The term evergreen simply refers to a plant that keeps its leaves green year round. For our Hand Sanitizer, we chose a blend of three evergreens (in the form of essential oils): organic Nordic Pine, Rosemary and Eucalyptus. Each of these plants have a therapeutic intention, or benefit, which we carefully consider in the formulation stage. Together, they form a scent profile that is reminiscent of deep green forests, for a sensory escape into nature wherever you may be.
– Cleansing properties and a calming effect.
Pine has been extensively studied and researched for its benefits in natural medicine; various pine extracts are often sold in Europe as a pharmaceutical / prescription ingredient. Pine is extremely rich in various antioxidants that have a long alkyl chain (long length structure), which means that these compounds can stay in the bloodstream longer.
– Clarifying for the air, uplifting for the senses.
Eucalyptus provides a unique sensation that’s fresh on the skin and opens the sinuses and lungs. Eucalyptus is a cooling plant that's been found to help ease inflammation and manage the natural inflammatory process.
– Calming for the mind, restorative for the body.
Rosemary has been extensively studied, and has a number of various health benefits and is often consumed in supplements. This is because the plant is loaded with antioxidants that work on cannabinoid receptors in the body (our endorphin-system and perception of pain). Research has also been found to support rosemary and it’s various constituents for aromatherapy and skincare, supporting skin-renewal and mood.
