Learn about the benefits of using natural fragrances verses synthetic fragrances

The female beauty cabinet would not be complete without several bottles of designer perfume, which help give us that perfect scent. However, many people are not aware of the risks associated with using synthetic fragrances as opposed to natural fragrances, which have many benefits and smell just as good, if not better, than their artificial counterparts. Synthetic fragrances are created in laboratories with toxic chemicals that contain cancer causing ingredients among others, and often promote asthma and other life threatening disorders. Natural fragrances on the other hand contain non toxic ingredients that pose no risk to your body and contain a variety of safe and pleasant ingredients, from cedarwood to geranium, which smell good as well.

Natural fragrances often contain essential oils, which are good for skin and can also help reduce stress by relaxing and calming the body. These fragrances are also bottled by hand and not in factories using machines, and by using natural plants and vegetable byproducts among their ingredients, natural perfume also has a longer staying powder so the fragrance lasts longer on your body and in the bottle. Check out 19 Best Perfumes for a list of some of the best fragrances that Total Beauty readers are currently obsessed with.

I'm very scent sensitive. I've had more negative reactions to products that are supposedly natural so I just focus on quality, try to choose products made in Europe. Cosmetics are much more regulated there than even here in the US. I've had great luck with few brands primarily Perlier. Even when I was getting the worst migraines of my life I could wear them most days. Try Strawberry Vanilla (reviewed here) and the others from that grouping.

Any information about natural fragrances is appreciated. I can get a headache just passing through the cosmetics department.
