4 natural perfumes better than the traditional ones

Do you know the difference between the perfume you’re buying at the chemist or shop, and the natural perfumes created by smaller brands? It’s time to find out. 

While most of us don’t think much of that small spray of perfume each morning, if you’re using a traditional perfume it could be doing more harm than good. You’re inhaling whatever’s in the perfume, and that is entering your body and bloodstream within seconds. Have you considered what ingredients are in traditional perfumes? Perhaps it’s time to think about it.

What is fragrance?

Fragrance can have so many meanings, but essentially it comes from either petroleum or plants. 

Pure fragrances are essential oils from plants, flowers and raw materials. Synthetic fragrances are secret chemicals that are actually chemically closer to gasoline than they are to flowers. 

Under the law of a ‘Trade Secret’, fragrance companies are allowed to hide their ingredient list and not disclose it to consumers. And if we don’t know what in our perfumes, how do we know what we are putting on, and eventually in, our bodies? 

Alternatives to traditional perfumes.

If you have been using synthetic perfumes for awhile, it may take a period of adjustment when converting to a natural perfume, as they smell completely different. You will be able to notice the pure essential oils and your senses will adjust quite quickly. After time you may even be able to tell when someone else is wearing a synthetic perfume and find it quite overwhelming! 

We want you to know there are alternatives and there are some amazing companies out there producing beautiful pure fragrances created from all natural ingredients.

Remember that natural perfumes don’t last on your skin as long as the traditional ones, but if that’s the only downfall then it’s a good trade to make. Plus, many of the brands have travel or sample options, which are a great handbag essential to grab and reapply throughout the day.
