Let me whisper to you… your perfume is a secret poison…

I remember my first bottle of perfume as if it was yesterday. I was a young girl and my mother bought me a beautiful blue bottle of perfume. Blue Grass was the name. It made me feel all grown up!

Unfortunately, perfume today isn’t the same as it was. When regulations on products started, the perfumers were acquitted of having to list all the ingredients on the label; they claimed that it would give away their recipes. They were allowed to only list ‘fragrance’. That could be anything. In the beginning al was fine as the ‘fragrance’ was a mixture of plant oils. In our day and age however, ‘fragrance’ is a dangerous, uncontrolled cocktail of chemicals, many of them dangerous to your health.

Your skin is your biggest organ. Your skin will absorb whatever is next to it. You can test this for yourself. Take a clove of garlic and cut it in half. Use the cut side and rub it around on the sole of your foot. Within about 20 minutes, you will taste garlic in your mouth.

So what is really in perfume? More than 95% of the so called ‘fragrance’ consist of petrochemicals such as benzene derivatives, aldehydes, phthalates, and a slew of other known toxins. Suddenly it doesn’t sound that nice anymore does it? Many of these ingredients have an adverse effect on hormone production, and they are often carcinogenic as well. And then we wonder why sickness and disease are increasing at such a staggering rate.

Fortunately, we have an alternative. Actually, we have many!

You can make your oil perfume with a few basic ingredients and some essential oil. You will need the following:

  • Olive Oil
  • Wheatgerm Oil to act as preservative
  • Some essential oils

A roller ball bottle is perfect for this job. Add 10-15 drops of essential oils of your choice to the bottle. Top it up with olive oil and wheatgerm oil in equal amounts.

Here are some combinations you could try:

For a light citrus perfume:

  • Grapefruit
  • Sweet Orange
  • Mandarin
  • Petitgrain
  • Neroli

For a floral perfume:

  • Lavender
  • Jasmine
  • Rose
  • Neroli
  • Ylang-Ylang

Here are a list of articles you can read on this topic. Trust me, it’s worth your time. Read them. If you want to make a better choice in perfume, let me know! I will help you.

  1. […] the last couple of years. Now if you missed a previous blog about the toxicity of perfume, read it HERE before you carry on, as the same scenario applies to men’s fragrance […]

  2. Bravo, what necessary phrase…, a remarkable idea

  3. I’m reaⅼly loving the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?

    A small numbeг of my blog audience have complained about my site not operatіng correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Chrome. Do you have аny suggestions to help fix
    this problem?

    1. I had no complaints so far. When I had a big online shop a while back however, Explorer was terrible and complaints were many. Explorer doesn’t to DB indexing which makes the shopping process slow and cumbersome if you have a lot of items in the shop. Give me your site address, I would love to visit you.
