All Organic Crown products are scented with essential oils. We do not use any artificial or chemical fragrances. Essential oils are extracted from flowers, trees, fruits, roots and leaves. It is the actual aroma which is extracted using a distiller. As the water is heated, the steam filters through the plant materials and these vapors condense into a liquid. This “liquid” is the essential oil which is actually non-oily despite its name.
Essential oils are balancing to the mind, emotions and various systems of the body. They help strengthen the body’s natural defenses and can even help fight off infection. Their unique scents and properties can help focus in on relieving particular skin ailments and work well on focusing in on face, hands and feet.
Please note that essential oils are powerful and should never be directly applied on the skin. Ours have been diluted by blending them in our lotions and therefore offer a safe application.
We offer a variety of pleasant healing scents and blends:
Lavender Citrus – this is a calming and delicate combination that is beneficial for relieving dry skin and enhancing the quality and smoothness of skin. It is the lightest of the three blends for those who prefer a light-medium scent. The citrus helps balance the strong, floral scent of lavender to give it a gentle and soothing balance. It may also be used as a face lotion for dry skin symptoms and these particular essential oils can brighten pale and dull complexions.
Mint Essence – very cooling and uplifting combination that helps relieve mental fatigue, depression and exhaustion. It is a medium scent that balances a blend of eucalyptus and lime for a synergistic effect. It may also be used as a foot lotion for dry and cracked feet. If applied daily, improvement should be noticeable within a week.
Sweet Blossom– a relaxing floral blend of essential oils with ylang ylang and just a hint of orange for a medium scent and a unique and healing combination. It is also therapeutic as a hand lotion for dry skin and cracked knuckles – perfect for gardening and kitchen work. It offers no oily residue and yet leaves an attractive sheen which lasts and moisturizes effectively.
