Luxury scents have been loved by women for centuries to make them feel fabulous, and to enhance confidence, mood and allure. However, you may not know that many scented products contain harmful chemicals including a concoction of petroleum-based synthetics and harmful additives such as parabens and phthalates, each with its own long list of negative effects.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is susceptible to an array of assaults, not in the least of which is what you put on or near your skin. Over 60% of this gets absorbed into your bloodstream, so it’s important to want to make sure you are using is not causing your body and especially your growing baby harm.
A discerning natural choice of fragrance

How to switch, to natural fragrances
Switching to all natural products might seem overwhelming, and it likely will be if you try to switch out all your products at once. Emma and Jess advise that the best way to transition is with small, consistent changes to your daily routine and lifestyle. First, start with just one product, for example, your perfume. If you want to start now, why not try the Sensoriam Scent Quiz here to help you discern a fragrance that is perfect for you.

The Sensoriam story
For natural beauty expert, Jessica Kiely, the path to Sensoriam began on one unassuming day in 2013 when her husband announced he wanted out of their marriage. It was a turning point for Jessica, who realised she needed to strip away toxins of body, mind, spirit and soul. With a deeper connection to nature and holistic living, Jessica discovered a stronger, more beautiful sense of self.

It all began in the family station wagon driving to ballet for brand pioneer, Emma Scott. As a kid, she had to sit for the whole drive breathing in the overpowering scent from her mum’s synthetic perfume, Anais Anais. It made Emma so nauseous she could barely stand straight during ballet class! This was the beginning of a decades-long hyper-sensitivity to artificial fragrances. It also opened Emma’s eyes (and nose) to the benefits of natural products and clean living. Throughout her life, embracing spiritual and metaphysical practices has had a profound impact on Emma’s sense of wellbeing.
Both Jess and Emma are dedicated to helping others find their way to a more natural way of living, and no better time to explore removing toxins from your environment is when you have a little one on the way. Better for baby, better for you.
