You may have heard the term “essential oils” before in connection with natural skin care. What’s all the fuss about this ingredient? How essential are they really?

Use of essential oils for both medicinal and beauty purposes can be traced all the way back to ancient Greece, where they were often used as a supplement to the beauty and health regimens of the rich. Luckily, these special oils are now available to the general public…or at least to those lucky enough to have caught on to their gentle yet effective uses in skin treatment and aromatherapy.

Highly concentrated extracts from plants and flowers, essential oils are distilled but otherwise left unaltered, making them potent and fragrant. Unlike artificially produced perfume oils, essential oils not only just smell great, but are also reputed to provide great benefits, including aromatherapy, relaxation of tired muscles, healing of acne, treatment of dandruff and protection of the skin’s natural barrier.

So where can you find these therapeutic oils? Snowy Owl Cove employs essential oils in many of its products, including its entire line of face soaps.

Snowy Owl Cove’s Indian Summer Face Bar, for example, includes essential oils to aid in the soothing of blemished skin and for moisture without a greasy residue. Don’t miss out on big power of this small ingredient!
