...Essential Oil Benefits...

What are Essential Oils?

"Essential oils are the fragrant, highly concentrated natural constituents that are found in plants. They are what give the plant its characteristic odour and contain the healing power of the plant from which it was extracted. When used correctly, essential oils bring a wide range of health benefits since unlike modern drugs, they have no side-effects.

 

A typical essential oil will contain more than 100 different chemical compounds, each of which exhibits a specific therapeutic property, and it is for this reason that many essential oils can be used for such a wide range of conditions. Virtually all essential oils possess antiseptic properties, but many also have antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties.

 

Essential oils are located in tiny secretory structures found in various parts of plants such as leaves, berries, grasses, flowering tops, petals, roots, zest of fruit, resins and wood."

Health Benefits of Essential Oils

"Essential oils possess a wide range of healing properties that can be used effectively to keep you in the best of health as well as looking good. These health-giving benefits include improving the complexion of your skin by stimulating cellular renewal, easing aches and pains, balancing roller-coaster emotions and fighting bacteria, fungi and other forms of infection. Essential oils have an almost endless list of therapeutic uses, and science continues to discover more about them every year."

Essential Oils and The Humble Soaper...

Why put synthetic, chemical fragrance into products that are otherwise all natural? That would just defeat the purpose! I am in love with essential oils in my products because of the complex and amazing layer of healing and repair that they bring to them.

A candle infused with Lavender essential oil can relax the mind, sooth away stress, and even ease a headache (and of course, it smells fantastic!). 

A bar of soap infused with the same Lavender essential oil can sooth muscle aches and pains, ward away acne and help with various skin irritations such as eczema. 

Most, if not all, essential oils possess physical and emotional healing properties that add a whole new dimension to the products that are infused with them. At The Humble Soaper, you'll find the essential healing imprint of Mother Nature in every bar and every candle!
