About

Take a walk down The Natural Path

On April 1, 2011, The Natural Path opened its brick and mortar shop but Branwen's Botanicals was born two and a half years earlier when I discovered that if I wanted to have high-quality, organic products that didn't contain toxins or other objectionable ingredients and wouldn't break the bank, I was going to have to make them myself.

❧Owned, operated, and managed entirely by me, Branwen's Dreams offers a large array of high-quality, hand-crafted herbal wares for individuals who are tired of mass-produced, toxin laden products. Crafted as they are, in the tradition of the Ancient Ways and the Pharmakeute of old, my therapeutic wellness blends, flower essences, herbal remedies, organic and natural skin care, smudge & linen sprays, perfume & ritual oils, and every other item that leaves my shop is mindfully crafted small batches in harmony with the authentic and sacred traditions of the Old Ways, with extra attention to detail, within sacred space.

I use only Certified Organic / Ethically Wild-crafted / Free-trade ingredients and absolutely nothing I offer is mass produced or contains ingredients that I would not be totally comfortable using for myself and my family. It is quality and integrity, not volume sales, that motivate me and I think my clients and customers appreciate the difference.

Why I Don't Use Fragrance Oils

It doesn't happen often, but I have been asked once or twice why the cost of some of my products is higher than similar products that can be found out there. Invariably, the answer lies in the oils that are used to scent the product; the less expensive products are usually made with fragrance oils and non-organic ingredients. I refuse to use synthetic oils in my products, first and foremost because pure, essential oils impart therapeutic benefits that a fragrance oil simply cannot. When you're looking to affect a specific change, pure essential oils can't be beat. But let's get back to the fragrance oil thing.

What's the difference between essential and fragrance oils, you ask? Well, quite honestly, there is no comparison in my opinion, but read on for the contrasts.

Essential oils are 100% pure, natural extracts that come from fruits, herbs, plants, trees, seeds, flowers, and roots (i.e. they are from NATURE).
❧ Essential oils are extracted using steam distillation or are pressed by expeller press in the case of citrus fruits. Essential oils that are extracted by food grade solvent are called absolutes. However they are extracted, they should only be called essential oils when they are entirely unadulterated, the way that nature made them, and come from a source directly from nature.

Essential oils are extremely complex beings, and the components that make up an essential oil and give it its scent are only a small part of the oil. The sum total of all of these components gives an essential oil life and energy and its incredible powers to heal, balance, uplift, calm, and invigorate a person. They have an effect that is completely organic and in-tune with our bodies, supported by years of evolution and our exposure to the plants and trees that they come from.

Fragrance oils, in contrast, are composed mainly or completely of manufactured, synthesized ingredients.
❧ Fragrance oils might be made up in part of an essential oil, but more often than not (especially if the essential oil is expensive), they are completely synthetic. The problems with fragrance oils are many-fold. Fragrance oils contain hundreds of synthetic chemicals, none of which are regulated by government agencies and they contain toxins that can very well damage every organ in your body, including your brain. Our bodies have not had the thousands of years to develop the pathways needed in order to process these chemicals, as they have with natural essential oils, and our bodies cannot effectively eliminate them. These toxins are either stored in our body's fatty tissues, processed part way into other harmful chemicals, or, in a best case scenario, they are excreted as they were when they went in.

Why would anyone want to use fragrance oil? I certainly don't and never will; that is why I don't sell them.
❧ Are they less expensive than essential oils? Certainly, however is it worth saving a couple dollars when you're not going to know what you're really getting? I don't believe so. And, sure, there are certain scents that you can only find in a fragrance oil, because it simply doesn't exist in Nature, but in my own opinion, that does not justify putting potentially toxic chemicals in my products (and since manufacturers are not required to list all of their ingredients in these oils, there would be no way to know just what I'd be using). No thank you! I prefer not to be in the dark when it comes to what goes in or on my body and I'm sure you do, too.
