Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel. Proverbs 27:9
For simplicity's sake, all scents are listed alphabetically. EO is an abbreviation for essential oil. Because ALL fragrance oils (even the ones that claim to be "natural") are solvent-based, synthetic chemicals that cause damage to your wool, to the environment, and to your health, we will not use them to scent our products.
Allspice EO: The aroma is similar to a mixture of pepper, clove and cinnamon....it is spicy and warm, like the actual spice.
Allspice/Nutmeg EO Blend: A mysterious mix of these familiar herbs is spicy yet sweet. Makes me hungry for eggnog and snickerdoodles!
Amyris EO: This essential oil is commonly referred to as West Indian Sandalwood; however, it is not a true replacement for Sandalwood essential oil. The oil is extracted from wood chips of the tree. Its aroma is sweet and a little smoky and is known for its calming benefits.
Anise (Star) EO: Spicy, warm, licorice-like aroma like anise seed.
Autumn Breeze EO Blend: Balsamic amyris, lemon-y palmarosa, and earthy vetiver make this one-of-a-kind essential oil blend a perfect for fall woolwash days. The warm, natural aroma welcomes the cool autumn wind and invokes the lingering summer warmth with a hint of citrus. Enjoy!
Bay Rum EO: Light, spicy, sweet aroma, just like the Old Spice cologne your dad wore, but it's soft enough for the ladies too!
Bergamot EO: A nice combination of lemon/orange citrus and floral. Adds a slight greenish tinge to bar and to liquid soap. We purchase only bergaptene free bergamot, so you need not worry about photosensitivity.
Black Pepper EO:This EO has a fresh, dry-woody, warm and spicy scent. Best used in small amounts, it is absolutely divine when added to citrus oils, bergamot, or ylang ylang!
Cardamom EO: One of my favorite scents from India, Cardamom is often ground and sprinkled on rice pudding. Smells nutty, spicy, and sweet all at once.
Cedarwood (Virginia) EO: The first line of defense against wool-chewers, this oil comes from my favorite state and future home. It is also known as red cedar. Naturally, it has a woody scent, but this particular cedar is sweeter than most. Blends well with herbal and spice oils.
Chamomile (Roman) EO: Also known as Sweet Chamomile, its scent is sweet, herby, fruity, and apple-like. Very useful for colicky babies.
Christine's EO Blend:Peru balsam is the base note for this blend, adding a gentle vanilla-ish, woodsy softness to lavender, bergamot, and ylang ylang essential oils.
Cinnamon Leaf EO: A warm and spicy aroma, just like red-hots! A highly antiseptic and very strong oil, only a small amount is necessary to scent products.
Citrus EO Blend: Bright and fresh! Citrus blend is a lovely combination of lemon, lime, sweet orange, mandarin, tangerine, and pink & white grapefruit essential oils. A customer favorite for years!
Citrus & Sage EO Blend:A lovely blend of orange, lemon, and lime citrus oils with clary sage. Perfect for boys or girls, the softness of the citrus nicely balances the tart herbal scent of the sage for a warm blend!
Clary Sage EO: An herbal scent that is earthy and fresh with a hint of fruit, clary sage is markedly different from its food-y smelling culinary counterpart, Dalmation Sage.
Clove Bud EO: A strong, spicy oil. Warming on the skin, only a few drops are needed to scent products. Blends well with citrus oils and softer woody oils like peru balsam and sandalwood.
Coriander Seed EO: A sharp, pungent oil that blends well with bergamot, lemon, and jasmine.

Drama Queen EO Blend: A blend exclusive to a former retailer who has since closed their doors, we've got some left! This blend was made with sweet orange which adds sweetness, clove which adds spice, and patchouli for a gentle earthy note.
Eucalyptus EO: A camphourous, medicinal odor with a slightly sweet, woody undertone. A great moth repellent!
Fennel EO: This is an herbal scent, slightly reminiscent of anise. It is a spice widely used in Mediterranean cuisine and it is one of the primary ingredients in absinthe.

Geranium EO: Sweet, heavy aroma, somewhat like rose with a minty, spicy overtone
Ginger EO:Spicy, woody, warm, with a hint of lemon and pepper. Spicy, woody, warm, with a hint of lemon and pepper. Blends very well with citrus oils.

Jan's EO Blend: Sweet orange, clove bud, and a hint of nutmeg...just like Grandma's simmering spices! Warm and welcoming.
Lavender(French)EO: French lavender's aroma is the truest most floral of all lavenders. Slightly herbaceous with woody undertones it is a classic scent for baby.
Lavender Chamomile EO Blend: The ultimate in soothing! these flowers have a spicy twinge to them but they are most commonly used in night-time blends to calm and relax.
Leeja's EO Blend: Ylang-ylang, sweet orange, and geranium...a warm blend that's a little spicy and a little sweet and a LOT awesome!
Leleshwa EO: Often called African wild sage, this oil is powerfully herbal, reminiscent of tea tree, and bugs can't stand it!
Lemon EO: Bright, clean citrus!
Lemongrass EO:Sweet, herbaceous, smoky and lemony aroma. An excellent moth/insect repellent.
Lemongrass Love EO Blend:Lemongrass is a perennial customer favorite, but the stuff gives me a dreadful headache! I blended this lovely essential oil with my personal favorite Peru Balsam to soften the blow. I still got a headache, but the balsam adds a note of softness to the bright citrus tanginess of the lemongrass. Truly a blend to love!

Myrhh EO:One of the gifts given to the infant Jesus, myrhh is actually tree sap. It is thick, with a wonderfully smoky scent. Myrhh is still used widely in ointments and as incense.
Myrtle EO: A woody oil with hints of sweetness and camphor. Blends nicely with lemon.
No Bugz! EO Blend:A surprisingly pleasant blend of oils chosen for their bug repelling abilities. Excellent for washing wool before storage between babies, but particularly beneficial in warm climates where bugs are a year-round concern! Verbena, French lavender, cedar, spruce, litsea cubeba, lemongrass, rosemary, geranium, clove, allspice, and basil. This batch seizes because of the allspice and clove, ugly bars, but the high glycerin content resulting from the extreme heat generated is BEAUTIFUL for your woolies! Found only here, at Emmaya Naturals!
Nutmeg EO: Spicy, warm, and sweet, delightful on its own or blended with a vanilla fragrance.
Orange Spice EO Blend:Who needs simmering spices when you've got wool wash?! This is a lovely blend of sweet orange, cinnamon, clove, anise, and black pepper essential oils. I made it just in time for fall and holiday weather. Warm and inviting, with just the right amount of spice.
Orange(Sweet) EO: Bright and cheery, this oil is delightful on its own, but blends well with florals, woods, herbs, and citruses too.
Palmarosa EO: A fresh floral, palmarosa is not overly sweet or feminine. Similar to geranium but without the "kick"!
Patchouli EO: Don't shy away from this one! Patchouli's rich, woody scent adds a nice earthiness to just about any blend.
Peru Balsam EO: My favorite yet! I can't even describe it...from its name, you'd expect something woodsy, but it just smells soft, clean, and natural. Kinda like a smokey vanilla.

Rosemary Mint EO Blend: Rosemary essential oil blended with spearmint and peppermint essential oils and a touch of ginger and lime. This is a fresh, clean, inviting scent. Perfect for early fall.
Rosewood EO: Sweet, softly floral, and woody, this is one of the few wood oils that doesn't need another oil to soften or round it out but it also blends very well with just about anything!
Sandalwood EO: Another very precious and expensive oil, sandalwood is delicately fragrant with a wonderfully sweet balance of floral and wood notes. A very popular oil for colognes and perfumes alike. *because it is an endangered species, we no longer offer this oil as a scent choice for products, but we use it sparingly in a few proprietary blends. We suggest Amyris or Peru Balsam as sustainable alternatives.
Sara's EO Blend: Canadian black spruce, peru balsam, rosewood, and myrtle... fresh, natural, and a little woodsy too!
Shannon's EO Blend: A stroke of inspiration, this blend was made for a dear Canadian customer and mom of 8...4 of whom are in full-time wool! It's a wonderful choice for boys and girls. A proprietary blend of rosewood, bergamot, geranium, and ylang ylang essential oils. Found exclusively at Emmaya Naturals!
Spearmint EO: Similar to spearmint, but softer and sweeter. Blends well with citrus and rosemary.

Tangerine EO: A lovely citrus oil, this one stands alone easily, but will also blend well with florals, spices, and citrus oils alike.
Tangerine Tango EO Blend: They say it takes two-to-tango, but we thought three would be better. This refreshing blend of tangerine, bergamot, and basil oil will make you want to dance!
Tea Tree EO: A strong herbal oil that has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties.
Tea Tree/Eucalyptus EO Blend: Distinctly herbal in nature and slightly medicinal, this fragrance screams CLEAN. An excellent blend for use before storing your wool as moths and their larvae hate it!
Verbena EO: Verbena is the ideal mixture of herb, floral, and citrus components in one oil. It is very popular in perfuming, but adapts surprisingly well with other herbal and spice oils for more masculine blends too. It smells fresh, bright, and clean.
Vetiver EO: A spicy and herbaceous oil, vetiver blends well with just about anything, adding a rich earthiness to the scent.
Wintergreen EO: A wonderfully sweet mint, when used alone or in the mint medley blend, because of the powerful nature of this oil, is used only in very small quantities.
Wiper EO Blend:Softly herbal, this blend contains basil, lavender, helichrysm, lemon, clove, and eucalyptus. We like it for our wipe water because it smells fresh and clean and resists mildew growth.
Ylang Ylang EO: Floral, sweet, and fruity, I only use Ylang Ylang Extra, the product of the first steam distillation of the plant, and the most complete version of this precious oil.
