Natural perfumes and unscented personal care products are increasing in popularity as more and more consumers find themselves suffering from chemical sensitivities. In fact, many people stop wearing perfume because they can't handle the headache that comes with it! That is the wonderful thing about making scents with naturally derived materials: for those of us who can't tolerate synthetic chemicals, they allow us to nurture ourselves with a personal, wonderful smell and none of the unpleasant side effects.
Your natural perfume should be about you. It should connect with something in your brain, and take you somewhere lovely for a moment or two. Osmia perfumes are made by hand in tiny batches. We use essential oils, CO2 extracts, and absolutes in a base of either organic alcohol, or organic oils. Many, such as our best-selling Juniper Fire, Taza, and Cedar Smoke, are unisex in nature, and none of them are overpowering. They are meant to be sensed by only you and those close to you, and applied frequently, rather than leaving a swath of smell behind you as you pass through a room. The scent should last 2-5 hours on your skin.
