Do you know about the different oils used in our products?
A good amount of our products contain Natural Oils! Essential oils and carrier oils provide therapeutic effects for our skin.
Essential oils are highly concentrated oils used for healing and holistic purposes and can be too strong for the skin alone. Ie. Tea tree oil, lemongrass oil, peppermint oil, etc. They each contain individual properties that have been proven to be beneficial for improving well-being.
Carrier oils, that can be applied directly to the skin, are oils that come from fatty parts of a plant like its nuts, seeds, or kernels. Carrier oils help dilute the essential oils and help them to be "carried" into the skin. Ie. Jojoba oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado oil, Coconut Oil, etc.
