I know that perfume is a cliche Valentines Day gift, but since these are botanical instead of toxic junk I had to share. :) I say toxic junk because 95% of perfumes are made with synthetic petroleum based compounds that cause numerous problems for many people. The Environmental Working Group found that 16% of perfumes contained chemicals that can cause cancer. 98% of perfumes contained ingredients that haven't been tested or had insufficient data. 76% contained ingredients that are allergens and 13% had potential health concerns. Perfumes don't list their ingredients, so you have no clue what you are getting.
I found an amazing company called Trillium Organics that carries botanical perfumes with mainly organic ingredients. Trillium Organics has 3 perfume lines, Amorous Agenda, Aromatic Attitude Adjustment, and Aromarolla. They all come in multiple scents and are pocket size rollers. You can purchase 1/5 drams or 1/3 oz. rollers of the Aromarolla. I was sent the Amorous Agenda line that includes Love, Romance, and Passion. Of course Passion would be my favorite. :) I'm a very passionate person. Passion includes organic jojoba oil, organic vanilla, ylang ylang, ginger, clove, and cinnamon. It is a spicy scent, yet not too pungent. The clove and ginger are mild.
My next favorite is the Romance. It is a mild scent that's very laid back. It includes organic jojoba oil, organic vanilla, clary sage, and ylang ylang. I love the gentle scent of vanilla mixed with sage.
I'm not too fond of the Love scent, but floral scents just aren't me. Granted, it does smell exactly like roses and roses do smell wonderful. But, my perfume personality just isn't roses. Love includes organic jojoba oil, organic vanilla, rose, and sandalwood. If you do like floral scents, this would be perfect for you!
Trillium Organics carries organic and non-toxic skin care ranging from oils, lotions and soaps. They also have a OG Baby line that includes a respiratory congestion clearing set. I have that to review and I'm pretty sure it's coming in the next week since Miss E has a 102 fever tonight. No symptoms yet, but I'm sure those will follow tomorrow.
