Essential Oils and Your Skin

February 01, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 192

So you've finally decided to bite the bullet and start your own skin care line. For some of you, that means creating products for yourself or loved ones, and for others it means creating products for resale. Whatever the case may be, you've looked into creating bath and body products and have come to find that essential oils are an essential, no pun intended, part of the creation process.

The first step is finding/creating your base. If you are looking to create your own lotion, it's best to find a good lotion base first. Obviously you want to look for wholesale and bulk. These are great keywords to keep in mind when creating your product. Oftentimes you may find a company that provides base in small quantities, and the price will be outrageous. If you buy in larger quantities, you can save quite a bit of money. Once you decide the product base, it's time to research how you want to go about customizing with essential oils. Every essential oil will have different benefits. Some will provide more moisture, others will have health benefits. Decide what you want your product to do. Do you want it to be beneficial health-wise, or would you rather have a product that is more focused on beauty? Furthermore, are you looking to create an organic or natural product, or something more synthetic. These are all great points to keep in mind, particularly when it comes to marketing your product.

Once you decide what kind of product you want to make, it's time to find the best price and availability on essential oils. Once again, it's important to look for terms like 'bulk' or 'wholesale' when looking for essential oils. If you are creating your own product, chances are you will need large quantities. If you go to a local drug store or beauty supply store, they can market these essential oils up exponentially. Furthermore, you want to make sure to find 100% pure oils. What you will find in doing research, is that many companies cut the essential oil with what is called a 'carrier' oil. The company then drives up the cost on a synthetic product that will not have all the benefits you need. Finally, from a marketing standpoint, it is a great benefit to you, the seller, to provide a product with 100% pure ingredients as much as possible.

As I always say, it is up to you to be the most intelligent consumer possible. Research, research, research. I often have people coming to me and asking how to start their own line. If you create a product line, you can make fantastic product, work from home and customize everything the way you want. However, you have to know the product back and forth. Look into every ingredient, take stock of the back and body products you use and like most, see what ingredients are in them. Finally, be a smart shopper and buy bulk. For bulk essential oils, find them at wholesale costs and large quantities from a reputable company.
