Do you love essential oils?
We LOVE essential oils and what they do for the human body. We have many customers who love our soaps because we use essential oils in them. We do use other natural oils too, but we have found essential oils do more than, as Grandma put it, “stink pretty”.
What we find so important and what we want people to realize is that bees are important for pollinating the flowers from which essential oils are extracted. Essential oils are used to help with everything from skin conditions to depression. Sometimes just the smell of essential oils will lift someone’s mood.
One of our favorite essential oils at The Honey Cottage is patchouli. We have heard quite a few times that if you lived through the 1970’s you either love or hate patchouli! We have seen more and more people have a piqued interest in this amazing essential oil and it is for good reason too; it is fantastic!
Essential oils have been long loved for their natural effectiveness. Many love the fact that they can use an essential oil for an ailment, see results naturally, and not need to take a pill with a long list of side effects.
Essential oils come from plants and flowers! They are a natural health resource that comes from Mother Nature herself. Essential oils are normally used topically and as a perfume. Many people are finding that breathing in these diluted aromatic oils works wonders on their mood. Patchouli is one such oil that can be used in these ways and be effective depending on its purpose.
Patchouli is part of the mint family and has a very earthy scent. Patchouli is quite often used for its calming effects, athlete’s foot, eczema, acne, anti-inflammation, dry skin issues, and depression. For some this essential oil greatly reduces what they are having issues with and without side effects.
When this amazing oil is combined with our handcrafted soap, you have a great combination for healthy skin. We use honey and beeswax in all our soap!! The honey and beeswax create a barrier that allows the essential oil to get into the skin and go to work. Honey and beeswax are also antibacterial and antimicrobial; that is why these ingredients are the best combination for fighting skin issues!!
Let honey kiss your skin and buzz on by for a bar today! You will bee buzzing with excitement just like us!
