completeEssential oils Natural Skin Care

texas scrub complete essential oils natural skin care

Bela, our founder and herbalist, started formulating her own natural skin care and therapeutic products from essential oils and botanical over 20 years ago.  Her love for natural treatments started as a child.

At the age of ten, she had a toothache so severe it would wake her up in the middle of the night.  It was not a cavity.  Her front teeth had pain and could be moved when pressed on.  This was particularly disturbing as these were her new “adult” teeth.  When she told her mom about this, she was sent to her grandmother Mita.  Mita sent her out with her grandfather Papain.  Papain took Bela out into the scrub, cactus, and mesquite of the Texas countryside outside Laredo and showed her a plant. 

Papain pulled this plant from the ground, and showed Bela a roundish tuber on the bottom.  He shook off all the sand and dirt.  Papain handed Bela the root and told her to bite it, and chew it, and to swirl the juice around her teeth and gums.  She did this, and then spit it out as directed,  and then they returned home.   Instantly her teeth and gums became strong and healthy. She never suffered from any teeth problems again. Dentists would tell her that her teeth were extremely strong, and she has lived with few cavities. In those early years she began her study of herbs, plants and natural treatments.

Then in the 1990’s, she suffered a serious back injury.  Warned by her doctor that surgery would probably not solve her problems, and would make even worse problems for her in the future, she resolved to deal with her back issues by other means.  She tried every kind of cream and liniment that she could find and over time was never completely satisfied.  Her pain and fatigue continued.  She found herself using a cane and back brace, and in deep pain.

Remembering her childhood, and her grandmother’s remedies, made in her kitchen, and sold to many satisfied customers, Bela set her mind to developing a deep penetrating treatment from natural oils, essential oils, and botanicals.  After many tries, she discovered a formula that was very effective.  After she had been using it for a while, friends and relatives started to ask for it.

Bela went on to develop other products using all natural ingredients and the completeEssential oils products were born.  These products repair, heal, lubricate, soothe and moisturize the skin with natural oils, essential oils and botanicals.  They won’t dry out or irritate.  We are very happy to be providing products that are therapeutic and nourish the skin, From the Good Earth!

    I picked up your Peppermint Cocoa Lip Balm on a recent trip to Raliegh and would like to order more but the product is not listed on this website. Do you still carry it? I really like it!

      Hugs and kisses! So glad you like it. We had held off listing it because Bela was all out from making enough stock for Christmas, but it is on the site now. Check it out here! . Our lip balm is also available at the Chatham Marketplace in Pittsboro and at Dechen’s Collections in Raleigh. Durham Craft market opens this Saturday and we will be there each Saturday weather permitting this Summer as well.

    Hello, My boyfriend works in landscaping and has acne breakouts. We found an oil at a shop in Norfolk Va, it has lavender in it and cant remember the other ingredients, it was a really lightweight oil. Would you have something at your shop that could help with acne? Bernadette

      Not sure if I replied to this privately, Bernadette. I recommend the Chlorophyll Charcoal soap or the Derma Neem Cream Soap. The Tea Tree, Lavender, Spearmint soap also has helped people with this skin issue.
