Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) Organic Essential Oil

By Ann C Wooledge
on July 05, 2013

Lime (Citrus aurantifolia) Organic Essential Oil

This essential oil truly is one of my favorites. There is nothing quite so refreshing, happy and uplifting as the scent of a fresh cut lime - which is what this essential oil smells like. It is cold-pressed from the rind so of course it smells just like that. The rind is where pesticides collect, so we are very picky about offering only organically grown citrus essential oils. There are many uses for this oil and lots of research that verifies the properties we've mentioned above. We don't advocate constant and frequent use of the internal intake of citrus oils, but in moderation and properly emulsified with something like honey, they do taste good and have some benefit. All citrus oils are, however, solvents - which is why you see the lemon and orange cleaners in the grocery store aisles. I love to blend orange, lemon, lime and pink grapefruit essential oils and use them in all of my cleaning products. See our blog about pink grapefruit here, much of which also applies to lime because it is also high in d-limonene.  

See the information about safety and cautions as this oil does have phototoxic properties. We also carry steam distilled lime essential oil which is NOT phototoxic and has more of the essence of a lime lollipop. It has unique but somewhat different properties than the cold-pressed. We use the cold-pressed in our Fresh Lime Soap and our Bergamot & Lime bath and body products. We are careful with the concentration of our essential oils in these products and have done our homework to make them safe. With a wash-off product, there is little to no concern, but with the cream, we do suggest you not put it on and then go out into the direct sunlight or a sunbed for at least 12 to 24 hours.

Handcrafted Pecan Pie Latte Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 25, 2012

The Classic Kitchen Coffee Soap Plus!

We have quite a few customers who use our soap because it does clean nicely, but doesn't strip those precious oils from your skin. This new addition to our soaps is even better at that because it has real coffee grounds for additional deodorizing and grease cutting. And if you like the smell of pecan pie and coffee - you will love this one.

Organic Fresh Lemon Zest Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 18, 2012

Handcrafted REAL organic soap

Handcrafted using fresh organic lemon zest and fresh organic cold-pressed lemon (Citrus limonum) essential oil. Lemon essential oil has well-researched immune-enhancing properties and the organic fresh lemon zest adds gentle exfoliating properties. Made the old-fashioned way that uses only natural and organic ingredients that naturally retains glycerin. Don't be fooled by those triple-milled, high dollar soaps that are a mix of synthetic ingredients. Take time to read your labels - your skin will thank you. We use ONLY certified organic shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil - all very skin healthy, nurturing, hydrating. We use only organic botanicals rather than chemical dyes, which also add beneficial antioxidant properties to each and every bar.

Aromatherapy Classic Ultrasonic Diffuser

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 05, 2012

The best ultrasonic diffuser available

These are so perfect for kids' rooms, clinic settings and nursing homes. Use in bedroom for more productive sleep. Day Care Centers - perfect way to keep bacteria under control. Available in either black, white or silver - choose color below. If you don't have a preference use "default".

You will want one in every room of your house! Small enough to not take up a lot of counter space, but powerful enough to diffuse a medium sized room.  No glass or tubes to clean. Safe to use in children's room or around elderly.  Diffuse your favorite essential oil blends easily, safely and quietly. Convenient night light that can be turned on and off depending on your preference. The grandkids love the light, but my husband hates it. He was using duct tape to cover the light until the manufacturer started making these with an on/off switch for the night light!

Organic Pink Grapefruit and Tangerine Shea Butter Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 05, 2012

Handmade soap using pure organic essential oils

As are all of our soaps, this one is made in small fresh batches - especially important when working with citrus essential oils. We use only  fresh cold-pressed and organic citrus essential oils because although they are quite powerful in many ways with a long list of health benefits - see our blog - they are also prone to oxidation, which renders them not only NOT beneficial but potentially harmful. You will enjoy the refreshing, uplifting and immune-enhancing properties of this particular bar of soap.

Handcrafted Ocean Mist Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on September 27, 2012

I'm not good at describing fragrances, but this is how the supplier describes the original scent - "seductive, daring, rugged and robust muguet (lily-of-the-valley) but it also has the coolness, purity of the sea." And added to that it is "balanced with sandalwood and oak moss" and "deepened with spice notes of cloves and nutmeg." Whew - I don't know that I can smell all of that, but it is a very subtle, clean, fresh scent and I think it will be a keeper.

Organic Balsam Fir Soap

By Ann C Wooledge
on September 20, 2012

True balsam fir essential oil in a soap

We spent a week (well almost and our first vacation in 7years - check it out on our Facebook page) at a lake in Minnesota this September (2012) and there were fir trees all around our deck that overlooked the lake. I experienced the most amazing calm and peacefulness and I could not stop smelling the air! I attributed it at first to the beautiful view of the lake and then remembered my research into the essential oil that exudes from these trees. Interestingly enough, I was also reading Kurt Schnaubelt's new book, The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils, at the same time where he discusses some studies done on loggers. So - I knew then that I had to make a soap using fir needle. I ended up working with two different types of fir needle and I added some certified organic Scotch Pine and Himalayan Cedarwood to round out the scent. It really did turn out every bit as good as I had hoped! I really think you will like this one.
