most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, particularly for the maintenance of healthy skin.
Jojoba oil helps promote healing of the skin in many ways. It has antimicrobial properties, which means it actually discourages the growth of some bacterial and fungal microbes that attack the skin. In addition, the chemical composition of jojoba closely resembles that of the skin’s natural sebum, so it is easily absorbed and rarely causes allergic reactions, even in the most sensitive individuals.
Shea Butter is from the nut of the Shea Tree, also known as " The Tree of Life". The Shea tree only grows in the savannah region of Africa. It grows up to 60 feet and can live up to 200 years. The Shea Tree produces its fruits once a year. The nut in the center of the fruit when crushed and traditionally processed by boiling and extracting the oil, is what yields the vegetable fat known as Shea Butter. She butter contains vitamins A, E, and F, and fatty acids, which provide healing abilites superior to cocoa butter. This natural butter has proven cell regenerative, mositurizing, and anti-aging properties, which restore shine and beauty to skin and hair. Effective in preventing stretch marks, wrinkles, inflammation, eczema, and dryness from razor irriatation. Easily absorbs into the skin without clogging pores.
Shea butter has been used for centuries in Africa for cooking, and also as skin treatment for its amazing ability to renew, repair,and protect the skin against harsh climates. African healers and beauties like Cleopatra have known about shea butter for thousands of years. Shea butter is also called "Women's Gold," because extracting the butter from the nuts gives income to hundreds of thousands of rural African women.
Mango butter is extracted from the shelled fruit kernel of the mango tree, which is a tropical evergreen. This butter is highly emollient, softening and soothing to the skin. Mango butter has protective effects against UV radiation and also helps treat skin rash, eczema, insect bites, and poison ivy. Mango butter can help protect and heal skin from the damage caused by sunburn and frostbite. While mango butter is excellent for skin, it is often mixed with other ingredients because it is much harder than Shea butter.
Aloe Vera Butter is a combination of coconut oil and aloe vera. It is a soft, white butter with a low melting point.
Aloe Vera Butter has similar qualities to Aloe Vera Gel in that it soothes and helps heal dehydrated skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, sunburn and windburn.

Cocoa Butter is obtained from the same bean as chocolate and cocoa. Cocoa butter lays down a protective layer tht holds moisture to the skin, making it a good skin softener.
Calendula Flower used creams and washes are used to disinfect minor wounds and to treat infections of the skin. The antibacterial and immunostimulant properties of the plant make it extremely useful in treating slow-healing cuts and cuts in people who have compromised immune systems. The herb stimulates the production of collagen at wound sites and minimizes scarring. Gargling calendula water may ease sore throat. We make Calendula infused oils to add to natural creams/lotions.
Castor Oil is derived from the bean produced from the castor plant. Like olive oil and jojoba oil, castor oil acts as a humectant by attracting and retaining mositure to the skin.
