Soap Fragrance Oils
don’t you consider making soaps scented with natural
essential oils in your own home? While it might seem difficult
at first, it just might turn out to be one of the easiest
and most relaxing things you’ve ever done. Essential
oils and herbs are a way to bring plants’ healing
properties into your daily routine. Frequently used in aromatherapy,
you can also bring essential oils into your life by making
your own soaps.
essential oils have stimulating fragrances, while others have
completely the opposite effect and can help you relax. Every
essential oil has distinct and unique properties. For example,

mental fatigue, rheumatic pains and aches, and respiratory
problems such as asthma.
Each of the natural essential oils has specific, beneficial
properties. Chamomile has long been used to help with
digestion, but many people don’t know that it helps
ease premenstrual pain as well, and applied to the skin, it
will help clear up acne, eczema and other sensitive skin problems.
Eucalyptus is administered orally to help coughs, colds,
bronchitis and viral infections; when applied to the skin,
it eases muscular aches. Many people find geranium oils
useful for healing sores, infections, and other skin problems.
And lavender not only smells pleasant; it can also be useful
for soothing headaches, healing bruises and insect bites,
and reducing swelling.
Sandalwood not only smells great; it’s calming
and soothing, and can help heal dry, cracked lips. Jasmine
helps you when you’re feeling down, and neroli treats
anxiety and insomnia, and will help improve your blood circulation
as well. It’s a good idea to try to find ways to bring
essential oils’ beneficial properties into your life.
Herbs are low-growing aromatic plants that can be
used either fresh or dried; these include annuals (which must
be seeded each year) as well as perennial herbs (which survive
the winter to grow again in the spring). Usually, it’s
herbs’ leaves that are used to enhance skin care products’
