Essential oils and their effects
Essential oils are a widely used term under the term aromatherapy. This involves the use of essential oils to improve physical and mental health. Individual oils or mixtures thereof can be used specifically for various symptoms. The oils can be added to a diffuser, used as a bath additive or incorporated into creams.
Classic scents such as rose and lavender are obtained through steam distillation, where the essential oils are dissolved and extracted from the raw materials with the help of steam. Extractions can also be carried out using carriers such as oil and alcohols. Here the raw materials are stored in the carrier material and the scent is transferred over the course of the storage period. Another method for extracting essential oils is cold pressing. This process is used, for example, on oranges and lemons, as the peels of the oranges contain many essential oils.

Scents shape the way we see and experience the world. Our olfactory organ, the nose, only needs a few molecules to recognize a scent and is also extremely fast. Within a fifth of a second, images that match the smells are created in the head and corresponding emotions are triggered. This is also how aromatherapy works. Furthermore, some essential oils also have an antimicrobial effect and thus purify the air.
Due to the positive properties of essential oils and an intolerance to synthetic fragrances, we scent all of our products exclusively with essential oils. All of our products are tested for “sensitive skin” and are confirmed as “very good”.
