The case has well and truly been made for natural beauty products, but what about natural fragrances? Everything we put into our bodies and onto our skin effects us in many ways, so it’s interesting to consider the effects fragrances might have on our skin. Whilst most perfumes have undergone rigorous testing and are considered harmless, there are still people out there who experience adverse effects to chemicals on their skin. Plus, some people just prefer their products to be natural (because if there is a natural alternative, then why not)! Unfortunately, finding natural fragrances that also smell good can be hard to come by, that is, until now. Introducing Melissa Allen Mood Essentials™, fragrances that are 100% natural, made from essential oils such as lavender, bergamot and sandalwood. We chat to Founder Melissa Allen about what it really means to be natural.

“As humans we are exposed to so many chemicals each and every day so it’s important to be very mindful about the types of products we use and what the ingredients are,”

“Our skin and body actually absorbs what we put on it so it was really important to me to create a fragrance that was completely natural. A lot of research has gone into creating these fragrances to ensure that they not only smell great, but to maintain the formulation of being 100% natural. This not only means that it is kind to your skin, but to the environment as well.”

As if that isn’t enough to make the case for natural fragrances, did we mention that Melissa Allen Mood Essentials™ are unisex (so yes your boyfriend can steal them, or you can buy one for him) AND they are designed to have a psychological influence on your mood (hence the name)! Infused with 100% natural essential oils, Melissa Allen Mood Essentials not only smell amazing, but are formulated to positively improve emotional state and influence behaviours through the exploration of fragrance. Designed to uncover moods influenced by scent, from stress relief with ‘I Have Calm’, through to boosting confidence with ‘I Have Joy’, Melissa Allen Mood Essentials have a profound physiological and psychological effect on those inhaling the fragrances. Melissa Allen Mood Essentials™ really are a perfect addition to your beauty cabinet… And your life.
