The Elora Soap Company was founded by John & Karen Kimpel in 1987 in Elora, Ontario, Canada. Working from their century home John & Karen make their own products, grow their own herbs and run a retail storefront. All of their products are 100% natural and meant to heal the soul as well as your skin. Their line of pure essential oils and fragrance oils are top notch and of the best quality. The Fragrance Oil line is named as such due to the addition of Jojoba or Almond Oil as a base carrier. which is done in an effort to keep costs down or because the oil without dilution would be a thick tar like mass. Rest assured that there are not any carcinogenics or synthetics in this line.
