Herbal Infused Oils vs. Essential Oils
Herbal Infused Oils are safe and can be used directly on skin and hair.
Essential oils can cause rashes and burns if applied directly to skin or
hair. Infused oils are used at full strength and essential oil must be
diluted with water or a carrier oil before applying to skin or hair. Herbal
Infused oils can be used internally or externally. Essential oils can be

You can add essential oils to your herbal infused oils to give you more
of an herbal combination, however, we have different herbal infused oil
combinations for your hair, skin, and body.
