Are commercial perfumes really that bad? Here's what you need to know:1. Over 60% of what is applied to your skin is absorbed into the blood stream.
2. 95% of chemicals in most commercial fragrances and perfumes are synthetics compounds made from petroleum and natural gases, which are toxic to our body.
3. Anywhere between 80%-100% of a formula in commercial fragrances are made of these synthetic ingredients.
4. There are 3 ways your body can “absorb” these chemicals: direct application to the skin, contact with fragranced items (picking up the bottle or shaking hands), inhaling chemicals in the environment.
5. Environmental Working Group (EWG) researchers found more than 75 percent of products listing the ingredient “fragrance” contained phthalates (THAL-ates) which have been shown to disrupt hormone activity, reduce sperm counts, and cause reproductive malformation and have been linked to liver and breast cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Furthermore, there is evidence linking fetal exposure to ADHD, autism, and neurological disorders.
Why Natural Fragrances are Better:
- Using natural fragrances made out of essential oils not only smell wonderful (much better than the unnatural chemical smells of most fragrances), but they also have incredible health and therapeutic benefits.
- Rose: Natural mood enhancer, reduces anger, anxiety and has been known to engender feelings of well-being and happiness.
- Lavender: Reduces anxiety and emotional stress, improves sleep and is a powerful antioxidant. It is used to reduce acne, improve eczema and psoriasis, and other skin conditions while alleviating headaches.
- Vanilla: Anti-depressant properties aids in lifting moods. Helps to reduce inflammation and protects against free-radicals and infection. Also known to be an aphrodisiac!
