We love a fragrant world at Tuli a Tuli.  We'd love to scent it completely because we know that pleasant smell can do far more than just affect the sensory cells.

Behind a beautiful scent are Terpenes – diverse class of organic compounds that are plant based.  They serve to communicate with the environment in nature. Plants either attract insects or, on the contrary, repel pests sensitive to these fragrances. In the same way they affect our nose. Nose registers them and sends a signal to the brain, which evaluates whether they are pleasant or not, hence coordinates other processes that stimulate body and mind.

Thanks to the steam distillation process, they are the primary constituents of the essential oils that are widely used in medicine, natural healing, cosmetics or in drugstores.  

In our products, the use of natural essential oils is significant. With their help, the body cleanse harmonizes your body, gives it a feeling of freshness, relaxes after a tough day, or even repels stinging insects if you choose to take a walk in nature after a bath.
