Essential Oils

Here at Little Luxuries by Alicia we only use essential oils to fragrance our products, never fragrance oils.

Essential oils are the oils that are distilled from the parts of the plant itself. This not only gives them their amazing scent, but also imbues their natural properties into the oil somewhat.

Listed are all the various essential oils we have here in alphabetical order. Their scientific (INCI) name is in brackets beside it.
