Essential oils are a natural way to scented body care products. It is important to research any oil prior to use. Some oils may cause irritation to the skin and it is always best to use in a diluted form. Artificial fragrances are commonly used in many beauty products because of their cost. Oils from plants and certainly cost more then synthetic fragrances; but why use a chemical on your body when you can use a natural product that contains essential oils.
