How to find a natural replacement for your mainstream perfume

I still clearly remember the moment I realised my perfume was more synthetic than natural. I’d recently made the switch to making my entire life more natural but for some reason, I didn’t even consider the scent I sprayed on my skin each morning. I was picking up my perfume to spray it on when I stopped and looked at it as if it was the first time I’d seen it.

This perfume was:

  • Tested on animals
  • Made from synthetic ingredients
  • Irritating my skin
  • Giving me headaches

If you’re anything like me, your perfume is really personal and precious to you so the idea of giving it up and trying to find a natural alternative can feel daunting. Thankfully, I’ve got you covered in today’s blog post.

I love owning and running a natural perfume company because I get to help people feel incredible with the products I make. Even though it can be difficult to describe my different scents with only words, I have a few options if you’re still not sure about what perfume you should choose.

Firstly, there’s my blog post…
