Some products that we make may be of particular use during this viral pandemic, due to the content of anti-viral oils. Or, perhaps your hands are feeling the effects of so much hand washing! Our hand soap and balms may be the perfect solution for dry skin relief. Below are a few products that are particularly relevant at this time:
Pure Essential Oils
Essential oils can be used in diffusion, inhaled directly, applied to the body directly in lotions, oils, and salves; or added to the bath or used in the shower. Essential oils, with some exceptions, should always be diluted in respect for their potency. These pure plant oils provide emotional support, pain-relief, have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, as well as many other properties that support physical and mental well-being.
These are used to efficiently distribute essential oils in the air. We have several models in stock, including a car model.
These two blends are generously infused with oils that offer respiratory support and have anti-viral components, such as eucalyptus, ravensara, thyme, lavender, and peppermint.
This has a gentle, organic soap base that does not strip your hands of vital moisture. It is also full of anti-viral and anti-bacterial oils such as lemongrass, tea tree, lavender, and thyme.
Adding essential oils to water and spraying them throughout the house and on hard surfaces, is another way to “diffuse” oils. Our Room Refresher is full of anti-viral and anti-bacterial oils: lemon, thyme, and basil.
We make several balms for dry skin relief. These will be more effective than lotion for extremely dry skin. We have an organic, unrefined shea butter with no essential oils, a Cremesicle blend of shea butter with tonka bean and orange oils, and our Hand & Foot Balm. Our Hand & Foot Balm is an herbal infusion with essential oils of patchouli, geranium, and lavender for optimal skin health.
