5 Reasons You Should Switch to Perfumed Oils.
Finding a signature scent or a few that work for you is a fabulous experience.
A perfumed oil is even better.
During my trip to Prague last year, I stumbled upon a purveyor of natural beauty products and fell in love with perfumed rose oil.
I’ve never looked back.
Here are 5 reasons that perfumed oils rock:
- They are easier on your skin.
After suffering for years with weird dark spots on my neck and chest, I finally had an ‘A-Ha!’ moment when my facialist pointed out that the spots were due to my perfume’s reaction with my skin and the sun. After quickly switching to perfumed oil, and applying sunscreen daily, the spots are gone. And don’t forget that most perfumed contain alcohol which is drying and can irritate your skin.
2. They do their job efficiently.
While essential and perfumed oils usually come in teeny, tiny bottles, most are ‘roll-on’. As a result, you end up applying less to get the same effect as a spray would. And you can control how much or little you want to apply. They are also not diluted with fillers and preservatives like perfumes, so they actually last longer.
3. They cost you less money.
Just think about all the millions of dollars spent on marketing and advertising perfume. And for what? A bottle filled with mostly irritants such as alcohol? Pick up a bottle of high quality essential or perfumed oil at a fraction of the cost, support a worthy natural product brand and save some moula!
4. They are socially friendly.
Most people don’t want to be accosted with your perfume. So much so, that many offices and public spaces deny the use of heavy fragrances. Perfumed oils are much less aggressive because they are not sprayed on. They stay close to your skin, wherever you apply them, and are still effective enough to smell pretty when someone is lucky enough to come close :)
5. They are easier on our home planet.
Much like #3 above, perfumed oils are not big business, so they aren’t pumped with excessive marketing, packaging and branding. This makes them easier on Mother Earth. They are also much more natural, especially if you get your hands on organic oil. This makes them a win for everyone!
