The amazing thing about Natural Perfume is, not only does it smell great, but it comes with all the therapeutic benefits of Essential Oils. There are many ways you can chose your desired perfume, obviously scent being a key driver. However, you can also choose your Natural Perfume based on your mood and how you might want to enhance or reflect it.

When we breath in the essential oils in our perfume a message is sent to the limbic system in our brain from the nose almost instantaneously, and since the limbic system happens to be the brain center of our emotions, our feelings and body are impacted.

Although essential oils affect individuals in different ways, there are ones that are used consistently to help with different emotional states because they tend to work well with consistency across many individuals.

Below is the equivalent of a wine pairing for your mood! There are three key areas: calming down, staying focused and energizing, with a list of essential oils that can be used to assist with each of these and some great perfume suggestions you could use to reflect or enhance these moods!
