This week, we launched our Sandalwood and Tea Tree Natural Deodorant in response to hundreds of requests from you for a 'less floral' scent. With the launch, we hope to appeal to a wider audience among your families and friends, and encourage more people to choose natural, sustainable products.
As we approach Fathers' Day on the 20th June 2021, here's a rundown of some of our less floral fragrances and a look at some of their wonderful properties.
Our new natural deodorant contains Sandalwood essential oil. It is made from the wood and roots of the Sandalwood tree, which is one of the most valued trees in the world! Apart from being a classic scent for centuries, the use of this precious product goes beyond the fragrance.
In Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicines, Sandalwood is used to treat a variety of mental and physical disorders such as anxiety, the common cold and liver and urinary tract problems.
Tea Tree is native to Australia and has been used by Aborigines for centuries to treat coughs and colds or is applied directly to the skin to aid healing. The oil contains a number of active compounds, including terpinen-4-ol, that have been proven to eradicate specific types of bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Studies reveal that Terpinen-4-ol also appears to increase white blood cell activity, which in turn helps to eradicate microbes.
This wonderful essential oil is present in both of our natural deodorant products.
This is a nutty triglycerid which is a natural anti-inflammatory. It's nutrients and minerals are known to contribute to better skin and heart health. We pair this wonderful oil in our Hemp and Patchouli soaps, hand creams and gifts.
This beautiful and traditional essential oil is both sweet and also spicy. It emits a characteristic, natural musk when applied to the skin. It has been used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes, and skin imperfections. This beautiful scent is in several of our products including our shaving soap, face cream and gifts.
Harvested from a tall, perennial grass in a class with around 45 other species of grasses native to the tropical climates of Asia, Australia and Africa. It is known for its antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. We use it in our Lemongrass Shampoo Bar to help balance oil production and because it smells so fresh! It's also present, alongside patchouli essential oil in our original shaving soap.
We love it here at Cosy Cottage Soap.
