The Etta + Billie Chai Tea Soap is not just an enriching holiday bathing experience, but actually packed with so many rich ingredients that boost mood through aromatherapy and aid skin wellness. This week, we're exploring how three of the key ingredients (cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg) in our Chai Tea Line are so incredible for your skin. These are your bathing essentials for the winter season!
Cardamom is a uniquely scented spice that is the part of the same plant family as ginger and is a key ingredient in our Chai Tea scent collection. It also happens to be the third most expensive spice in the world (after saffron and vanilla)!! Cardamom essential oil is rich in antioxidants which help protect cells from environmental damage. This spice also has strong anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe. Aromatherapuetically, this beautiful essential oil can help calm and soothe nerves (perfect for the stress and intensity of the holiday season!). Studies have also shown that when applied externally, like in skin balms or soaps, this spice can kill several types of bacteria and fungi. Research has shown that is does this by damaging the cell membrane of certain bacteria.
Our Chai Tea goods are rich with notes of cinnamon that instantly awaken feelings of warm hugs and winter baked goods. Cinnamon essential oil is good for diminishing feelings of depression, faintness, and exhaustion in the body. It is also known to relax the body enough to stimulate the libido, making it an effective natural aphrodisiac! Cinnamon is fantastic for seasonal celebrations of warm spices & treats. This scent is also perfect for bringing those iconic winter treat aromas into your bathroom!
Nutmeg essential oil is a key ingredient in marrying the prominent noted of cardamom with the scent of cinnamon in our Chai Teacollection. This oil is amazing for relieving joint pain, elevating mood, regulating menstrual cycles and hormones, as well as boosting cell regeneration for skin and healthy hair.
So many of our limited edition holiday releases use these rich essential oils - but you can also explore our our Chai Tea scent ingredient blend in soap, body scrub, liquid soap, and even skin balm. These blends only come around once a year, so be sure to stock up before they are gone! Luckily, Chai Tea is appropriate all year round.

With the release of our latest Evergreen Tangerine products, I thought it would be fun to celebrate cooler temperature and the incoming holidays with botanical facts. I created Evergreen Tangerine with the idea of bringing winter into the shower - without smelling like a candle. This soap and scrub are inspired by wintery walks through serene evergreen forests and the seasonal brightness of sweet tangy tangerines.
