I've been using essential oils as perfume and "aromatherapy" throughout my day for yonks. I have always been interested in creating beautiful smells and playing with herbs, petals etc I remember harvesting my Mum's rose petals then storing them in an icecream container thinking I would have a beautiful perfume - but promptly forgot about them and found a rotting mess. So instead of carrying around 5 bottles of essential oils in my handbag - (I may still have a few) I decided to have a go at cream perfumes.
These are amazing, not only do you get the added nourishing and moisterising effects of the coconut oil and beeswax, they are super gentle on the skin, but the oils and wax hold the smell of the essential oils added. You still need to re-apply during the day, but they last a lot longer than using the oils neat, and also safer for skin sensitivities.
These little cream "purefumes" are a great way to get some aromatherapy into your day. Also a nice way to try out the different oils to see if you like them, before purchasing a whole bottle.
This one is Lavender Peace which is a beautiful blend its a super relaxing grounding blend which just smells divine!! I cannot ever be without Lavender Peace I just love the smell of it diffusing in my bedroom, and I love to use it as one of my perfumes during the day.
