Did you know you could make your own non toxic and healthy perfume using your Young Living essential oils?
Oh perfume, you’re so fun. Remember when you used to walk through Macy’s and spray the perfume on the little pieces of cardboard, smelling them all, enjoying their bottles? I used to love perfume. The ornate bottles. Using every last drop. I am SO happy I discovered how to create a perfume that is not only nontoxic but therapeutic!
You can actually benefit from wearing a gorgeous signature blend, instead of being harmed from lab-created scents. You can authentically wear the scent of real flowers, and enjoy the high vibes and abundance that nature provides. Subtle bio-energy flows through all living things and can be measured in hertz. And pure plant extracts from essential oils from rose can measure as much as 5x higher than her sister plants, like basil and peppermint. But, either way, when we use real plant extracts, we benefit from their gifts! My new hobby is formulating perfume from my essential oils. 100 % nontoxic, gorgeous scents from the gifts of nature. I have some beautiful vintage-inspired bottles and love a simple spray bottle like pictured to carry in my purse and car.
Why we avoid artificial fragrance?
I know, I know. You don’t want to give up your perfume and don’t want to hear it. I was SO there. And since removing the artificial fragrance from my life, I promise you will be disgusted by heavy fake fragrance soon. When I walk into an office and all I can smell is perfume, all I want to do is run away.
Phthalates in artificial fragrance have been shown to disrupt the delicate endocrine system, reduce sperm count, cause reproductive malformation, and have been linked to cancer. Additionally, studies by the Mount Sinai Children’s Environmental Health Center, link fetal exposure with autism, ADHD, and neurological disorders. Source. When I read about these dangers of fragrance I could never bring myself to buy another product that had fragrance again.
And it’s not just perfume,
Once I learned that just about everything I was purchasing from the store had artificial fragrance added to it, I started doing more research. It turns out the majority of personal care and cleaning products contain toxins you want to avoid too. These ingredients are absorbed into the bloodstream directly through the skin. Everyone needs to do their best to avoid it. Read here how we cut ourselves off from these products with ease! There are so many beautiful ways to start removing toxins from your home and life.
Here are my favorite perfume blends I’ve made from my Young Living essential oils:
Midsummers night dream
Creme de la creme
Woodland forest friends
To make natural perfume, all you need to do is fill your spray bottle of choice with vodka or witch hazel, and add in your essential oils. Isn’t it amazing we have been putting toxic man-made fragrance on us when we had this simple option all along! I love knowing my perfume is actually benefiting me thanks to its pure plant properties.
I know if you make one of these perfumes you will fall in love with the scent and the process just like I did. I linked some pretty perfume bottles for you to make the experience even more fun! These make PERFECT gifts. Add a little info on the essential oils used to describe their benefits to your loved ones.
If you make one of these blends, please tag me on instagram at #recipesandrituals so I can share your beautiful creations!
Peace, love + essential oils!
