As a natural perfumer, I only use the very best certified organic & wildcrafted ingredients that nature has on offer in my perfumes.
No synthetics at all. Sometimes brands will claim to use essential oils or natural scent and a synthetic fragrance in the blend as well. To find out for sure, you can check the ingredients list for the word 'fragrance'. When you see this on a label it means that it is a synthetic fragrance.
So to be clear. I only use all-natural ingredients and only certified organic or wildcrafted essential oils and ingredients, which means that the plant materials used to extract the essential oil from or other ingredients have not been exposed to pesticides. Very important. We don't want essential oils with residual pesticides. No, thank you.
Let me also explain that natural and synthetic fragrances are not the same. Synthetic fragrances are man-made. No vibration. In fact, 95% of the chemicals found in most commercial fragrances are made with synthetic compounds. Synthetic aromatic raw materials are derived from petroleum and natural gas, known as a petrochemical.
Unlike naturals which are made from pure plant extracts. Natural perfumes crafted with organic & wildcrafted essential oils like mine can significantly impact your wellbeing primarily because the inhalation of natural ingredients results in the medicinal attributes working to support your mind, body and spirit.
Synthetic perfumes have no therapeutic benefits at all.
So the absence of synthetics in natural perfumery will result in your fragrance not lasting as long on the skin. However, the upside to this is that your applying nature to your body more often, which is always a wonderful thing AND your healing yourself at the same time.
So, when you're working with natural perfumes, your fragrance needs to be applied more often. However, there are some ways you can make your natural perfumes sustain a longer-lasting scent;
1. Layer your perfumes.
Apply a body oil first then spray your perfume on top to lock in fragrance. When you're using the Archangel Aromatherapy Eau de Parfum or Perfume Aura & Body Mist apply the Perfume Body Oil in the matching Archangels fragrance then spray or mist over the top to lock in the scent. This is often referred to in perfumery as layering.
2. Apply to your hair
Spray your perfume into your hair or put your perfume body oil in the ends of your hair. You will have the gentle wafts of fragrance throughout the day from your hair, and it holds the scent for longer.
3. Damp Skin
After your shower or bath apply your perfume as your clean pores are open. This is the perfect time to apply as the open pores on your skin will soak up the perfume, locking it in for a longer-lasting scent. But, don't get dressed immediately, wait a few minutes for the scent to dry; otherwise, it will rub off.
4. No friction
Don't rub your wrists together. Ah yes, this old chestnut. We have all done it at some point. No my friends, no rubbing as this friction will cause the scent to rub off, in particular, those all-important delicate top notes.
Follow these simple steps for longer lasting, high vibrational natural perfuming for your mind, body and your soul.
Don't forget, the Archangel Aromatherapy Range all come with an Eau de Parfum as well as perfume body oils in the same angelic fragrance. That's a total of 15 unique angelic perfume prescriptions. Visit the the Soulscented perfumery to explore the Archangel Aromatherapy range.
