Patchouli oil...not just for hippies

Hello fellow river hippies!  We have recently added lotion bars and diffuser pendants to our website!  The lotion bars are scented with essential oils and the pendants are made with a clay so that you can add a drop of your favorite oil to enjoy all day!

As river hippies we're about all things natural!  We love our essential oils and use them as part of our daily routine--cleaning, personal care, aromatherapy...they are better for the environment and for our skin as opposed to using harsh chemicals!  We thought we would take this opportunity to start sharing with you some of our favorites!

  Have you ever wondered about the legit benefits of patchouli?  It's earthy, woodsy scent is usually  associated with hippies from the 60's and 70's, but according to Life Science Publishing's Essential Oils reference guide, patchouli has many therapeutic properties! "Relaxant, digestive aid that combats nausea, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, insecticidal, prevents wrinkles, chapped skin and relieves itching."  Wow!!  Patchouli is the main essential oil used in our "Sweet Mother Earth" lotion bars--it's great for the skin and we love the outdoorsy scent!  We only use high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils for ourselves and in our products.

Check back with us if you love essential oils, healthy info, recipes and all things river!!

If you leave a comment/like/share we'll put your name in a drawing for a free car diffuser!
