For when you want to smell amazing … for yourself!
I love scents and perfumes so much, they make us feel special and amazing and can also support our emotions. However unfortunately most of the perfumes we find in the commerce contain a lot of synthetic substances and toxic chemicals used to keep the smell longer on our skin, like phthalates (also used to make plastic) that pass from the skin into our blood and disrupt our hormonal balance.
That’s why I started buying perfumes made only with pure essential oils, like those made by ABEL (my favorite one is Golden Neroli) or making my own perfumes with essential oils, like this wonderful HAIR PERFUME, which I love. It´s super easy to make, give it a try and let me know!
If you want healthy hair, you need a healthy scalp. This perfume doesn´t only smell amazing but it also a real treat for the scalp, promoting hair growth and balancing the production of sebum, thanks to the essentials oils in it.
ABOUT THE INGREDIENTS / Geranium essential oil is a balancing and sensual oil. The scent of geranium can reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, sadness, fatigue, and tension, enhance concentration, improve cognitive function, and balance the emotions as well as the hormones. Geranium essential oil can regulate dryness, excess oil, and the production of sebum. To improve hair growth, a healthy scalp is key. Since geranium balances secretions around the hair follicles, it’s an effective agent for hair growth.
Rosemary essential oil has an uplifting and energizing aroma and can do wonders for your hair. Rosemary is a great choice for hair growth and hair thickness because the essential oil can repair, stimulate, and regulate cells. That means it can help to reduce or balance oily discharge at the hair follicles. A clinical review published in BMJ found that when massaged into the scalp daily, rosemary may help with hair growth. In addition, a 2015 study published in SKINmed Journal found rosemary may help protect against hair loss.
Ylang Ylang and Jasmine essential oils will make the perfume smells luxurious. Ylang ylang can help alleviating anxiety, lowering blood pressure in some people and has a calming effect beneficial for relaxation and for conditions such as headache. Ylang Ylang oil is loaded with organic components that promote the appearance of healthy hair, making them looking healthy and strong. To protect your hair from looking beat by the summer heat, massage Ylang Ylang into your scalp to increase the appearance of healthy, shiny hair. Jasmine essential oil has an uplifting scent and it is the perfect way to uplift mood. Emotionally, Jasmine promotes feelings of joy, peace, and self-confidence. Applying Jasmine in the morning will help provide a positive outlook on the day and leave you feeling uplifted and confident.
