Best Natural Perfumes & Colognes

For those who suffer from sensitivities to traditional perfumes, colognes, and fragrances, here are some natural alternatives. Below are the best natural perfumes and colognes.

Perfumes and fragrances can cause allergic reactions and irritate the skin, both for the wearer and anyone who comes in close proximity to the someone who is wearing a lot of cologne or perfume. Scents can cause migraine headaches, bring on seasonal allergies including sneezing, congestion, difficulty breathing, hives redness and rash.

Fragrances, body lotion, and deodorant often contain petroleum-based chemicals called phthalates, which help the scent last longer.  Parabens are synthetic chemicals that are used as preservatives in a wide variety of products. According to a 2009 study, almost 30% of the people reported having a sensitivity to perfumes and fragrances.

Purchasing products that are free from phthalates, parabens and sulfates and other toxins will help eliminate allergic reactions for most people. Look for products that only use essential oils, and use essential oils to scent your home.  Organic and botanical fragrances are the best choices for fragrances and perfumes.
