Finding The Right Essential Oils For You

by Nandini S + India Sutra 23 Jun 2021

Essential oils are aromatic compounds with therapeutic properties. Their benefits are in multitudes, besides helping us fight common colds, stress, anxiety, skin issues, acne, hair problems, they also work wonderfully as aromatic fragrances or in diffusers. Regularly using essential oils can nourish dry skin, promote healthy hair, and keep your face looking vibrant.

Tips on how to find a good essential oil:

  • Look out for oils that contain only aromatic plant compounds, without additives or synthetic oils.
  • Pure oils usually list the plant’s botanical name.
  • True essential oils do not change by the extraction process.
  • Choose an essential oil that has been extracted through distillation or mechanical cold pressing.

PRO TIP: Try using a blend of Vetiver, chamomile, and lavender — for stress. The aroma for this blend will leave you relaxed and restored. Or try applying peppermint and lavender oil to the skin for headache. However, like most products today essential oils too can be easily adulterated.

So how can you check?

Just Bop it. Now you can check your brand on zoobop.com before buying a product.

Before making a purchase, It has become routine for me to always check the brand on Zoobop. I simply BOP a brand and get all the information I need on it. The good, the bad and the ugly.

Wouldn't you want to know what you are REALLY putting on your skin? Zoobop checks your brand for toxicity, environment concerns, sustainability, animal testing, transparency, recycling amongst many other details to arrive at a clean or dirty score. It has helped me make cleaner and more sustainable choices for my family.

Only clean brands with a good score, after being strictly vetted, are available on the Zoo Shop (marketplace).

With the best clean and safe authentic brands, they promise you clean and green beauty and they deliver it.
