Since the beginning of time, people have been finding new and innovative ways to use natural perfume. Especially when it comes to status and culture in the days of old. The art of natural perfumery has been a timeless art form and one that is still relevant today.
But what is natural perfumery? Why is it better for your health? And how does it impact your mood and emotions? We’re going to discuss all of these things today as we dive into the fragrant, euphoric, and enticing topic of natural fragrances.
So, what is natural perfumery?
In its most literal definition, natural perfumery is the mastered art of blending fragrances and ingredients that are entirely natural in origin. In doing so, you create aesthetically pleasing natural fragrances that offer a full range of scents for products ranging from delicate, natural perfume to personal and household products.
Why is it better for your health?
One of the most significant ways that natural perfume is better for your health is when used in products that come in contact with your skin. Since your skin absorbs 60 percent of what you put onto it, you want to ensure that anything you’re using doesn’t have hidden and toxic chemicals. As a result, you’re preventing your body from being exposed to these harmful chemicals.
If you are prone to having sensitive skin, then using products made from natural fragrances provides you a truly sensorial experience. You’re able to wear luxury, high-quality perfumes without compromising on your ethics and jeopardizing your health. Even if allergens from natural sources must be mentioned on the packaging, it is rare to face skin or global allergies from linalool and other natural chemical molecules.
Many natural perfume artists ensure that their products are never tested on animals. So that you can trust they’re not only created organically but helping contribute to the safety of animals and the environment.
Natural perfumes vs. synthetic fragrances
When choosing between fragrances that are made using synthetics or natural essential oils, the choice is clear from the beginning.
Have you ever wondered why you use essential oils for specific ailments to increase your mood and relaxation? This is because these natural, organic fragrances have both emotional and physical healing properties found within them. Natural perfumery is built on the foundation of these essential oils, covering everything from calming, energy-enhancing to mood-lifting and relaxing effects.
Synthetic fragrances are made by combining harmful chemicals, even pesticides or toxins, that can leave your skin irritated while also damaging the environment. Perfumes crafted from these synthetics can also leave you with migraines, nausea, and even lung irritation.
When perfume makers mix two different perfumes, it can leave a highly unpleasant smell. Still, organic perfumes made from high-quality essential oils can be worn separately or even layered to create your unique aroma.
Whether you’re just starting with essential oils or you’ve been wearing them for years, understanding the art of natural perfumery provides an excellent way to discover your own unique scent.
Using essential oils to craft natural perfumes, you’re able to be a part of protecting the environment while ensuring your health for years to come.
