“Citrus” vs. Sweet Orange Essential Oil

Okay, it’s time for some real talk.

Yes, I love all of the Pure Haven Essentials products I have tried.  Yes, I am a Pure Haven Essentials Senior Consultant that loves sharing these products to help them live toxic free.  But when Pure Haven Essentials first announced their new product, Sweet Orange Sugar Scrub, this month–I was nervous.

When I was younger, one of my favorite places to shop was Bath & Body Works.  I grew up during the “Art Stuff” line–a line of body glitter and fragrances for tweens.   Of course, knowing what I know now makes me cringe at what we have been lathering and spraying on my body all these years.

My mom and I both had the same allergy to citrus when we tested their products.   It seems that every time we would try a “citrus” or “orange” product from their store, we would break out into an itchy rash and have to immediately wash it off to find some relief.  When I first started using Pure Haven Essentials, we were both skeptical of any of the products with Sweet Orange essential oil.  We were worried we would have the same allergic reaction.

Pure Haven Essentials prides themselves on their transparency with their customers.  We are committed to ensure ingredient quality with our three step ingredient quality process in our certified USDA Organic facility.  Produced here in the USA, we create small batches for fresh products without harmful chemicals.  We provide gluten free, cruelty free, and non-GMO ingredients with no parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances.  In fact, I email ingredient lists to my customers!

I have no idea what used to trigger our allergic reactions in “citrus” products from Bath and Body Works.  But thanks to my toxic-free journey with Pure Haven Essentials, I know which ingredients to look out for, like fragrance.

Tonight I used the new Sweet Orange Sugar Scrub while I was in the tub and I am DELIGHTED to text my mother letting her know I did not have skin reactions!  It is WONDERFUL.  The orange essential oil will be perfect for summer–I may even like it more than I love the Lemon Sugar Scrub.


My trust in this company has grown.  I think of all the years myself and my family had struggled with skin issues and other health issues that could have been solved sooner by a company like Pure Haven Essentials.  At first, I was angry–but it doesn’t solve anything to let that anger grow.  Instead, I make sure my voice is heard and I share our mission to other families.  And you can too.
