“Founded in 1997, Herban Essentials is a boutique, woman-owned business located in Santa Barbara, California. Our mission is simple: make essential oils brilliantly portable. We create products we love to use ourselves. Our towelettes are proudly made in the USA and sold world-wide. Essential oils are the aromatic essences extracted from plants, flowers, bark, grasses, fruits, or seeds. The life force of a plant is contained in its essential oil. In addition to the lovely pleasing scents, essential oils are endowed with antibacterial, antiseptic and unique therapeutic properties. For thousands of years essential oils have been used to promote physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being. We especially love the joyful, bright, uplifting, cleansing, calming benefits of orange, lemon, eucalyptus, peppermint and lavender oils.”
