Using essential oils as perfume is not only genius but a natural alternative to smelling great without chemicals. Everyone has their favorite perfumes that they cannot live without, right? I used to be the same way until I learned how toxic they are, as well as other things we use on our bodies every day.
Don’t believe me? Just check out EWG.org to learn more about toxins in products.
More about that perfume…perfume is a combination of synthetic chemicals that create different scents. One bottle of perfume can contain hundreds or even thousands of toxic chemicals.
The same goes for anything that contains fragrance like lotions, shampoo, baby wipes, etc. Check your labels and beware of the word “fragrance” because that one simple word can actually mean thousands of chemicals that we are not aware of.
Not to mention, perfumes can be very expensive! Women and even men spend hundreds of dollars each year on perfume.
But I get it…you still want to smell nice for work, meetings, dates, you name it, no one enjoys being around a smelly person haha.
Here’s the deal, by using essential oils as perfume, you are eliminating many toxins!
My absolute favorite “perfume” is Joy Essential Oil. It is a delightful blend of Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Lemon, Coriander, Tangerine, Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Palmarosa, and Rose essential oils that harmonize for a sweet, joyful aroma.
For those who like floral scents, this one is it! Not only does it smell amazing, it has many health benefits when you breathe in the aroma. These benefits include balancing emotions and uplifting the spirit.
I also like that I can safely use it around my kids. I certainly don’t want my breastfeeding baby getting a sniff of toxic perfumes every time I feed her.
There are even options for men! YL Shutran Essential Oil is formulated for men to boost masculinity and confidence.
