Sinful Scents

Let's talk about fragrance. Fragrances are some of the most offensively toxic beauty products on the market. Those expensive glass bottles contain parabens, pthalates, allergens and a side dish of neurotoxins. The word "fragrance" on an ingredient list can actually be a catch all term for any cocktail of 3100 chemicals.

The chemicals used in creating synthetic fragrance are so toxic they have been found in high concentrations in human breast milk, linked to sperm damage, and are carcinogens. 
They also cause migraines, vertigo, asthma, disorientation, burning skin and acne - even just by second hand inhalation for us chemically sensitive folks. 

I get that a girls still gotta smell good though, so why not check out one of the amazing organic perfume companies that do not use chemicals like Lotus Wei? I also recommend making your own blend with essential oils specifically tailored to your energetic, emotional and physical needs. 

Due to my sensitivities, I've never been a fragrance lover, but after discovering pure, high quality essential oils I've embraced them and sometimes do wear them purely as a scent. Recently, I was checking out of hotel and the concierge complimented me on my perfume. Little did he know all I used was one drop of lavender for anxiety and a drop of peppermint for a migraine!
