One of the perks of being a Goddess Garden Ambassador is the chance to share health information and new products with you like the new Essential-Oil Organic Perfume line. Like other Goddess Garden products, this organic perfume line is free of the harsh chemicals you don’t want on your skin and it smells great.
Like many of you, I started my health journey by examining what I ate, reading food labels, and choosing to use ingredients that were as close to nature as possible. Eventually that lead to household cleaning products and now skincare and perfumes. The big difference between labels on food and perfume is that there are NO labels on perfume. The fragrance industry isn’t required to disclose the ingredients it uses. I actually haven’t worn perfume in years because of I was never sure actually WHAT was in a perfume.
NO Transparency in Perfume
Fragrance labeling mandates protect companies’ “secret recipes”. As such, companies can hide their entire ingredient list, including any combo of more than 3,100 synthetic scent chemicals, and list all of it only as “fragrance” or “parfum” on the label. Additives like phthalates, petrochemicals and even oxybenzone can also be used with you additional disclosed.
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, together with the Environmental Working Group, conducted a study on the undisclosed ingredients in popular perfumes. They found that the industry had only conducted safety assessments on 34% of the unlabeled ingredients. That’s just unacceptable! You can read the finding, if you are interested, in the link above.
Goddess Garden Makes Transparency Standard Practice
One of things I love about Goddess Garden is that they are transparent with their product ingredients. Goddess Garden Founder, Nova Covington, started her company after her daughter had serious reactions to the synthetic chemicals in conventional body care products. Because label reading was such a necessity for them, transparency has been Goddess Garden’s standard practice.
Goddess Garden applied that same transparency to their new line of organic perfume. Simply saying ‘a blend of natural and essential oils’ wasn’t enough. What if you have allergies, sensitivities, prefer clean ingredients, or want animal-friendly options? So they clearly labeled each of the ingredients in this new line. All you will see is the denatured alcohol and exact blend of essential oils used. No additives, you secret ingredients, etc.
Essential Oil Perfume
This new line of organic perfume has five different blends. They were created for their scents, but have the added bonus of aromatherapy.
The new line includes:
- Lavender Sky – A blend of lavender and mint soothe and refresh. Reminds me of the herbs growing in my garden.
- Wildflower – Is like being in a field of flowers blend of lavender, orange, and chamomile. It reminds me of clean linen.
- Rainforest – More of an earthy with a blend of bergamot, cedar, frankincense, and more essential oils. Think of the smell after a rain storm on this one.
- Citrus Sunrise – This blend of bergamot, pink grapefruit, lime, and palmarose is bright and sunny. It reminds me of a citrus grove.
- Amber Fire – A blend of lavender, orange, Mandarin Red, blood orange, vetiver, and others. The notes are spicy and warm.
Each perfume comes in a roll on dispenser. Scent doesn’t go on too strong and lasts for several hours, similar to an essential oil. It’s convenient size make it easy to throw in your bag and take with you anywhere. My favorite scents are the Amber Fire and the Citrus Sunrise.
