The 411 on Essential Oils

Updated: Feb 23, 2020

I know that sometimes finding the right information can be hard. With so much knowledge available at our fingertips, it can be difficult to figure out which sources are reliable or not! Well, you have come to the right place. I’m here to give you the scoop on those mysterious essential oils that so many people have been talking about.

So… what exactly IS an essential oil?

Essential oils are a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and have the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted. They also have amazing benefits. Thanks Mother Nature!

There are thousands of different essential oils out there. The key is finding the right ones for you. I know this may seem daunting, but trust me, it’s easier than you would think.

Many essential oils have multiple benefits, so you don’t have to search far and wide for tons of products. For example, lavender essential oil is a natural sleep aide, reduces stress and anxiety, and relieves headaches. Since it is such a superstar, Lavender is found in a number of our products, including Lovely Lavender Aromatherapy Spray, Lavender Soak, Las Vegas Lavender Body Oil, Voodoo Ink Oil, Chill Out Body Oil, Sun Kissed Body Oil, Clarity Body Oil, Luscious Facial Oil, and Relaxing Soak.

Tangerine essential oil is another powerful healer found in a number of Zeeta products. It is known for its acne-fighting and scar healing properties. For this reason, it is a key ingredient in our Balancing Act Facial Serum for combination skin. This citrusy essential oil is also found in our Tangerine Margarita (salty) and Temptation (sweet) scrubs as well!

Given the versatility of essential oils, it's not hard to believe how many products act for a number of special purposes. Brain Boost Spray contains stimulative essential oils eucalyptus and rosemary and can be sprayed to wake up a room, as a natural perfume, on a yoga mat after practice, and even as a facial toner. Exhilarating Eucalyptus Body Oil not only naturally moisturizes the skin, but can also aide sore muscles and naturally relieve sinus congestion. All of our body scrubs are a 2-in-1 exfoliant and moisturizer and can be used instead of soap to cleanse the body. Our Poppin' Body Scrub has the added benefit of relieving headaches due the calmative properties of Peppermint essential oil.

Who knew essential oils could be so cool? Swapping out our face and body products with a skin care product manufacturer that uses only sustainable ingredients is not only good for the planet, but they are also good for our bodies! Of course, all of our products are vegan, cruelty free, organic, soy- GMO free, and they are all made right here in the USA. Try using essential oils in your life and see how they could benefit you!
