Why Do we use Essential Oils Only....

Posted

We are often asked if we use Fragrance Oils such as Coconut Lime, Vanilla Brown Sugar, or Raspberry. Sometimes people are put off when we answer "N0".

Here's a few very good reasons why we do not use Fragrance Oils and will continue to ONLY use Essential Oils:

"One artificial fragrance can contain hundreds of synthetic chemicals primarily made from petroleum and coal. Companies are not required to tell you what these chemicals are. Synthetic fragrances are cheaper than natural essential oils and scents. Fragrances are considered to be one of the top 5 known allergens and are known to cause asthma and trigger asthma attacks. Of the more than 5,000 ingredients used in the fragrance industry, approximately 1,300 have so far been evaluated. So far testing has been minimal and restricted to local effects on human skin, and short-term toxicity tests in rodents. Fragrances are a major concern for hormone and reproductive dysfunction, cancer, headaches, dizziness, skin disorders, asthma and other allergies. "

If you still want that Chocolate Raspberry stuff, I hear there's a store in the mall that carries it.
