Essential Oil Products
These products all contain 100% natural essential oils.
There are two common ways to add scent to soap. One uses truly all natural essential oils, pressed or steamed directly from the plant they smell like. Some examples are lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, and tea tree. Essential oils are generally more expensive to use than fragrance oils, and many are certified organic. Essential oils have a real therapeutic effect, containing sometimes hundreds of natural compounds from plants, and can be used holistically.
The fragrance oils commonly used in soap making are not natural or organic. They are man made. Some resemble natural essential oil scents, but many have no counterpart in nature at all.
