scent navigation: resins & incense

Earth Goddess Body Shop original scents are arranged into ‘houses’ for easier selection. Each house contains like-scented natural fragrances.

Keep in mind, our fragrances are made from 100% real plant matter, meaning the (fake) sandalwood, dragon’s blood & frankincense you smell in the store differs greatly from our more ‘green’ scents.

Below you will find our resinous & incense scents.
