Hygge Collection Oils and Extracts

hygge oils and extracts

As temperatures start to drop, your skin will need some extra TLC. We have new oils and extracts that will keep it hydrated all fall and winter long.

They’re part of the Hygge Collection, which includes comforting scents and giftable packaging. It’s inspired by the Danish concept of hygge (hoo-gah), which is the everyday pursuit of happiness, comfort, and connection. Learn more about the oils below.

Lingonberry Seed Oil
Lingonberries are native to forests in Norway, Sweden, and Finland. They’re a staple in Scandinavian cuisine. They’re quite tart, so they’re often mixed into oatmeal or made into jam.

The oil extracted from the seeds feels amazing. It has a silky and lightweight texture that leaves the skin moisturized but not greasy. It’s also packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidants. We love it in handmade soap, lotion, and balm.

Lingonberry seed oil has a light yellow color and an earthy scent. In the finished product, that scent won’t be as noticeable.

It has a shelf life of 2 years. The usage rates are:

  • Cold process soap: 5-15%
  • Lotions and creams: 1-15%
  • Balms: 1-10%

Oat Oil
Oats are amazing for skincare. Hydrolyzed oats are a moisturizing addition to lotion, and colloidal oatmeal has a silky texture that feels amazing in face masks.

Oat oil is no exception. Once you try it in handmade soap, lotion, or scrub, you won’t be able to get enough of it. It has a lightweight and non-greasy consistency. It has more than 35% omega fatty acids, as well as high levels of antioxidants, ceramides, and vitamin E. Those nutrients keep the skin hydrated and smooth all day long.

This oil has an orange-yellow color and nutty scent. When used at 15% or less and with a strong fragrance, the scent won’t be as noticeable.

Turmeric Shea Butter
In India, turmeric has been used in food and medicine for thousands of years. In the U.S., it has become increasingly popular in the past few years. It contains curcumin, which is a strong antioxidant. You can add turmeric powder to DIY bath products for a natural color and mild exfoliation.

This product is a skin-loving blend of turmeric root extract, shea butter, and jojoba oil. It has a slightly softer consistency than regular shea butter, but it has similar moisturizing properties. We love the non-greasy feeling in DIY lotion and body butter.

Turmeric shea butter has a light yellow color and an earthy, slightly spicy scent. In finished products, the scent won’t be as noticeable.

Liquid Cashmere
We can’t wait for you to try this new product. It comes from the keratin fibers of cashmere wool through a process called hydrolysis, where water is used to break down the bonds of a substance. The result is a water-soluble liquid that’s perfect for DIY lotion, shampoo, and conditioner. Liquid cashmere adds a moisturizing and silky feeling, and it also helps prevent hair breakage and split ends.

The additive has a tan color and a distinct nutty odor that’s slightly sweet. When used at 5% or less and with a strong fragrance, the scent won’t be as noticeable.

Pumpkin Extract
You need this for all your fall projects. It’s made of pumpkin extract and fractionated coconut oil. That combination creates a lightweight and moisturizing feeling on the skin, and it also helps it easily mix into DIY soap, lotion, scrub, and bath bombs. You only need a little bit of pumpkin extract to add something special to your projects.
