soap with essential oils

What are essential oils?

If you've looked around at our products, you'll see that we use essential oils - a lot. They are incredible natural ingredients that impart scents into our product. But what exactly are they?


An essential oil is a concentrated liquid from plants. Essential oils are also known as the oil of the plant from which they were extracted, such as "oil of peppermint." An essential oil is "essential" in the sense that it contains the "essence of" the plant's fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. Essential oils typically evaporate completely without leaving a stain or residue.


Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation often by using steam. They are premium ingredients used for adding scents to products - naturally.
