Learn how to make your own divine fragrances with essential oils
Before we dive in and learn a bit about how easy it is to make your own perfume with essential oils. Let’s find out The Truth about Perfume, if you’re like me you’ll be shocked and highly motivated to make your own ‘Pure-fumes’.
Does perfume give you a headache, itchy eyes, sensitive nose or even respiratory issues? I’m not surprised if the answer is yes.
Synthetic fragrances are derived from petrochemicals and are found in most products we buy.
The International Fragrance Association in France has a list of 3059 chemicals that can be used to make synthetic fragrances. Synthetic perfumes can be irritating to the eyes, skin and lungs and can contain a number of allergen components that can cause allergic contact dermatitis, with an estimation of 1-2% of the population having fragrance-related allergies. WHAT?!
Synthetic perfumes are also detrimental to the environment, and are not removed during wastewater treatment, which is a major cause for concern considering their high aquatic toxicity.
Why are these things even legal? They don’t even have to disclose what’s in their fragrance, it’s protected under the “Trade Secret Act’ They’re making us sick & ruining Mother Earth.

The Art of Blending
Blending essential oils is a beautiful art. It’s the alchemy of divine plant extracts coming together to synergise and offer therapeutic benefits to the individual. With a little bit of knowledge and understanding of what oils blend well together plus a experimentation and creativity you’ll be a divine oils alchemist in not time.
Mixing perfume, like music, is made from notes. When these notes are in harmony they come together to create a divine aroma. The beautiful thing is you can create more than one signature scent for yourself, depending on your mood or the occasion.
