- Essential Oils
We use Organic Essential Lavender Oil in our olive and jojoba oils because some users prefer the scent compared to the unscented versions.
Lavender oil comes mostly from the fragrant flowers of lavender plants and is widely used in perfumes, incense, potpourri and cosmetics because of how well it can blend with other essential oils. It is popular in aromatherapy due to its soothing, clean aroma.
In skin care, lavender tends to have antifungal and antiseptic properties and is used by those seeking natural skin aids to help treat acne, inflammation, psoriasis, wrinkles and other skin problems.
Many people also use lavender for holistic purposes. Its calming scent can help calm nerves and anxiety and may help lessen headaches and improve sleep. Using it on sore, tense muscles may provide temporary pain relief and improve blood circulation. It is often used for helping to treat colds, bronchitis, asthma and other respiratory issues and is often effective for killing lice in hair.
Like other essential oils, lavender isn’t recommended for women while pregnant or breastfeeding or for diabetics. If you have sensitive skin and experience any problems while using lavender oils, discontinue use.
Vanilla Essential Oil
We use organic vanilla essential oil in versions of our Jojoba and Coconut oils because many users prefer scented versions. Vanilla is a very popular scent.
Vanilla essential oil is extracted from a resin-like substance found in fermented vanilla beans. Vanilla beans come from a creeping plant. While some artificial vanilla flavors aren’t really vanilla and are instead synthesized, the essential oil we use is real vanilla, diluted in wild crafted fractionated coconut oil.
In natural health, vanilla is used for a wide variety of potential benefits, including as a natural antioxidant, antidepressant and for its soothing properties. The extract includes small portions of B-complex vitamins like thiamin, B-6, riboflavin, niacin and panthothenic acid.
