Evan writes on the important difference between essential oils and aromatic isolates
Essential Oils vs Aromatic Isolates in Natural Skin Care Our newest addition of Body Treatments for your gorgeous skin - our handmade Sweet Blossom Moisturizing Body Lotion - includes precious droplets of certified organic Ylang Ylang essential oil. Our Ylang Ylang comes from Madagascar and the name means 'flower of flowers'. Ylang ylang known for its beauty, and its sweet, deeply relaxing fragrance. We believe in the 'whole' part of 'holistic healing'. An essential oil (the essence of the plant) is created by the plant from the environmental elements that surround it: sunlight, air, soil/ tilth/terrior and water. An essential oil is a combination of as many as hundreds of very unique, very complex aroma molecules and gives each plant its specific therapeutic attributes.... and is the reason AROMATHERAPY is so valued in the first place! When creating our products we opt for this valuable complexity of whole plant wisdom by using the complete essential oil, not just parts of it, as in an isolated aromatic molecule. There's nothing natural or holistic about extracted isolates. It's become very common for skincare companies to opt for the one dimensional isolate: geraniol, limonene, linalool, citronellol...etc. But isolates create a standardized, flat, one dimensional fragrance. The scent will always smell the same, day in and day out, across seasons, year in and year out. It will never have the amazing biodiversity or complexity that exists naturally in the whole essential oil. A fragrance created from isolated aroma molecules will never have the soothing, lovely evolution on the skin inherent in an essential oil....And finally, because the aroma molecule has to be solvent or heat extracted from the whole essential oil, an aromatic isolate will never be able to offer the uplifting emotional effects, an elevating spiritual centering or the therapeutic physical benefits inherent in whole essential oils. So, we think Mother Nature got it right the first time. An aromatic isolate is not aromatherapy.

Evan has released her Sweet Blossom Moisturizing Body Lotion featuring precious and exotic essential oils of Neroli, Petitgrain, Ylang Ylang & Frankincense.
You'll be intoxicated by the precious and exotic essential oils in our NEW Sweet Blossom Moisturizing Body Lotion: Ylang Ylang means ‘Flower of Flowers’ – a voluptuous, intoxicating scent that releases tension held in the tight muscles of the upper body. Sacred Frankincense (Boswellia sacra), an ancient oil with a meditative fragrance, is known for its ability to nourish the skin and quiet the emotions. Petitgrain Bigarade, from the leaf and twigs of the bitter orange tree, has a fresh, fruity-leafy bouquet with a woody-floral undertone, and is deeply relaxing to mind and body. Neroli essential oil – from the flowers of the bitter orange tree – adds a soft, sweet floral note with a delicate balsamic under tone. Together they uplift the spirit, and tone and invigorate the skin.
