The Ultimate Guide To 14 Natural Perfume & Aromatherapy Brands

Mhmmm…the feeling when a fragrance stimulates our senses, lifts our mood or even takes us back to a fond memory is indescribable. But what kind of ingredients does the word “fragrance” or “perfume” actually contain on the cosmetics label (with or without scent)? Many companies today use unnatural synthetic fragrances that contain chemicals that can be harmful to our body. And the companies aren’t even required to list the ingredients on the labels because the contents of perfume are considered a trade secret. Perfume can thus actually contain hundreds of unlisted ingredients, so we as consumers don’t always know what we’re putting on our bodies. In this guide, we have compiled clean and/or natural perfume and aromatherapy brands that consciously and carefully source their ingredients naturally and sustainably and list their ingredients transparently.

Do you know what traditional candles are made of? – Paraffin wax is the bottom of the barrel of petroleum. So when paraffin wax candles burn, they release toxic air contaminants which are similar to diesel. No jokes. APOTHENNE Los Angles comes up with a healthier, more eco-friendly solution: Soy wax candles mixed with premium essential oils that are 100% free of preservatives, additives, dyes, parabens, petroleum, and phthalates. Each of their candles is mindfully hand-poured in their small LA studio.
