Essential Oils

Essential oils are all natural, plant based oils, known for their many therapeutic benefits. 

At Soapinessence, we only use 100% pure, therapeutic grade, organic essential oils in our products.

Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation (often by using steam).  They are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils or just as the "oil of the plant" from which they were extracted.
