Joy Perfume for June

Joy for June!

With Winter well and truly here, why not celebrate with a boost of joyfulness with our new JOY perfume just released.

JOY perfume

It is so easy for us all to put joy on the back-burner. We leave it for the weekends, holidays, ‘when there’s time’, but joy is actually the nourishment our soul craves and desires. It’s literally food for our soul. We need it in our lives, daily. Even if it’s a small boost by smelling a flower, or watching the light change in the evening sky. How about letting loose and dancing in your lounge to your favourite song.

I dare you to seek out joy, no matter what. And for an extra boost of enjoyment, our JOY perfume is the perfect reminder to follow your joy! On sale on June 1.

Our JOY perfume is a blend of beautiful essential oils and seed oils, including the refreshing scent of cucumber seed oil that reminds me of summer, combined with citrus overtones!

Why choose Bee Sensual’s natural JOY perfume?

Because JOY perfume is 100% natural, with over 80% of the ingredients organic, and it contains no nasties or synthetic compounds.

If you Google effects of synthetic fragrances, you’ll find a whole range of articles talking about hormone disruption, skin allergies, respiratory problems and more. Where are you exposed to these synthetic fragrances? To start, in your home. If all of your products are not 100% naturally scented from essential oils, then you find it in washing powder, shampoo, perfume, air fresheners, candles etc. Outside of your home in shops, workplaces, car fresheners and everyone else’s perfume.

Basically our system is overloaded with synthetic fragrance, which is a cocktail of chemicals containing a range of:

  • sulfates
  • parabens
  • synthetic fragrance
  • synthetic colours
  • T.E.A.
  • D.E.A.
  • glycols
  • silicones
  • PEGs
  • ethoxylate, or
  • formaldehyde

Our natural JOY perfume comes in a amber glass bottle with a roller ball lid for easy application. A combination of joy, organic jojoba oil and essential oils. Apply whenever you’re feeling like a joy boost to nourish your soul, or want to smell naturally joyful.

Find it here. En-JOY 🙂 

 

Exploring essential oils: Rose essential oil

No other flower has been exalted in literature, mythology and used for so many sacred purposes as the rose – Battaglia

Considering the above quote, I thought rose essential oil (damascena in particular) would be the perfect one to begin with since it so well loved, and one of my most blissfully favourite fragrances. I have a small bottle of it next to my desk to breath in when I need a pick me up.

It is also one of the most healing on the skin!

Rose essential oil cultivation…

rose-essential-oil-damascenaThe cultivation of rose damascena and the production of rose oil was introduced in Bulgaria in the 15th Century. Since rose petals are so fragile they have to be picked manually to minimise the loss of oil. Harvesting occurs between 5am and 10am because this is when the flowers open and the oil content is high.

4,000kg of rose petals produces 1kg of rose oil. Or 4kg of rose petals produces 1g of rose oil! Imagine that! That is a HUGE amount of beautiful roses considering how light they are!

Rose essential oil uses…

Skin – rose damascena essential oil is a beautiful softener while hydrating, stimulating and helps to repair broken capillaries, inflammation and skin redness. Rose water, the condensed steam from the rose oil distilling process, is very soothing and again mildly astringent. Our Rose Mister contains 95% organic rose water from Enio Bonchev in Italy.

Body – rose is a wonderful tonic for the uterus while purifying and regulating. I have also read that it can be very soothing around certain times of the month. It is also helpful for respiratory tract and digestive problems.

Psychologocial – rose damascena is believed to have a profound psychological effect, especially on our hearts. It soothes irritability, insomnia, anger, despair, frustration, fear and anxiety. It is also wonderful for sorrow, opening our hearts to friendship and empathy, and Mojay says it is the herb of love – healing emotional wounds and opening our hearts.

Our Hand Cream is the other product that has beautiful rose damascena in it, and at the moment I am playing with a perfume which is predominantly rose…it’s going to be magical!

Random fact…

Self-indulgent Romans wore rose garlands at their feasts as a prevention against drunkenness!
