Several years ago, I manufactured bath and body products. I still have all my old recipes and kept notes on the ones that were most popular and that had the best results. I’ve finally gotten some of my old products back on the shelves at the salon.
I started out with a Fitness Foot Care product line that includes Foot Powder, Foot Spray, and Foot Relief Lotion. I had my male clientele in mind (and women who work out frequently) when I created these products. The powder and spray contain tea tree, lavender, and chamomile and are very soothing. The lotion has a blend of eucalyptus, orange, rosemary, and peppermint essential oils. We have to be very careful of the claims we make with these products, but essential oils (EOs) are well known for properties including being anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, soothing, calming, muscle tension relief, etc. So we selected the EOs included in our products based on these known properties.
Other products we have brought back to manufacture are cuticle oils, lotions, and body sprays. We will be bringing back many other products as we go and as the demand increases. These products may contain both EOs and fragrance oils (FOs) depending on the desired scent and application.
