Did you know that essential oils can have a function outside of olfactory (aroma) sensation? With each level of care in the Apothecary Muse product lines, the presence, source, amount and order of formulation is thoughtfully prepared to provide the least impact on the environment with performance for different kinds of skin or body chemistry. It is recommended that you read the descriptions, ingredients and not shop by what you like to smell, alone – while lavender may suit your bathing experience, it may not be compatible with the type of chemistry your body is creating to be effective as a deodorant. Not one product works for everyone and it would be misleading for anyone to suggest that. Indeed, to have the multitude of ingredients to accommodate everyone in a single product would be environmentally and economically wasteful, ultimately serving NO ONE.
Our Gentle Care level uses little to no essential oils for the most sensitive skin and athletic lifestyles, the Everyday Care level includes an industry standard 2% dilution of essential oils to be effective for casual activity, and the Advanced Care level has added functionality with a combination of herbal extracts, essential oils and exfoliants or clays for occasion use to restore the body’s natural systems – not to be confused with medicine. Our biodegradable paperboard tube and reusable tin products have our custom washi tape with the levels of care indicated, in addition to the familiar iconic trail sign levels of difficulty: Green Circle, Blue Square, Black Diamond. And the soap bars have the icon on the side of the label.
