Why We Use Essential Oils Instead of Fragrance Oils

Guests on Earth Essential oil blends

As a Home and Planetary Wellness company, we create products that help to create wellness experiences in your home. Sensory products engage us across sight (beauty, counter-worthy design, calming colourways), touch (matte, soft touch Reusable Vessels, soft Waffle Cleaning Cloths), and smell (our essential oil blends, featuring aromatherapy properties), and contribute to an overall wellness moment in your day. Not to mention, cleaning itself is good for our mental health.

In this blog post, we'll explore the numerous benefits of using essential oils in our product line, and why this choice aligns perfectly with our Home and Planetary wWellness-focused philosophy.

Aromatherapeutic Benefits

Essential oils are known for their aromatherapeutic properties. Each oil has a unique scent profile and potential therapeutic benefits. Lavender, for example, is calming and soothing, while citrus oils like lemon and orange can uplift your mood. By incorporating these oils into your cleaning routine, you can turn a mundane task into a sensory experience that promotes relaxation and mental well-being.

Natural vs. Artificial

One of the most significant advantages of using essential oils is their natural and pure origin. These oils are extracted from various parts of plants, such as leaves, flowers, and roots, through methods like steam distillation or cold pressing. As a result, they retain the true essence of the plant, delivering a pure and unadulterated aroma to your home.

Fragrance oils, on the other hand, may contain synthetic chemicals, including phthalates, which have been linked to health concerns. Essential oils are free from these potentially harmful substances, making them a safer choice for your health and well-being.

Antimicrobial Properties

Essential oils are known for their natural antimicrobial properties, which make them valuable for various purposes, including cleaning. This all depends on the concentration, of course, which can help to make products even more effective. 


The concentration of our essentail oils actually adds to the texture of our products themselves, namely our Foaming Hand Soap, contributing it its smooth hand feel.
