Perfume. Nature’s Delight
There’s something magical about our sense of smell. Have you ever walked past someone wearing the very first perfume you owned and felt the excitement of your adolescent years come rushing back? Or smelt the salt of the ocean and been taken back to those endless summer holidays in the sun? Our sense of smell is so closely associated with memory that the slightest hint can arouse powerful emotions almost instantaneously.
It stops being amazing when cosmetic companies fill their bottles with cheap, harmful chemicals. These chemicals are being absorbed and inhaled by millions of people everyday. You can read all about the toxic effects of synthetic fragrances here.
Why coat yourself in chemicals when there are options out there including natural ingredients such as herbs, distilled flower essences, plant extracts and essential oils. Essential oils in perfume can be grouped in:
Base Notes, including: cedarwood, frankincense, ginger, helichrysum, myrrh, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla, vetiver.
Middle Notes, including: chamomile, cinnamon, clove, geranium, jasmine, neroli, nutmeg, pine, fir, rose, rosemary and ylang ylang.
Top Notes, including: lemon, orange, grapefruit, lime, tangerine, bergamot, eucalyptus and peppermint.
Using a mixture of these notes gives you a well rounded, long lasting scent. Some natural perfumist’s use a water/alcohol base, others use an oil base.
Once you find your ‘signature scent’ it can be hard to break away from it. It becomes synonymous with who you are, right? A part of your personality? I get it. But is it really worth compromising your health for those synthetic nasties? Why not make your own and try scent mixes such as:
- Floral (rose, geranium, lavender, jasmine)
- Woodsy (cedar wood, fir)
- Earthy (vetiver, patchouli)
- Beachy (lotus, mandarin, sea buckthorn)
- Minty (peppermint, spearmint)
- Spicy (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg)
- Fruity (orange, bergamot, lemon)
