Welcome and a little bit about me and this creative journey I’m on!
Welcome to my new website. For those of you who follow me on Instagram or Facebook and perhaps checked out my previous website, you will be familiar with my brand and what I'm all about. For those of you who don't know me or who are just discovering my products, I want to officially introduce myself.
Hello, my name is Emily Dillman and I am the creator of Cabin Fever Essentials. I've been working with essential oils for a few years now, making my own essential oil blends for aromatherapy and also adding them to my natural products.
A more natural life style has always been my goal. My small home based business located in the Rideau Lakes area was born out of my desire and obsession to create more natural skincare products for myself and my family. This obsession grew with the birth of my first child in 2014. I am a stay at home mom and although I love my two children and spending time with them I was desperate for my own identity. I was definitely suffering from some “cabin fever.” I started creating products of my own, using only natural and organic ingredients including essential oils and beeswax.
So about a year and a half ago, after some much needed encouragement and motivation from some very close friends and family, I decided that I not only wanted to make these products for myself and my family, but for others who were looking for more natural products in their lives as well.
My line now includes many skincare products, bath products, soap, essential oil perfume blends and beeswax candles.
I use beeswax in many of my products. I am very lucky to have a wonderful beeswax source from a small scale honey producer in Nova Scotia. My husband is from a small town in Nova Scotia and his parents currently live there so each time we drive back-and-forth you can be sure that our truck will be loaded up with beeswax. Their beeswax is such a vibrant colour and the most aromatic beeswax I have ever smelled. I also acquire some of my beeswax from another lovely source in Ontario. Beeswax is very moisturizing and acts as an excellent emollient (softens and soothes skin) and humectant (attracts moisture). Most of my products are anhydrous which means they do not contain water. Beeswax provides an excellent base for many of my products, such lip balm and lotion bars. I also make my candles using beeswax and coconut wax. Beeswax is the safest, purist and healthiest wax to burn. Beeswax emits negative ions which attract to the positively charged yucky stuff that floats around in our air and weighs it down so that it drops to the ground. Then you can just vacuum it up! Burning a beeswax candle can actually improve the air quality of people suffering from allergies. Coconut wax is a very soft wax. I add it to my aromatherapy candles to hold on to the scent better and it is very clean burning.
I'm truly striving to create beautiful, healthy, skin quenching, sense elevating products that can be enjoyed by people with different skin types. I hope you take a chance on me and try out some of the products that I have to offer.
Thanks for visiting my new website and for taking the time to read this post.
See you soon!
