What Are Essential Oils?
Have you ever enjoyed the scent of a fragrant flower or herb? The fragrance comes from potent, aromatic compounds called essential oils.
These natural compounds are found in the flowers, stems, seeds, bark, roots, fruits and other parts of plants.
Essential oils not only give plants their unique scents, they also help lure plant pollinators and protect plants from insects and other predators.
The chemical composition of essential oils can provide valuable psychological and physical aromatherapeutic benefits.
It is important to note that to be a true essential oil, the oil must be isolated from the plant material by physical means only. Essential oils are NEVER extracted using solvents.
Although synthetic fragrances or "nature identical" oils are available at a much lower cost, only natural plant essential oils to will provide the botanical benefits.
If you are pregnant or under a doctor's care for any medical condition, please consult your healthcare provider before using essential oils.
What Are Essential Oils? (Much more detail)
Go to our Blog Pages and click "Essential Oils" in the category section on the left to read a lot more information on essential oils.
We often receive questions as to whether our soaps, shampoos, and other natural products are safe to use during pregnancy.
We recommend that expectant and nursing mothers check with their midwife or physician before changing a skincare routine with our products, or any other line of products.
Read the label on a bar of commercial soap. Read the label on your jar of moisturizer.
Now read the ingredients in a Chagrin Valley product.
We use quality natural and USDA Certified Organic ingredients. No synthetic additives, colorants, fragrances, preservatives, or chemical derivatives are used.
There is nothing in our all-natural basic soap or other products that could cause a problem in pregnancy.
Topically applying the herbs present in many of our soaps, is also not a problem. Your skin will absorb much less herb from the soap than if you would sprinkle them on your food.
The issue that seems to be of most concern is the use of essential oils during pregnancy.
There is an awful lot of confusion and inaccurate information concerning the use of essential oils in pregnancy.
The question of safety and safety testing has a lot to do with several factors.
The type and composition of the specific essential oil. Essential oils differ greatly in strength and composition.
The quality of the essential oil. Many "cheap essential oils" are not pure and maybe cut with synthetic chemicals.
The actual “dose” of herb/essential oils. Most of the clinical research on essential oil safety is based on information for internal (actually ingesting) large doses of herbs, essential oils, or herbal "medicines." Obviously there have been no tests done on pregnant women.
How the essential oil is being used. The concentration of essential oils that are absorbed through inhalation, as in aromatherapy, and massage is much lower than if you were actually ingesting the oil.
Also, aromatherapy and massage therapy use much higher concentrations of essential oils than you find in soap or even in eating the herb. With aromatherapy, you are inhaling the high concentrations which get absorbed via the lungs and in the massage therapy, the essential oils remain on your skin and are absorbed.
Our scented soaps are gently scented with essential oils, but the choice is between you and your health care professional. The most critical time is the first trimester.
Soap does not remain on your skin very long and the percentage of essential oils used in our products is low. Remember we sell many soaps that have no added scent.
Just about every one of our products, like lip balms, whipped butters and deodorants has a "no added scent" version.
When there is a growing baby to consider, if you are at all uncertain as to the safety of an essential-oil containing product, or any ingredient, please consult your doctor, midwife, or health care professional!
When it comes to safety during pregnancy it is understandable that many massage therapists and aromatherapists decide to err on the side of caution in recommending the avoidance of certain essential oils.
Some Herbalists and Aromatherapist believe that essential oils that are normally safe to use, are safe during pregnancy, while others will recommend avoiding all essential oils during pregnancy.
Some essential oils that are normally quite safe have hormone-like effects and some even stimulate uterine muscles, both of which would be contraindicated during pregnancy.
Please do not ask us if one of our products is safe to use during pregnancy--we will simply refer you to this page.
We do not provide a list of essential oils considered safe during pregnancy because the information available is very contradictory. One aromatherapy source will list an essential oil as problematic and another states it is fine and the information is changing constantly. Please do your own research and consult your doctor, midwife or health care professional for the most up-to-date information.
Sensitive Skin Can Strike During Pregnancy
Even if you have never had sensitive skin in the past, you may notice that a product you have been using for several years now irritates your skin.
The stretching belly is often the most sensitive spot. Other potential problem areas include the hips, thighs and bottom where the skin may become dry and flaky.
Although the exact cause is not known, raging hormones do make you more sensitive to a wide range of things and also your skin is thinning and stretching as you, and your baby, grow.
These changes can behave in unpredictable ways. For example, if you have eczema you may suffer from major flare-ups or complete remission during pregnancy.
Keep your body well moisturized and avoid products that contain synthetic additives, colorants, fragrance or preservatives. Any of these can exacerbate sensitive skin problems.
Before trying a new product, you can always do a patch test to test for sensitivity.
And again, we recommend that expectant and nursing mothers check with their midwife or physician before changing a skincare routine with our products, or any other line of products.
I was a bit skeptical about this product. The idea of mixing soap and face cream just seemed weird. I have been using Burts Bees cleansing cream which was working ok, but sadly BB is not so natural anymore. I bought a small jar to try a few months ago and now I have reordered it 4 times. I just can't believe how it makes my skin feel. I also use the coconut honey face scrub once a week it smells so good I could eat it . My skin is clear and complexion is actually brighter if that makes sense. Thanks so much for making REALLY natural products. Elaine, Michigan
This is my absolute holy grail face wash for the dry winter months. I could not use this in the summer due to how oily my skin naturally is. I simply didn't need the extra moisture. I trusted that it would come in handy in the winter, and it absolutely did. Now I alternate between this face wash and the Carrot and Honey complexion bar because it locks in the perfect amount of moisture for my now dryer winter skin. If I just wash my eye area twice with this, it completely removes my makeup as well and leaves my skin feeling supple. Kiana, Canada
Hi! I just had to tell you that I received my butter cream face wash, two days now I've used it, and I did not change any face creams or make up, just what I'm washing my face with. For the first time, my face doesn't have a slight itchy feeling under my makeup or at night like it usually did! I've either taken my make up off with coconut oil or jojoba the washed my face with Dove , or Olay Regenerist face wash. I didn't think I was using any thing very harsh, but your buttercream face wash makes my face feel like it's protected and moisturized. I always had oily skin but about 20 years ago had to have a complete hysterectomy. Let me tell you, nothing turns your body in a tale spin like stripping your body of all hormone function! I've worked hard to protect my skin and try to keep it wrinkle free and Un damaged so as to not look way older than my years. I also have itchy skin and love the products I've purchased so far! Thanks so much ! I love them all but really had to mention this so you know how much I appreciate quality products! I could go on but I won't take up any more of your time. God bless you! Marilyn, Indiana
I used the Butter Face Wash for a couple weeks now. I wanted to make sure I used it a while before I shared my experience with you. I have dermatitis on my face, it's not real bad but it does flare up on occasion. I have been washing my face in just raw honey for the last 2 yrs or so. And using Almond oil or Grapeseed Oil for a moisturizer. I can't use just anything or it will cause my face to flare up. Anyway... I've been wanting to try something else, which I was so sick of trying everything that would not work and no matter how gentle it said, I just couldn't use anything on my face. I've been using your Butter Face Wash for two weeks now and no flare ups, which is a miracle! I was so thankful to find something that worked. I wanted to make sure it worked before I mentioned anything too. Usually in less than a week sometimes a day I will be able to tell if something will work or not. That's what I wanted to share because if someone out there has dermatitis I would recommend this to them. I know there is no cure for dermatitis, but this is so nice to be able to just wash your face. Thanks for all your great products, I also love the shampoo bars. Dolores, Ohio
Ida, you have hit a home run with the new Butter Cream Face Wash! I ordered it on my last order and my face has looked and felt fantastic. You are a gem, and I'm going to die the day you retire! If your family doesn't continue your legacy, will you adopt me so that I can get your secrets? Thank you so much for your wonderful products. I love every one of the items I have tried, from shampoo and body bars, face creams, salves, and dog shampoo bars. They are all truly wonderful and I can't do without them! Yvonne, California
Hello, I want to tell you about my teen daughter's experience with your Butter Cream Face Wash. For a long time now, she has had problems with her face breaking out with acne and rashes. She seemed to be allergic to every face wash in the world. We were beginning to wonder how to keep her face clean. She's been using your face wash for a couple of week now, and so far, she hasn't had a reaction to it. She loves it and her face is looking great. Camille, Tennessee
Dear Ida, I was one of the people who asked for a face scrub without the sugar. When you emailed and told me you would try and make one, frankly I thought it was one of those blow off responses. A company that actually listens to their customers, how refreshing is that. I love the new face wash butter. It was just what I was hoping for. I have been using many of your products for a while. There are no soaps that moisturize and clean like yours.
My facial skin has been pretty bad all of my life. When I discovered your facial sugar scrub it made such a difference. I was using it once a day. Now I still use it once a day in the morning and at night I use the new face butter wash cream. I usually follow with a bit of your squalane. I can’t believe that a face cream that only costs 6 bucks could work the way it does. It is so light and delicate. That little jar lasts for about a month. I was buying face creams for 50 dollars (full of all kinds of stuff I could not pronounce) that did not work at all and I think it was even a smaller jar.
My skin looks so good that an old friend I had not seen for many months thought I had some dermatological procedure done to clear it up. I was so embarrassed by my skin that I needed to cover it with loads of makeup. Now ….just a bit of blush and I am out the door. You have no idea what your products have done for me. I look it the mirror and just smile. I want to thank you again for the butter face wash and wish you and your family the best and lots of success because I never want you to stop making all of your great products. Kelly, Virginia
