The one thing you forgot to switch when greening your beauty routine

Posted by Micki Mutch on

A lot of us have made the switch to natural skin care, makeup and even dental care. But one cosmetic we usually forget to switch over is our perfume. Have you done this yet?

It’s a tricky item to switch as most of us have grown accustomed to our luxury synthetic perfumes. But there are SO many benefits to switching to botanicals. Here are the top 3 benefits for going au natural with your Eau de toilet.

1. It’s better for your body

Do you know what’s in your current perfume? Didn’t think so! Because the ingredients don’t need to be listed beyond the all-encompassing term “parfum” or “fragrance”. According to the Environmental Working Group, who track studies on cosmetic ingredients and their impact on our health, the word "fragrance" or "parfum" on the product label represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants such as diethyl phthalate. Many of the chemicals used to create synthetic fragrance are known human toxicants that can affect our immune system and cause allergies.


2. It’s better for your brain

So why surround yourself with toxic particles when you can use plant power to not only smell great but even enhance your productivity or ability to relax? Studies show that inhaling peppermint while reading boosts memory retention and focus. While lavender has been proven to help your brain relax and calm. So a botanical perfume that features these ingredients actually has mental benefits and none of the harm of synthetic perfumes.

3. It’s better for those around you

Do you work in an office that has “Scent-Free Zone” posters up? If so, it usually means at least one of your coworkers has an allergy or sensitivity to synthetic fragrance chemicals. In most cases of fragrance allergies, people aren’t allergic to natural essential oils. So next time you leave the house, apply some botanical perfume to leave a mood-enhancing, focus-inducing afterglow everywhere you go,  instead of an aftermath of allergies.

We love roller perfumes for their easy application and smaller size which makes it possible to have a fragrance for every mood. Try our new perfume, Winter’s Night to add some mystique to your essence. Sultry, sweet and slightly smoky vetiver connects with black pepper and a smooth finish of lavender.

Let us know if you have any trouble greening up your fragrance. Customer perfume blends are always available.
