Artificial vs. Natural Fragrances

Updated: Jan 17

What Your Nose KNOWS...

When I first started making my sprays, many people said the smell was very “delicate” or “gentle”….some couldn’t smell them at all. I was shocked because they were quite strong to me. I started doing some research and thought I’d do a quick post to share information about the impact of artificial fragrances in our lives….our numbed sense of smell is only the tip of the iceberg. More seriously, these artificial fragrances can affect our physical health as well!

If you are like me, you work hard to read food labels and feed your families high quality and organic. But what about the non-food products your family uses daily? Perfumes, lotions, soap, hair products, washing detergent….these are just a few household items that are filled with artificial fragrances.

What’s wrong with artificial fragrances? Well, a lot...

Most personal care products are filled with artificial fragrances, mainly petroleum based chemicals, that are known toxic carcinogens. These chemicals absorb into our bloodstream directly through our skin or are inhaled. Exposure to artificial fragrance chemicals can cause headaches, eye/nose/throat irritation, forgetfulness, loss of coordination, nausea, neurotoxic issues, respiratory distress, birth defects, cancer, asthma, and more…..artificial fragrances are TOXIC!

Manufacturers prefer to use these artificial fragrances because they are cheaper, stronger and last longer and, sadly, that’s what we as customers are asking for, right? Products that are strong and last long….and all for a rock-bottom, affordable price.

In this modern world, we may not be able to avoid all artificial fragrances all the time, but we can make smarter choices to limit our exposure to them as much as possible.

Stay mindful...

In case you were wondering, the fragrances of ZEN+MAGIC vibe and energy sprays are created using ONLY essential oils (primarily plant extracts). Essential oils are extracted by pressing or steaming flowers, leaves, fruit or bark to capture the concentrated aroma compound...100% all natural substances.
