I have the most sensitive skin, so I was so happy to find locally made very gentle hand soap that didn’t dry my skin out, or get it red and itchy. Having a toddler with active salivary glands and washing my hands quite often, dryness and irritation is always something I experience with commercial hand soaps.
Imagine my delight when I found castille-based gentle liquid soaps from Esscentials Manila! The best thing about it is that many of their soaps are essential oils based. I’ve quit any products that uses “parfum” or chemical scents, and my lungs and skin are all the better for it. When you order, just ask Tina, the lovely owner of Esscentials Manila, which ones are EO (essential oils) based and she will tell you. My favorite is her Green Tea fragrance, but she has so many options to choose from!
The word “fragrance” or “parfum” on the product label represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants such as diethyl phthalate. Fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system. – EWG Skin Deep

Her items can come in beautiful boxes or pouches, like this:
And the reed diffusers in reusable, abaca gift bags with ribbon.
When you give your gifts, be sure to tell you’re loved ones, that they don’t need to throw away the personalized bottled, when they are done with it, because they can buy refills in bulk. It’s economical, and better for the environment too! The biggest refill is up to a gallon.
Aside from Gentle Liquid Soap, Room Sprays and diffusers, she has many other useful and thoughtful products, which you can order in one of her many essential oil scents. The packaging of her products is so elegant and minimalist, it wont clutter your space or your bags. Since doing the Kon Mari Method, I now make sure that each and every product I buy, is not just effective and healthy, but also doesn’t clutter up my serene space with garish colors or ugly packaging.
If you would like to order beautiful, essential oil-scented products for Christmas that is also more sustainable with options to refill, hurry and get in touch with Tina, before she gets really busy for the holidays. =) She also has:
