Why Essential Oils?

Here at Mindful Soap, you’ll notice we focus ALOT on essential oils. We pride ourselves in using essential oils vs. artificial fragrances in our products. At this point, you may be wondering, “What’s the difference? Why essential oils?” We're glad you asked...

The uses for essential oils (both for health and emotions) are numerous and diverse. Plants have many beautiful qualities, but the essential oils that are extracted from the leaves, flowers, stems, roots, or bark are amazing tools for us to use in our everyday lives.

Essential oils carry the essence of the plants in such a potent form that a single drop of essential oil can equal multiple teaspoons of the dried herb (for instance, 1 drop of peppermint oil equals more than 25 cups of peppermint tea and oils can be up to 70x more potent than in their dried herbal form). Essential oils can be used or applied in a number of ways and combinations to bring powerful results to your mind, body, and overall health.

All essential oils are made up of various chemical constituents whose research is continually growing, especially in recent years. They often also transfer very pleasurable sensory experiences within minutes because of their fragrances, making them impactful on our brain chemistry and emotional well-being. This makes for a long and diverse list of uses for essential oils.

But the remarkable uses of essential oils can only be maximized when purity is involved. Since quality regulations are virtually non-existent, knowing where your oils come from and how they are created is crucial to ensuring their safety and effectiveness. You can be sure that the Mindful Soap Company will always source its essential oils from the finest, most reputable companies in the industry. We only use high quality, pure and undiluted essential oils. Always have, always will.
