Essential Oil Soaps
Essential oils extracted from plants through steam distillation or cold pressing provide many benefits when used in handmade natural soaps compared to synthetic fragrance oils. Essential oils contain the natural compounds, aromas, and therapeutic properties of the plants they come from. This makes them gentler, purer, and often more effective than artificial fragrances.
Essential oils like lavender, peppermint, and tea tree have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties that can benefit skin when used in soaps. They also contain antioxidants that help fight free radicals caused by pollution.
Fragrance oils are cheaper but can contain hidden chemicals and allergens not found in pure essential oils. For customers seeking natural, non-toxic beauty products, soaps scented with essential oils are a healthier choice. With aromatherapeutic benefits and plant-based purity, essential oils are the superior choice over synthetic fragrances for artisanal, natural soaps and other bath products.
