Manufactum Essential Oil
We have developed the body care products of our in-house exclusive series with two pharmacists who manufacture them especially for Manufactum - according to proven recipes as well as new in-house developments. They are based on natural ingredients of the best, purest quality, and contain only what serves the purpose in question. On petrochemical-based raw materials and synthetic fragrances, dyes and preservatives, we do completely without.
Lemon oil is obtained directly from the fruit peel and should be used exclusively in organic quality. It has a refreshing effect and also has a strong mental stimulating effect.
The genie in the bottle. Essential oils.
The use of essential oils dates back to the ancient civilizations of Egypt and Babylon. There, people first discovered the sensory, physiological and physical complexity of the concentrated, often extremely fragrant plant ingredients and made them useful. The broad applicability and the natural origin of the essences should not, however, lead to careless handling.
The respective manufacturer plays a key role in the purity of the essential oils, because the quality of the ingredients and the care in production can hardly be determined without elaborate analytics. Our essential oils are pharmacy bottled, we bring them in an (unusually) large container of 30 ml. In combination with a base oil, for example our body oil with macadamia nut, apricot kernel or jojoba oil, they are ideal for making your own body, bath and massage oils; they should be mixed in a ratio of 1:50, i.e. one part essential oil to 50 parts base oil. To dilute with shampoo or neutral shower gel, add 10-30 drops to the base of 250 ml.
Body Care Products by Manufactum. With Ingredients in Pharmacopoeia Quality.
We have developed a body care series according to our specifications and are cooperating for this project with two pharmacists from North Rhine-Westphalia. Based on well-thought-out recipes, all products of the series comply with our maxim: reduced to the essentials. Our partners see to it that the products of our series solely contain what serves the particular purpose. Moreover, although they are no pharmaceutical preparations, most of their ingredients – somewhat unusual for body care products – are of pharmacopoeia quality according to the current German and European Pharmacopoeia; both officinal collections set high standards in terms of purity, enrichment and freshness. Our range of products is small but well-considered, and we add only a few articles each year. Partly, the formulations derive from old officinal formulae and antiquarian pharmacopoeias; partly, we present new in-house developments based on proven elements and compounds. We attach great importance to natural ingredients and therefore completely dispense with petrochemical-based raw materials as well as synthetic fragrances, dyes and preservatives.
Our essential oils are unblended and undiluted; therefore, take care and dose them very carefully. Especially when it comes to the use with pregnant women, weakened persons, and children, caution is required. In the case of small children, the application is not recommended at all.

The fresh, camphor-like scent of eucalyptus oil has a clarifying, air-purifying and uplifting effect - as a bath additive as in the fragrance lamp. It should be used with caution on children.
The essential oil of spruce needle has long been a popular ingredient in bath additives and oils. It is relaxing and clarifying and also performs well in the fragrance lamp.
The strength of the mint essential oil depends on the menthol content, its actual active ingredient. Menthol is also pleasantly refreshing because it stimulates the cold receptors, leaving a cool sensation on the skin. Our mint oil is extracted from the plant known as Japanese or Chinese mint. It has a much higher menthol content than peppermint, which is more common in Europe, so the effect of Japanese mint oil is even more clarifying and cooling. Mix in a ratio of 1:50 to perfume a base oil.
The spicy oil of mountain pine is highly valued for its balsamic scent. It is popular as an additive to relaxing full baths and sauna infusions.
Lavender oil is known for its strong fragrance and is found in many perfumes and soaps. It is one of the few essential oils that can be applied undiluted to the skin.
Soaps, body lotions and perfumes with clove oil have always enjoyed great popularity. The reason is the spicy, exotic scent of the oil of the "little nails". The oil is said to be physically warming and slightly euphoric.
Orange oil is extracted directly from the peels of the fruit. Accordingly, it develops a refreshing and invigorating scent, like that released when peeling a fresh, fully ripe orange.
In Europe, there are numerous wild-growing mints. However, this essential oil comes from only one species, peppermint, which is characterised by a higher menthol content than other mints.
The spicy rosemary oil is refreshing, stimulating and uplifting. Not for young children, not to be used during pregnancy and not to be used if you have high blood pressure.
