Why Fragrance From Natural Essential Oils Is Best

Have you ever noticed how a particular scent can instantly bring back memories, transporting your mind back to another moment in time? That's what happens for us with the scents we've chosen for our shampoo and conditioner bars. They are all reminiscent of the time we spent with the Red Yao tribe in the mountains of Longsheng.

Scents are powerful things. They can soothe us, relax us, energize us, remind us of pleasant times, or even irritate us. We are sensitive to smells, and it's no wonder we love to have pleasant scents as part of our hair care routines. Is there anything better than being surrounded by your favorite scent as you relax in a nice steamy shower? We're feeling the bliss already. 

But the origin of the fragrances you use matters more than you realize. In fact, chemicals used to create fragrances are the leading cause of allergies to cosmetics, and they don't just affect the person using the product--they can harm people around the person, too! 

And the harmful effects of chemical fragrances don't stop at allergies. They can cause headaches, nausea, and loss of coordination. They may irritate your eyes, nose, and throat. In some people, they trigger asthma attacks or exacerbate sinus problems. And many are made with phthalates, which are linked to a whole host of health issues

Fortunately, you don't have to give up fragrances altogether. Natural essential oils offer a better way to scent products. They aren't made with harmful chemicals, and many are even beneficial. Here's why fragrance from natural essential oils is best. 

Heal Your Scalp

Many essential oils are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, so if your scalp is irritated from other products, they may help you heal and stave off infections. And they reduce dandruff, too. Lavender, cedarwood, sandalwood, and tea tree oils are good choices if you need to improve your scalp's health. 

You can find both sandalwood and cedarwood essential oils in our Hidden Waterfall bars. They lend Hidden Waterfall its musky, sweet, vanilla scent. You'll feel like you're wandering the forested paths that lead to the hidden waterfalls of Longsheng, and your scalp will feel just as hydrated. 

Achieve Balance

Whether your scalp is oily or dry, essential oils can help bring it back into balance. Citrus oils like those in our Citrus Yao bar remove excess sebum from your scalp without drying it. Close your eyes, and the scent will make you think you're standing beside a Longsheng fruit stand on a warm summer day. 

If your scalp is too dry, ylang-ylang stimulates sebum production to help your hair stay hydrated. You'll find it in our Terrace Garden bars, which have a refreshing green, floral scent reminiscent of the bamboo trails that wind through the Longsheng mountains.

Increase Growth And Reduce Loss

Essential oils like cedarwood, rosemary, peppermint, and lavender all increase growth. A mixture of essential oils, including cedarwood, was even shown to be an effective treatment for alopecia areata in this study. Pretty awesome, right?

These are just a few of the benefits essential oils provide. We always choose natural, effective ingredients for our products, including our fragrances. Next time you're shopping, consider skipping the harmful chemicals and choosing fragrances made with essential oils instead. You'll get all the satisfaction of an amazing scent and some extra benefits, too!
