Soaps With Essential Oils

 

Soaps Scented With Essential Oils

& More About Essential Oils and Sources (below)

Essential oils are obtained from the part of the plant that possesses the fragrance of the plant or flower in concentrated form. Essential oil is usually obtained by steam distillation, whereas 'flower oils' are generally extracted by using fats (a process called "enfleurage"). Essential oils do not contain alcohol or other solvents, or other added fragrances, extracts, or essences.

For current availability, check our full alphabetized list of soaps.

The following soaps are scented with pure essential or natural oils only:

Cinnamon Essential oil of cinnamon leaf, from Ceylon. Cinnamomum zeylanicum. Note: This oil naturally colors the soap reddish-brown. Please also note that cinnamon can irritate sensitive skin; so, while the actual amount of this oil in an individual bar of soap is modest, "caveat emptor."

NEW, Fall 2018. Our blend of five essential oils that are considered to help awaken and invigorate the senses: Juniper Berry EO (Juniperus communis, from India); Cypress EO (Cupressus sempervirens, from Spain); expressed Lemon EO (Citrus limon, USA); Sweet Orange EO (Citrus sinensis, USA); and steam-distilled Clove bud EO (Eugenia caryophyllata, from Indonesia).
The result is a refreshing and uplifting scent to help clear the mind and enhance one's energy and sense of well-being in the morning and through the day.
Made with our goat's milk, organic coconut oil and sustainably sourced, environmentally responsible organic palm oil.

This is a surprisingly pleasant combination we think you'll enjoy - we welcome your feedback if you try it!

Liberty's website contains a wealth of information about essential oils and their essential oil sources, and we highly recommend it.

A compendium of information, ranging from basic beauty aids and formulas, use of essential oils in cooking and around the home, to medicinal associated uses of essential oils, addressing many specific physical conditions and circumstances. One of the contemporary "bibles" of essential oils.

Aromatherapy: Scent and Psyche (Using Essential Oils for Physical and Emotional Well-Being) by Peter & Kate Damian. Published by Healing Arts Press. Rochester, Vermont: 1995.
A very well researched and documented in-depth discussion of the origins, history, and practices of using essential oils for aromatherapy.
