Hailing from Santa Barbara, California, Herban Essentials brings us the best of the world’s essential oils in the form of easy-to-carry towelettes. All of Herban Essentials’ oils are of the highest quality, 100% pure, therapeutic grade, and either steam distilled or cold pressed.
What are essential oils, you ask? Simply put, essential oils are a plant’s life force. They are the aromatic essences that are extracted from plants, flowers, fruits, etc. Along with their delightful scents, they are also equipped with antibacterial, antiseptic, and therapeutic properties.
Mostly, they are used to cleanse hands of germs, but they can also serve multiple other purposes. They can be used as cleaning wipes, car air fresheners, stain removers, injury disinfectants, laundry aroma, and even insect repellants. They also tend to be great for traveling as they are easy to carry, and, as they are not liquids, they won’t cause a hassle with airport security.
