While in Rhinebeck, NY some months ago, walking around Winter Sun & Summer Moon, I stumbled upon the cutest roll on perfumes by Rare Essences. The scents all with such empowering names compelled me to reach out to the company and give their products a try.
Back in the day, I would be one of those girls that shopped for perfume in the department store. Little did I know, the ingredients in perfumes can contain just about anything the manufacturer desired and their ingredients do not have to be listed on the packaging. Today we know perfumes can contain a number of synthetic chemicals which have been linked to allergic reactions as well as to hormonal disruptions. These include parabens, phthalates, synthetic musks as well as chemicals which have not been tested for their safety.
Naturally when I saw “100% pure essential oils in organic jojoba oil” listed on the bottle, I knew I had to find out more regarding this perfume.
To give you a little background, rare Essence perfumes are handcrafted in small batches using only essential oils without synthetic chemicals. The company located in Minneapolis, works closely with distillers and farmers all over the world to responsibly source their natural essential oils. In addition to creating artisan perfumes, the company, rare-earth also creates artisan candles, diffusers and room mists all without synthetic chemicals, alcohol or solvents.
