Love for Natural Escents Products

Posted by megan on 4/5/2012 to Products
Melissa, from Newfoundland, posted a blog about how much loves our Organic Handmade Soaps. It was such a nice compliment, we though we'd share. We love how she describes, "the soapy goodness":)
 
"I decided to try out the Escents Organics Handmade Soap that we carry here in the shop. I  most typically buy my soap from our local soap shop Tval Skincare but, change is always good.  This soap is still made in Canada. Theyíre based out of Vancouver.  They have a whole history of the line on the website in the about us section but Iíll try and summarize in brief.
 
Escents has based itís line on plant-based eco-friendly production that strives for the healthy promotion of symmetry between body and soul. The company uses the principles of aromatherapy to create unique blends that make for great suds time in the shower.
 
Now that youíve got an idea about the company Iím going to review the Matcha Tea Soap!
 
As you can see in the picture to the left, the packaging is minimal. I loved that. Itís nice  not to have a whole pile of wrapping in the trash when all I want to do is use the soap to scrub clean.  It also allows you to smell the forest for the trees. When you pick this soap up the first thing you want to do is to put it to your nose.
 
You can really see someone hand cutting the soap into these nice square cakes for us here in Newfoundland. The packaging tells you a little about the scent, the company, and other important information like where it comes from (Vancouver) and that itís biodegradable, not tested on animals, paraben free, mineral oil free, SLS, and phosphate free. Most soaps are full of this harsh stuff!
 
Itís nice to see right on the label that itís safe for people of all ages (kids too) so you donít have worry about different soaps for different folks (unless you want to). This vegan soap is great for awakening your senses. It has both mind focusing and inner peace instilling essential oils to get you feeling great. Itís also got some cornmeal to help the exfoliation process of your skinís natural rejuvenation.
 
When I brought it in my shower I was pleased that it fit perfectly on those tiny, slippery ledges that the shower fitting wizards created for maximum soap-dropping. It was quick to suds up in the shower with my washcloth, the scent exploded into my shower with a clean refreshing scent that was great for first thing in the morning. Though I didnít find it too strong for the small sized bathroom. The scent is comparable to any of your usual bubble bath smells, not overpowering.
 
With all the soapy goodness created by the combination of soap and washcloth I was able to clean up every inch in a lickety-split fashion. Lots of soap, little sticky after soap left on the body. I tend to dry out using commercial soaps like Dove or Ivory, serious alligator skin! So, thatís why I initially switched to handmade soaps. This particular brand definitely did not disappoint. I even went without moisturizing with coconut oil to give it the true test. Iím proud to say Iíve been itch free!
 
So, my conclusion as to whether you should try out this line of soaps is that you should! If it was ranked out of 5 stars this product would get a definite 4 out of 5!"
 
 

More of what you're saying about Escents

Posted by Johanna on 3/20/2012 to Community

One of our wonderful customers, Melissa, posted this on her blog back in February. It's so nice, we thought we'd re-post here. Thanks Melissa!

"In the last few years, Iíve developed allergies to perfumes and eau de toilettes. They make me sneeze like crazy. It must be all the chemicals they put in them. But because I like smelling nice, I wanted an alternative. When I was in high school, I wore patchouli essential oil (!!) I remembered this just when I was discovering Vancouver-based Escents AromatherapyĎs made in Canada products last year. Theyíve been aromatherapy essential oil experts since 1992. What Iíve worn almost every day this month is their Essential Oil Blend called Love.

Escents Aromatherapy Blend: Love

Itís really a breathtaking blend. I canít even begin to describe how deep and passionately intoxicating this scent is. I love it even more when I smell it on my scarf or on my coat days after I havenít put any onÖ. You have to try it. According to their description (which I totally agree with) this blend combines the passion and romance inspired by rose otto essential oil, and the sensual qualities of jasmine essential oil, this blend is truly one to fall in love with.

A little goes a long way so just a few drops on your pulse points will do. What Iíve discovered in wearing an Escentsí essential oil blend as a perfume is that it costs a fraction of what regular designer fragrances do and lasts twice as long. Equally cool is that you wonít smell like everyone else (finally, some individuality!) and all their blends contain pure ingredients, zero chemicals or dyesÖ Completely natural. If not this blend, choose one. You wonít regret it."
