Makes Scents for You - LavenderDeveloping new products is part of what we do, and it’s fun. We had been selling pure essential oil in a roll on for a while. It was good. But, then we became aware that straight essential oil on the skin is drying. Not so good. Enter Jojoba Oil.

Jojoba oil has some amazing properties and it is really more of a wax than an oil – but it’s liquid at room temperature. It nourishes all skin types, especially mature skin, and it penetrates readily. It is not greasy. In the 1970’s whale oil was finally banned for use in perfume products, and Jojoba has become it’s replacement. It carries scent very well.

In addition to nourishing skin and carrying the scent of essential oils well, Native Americans used Jojoba to treat sores and wounds. The beneficial qualities of this oil are huge.

With all those amazing qualities, how could we not formulate our new perfume with that as a base? So, we added a blend of our own lavender essential oils. Our first fragrance in this new line is pure lavender and we call it:

Makes Scents for You: Blended for Relaxing
