5 Benefits of Natural Perfumes You Need To Know…

Did you know mainstream spray perfumes can contain anywhere from 100-350 ingredients?! 

Yep. Crazy. You could say it smells! 

But fear not! Natural perfumes are the scent-er of our attention, and we’re about to tell you why…

Ingredients Hiding In Mainstream Perfumes… 

Okay, we know this section might hurt a little, but we will rip it off like a bandaid! 

Mainstream spray perfumes contain several toxic chemicals, but not just any chemicals… Acetaldehyde and benzene, to name just two, are both identified as carcinogenic. Then there is a chemical to make the scent last longer, diethyl phthalate which causes allergic reactions, dermatitis, and is an active hormone disruptor.

What complicates things is that manufacturers are not required to disclose the ingredients used in the fragrances because they are classified as “intellectual property” so no one can copy their scents. 

Say it with us. THAT STINKS! 

But… there’s a way to smell amazing without the nasties, with essential oil natural perfumes how are these natural perfumes better?

The Benefits of Natural Perfumes…

  1. Crafted with 100% natural ingredients and essential oils 
  2. Hypo-allergenic due to their natural and toxin-free ingredients 
  3. Eco friendly! In the preparation processes of natural fragrances, no harmful chemicals such as petroleum derivatives and phthalates are used. Natural perfumes are gentle in the environment, including water, soil, and air. Woot woot! 
  4. Did you know natural perfumes create an individual scent with your skin? Yes, you’ll have your own personal scent! Synthetic fragrances on the other hand mask the skin and mix unusually with body odours
  5. Aromatherapeutic properties can stabilise your mood and emotions while delivering a unique and personalised fragrance for everyday wear. 

Our Top 3 Favourite Natural & Sustainable Perfumes…

1. Peggy Sue Co Natural Perfumes 

These essential oil-based perfumes are blended with mood-boosting scents; you’ll love how these perfumes make you smell and feel! 

Each of the organic essential oil perfumes in the Peggy Sue line is specially blended to interact with your body’s unique chemistry and produce an unforgettable personal fragrance. 

Your unique scent is then bottled up in a purse-friendly size for on-the-go application with a dripper plug to reduce the need for extra packaging and waste. 

2. IME Solid Perfumes 

Have you ever tried a solid perfume? We love that these babies are spill free!

Not only do they smell great, but combining candelilla wax with shea butter will help protect, hydrate and nourish your skin. 

Did we mention that it comes in a small pop-up tube with an eco wax coating for protection meaning no mess and clutter in your handbag, gym bag and travel bag!! 

Solid perfumes can be applied to your skin directly on the wrist and neck areas, letting the natural warmth of your body melt the wax and release the fragrance. Easy! 

3. Viva La Body Solid Perfumes

Crafted with care, these solid perfumes emerge from the heart of Australia, lovingly handmade with the finest plant-based ingredients. And here's the eco-cherry on top: it arrives in a home compostable tube, keeping these babies in nature's cycle.

Wave goodbye to alcohols, synthetic fragrances, and preservatives, as you say hello to a scent that's as pure as nature, can be! Just remember, since it's a chemical-free affair, a touch more applications might be in order to keep the magic alive throughout your day.

4. Willelaine Purpose Rollers 

The Willelaine Purpose Rollers are refillable and are great on-the-go quick scents to apply for calming, grounding, and soothing your body and mind. While they may not have the long-lasting scent as our other natural perfumes, they make a tremendous mindful swap from mainstream perfume sprays while also offering you their aromatherapeutic benefits. 

However, if you have mainstream perfumes around your home, perhaps from gifts or older ones from the bottom of your handbag, we feel you! 

We’ve switched ours to guest bathroom sprays and just kept them as toilet sprays until they’re used up!
