Any questions? As always, I’m here to help you!
People are always curious about the scent of the Miessence product’s. “What do they smell like?” is a common first question followed up with some sampling and sniffing. The organic, fresh floral and herbal aromas stand in stark contrast to the artificial and heavily perfumed products that line the shelves today. The scent of Miessence can only be described as “real”.
Miessence products are not technically “scented” with anything specific, but a compilation of their certified organic ingredients. The naturally extracted and cold processed organic ingredients provide functional and beneficial properties to a product, but also bring the additional benefit of gorgeous scent. Although the scents are quite complex and synergistic, basically what you see on the ingredient list is what you get (or smell)!
Sadly, 99% of products on the market today are scented with synthesized odorants, otherwise known as chemical fragrance. Many consumers are surprised to know that the “floral” scent of their conventional shampoo is not actual flower extracts. In order to reduce costs, scents are not obtained from a plant, flower, or nature itself but instead are synthetically created to match a compound found in nature. Even more disturbing is the fact that these chemical concoctions (sometimes made up of hundreds of chemicals) by law do not have to be listed on an ingredient label and must only be disclosed as “fragrance”. With some of these chemicals being associated with hormone disruption and allergic reactions and largely untested for human safety, I find it best to avoid chemical scent or fragrance.
So how do you describe a “real” scent to someone when we are all so used to artificial, laboratory created, synthesized chemical scents? Basically, you have to experience true natural scents first hand to appreciate the difference.
I’ve had years to move away from synthetically scented products to those only scented with their natural and organic ingredients. Not only my personal care products, but cleaning products, air fresheners and even perfume. Once you spend time with the true fragrances of nature most people come to find they are repelled by synthetic chemical fragrance. I hope that others can come to experience the real smells of nature as well. Especially those with sensitive skin and allergies as such conditions are all aggravated by the synthetic soup of chemical fragrances. A rose by any other name may NOT smell as sweet!
Fall is fast approaching and that means cold and flu season is also around the corner. Are you dreading the constant use of hand sanitizer gels filled with synthetic fragrances, artificial coloring agents, petroleum derivatives and other questionable preservatives?
