Features and What is Essential Faith ?

Essential Faith was started in Venice, California in 2006 and over 12 years later has been featured and used by celebrities such as Singer, Jhene Aiko in Into The Gloss and by Actress, Hilary Duff in ENews’ beauty segment called “The Kit.” Other publications include Blyss Cloud, She’s in the Glow, Mom Etc, Rachel Zoe, and Beauty Habit.

EF is derived completely from natural ingredients making them perfect for the skin. They are also “free of paragons, phthalates, formaldehyde, and include nothing non-toxic inside” (Source: It is not to be confused with a perfume bottle because as mentioned before, EF oils are 100% alcohol free.

So why name is Essential Faith? Faith according to means “confidence or trust in a person or thing.” Faith is a very universal word which can be interpreted however you would like it to be. Faith is something we should all have in our lives, and especially during a time right now where the world is still facing a global pandemic. It’s good to have faith in anything you do whether it’s religious, or with anything you do in life. You should believe you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.


When I received my Essential Faith package in the mail, I was so excited to open it and see how these oils compared to my other daily rotations of perfume bottles. Inside were three cards, one with information on questions or if I wanted to get in contact with the Founder, and then two other with the pictures of the first Essential Faith bottle which was produced.

Next, was the actual two bottles of the oils. The first scent which was the very first original one and then their newest called Aura. When you receive the oils, they come in a little gift back tied with a ribbon.

Essential Faith Scent

Mixing a bit of a feminine scent with a light vanilla touch, I’ve already been using this scent for the past week and love how it still lingered even on my day out to the city.

Aura Scent

Aura is described as a mix of their “Essential Faith” scent with hints of more vanilla. This is perfect for the holidays coming up or a night out on the town.

Final Thoughts

After unpacking both of the the oils, trying them on a day out, and seeing how great they fit almost anywhere, I can say I really do love these two scents and can’t wait to swap around in my everyday rotation for what I will put on. Not only are they alcohol and cruelty free, and vegan but it really is different from other scents you would find on the market. If you want to get some compliments and take this on the go with you, try out Essential Faith.
