“While I am not a big cosmetics wearer, I do love perfume and so does my daughter but we both have problems wearing it. Perfume leaves us with a runny nose, red puffy eyes, itchy skin and shortness of breath.

I have always been very passionate about natural products, many people may not get what all the fuss is about – especially when it comes to perfumes. However, considering the skin is the largest organ in the body, and over 60% of what you put on it can be absorbed into your bloodstream, other organs and cells, most of us do not think twice about spraying a commercial perfume on our skin which contains a long list of unfamiliar and harmful ingredients.

Benefits of Natural Perfumes

One of the best benefits a natural perfume can provide is just that – it’s 100% natural! Completely free from pesticides and chemicals which, when contained in cosmetics, can be absorbed into the skin and bloodstream. Synthetic smells derived from petrochemicals can cause migraines, nausea, lung irritation and skin sensitivity. With a natural perfume, there is no need to worry about any synthetic hangovers or harmful effects.

Healing Properties

Natural perfumes are made using natural essential oils rather than synthetics to create a fragrance that not only smells amazing but also has many emotional and physical healing properties. Different scents can be calming, energy-enhancing, relaxing or mood-lifting and can have a significant impact on one’s wellbeing.

Cruelty Free

Unlike perfumes which contain synthetic products, natural perfumes are not tested on animals. Ingredients in mass-produced fragrances include phthalates and musk which have led to the terrible mistreatment of animals.

Nuanced Fragrance

Organic perfumes made from essential oils have a rich, nuanced scent that strengthens over time. It is also possible to layer a natural perfume to create different scents, depending on your mood. While synthetic perfumes mask the skin, natural perfumes mix with the oils on the body to create a personalised scent on the wearer – which is why a natural perfume can smell differently from one person to the next! How cool is that?

Chemical Free
