Grapefruit Peel
Grapefruit helps suppress your appetite, while also providing antimicrobial and antibacterial effects (1,2). It has a warm, sweet, fresh citrus uplifting scent. It's not in your head, you actually feel happier when using this lip balm.

Lavender
A popular scent in many skincare products, however, we use this because your body benefits from lavender oil by accelerating healing time compared to your body's ability alone (3).  Not to mention the calming and soothing abilities as well. It has a fresh, floral, light, herbaceous, sweet smell. We've had customers report that our Vanilla Lavender Body Oil has helped with their dry sensitive skin.

Lemon
Lemon boasts a light, clean, sweet, fresh, and sugary scent. Studies have shown that Lemon improves your mood through the olfactory senses (4). It's a real thing!

Lemongrass
This fresh, grassy, citrus, herbaceous, smoky scent has some amazing properties. It's naturally high amounts of geranial and neral have shown to help with anti-inflammatory effects as well as antifungal and antimicrobial benefits (5). Try our Lemongrass Body Butter to help ease joint pain.

Lime
A sharp-fruity, citrus, sweet, almost candy-like scent, the Coconut Lime Lip Balm is a customer fave! But it is due to Lime's high limonene content that allows it to be high in antioxidants (6). Antioxidants help remove free radicals that damage cells.


Orange Peel
A sweet, tangy, perky, and lively scent. One study suggests that it helped with acne (7). We added this to our clay mask which draws out toxins and exfoliates to remove build-up from dead skin cells. 

Oregano
This strong herbaceous, earthy scent helps with the long shelf-life of our Lemongrass Body Butters, with its superb antimicrobial properties (8).
 
Patchouli
A heavy, earthy, musty, musky, smoky scent, but pairs so beautifully in our cleansing oil along with Ylang Ylang and Tea Tree. Patchouli oil helps with so many skin conditions such as dermatitis, acne, and dry skin (9).

Peppermint
This minty, fresh, grassy, cool, candy scent is a must-have for many ailments, including soothing stomach issues, IBS, nausea, heartburn (10). We even found one study that improved exercise (11). We're not sure if you'll receive any of these awesome properties when applying our Cocoa Mint Lip Balms, but your lips will feel tingly fresh at least!

Tangerine Rind
This wonderful oil is known for its antiseptic properties which help with skin impurities and aids in restoring damaged tissue in the skin (12). It's used in our Orange Tangerine Lip Balms and they taste heavenly!

Tea Tree
Tea Tree Oil has gained popularity in its topical antiseptic properties which studies have shown that it can help reduce acne lesions and the severity of acne (13). It's used in our oil cleanser to help keep those pores clean and free of bacteria that eventually turns to blemishes.

Thyme
Another strong herbaceous, earthy scent that aids in a longer shelf-life for our body butter due to it's amazing antimicrobial properties (8).

Ylang Ylang

Ylang Ylang is intensely sweet, soft, spicy, and floral. It is known to help reduce stress and anxiety levels (14). It helps balance and regulates oil production which is why we've chosen it for our oil cleanser.
