Essential Oils are naturally derived from plants and have a multitude of uses. They are a wonderful way to add fragrance to your home made candles, soap and other skin care items.

These oils are highly concentrated. 1 oz of essential oil will scent approximately 8 pounds of wax or soap.

Bergamot- Mint (Oregon)
Spearmint (Pacific Northwest)
Ylang Ylang (new!)
**Special Note: Some of these oils are gaining popularity as a natural method of feeding and medicating honeybees. The following are suitable to use in the hive to promote honey bee health (lemongrass, spearmint, peppermint & wintergreen) and as a natural treatment for mite control (thyme and eucalyptus).
