Since the start of human civilization, fragrances and scented oils are used and their use has been documented as far back as ancient civilizations. In religious rituals and daily life usage which is not much distinct from our usage today, the use of scented oils and perfumes has been well preserved and is in the continuation even today.
Natural ingredients—flowers, grasses, spices, fruit, wood, roots, resins, balsams, leaves, gums, and animal secretions—as well as resources like alcohol, petrochemicals, coal, and coal tars are used in the manufacture of perfumes. Some plants, such as lily of the valley, do not produce oils naturally. In fact, only about 2,000 of the 250,000 known flowering plant species contain these essential oils. Therefore, synthetic chemicals must be used to re-create the smells of non-oily substances. Synthetics also create original scents not found in nature.
By extracting gum and sap from trees, as in the case of Myrrh, or by steeping petals or leaves from a rose plant or any other aromatic plant, some scents, aromatic oils & ittars have been recovered. The trade routes were based on the exchange of fragrances in the form of spices, essential oils and rare plants from which perfume could be produced. It was not until the 19th century that the perfume sector became evident, as it is known today.
At this moment in time, innovations in chemistry provided increased distribution and larger quantities to be created. Prior to this, perfumes, aromatic oils & ittars were produced at home in small private batches.
Using perfume to heal, make people feel good, and improve relationships between the sexes are the new frontiers being explored by the industry. The sense of smell is considered a right brain activity, which rules emotions, memory, and creativity. Aromatherapy—smelling oils and fragrances to cure physical and emotional problems—is being revived to help balance hormonal and body energy. The theory behind aromatherapy states that using essential oils helps bolster the immune system when inhaled or applied topically. Smelling sweet smells also affects one’s mood and can be used as a form of psychotherapy. Like aromatherapy, more research is being conducted to synthesize human perfume—that is, the body scents we produce to attract or repel other humans.
Our vision is to provide the best perfumes which are extracted from the natural process which are authentic and are in pure form causing no harm to the environment. We take care of the environment and use no plastic products.
