Simply Organic and Natural Perfumes and Fragrances

May 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 253

The sense of smell is one of the strongest and most emotionally impacting senses on the body. Have you ever smelled the sweet smell of home-brewed coffee and immediately had a flashback to a simpler time when your mom would always have a fresh brew ready when you were a kid? The concept applies with almost every smell. Specific aromas trigger various responses from the nervous system and it's because of this effect that people can be defined by their affect on another person's olfactory sense. We as humans are defined by our smells, and since we don't always produce the most pleasant scents, the perfume and cologne businesses are in a constant state of economic equilibrium. However, in a world where social image is key, it is necessary to know the most efficient way to go about using perfumes or colognes. Nowadays, it can be seen that there is an obvious advantage to using much more natural, organic scents, rather than the odd concoctions that can damage and wear down the skin, or fade in the blink of an eye.

Most perfumes use stronger alcohols as a base to make a fragrance much more powerful. However, there is a downside to using these powerful alcohols. The scent tends to fade much quicker, with an average lasting time of around 2 hours. Furthermore, strong alcohols irritate and dry the skin. It would seem, therefore, that paying hundreds of dollars for powerful odors is a waste of money, as it only lasts a mediocre amount of time and damages rather than helps the skin. This is why natural fragrances are beginning to be viewed by many as a larger "bang for your buck".

Natural perfumes use weaker, organic alcohol bases, or no alcohol at all, to create a sweet floral aroma that lasts for a much longer period of time. Jojoba oil is a commonly utilized base that provides use as a moisturizer when used in perfumes. This specific type of oil moistens the skin rather than drying it out like the strong alcohols normally applied. The problem with using non-alcoholic bases like jojoba oil is that it makes it much more difficult to make a powerful enough scent. However, organic oils like the jojoba oil are much less harmful to the skin. Other organic alcohols, like organic grape alcohol, are often used as bases as well because they are solvent extracted and do not harm the environment when gathered. The use of organic grape alcohol allows for a much more unique and exquisite scent while doing minimal irritation to the skin.

Perfume oils have a slight difference in their intended appliance and effect. While the addition of the word "oil" doesn't seem like that big of a change, it can make a significant difference in the usage of the perfume. Many perfume oils are more likely to be applied directly to the skin and utilize actual oils in their usage. Some companies still use alcohol, even in these, to provide the similar effect found in other types of perfumes. However, organic oils like coconut oils and jojoba oils provide use as a moisturizer, as well as an aromatherapy and a scent enhancer. These all natural oils can be applied to the neck, sternum, back of hands, and behind the ears to stimulate your own sense of smell as well as that of those who surround you. Aromatherapy is widely known to relieve stress and help an individual relax, while the scent itself can add to the ambience of any situation.

Organic oils and natural fragrances have their obvious benefits, but can be sometimes difficult to find. The local food market isn't going to be carrying any of these products, and it can be a challenge to find these organic products even in a shopping mall. However, Osmia Organics provides safe, trustworthy, hand made fragrances that contain all the added benefits of utilizing organic fragrances. Stimulate your own senses, as well as the senses of others, by using healthy, environmentally friendly perfumes.
