Essential Wipes are biodegradable compressed tablets made of vegetable cellulose and infused with organic therapeutic essential oils. When hydrated with water they turn into an organic, low impact, fresh smelling towelette. Essential Wipes are sold in tubes of 10 or bags of 50 to reduce waste with less packaging. Essential Wipes have no chemicals or additives.
Essential Wipes seeks to serve those who are active and engaged in life, desiring to be fresh and healthy even in compromising hygienic circumstances, such a 7 day backpacking trip or an environment where showers/water is not readily available.
Infused With Five Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils:
1. Copaiba: Often used topically for skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, dandruff, bug bites and as an antifungal oil. It is a sustainably sourced resin-oil (oleoresin) from a tree in the Northern Amazon. Copaiba is harvested in a similar way to harvesting maple syrup which means it has a high yield and does little damage to the tree.
2. Lavender: A widely used essential oil known for its calming and soothing properties. It also increases circulation, disinfects the skin, is used for acne, psoriasis, cuts, burns, swelling and wrinkles.
3. Ylang ylang: Is used as a topical antiseptic and to alleviate problems related to the sebaceous glands which means it is helpful with acne and seborrheic eczema. The oil is distilled from a vine native to the Philippines and Indonesia, and is related to the custard-apple tree family.
4. Niaouli: An antiseptic to clean the skin and pores which helps with acne, bug bites and wound healing. It comes from a tree in the Australian wetlands where is has been used as an indigenous medicine for centuries.
These medicinal oils are certified organic and / or ethically wildharvested.
