Aromatherapy is described as the use of volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for emotional and physical well being.
At Pacific Northwest Bath, we are big on aromatherapy. As a matter of fact, one of our big things is, “You cannot have aromatherapy without aroma.”
We find that too many companies are not putting natural plant oils in their soaps and bath products and are touting them as being good for aromatherapy. We furthermore see all the time that these other companies either use synthetic fragrances or very little fragrance in their products.
I, for one, hate picking up a soap that is billed as a certain fragrance only to find that there is almost no fragrance or that the fragrance is not what it should be because it does not come from the source that it is supposed to come from. Of course you also have companies that will make up cutesy names for their fragrances so that you have no idea what is in it or what it is supposed to be.
That is why all of our products show exactly what is in them. We make up no names, what you see on the label is what you get in the product. And we use all natural plant essences and essential oils in our products.
In order to have any aromatherapeutic effect, the fragrance must come from the actual plant. That is why all of the fragrances we use are either from essential oils or plant essences.
Over the next several weeks, we will explore some of the advantages that can be derived from these essential oils or essences.
Please keep watching our blogs to learn more. I would also like to hear your opinion and what essentials you use.
Productivity April 14, 2013 · by Pacific Northwest Bath Usually on a Sunday afternoon you can find me either shopping or just lounging around looking at the internet with nothing specific in mind.
Today I tried something completely different. I wrested control of the computer from Hubby (most would know him as Mike) and went to work myself editing and listing items in my Etsy shop.
I made great progress. We now are up to 30 items in the Etsy shop, and all of the types of soaps we currently have in stock are now featured.
I know that everybody has their favorite type of soap and now everybody can find their favorite on Etsy if we currently have it available. Before, I had a few good customers that had to request their favorite because it was not available.
This is something that I definitely am working on and will endeavor to fix. Next comes the Weebly website and the Store Envy shop.
Maybe Sundays should be filled with less shopping and more working from now on.
Pacific Northwest Bath’s Beeswax and Honey Soap
This week here in Western Washington has been beautiful, and today is no exception. There is barely a cloud in the sky and it is close to 70 degrees out.
Michael and I took the opportunity to take a drive up to the Skagit Valley to check out the tulip fields. We had heard the tulips were blooming, but not so much. Actually, the daffodil fields were quite lovely. The daffodils were in full bloom in the roadside fields. The tulips could be seen just starting to open.
We did go into the garden at RoozenGarde. The gardens were beautiful.
On April first the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival starts. I do recommend taking the time to go if you are in the area.
