Mother Nature’s Perfume

Who doesn’t love a beautiful perfume!!

I go back many years ago, when I learnt that perfumes had nasty chemical ingredients in them so my current perfumes at the time went out, and I went on a search to find what was safe and I looked at what our grandma’s used. I discovered that perfumes originally were made from natural things like flower extracts and herbs.

At the same time I did an aromatherapy course and learnt the power of what pure unadulterated oils could do for our health and well being.

I also learnt that the fragrance industry may be begin with bouquets of flower abstracts but it’s the addition of toxic chemicals that made it a lot cheaper & this moves it away from the real thing.

How sad I was when I learnt what really was going on. Perfume manufacturers don’t want their competition or even you to know what’s in their products. So they came up with a clever way to keep their ingredients a secret.

You see the TGA requires most industries to clearly list their ingredients on their product labels. This offers protection for you and I. But the perfume industry petitioned some time ago to let them keep this information hidden from consumers by saying they were trade secrets.

So came chemicals like acetone. This is a nasty, as it’s the same toxic component that’s in paint thinner… something you’d never put on your skin! Along with many other chemicals that cause skin irritants, shortness of breath, linked with a certain cancers, endocrine disruptors, nervous disorders and many other major concerns were added to these potions.

essential oils for perfumeI started making my own nearly twenty years ago and as I said above I looked to Mother Nature & I would love you to enjoy a sample today, along with one of my formulations for you to make for yourself.

I love to spritz my clothes even now rather than my skin but with a natural one either is fine.

You can make your own sweet-smelling signature scent with essential oils. This will be natural and safe to wear… and they smell amazing.

On your next day off, try blending this & have fun experimenting.

  1. In a large container melt 2 tsp. grated beeswax. Add 2 tsp. jojoba oil and mix. Or for a liquid fragrance you can use a Geranium hydrosol as the base, which I have opted for in the sample so it’s easy to roll on.
  2. Then add 2 tsp. of jojoba oil and mix.
  3. In another small container, mix approximately 20 drops of sweet orange essential oil, 15 drops of ylang-ylang and 10 drops lavender 8 drops of Patchouli
  4. Remove from heat, quickly add essential oil mix and pour into clean container, (for the beeswax base a small lip balm container), or with the base as geranium hydrosol a brown bottle as the essential oils retains it’s value.

Enjoy wearing and note the comments you will receive!!!



Is there a Nasty Smell in your Bathroom Cabinet (Synthetic Fragrances)?

Would you wash your face in paint thinner? No of course not! The sad thing is you could be doing this without realizing it!

What’s in your bathroom cabinet? Is there paint thinner in your makeup remover?

synthetic vs natural sprayWashing your face and getting that last layer of makeup off is something we all do every day… but there may be a hidden cost to this nightly ritual. Truth is, many of these beauty products you use to remove makeup and dirt are full of alcohol and chemicals that actually act like paint thinner.

These chemicals hide behind scientific names like “ethoxylated alcohol” and “butylated hydroxytoluene.” But what they do is cause redness, burning and dry spots – the same effect you get with corrosive solvents like paint thinner.

What’s worse is that when you use them every day, they accelerate the effects of ageing.

Do your products have a strong aroma?

natural scentsAgain chances are it could be a chemical. When I was facing my health challenges with cancer cells my research showed me that the perfume I used had chemical compounds. Oh dear! I thought even my perfume has to go (aahhh!) so I immediately replaced it with aromatherapy pure oils, and made sure they were pure essential oils.

To maintain healthy skin always choose products that don’t include alcohol or harsh chemicals. Instead always make sure natural ingredients are in the skin care products you’ll be putting on your face or spraying on yourself.

We need to check the labels & check the deodorizers in your home and bathrooms – are they synthetic?
We always get to choose, so I encourage you to empower yourself with knowledge.

Scent is still a powerful force of attraction.

aromatherapy candlesIt can lift your mood, calm you down and help you focus – depending on the particular fragrance. That’s because your “sense of smell” is located in your brain. It’s closely attached to your memory and can influence your mood and thoughts.

What’s more, scent has the potential to benefit not only your emotional well being, but also your physical well-being. So very important to know it is compatible to our human chemistry.

That’s why more and more people are using the power of essential oils for healing. You would have heard of this treatment method referred to as aromatherapy. Aromatherapy offers natural relief from various health concerns (both mental and physical) that life can hand you on a daily basis.
