The art of making perfumes dates back to antiquity and evidence suggests it began in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. Many Egyptians adorned their tombs with perfume to ensure an aromatic spirit in the afterlife. Throughout history men and women have used perfume or burned incense for sacred rituals and to self beautify.
Traditionally all perfumes were naturally derived, containing essential oils, plant or wood resins and even secretions from certain animals.
With the advent of modern technologies, scientists were able to isolate particular chemical constituents such as vanillin from vanilla, to create synthetic substitutes of real oils. The synthetic varieties of chemicals were cheaper to manufacture and the perfume industry exploded. Over the years, many of us became used to the noxious smell of someone wearing strong perfume in the office or out in public. For some, physical symptoms such as headaches arose from these synthetic chemicals being sprayed
on our bodies. Luckily, as we move into greater awareness of toxic and synthetic chemicals we also discover true artisan perfumers who are doing it the old fashion way…Naturally and Organically!!!
Organic perfumes are made with organic essential oils, resins, and spices and usually combined with certified organic alcohol, fractioned coconut or jojoba oil. Since the perfumes are natural, they absorb into your skin more quickly and do not “hover over” your body like a cloud. With natural perfumes, you don’t smell someone a mile away; more over; the scent of a natural perfume bonds with a person’s unique body chemistry to give a natural and distinct scent just for you! Here are some of our favorites:
