Perfume can be lovely when you find an aroma you really like. It is nice to smell a pretty scent throughout the day and can lift your spirits a bit as well as mask any odor you may have… hehe.
However perfume can have ingredients that are not healthy for you. In fact it is common that fragrances, are mixes made of undisclosed chemical scents which have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and even may have effects on the reproductive system.
On the EWG scale parfum another name for fragrance has a score of 8 out of 1 being the least toxic and 10 being the most toxic.
Luckily there is another option aside from the perfume that is normally purchased. There are natural perfume products. Most of these are created using essential oils which are a 1 on the EWG scale.
Now you want to be careful about essential oils during pregnancy as there are certain oils that have the potential to cause miscarriage, and or birth defects.
This is why I have come up with a list of essential oils to avoid during pregnancy which in included in my Essential Guide for Personal Care Products During Pregnancy.
About These Natural Perfume Products
I have discovered a few brands that create natural perfumes that are based on essential oils. There are so many ingredients that we want to avoid which can be harmful to ourselves or to our baby if we are pregnant. These fragrances listed below, I’ve researched about through the EWG, (Environmental Working Group) when I was trying to find safer options.
For More information on determining what is safe or not check out my Essential Guide To Safe Personal Care Products During Pregnancy. I have also included a list of personal care ingredients you want to avoid during pregnancy but also in general.
