what you put on your body goes into your body. it is so important to choose products with ingredients that are safe and effective. our shower gels are all 100% natural. they are specially formulated with no sulfates, artificial dyes or parabens. why do we do this? some parabens are estrogenic, meaning they mimic the function of natural occurring estrogen, which can be harmful to your health. sulfates and artificial dyes can cause skin reactions and sensitivity. we use aromatherapy oils to enhance your experience instead of synthetic fragrances that can be irritating to your skin. the balance shower gel is a mild cleanser formulated with our trademark balance blend of therapeutic essential oils. we created this blend to help ground you (it is also available in a pure, essential oil blend that is great for diffusing). we included patchouli essential oil to soothe the mind and awaken the senses. this oil is extracted from the leaves of the patchouli plant and has a sweet and musky scent. next we add geranium oil to balance and brighten your mood. this oil, extracted from the geranium plant, has an intoxicating floral aroma. we suggest using as a part of your daily self care routine. self care gives you an armor to take on whatever life throws at you, so finding time in your day to focus on yourself is so essential.
