Sally Cates in the WildWhat is an essential oil?

Essential oils are the actual extracts of the plant. They can be obtained through steam distillation, CO2 extraction, cold pressing, and hydro-diffusion. However, not every plant produces and essential oil! There is no strawberry, cucumber, melon, or coconut essential oils. If you have a product that claims to smell like these, it is using synthetic chemical fragrance oils...NOT NATURAL! Furthermore, not all essential oils are created equal. There are cheap adulterated essential oils, and then there are therapeutic grade essential oils. We use only the purest therapeutic grade essential oils available!

Here is a link to a comprehensive article outlining the differences of essential oils vs. fragrance oils:
Essential Versus Fragrance Oils. Part 2: The Hazard of Scents

With that knowledge now in hand, why would anyone ever use a product containing a fragrance oil? As the largest organ of the body, your skin absorbs everything that is put on it...what goes on your body, goes in your body! So keep your bath and body products as pure as is humanly possible. This is why we give you the best of what nature has to offer!
So, experience skincare as nature intended...water will never be the same!
