Welcome to the TERRESSENTIALS web site! We hand-craft a wide range of certified organic products: organic skin care, organic hair care, organic baby products, and other goods made with certified organic herbs and certified organic essential oils. USDA Certified Organic!

Sir Adolph-William Bouguereau. Evening Mood - 1882. Terressentials isn't like other companies. We only use ingredients that the USDA permits in certified organic food. We proudly list the ingredients of all of our products so you can scrutinize them and compare them to products by other manufacturers. Many of our products aren't just "organic" by the USDA standards — every single ingredient is USDA certified organic.

If you're an organic consumer, you might be a little jaded, and we don't blame you. It seems that the internet, organic stores and organic magazines are bursting nowadays with "certified organic" this and "100% natural" that for modern living. But what is organic? When it comes to skin care, body care, shampoos, lotions and other personal care products, what is the definition of organic? Does it mean that a product meets USDA organic standards, or is 100% organic, or is certified organic? Sorry folks: when it comes to body care, if you don't see the USDA Certified Organic seal, the word "organic" doesn't mean anything. The important thing is the ingredients.

Instead of stearic acid or cetyl alcohol, we use certified organic cocoa butter and certified organic shea butter. Instead of ammonium lauryl sulfate or decyl polyglucose, we use mild, traditional cold-process castile soap made from certified organic olive oil. And we don't slip in any funny stuff in the fine print at the end of the list of ingredients. The end result is true certified organic skin care, body care and hair care products of unprecedented quality — that's what our customers tell us.

You can read about what we've been up to in this feature article from the Washington Post. In addition to fighting for high organic standards and crafting fresh, truly organic products, we also operate our own organic stores and raise organic herbs in our own organic gardens in Middletown, MD. If you're in the area, we'd love to have you pay us a visit!
