Women, we couldn’t celebrate you this month without addressing this one..
Perfume is now being nicknamed the new second hand smoke 😟
It’s a little known culprit for those headaches, migraines, allergies and even hormonal and thyroid issues you might be having.
How? Why? 🤷♀️
Well it’s because of their synthetic + artificial nature!
They are man-made-in-a-lab ingredients, with most of them being derived from petroleum, so your body gets a little confused about what to do with them, and is unable to recognise them and not able to process them like it would an ingredient in it’s pure, natural form.
So these ingredients end up doing funny things like mimicking estrogen and disrupting your hormones, giving you headaches and for some causing rashes and even asthma. 😳
So many of us aren’t able to put two and two together that this is the cause, and thanks to companies having a “trade secret” loophole to keep you in the dark about what’s in their product you can be kept in the dark about the 100’s of ingredients that can be listed under the words ‘parfum’ or ‘fragrance’. 🙅♀️
Plants, flowers, woods, fruits, resins, herbs, spices.
The original perfume, the one our body recognises and understands how to process.
We love essential oils because they are nature in its most pure and concentrated form, and if used safely it is more than just an aroma being beneficial to not just your physical wellbeing but your emotional and mental health too. 🙏
So it’s a no-brainer really? 🤷♀️
Apply synthetic ingredients that are kept secret from you and aren’t tested for safety? 😷🚫
Nature’s perfume that our body can recognise and process with health benefits galore? 🌸🌿😍
We’ll take the ‘pure’-fume, thanks! 🙌
