How are the aromatherapy oils different from the perfumes?
We formulate our aromatherapy blends to affect mood and emotions (although, they smell good enough to be perfumes!). They contain fewer individual essential oils than the perfumes: approximately 4-5 per blend, as opposed to 15-20 ingredients in the perfumes. The aromatherapy blends are also lighter because they contain a lower percentage of essential oil (only 3-5%), unlike the perfumes, which are comprised of up to 30% essential oils and extracts. Expect the aromatherapy blends to last approximately 30-60 minutes on the skin, and enjoy re-application throughout the day or as needed.
I'm pregnant/nursing. Can I use the aromatherapy oils?
In general, we don't recommend essential oil application for pregnant or nursing mothers. We blend safely according to medical journals and evidence-based guidelines, and avoid oils that other texts call out as questionable even though that information is sometimes taken out of context. That said, Balance contains patchouli, which is not recommended for nursing mamas. Please consult with your physician before using essential oils while pregnant or nursing.
Are your aromatherapy blends organic?
We use organic ingredients whenever possible. Our golden jojoba carrier is organic, and this makes up approximately 95% of the product. If an organic essential oil is out of stock, cost prohibitive or inferior in scent quality, we'll reach for a wildcrafted alternative. Very few oils and extracts in our current collection are grown conventionally. All ingredients are sustainably sourced. Please email us for specifics at firstname.lastname@example.org.
