Why essential oils vs fragrance oils?
Aromatherapy is an intricate synergy of essential oils producing a natural aroma. The essential oils are the life "essence" of the plant derived from its various parts such as the root, bark, twig, cone, needle, fruit (including the rind!), seed, flower, or grass. Our daily diet includes various plants and vegetables that contain essential oils; this intake allows our body to become accustomed to processing the multitude of chemical components in the oils. The oils are phytonutrients with complex biological properties that can energize, calm, boost the immune system, relax muscles, stimulate circulation, detoxify, relieve anxiety, de-stress, and much more. A single oil can contain over a hundred different plant compounds that offer a wide range of multiple healing properties in the same oil. In addition, essential oils are also known to have antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Lavender is a great example of an essential oil that functions effectively to calm, relieve depression and insomnia, relax muscles, heal scars and wounds, treat burns, and reduce infection, etc.
Why is it important for me to use natural and/or organic products for my skin?
The majority of cosmetic products and perfumes are manufactured with synthetic fragrances. These products contain only a small amount of botanical and plant extracts because it is 20x cheaper to produce synthetic fragrance than essential oils. Synthetic fragrances have been recognized as common allergens and sensitizers due to the countless chemicals infused in a single formula. An average perfume formula may contain at least a hundred different chemicals. These synthetic chemicals are foreign to our body which make them difficult for the body to process and released from the lyphatic system. As a result, these chemicals formed into toxins. The main benefit of synthetic chemicals is stabilization and functioned as a fixative for extended shelf life. As the product ages, however, its chemical composition will alter (dependent on its exposure to air, light, and water). This alteration can expose additional harmful chemicals to the user and release heavier toxin fumes into the environment. Since the FDA does not require labeling products with synthetic ingredients, beauty companies are free to market their products in a misleading manner. Essance values full transparency which is why we list every single ingredient that goes into our products so you can be informed and educated on what you put on your body.
