For the month of October, we are introducing two relaxing KidSafe oils from the same botanical family!
Our Muhuhu and Goldenrod oils are an Oil of the Month offering throughout the month of October. Check back with us soon to see if we have added it to our collection.
Muhuhu Essential Oil
Step into your favorite fall campsite with each inhale of Muhuhu Essential Oil. Its smooth and smoky aroma is reminiscent of freshly cut wood or a relaxing night stargazing by the fireside. The Muhuhu tree, also known as African Sandalwood, grows native along the coasts of Africa. Prized for its honeyed, marbled appearance when polished, the wood is often harvested for flooring, furniture, carvings and crafts, while the leftover hardwood is steam distilled into an intriguing and deeply calming essential oil. Muhuhu provides a heavy base note and firmly grounding scent to essential oil blends, perfumes, and colognes. Its softening and soothing characteristics make it an excellent choice for topical application to support radiant, healthy-looking skin. Dilute in your favorite carrier oil to create a body oil or makeup-removing oil cleanser to experience the skin-balancing benefits.

Goldenrod Essential Oil
The bright golden daisy-like clusters from the Goldenrod herb bloom prolifically throughout North America, where it colonizes in grasslands, wastelands, meadows, savannas, and mountains. From the steam-distilled aerial parts of the plant comes a wonderfully relaxing remedy to help put the mind and body at ease. Reminiscent of those lazy late summer vibes, complete with the hum of crickets and bees, fresh cut grass, and warm sunshine, Goldenrod’s distinct aroma is thought to encourage feelings of togetherness and self-love. It is a well-known aphrodisiac and has traditional usage rooted in supporting feelings of love and intimacy. Blend with Ylang Ylang and diffuse or add to a massage oil for a romantic evening. Goldenrod also supports the appearance of healthy-looking skin and helps soothe unwanted redness and irritation when applied topically.
