Essential oils and soap

We've created a line of liquid soaps for a variety of needs and skin types.


aromatherapy soapSome are just for fun, some care for your skin, and others use the anti- microbial nature of essential oils for serious cleaning.

We've also have two wonderful "unscented" liquid soap bases, along with extra bottles - so you can enjoy the creation of soaps for your own family and friends.

Making our own blends is truly easy to do...with only two bases to chose from, with clear functions for both, you only need add drops of essential oils to your bottle of soap, cap it and shake well!

With the variety of sizes, you can take some traveling,
or have enough to wash a horse :) ...Aromatherapy soap blending is a fun and valuable thing to do with your essential oils.

If you'd like to learn more about blending for yourself, also have a look at this excellent post on beginning aromatherapy soap blending in our Forums.

Yes, our blends are nice too, yet its also rewarding to know you're using your own creation just like you wanted it!
  Aromatherapy Soaps, Soap Bases and Bottles

With all those wonderful essential oils at your disposal, you'd be surprised at the soaps you can easily create. We've made a few formulas with scents you'll love, plus some with therapeutic skin care and cleanliness in mind. And with the bases and bottles, you can mix up anything you like!
Here's a few "ready-made" liquid aroma-therapy soaps with therapeutic grade essential oils.Click the names for details.

Making you own aromatherapy soaps and shampoos: First, choose your unscented liquid soap base. The organic Aloe Castile is an all purpose, get-yourself-clean soap. It doesn't include a thickener, (as the Hi-Olive does) so it's suitable for Aromatherapy Soap Basefoaming-style bottles, and really any washing use you want to put it to. The Hi-Olive is thicker, and more gentle, for sensitive skin of any age. You can use both as a shampoo -- if you'd like to make a bath "gel" with the Aloe Castile, just find a lite "guar gum" at the local health food store. (Though it almost sounds scary, "guar gum' is a dry powder ground from de-husked guar beans).

Or, if you don't want a "gel", but you do want a moisturizing soap, add a maybe 1ml per ounce a carrier oil to the soap base. Be sure in these cases to make a small bottle first and test it -- you'll be able to make the perfect smelling, moisturizing, therapeutic soap or shampoo for yourself.

Then choose your essential oils based on your cleaning intention and aromatic desires. Simply add anywhere between 30 and 60 drops of essential oil per 8 ounces of base, mix well and wash! You can create some very therapeutic formulas, with real skin-care in mind, just as if you were creating a skin-care oil blend. A little Rosehip, Sea Buckthorn and Chamomile essential oils in the Hi-Olive base, and you're treating your skin with exceptional healing qualities.

Need to keep germs at bay? Use our Super Immune or PuriFy essential oil blends with the Aloe Castile, and the foaming sink-side bottle (or travel-size foaming one too!). Or blend your own with the scents and properties you desire. Imagine Lemon Tea Tree and Blue Gum Eucalyptus scenting your home as you clean.

About Using Plastic Instead of Glass:

While you can dispense soaps from glass containers, there are several factors that make plastic the safer choice. The slipperiness of the soap itself, of soap plus water, and the exposed skin during a bath or shower. Just make sure you re-use them! You can make and keep "stock" soap, with your essential oils in it, in a large glass bottle of course, and just refill your dispensing bottle as needed.
