“Some relationships benefit from therapy. All benefit from aromatherapy. . .”
That tag line is from our very first collection created back in 2006 – C&M Couples, a cohesive set of natural, aromatherapy-based bath and body products designed to captivate a couple's connectedness. And if you’ve seen our video, then you know what we’re talking about!
While products from the C&M Couples collection are no longer available for purchase, it set the stage for Action Wipes and the other products we would go on to create.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. And just like honey, its natural powers to soothe and heal ailments have been used for centuries.
Having been raised with natural remedies and trained as an aromatherapist by the famous Jeannie Rose, Martha loves to mix and create essential oil blends that work as nature intended.
In the next series of blogs, we’ll introduce you to the various essential oils used in our products. Today, we start with one of our very favorites – Tea Tree (Melaleuca).
We love Tea Tree due to its natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. What do we mean by “natural properties”? We mean that the oil, which is expressed from the leaves of the plant is 100% pure, there are no synthetic or pharmaceutical additives to fight bacteria or fungus.
Tea Tree has a very Camphoraceous top note, or scent, which can be overpowering to some folks; that’s why we mix it with other essential oils that have their own benefits while calming the scent and enhancing bacteria and fungus fighting properties.
Tea Tree oil is wonderful for topical fungal infections. You can use it to fight ring worm, athletes foot, yeast infections, dandruff, acne and more. It’s also a great first aid tool when it comes to fighting bacteria in minor wounds, road rash and bug bites.
You can find Tea Tree in our Cleanse Collection – Action Wipes, Naturally Clean Face and Body Wash, Naturally Clean Soap and our famous Healing Honey Stick.
