We got (even) green(er)
Our aim to be as green as possible as a business. Of course, eco-friendliness is an ongoing commitment and we thought we'd share some new initiatives we have underway on the matter.
Parfum, Eau de Parfum, Eau de Cologne, etc. What is the difference and what does it mean for natural perfumes?

Essential oils can be described as the essence of the plant it is extracted from and are a key component of our natural perfumes. Though we mainly use them for their scents, essential oils are also famous for their use in aromatherapy and other forms of alternative medicine.
