What are natural perfumes?
The ingredients of natural perfumes do not contain any synthetic fragrances and chemicals which are harmful to your health. The only ingredients in natural perfumes are the ones derived from plants using distillation, expression or extraction. Natural fragrances are complex compositions of natural raw materials (e.g. essential oils, isolates, fractions of essential oils), extracts and volatile concentrates. Natural fragrances are also usually made from sustainably grown plants rather than from petrochemicals.
Is it really worth compromising your health for?
Unfortunately, we can find plenty of synthetic perfumes on the shop’s selves. These will never serve our health. I know that it’s hard to quit using our old and beloved perfumes because we feel like ” this is me “, it is part of our personality. Am I right? But is it really worth compromising your health for? Is it worth inhaling those harmful chemicals? It only lasts for few hours or a day but it is not worth it in the long run. We can’t see our perfume’s ingredients but those chemicals are there and sadly our skin absorbs them. If those toxic chemicals absorbed straight to our blood stream then it can be everywhere. Do you know why? Because we have uncountable veins in our body. So on this basis, those harmful chemicals can reach your heart, your brain and everything.
As a woman it is really important to me to look good, pretty and being fragrant but NOT at the expense of my health! I created this blog because I would like to share my opinions, my studies with you all and help you through them.
Why would you spray chemicals on your body through your perfume?
I ask all of you, please always buy natural and organic perfumes for the sake of your own health . But this is not limited only to perfumes…, same applies to makeup and skincare products as well. Besides that, they have healing powers. As Hanako Therapies describe them, they can help with your emotional well-being, digestion, stress, hormone levels, concentration, productivity, inspiration.
And I also would like to mention Josh Rosebrook thoughts (Founder of Josh Rosebrook skin & hair care):
Always remember the body is natural, and the original source of nutrients and oils necessary for body, skin, hair and scalp regeneration are found in nature: plants, herbs, nuts, fruits, seeds, stems, leaves and flowers. These contain the phytonutrients that share distinct molecular and structural similarities, and have the same natural regenerative abilities as the oils and nutrients in the body. This likeness of biochemistry, or bio-match, has a natural vibrational alignment and activates the regenerative cellular process in the body that safely and effectively regenerates, heals, nourishes and protects our skin, scalp and hair.

List of Natural and Organic Perfumes
In the following list you can find only natural and organic perfumes that are great for your health. This list contains my personal favorites too and those that I didn’t know before, so I contacted the brands and inquired them for information.
A Perfume Organic
A Perfume Organic is passionately committed to offering the finest certified organic perfumes possible. This brand is created by designer/perfumer Amanda Walker, an innovator of creative formulas and ecological packaging. Drawing upon her experience working for Manhattan based, multi-billion dollar beauty corporations, Amanda wanted to offer a natural, healthier alternative to synthetic perfumes, which are full of acetone, petroleum, and phthalates (used to make plastics). Hundreds of studies have linked these chemicals to asthma, migraines, birth defects, cancer and air pollution. Inspired by her training with Master Perfumers and Distillers, she was reminded perfume was originally produced from flowers, fruit, herbs and spices. Amanda only wanted to use the finest, safest, and purest ingredients from plants.
Earth Tu Face
In 2010 Earth tu Face began with two herbalists, a garden, and focus on creating a purely plant-based 100% natural skincare line, free of toxins or synthetic compounds. Every ingredient that they include in their products is there for a specific therapeutic reason. They do not use fillers of any kind, meaning every ingredient in their products is an “active” ingredient. All of their formulas are original, created and tested by them, on real people — never on animals. Their products are created with 100% plant-based; food grade ingredients, Ingredients chosen to heal your body and our planet, Non-GMO, plant derived Vitamin E, Organic beeswax, Organic, virgin cold-pressed oils, Plant extracts hand chosen by herbalists, Reusable, compostable and recyclable containers, Organic and wildcrafted ingredients, NO animal testing, Product and packaging made in the USA.

Florescent Botanical Perfume
Hand blended by Susannah Compton, Florescent botanical perfumes was created out of a love for fresh, real scents—the kind of aromas you encounter in the wild or in a garden. Each signature scent is developed from a blend of certified organic and wildcrafted essential oils, absolutes, C02 extracts, balsams and resins. The concentrated perfume blends are diluted with certified organic grape alcohol, which is the delivery mechanism for each scent.
Forager Botanicals is a natural fragrance and beauty company focused on creating beautiful products using all natural ingredients. All of our products are handcrafted in Brooklyn. Our wooden tops are handmade by a local artisan so please allow for slight variation from the item pictured.
I didn’t see any ingredient list on their site so I asked them, their answer:
Hi Eszter – Thank you for your email. We use only blends of essential oils (plant based material) in our perfumes and to scent our products, so we don’t use any synthetic (chemically created fragrance oils). We don’t list the essential oils we use and is it is a proprietary combination for each scent.
Rachel and Jeff have founded Hanako Therapies through a journey that came from a massive shift in their own momentum. They personally know what it is like to be at a point where you need to take a step back and find balance and focus – and clarity. As Rachel says:
“Our bodies know how to heal just as nature knows how to heal and balance. If only we’d listen to what it needs – and trust that it knows what it’s doing. I want these products to enrich the lives of many users, knowing that they are made of pure, natural ingredients. You know exactly what you are putting onto your body. Allow yourself a moment to create a sacred space for yourself before you set out for the day. Take a deep breath, affirm and envelope your being with positive energy, awareness, support, love and kindness.”
Ime Natural Perfume
The brand founder is Toria. She described her brand: “I believe in a holistic approach to wellness which is how I have created these perfumes and how you can access the simple nature of them. With a background in natural therapies and together with a master perfumer, each natural fragrance has been created holistically, so you can choose by muse, by mood, by colour or scent – be inspired, because the magic is in the mist!”
All of their products are 100% natural and 100% of the plants we use are Certified Organic, Organic or Wildcrafted. Their products that contain both oil and water or aloe vera juice require a safe, non toxic preservative system to effectively inhibit the growth of mold, yeast, bacteria and fungi. They have a proprietary concentrate formula that includes organic plant vitamins and antioxidants infused in water. This proprietary, leading-edge, natural technology effectively creates a structure helping to inhibit spoilage and extend shelf life of products.
La bella figura
Victoria and Karen built La Bella Figura with an authentic style and a commitment to share the stories of the growers and producers of the uncompromising ingredients used in their formulas. Their strategy to collaborate directly with producers, growers, farmers and a team of passionate creatives has catapulted their presence as industry leaders and forward thinking entrepreneurs. Every part of their process from sourcing, product development to manufacturing is done in-house under the watchful eyes of Victoria and Karen. We believe that the finest ingredients make the finest products and there is nowhere on earth we won’t go to seek the very best. We do not mass manufacture our products, preferring to create every batch by hand with tenderness and craftsmanship we can feel proud of in our Chicago workspace.
I wasn’t sure this brand is using only natural ingredients because I couldn’t find any detailed ingredient list on their site. So I contacted them and they said,
We would also not list or include our entire ingredient list as they are a protected trade secret. We do list our notes on each product description if that’s helpful to you and all of our ingredients are indeed all natural.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else. Thank you.
La Bella Figura
If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I can ask your questions from them or contact the brand.

Osmia, as I use it, means “sense of smell”. (It’s derived from the medical word “anosmia”, which is the inability to smell.) Every Osmia product is made with utmost attention to the scent and its aromatherapeutic benefits.

Some of their products contains benzyl benzoate which is not the best for the health. It can irritate your skin and your eyes too. Benzyl Benzoate is a natural component of cinnamon essential oil. It composes about 3% of the oil. But when you find this ingredient on a product and if it does not specify that it is from cinnamon essential oil, you should either contact the manufacturer to find out the source of the benzyl benzoate or not buy the product. It can be synthetic which is bad. I recommend you to avoid products which contains it or contact brands!

It’s what makes an effective product something you truly come to care about, something you value in your day to day routine.”
Their botanical fragrances blend certified organic, wildcrafted, biodynamic, and hydro-distilled essences with genuine inspiration and compelling narratives. Each entirely natural perfume is designed, decanted, and bottled within our own natural fragrance house based in Venice, California. A master distiller heads our laboratory customizing essences both locally and all over the world.
