Well, I’ve found my new favorite wearable scent.
And I’m really thankful I did, because sometimes I want to smell pretty and I truly can not even consider using artificial “perfume” fragrances. Tossed them all out long ago, never to return.
Over the past several years, I’ve tried a few other organic/essential oil based scents and while many of them smell pretty, they just don’t last. This is the longest lasting organic scent I have ever used and it just so happens to be my favorite! I love it when things come together easily like that!
Alison Price, owner of the Organic Glow website, sent me the cutest ever trial sized bottles of perfumes to review… and I was smitten before I even opened the box. The packaging alone makes me feel like I am holding a treasure. Inside were 6 tiny roller ball topped glass vials that held lovely and distinct scents… my daughter and I had so much fun smelling them all and choosing our favorites. My fav? Brave. My second favorite was Free.
Alison endorses Miessence, a certified organic line of products that includes home care, body care, cosmetics, and… my new favorite perfume. I invited her to talk a little about what makes Miessence’s perfumes so special. Here she is:
Hi Dr. Laura & Heartsong readers!
I’m so happy to hear you love our Miessence certified organic botanical perfumes and I’m excited to be a “guest blogger” here with you!
I’d like to share why our Miessence botanical perfumes are so unique….. the 6 amazing scents are hand blended in the traditional artisan method of natural perfumery using rare and exquisite botanical extracts, absolutes and essential oils only. The ingredient lists include all kinds of rare and aromatic organic plants from all over the world and make use of the flowers, fruits, leaves, twigs, bark, resins, roots, rhizomes and seeds to create the moods of our different scents.
I invite your readers to visit my website to read about the profiles of each scent including, Love (floral botanical), Free (citrus botanical), Wild (oriental exotic), Calm (fougÃ¨re botanical), Brave (chypre musk), and Delicious (gourmand botanical). The scents will interact and blend with your individual body chemistry, creating your own unique fragrance that evolves over time. With several scents being unisex, men can enjoy using them too.
The ancient anointing ritual of perfuming our bodies has been part of the human experience for thousands of years, using the power of plant essence to create harmony in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves. Not only will you smell amazing, but your mind and body will reap the aromatherapy benefits these ingredients offer. Such benefits are not the same for just any perfumes on the market. I’m sure most of your readers are aware that non-organic perfumes, colognes and fragrance are actually laboratory created soups of thousands of chemical ingredients. A synthetic attempt to recreate the smell of a rose is a lot less expensive than using real blossoms. Not the case here!
All of our Miessence botanical perfume formulations are 100% organic and certified to USDA Organic standards, meaning every single ingredient must meet the standards of organic food. This certification ensures that every ingredient is untouched by synthetic chemicals (even in during processing/manufacturing), making these perfumes the purest on the planet!
I’d like to welcome Heartsong readers with 20% off their first order. To redeem this offer just use “welcome20” as the promo code at checkout from the Miessence/Organic Glow order processing site (offer will expire May 31, 2011, limited to first time customers only). Visit my website at www.organicglow.com to see our full line of products!
In addition, I’m currently doing lots of promotions and giveaways announced on the Organic Glow Facebook page. Right now we have a buy one get one free on our organic toothpastes! Like Organic Glow.com on FACEBOOK to get the details and future news.
Thank you so much, Alison, for sharing your products with me and offering a discount to Heartsong readers! I look forward to featuring my other fav product from the Miessence line in a few weeks. Fair warning, this line of products are quite pricey, but it is equally fair to say that this is one of the most luxurious line of products I’ve ever seen. Each product it so pure and so organic as to be edible. Each product is such high quality it will last for a very long time. I have the tiny trial sized bottle of Brave botanical perfume and have been using it for two weeks now and the bottle still looks full!
These products are certainly a splurge, but if you have ever considered splurging on department store products, this would be a more worthwhile investment for sure. The make up and skin care prices are right on line with higher end department store prices, while being completely 100% organic.
And as a side note, if you own a small business or create natural/organic products that you would like me to consider for review on my blog, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org… I love promoting small business owners that support the health of our planet and each other and I love all my guest bloggers! Thank you Alison, for your blog piece today! xoxo
