Non - Alcoholic Perfume? | OrganicIsBeautiful

Non-Alcoholic Perfume?

Today, on OiB I will discuss the ever increasing debate of non-alcoholic perfumes. There have various requests that have been asking me for the reality behind them. This is why I thought to finally give it a thought for all my readers out there. There have been various queries about non-alcoholic perfumes. Some ask if it is natural and organic while some want to know the benefits or the features it has to offer. Thus, you shall find all the answers now as I have tried and used the perfume myself to give you the reviews and knowledge about it.

So What Is Non-Alcoholic Perfume?

The primary essential of perfumes is the oil concentration with which it is made. This is also what makes the non-alcoholic perfume different than a normal alcoholic perfume. This oil concentration should be more and more in order to have a good perfume. All good and high quality perfumes have 15 to 30% perfume oil in them. Alcohol is mixed with this perfume to make the smell stronger.

There are higher quantities of alcohol in those perfumes that have a low quantity of perfume oil. But then there can be several issues with these alcoholic perfumes. It is here that the advantages or features of non-alcoholic perfumes come by.

Features of Non-Alcoholic Perfumes

The different benefits of non-alcoholic perfumes also include benefits for the skin which I have witnessed myself. These are all given as follows

  • These perfumes are not too costly
  • These perfumes do not attract to have stronger smell for the first two hours and then vanish through the next hour (as the alcohol evaporates faster). They remain constant
  • These perfumes have lower risk of being prone to develop skin infection or any skin sensitivity
  • The oil of these perfumes can also sometimes help to have a balanced skincare and fragrance as well
  • Non-alcoholic perfumes are more towards the organic and natural side in comparison

Where Did It Come from?

The actual word perfume is a Latin word called per fumus which means ‘through smoke’. Later on the Romans went on to define perfumes even more while the Persians and Arabs also were partners in the same. Today, perfumes are used in different cultures all over the world. The western society uses it in their own style while the eastern side has its own set of fragrances. Not to forget, the Islamic world also appreciates a person who applies non-alcoholic perfume and smells good most of the time, especially on a Friday.

Different Forms of Non-Alcoholic Perfumes

There are many different forms of these non-alcoholic perfumes. They can be made purely with the help of different essential oils that enhance the skin and bring about lots of fragrance as well. One can even combine different types of oils and apply them to act as a perfume. This is because the oil absorbs within the skin and the fragrance is maintained throughout.

For all your non-alcoholic perfume knowledge, I shall let you know that this is a really good option to go for in comparison. Different oils can be used to treat and maintain the skin besides having the fragrance as well. Let me know if you still have any queries, the comment section is all yours.

The Beverage of the Goddess

Almond milk is a plant milk with a creamy texture and nutty taste. It contains neither cholesterol nor lactose and is often consumed by the lactose-intolerant and others who wish to avoid dairy products, including vegans. Commercial almond milk comes in sweetened, unsweetened, plain, vanilla and chocolate flavors, and is usually enriched with vitamins. Recipe and photo from Lasofra. The good thing is that you can make your own almond milk at home, and here is how.

What you need

∴ 4+ 1 Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds, preferably organic
  • 2 cups water + more for soaking
  • 1 cup raw almonds, preferably organic

  • Sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, to taste, optional

∴ Instructions

1 – Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with about an inch of water. They will plump as they absorb water. Let stand on the counter, covered with a cloth, overnight. You can also refrigerate for up to 2 days.  It will do the job  😉  ❤ Simple.

2- Drain the almonds from their soaking water and rinse them thoroughly under cool running water. You will notice at this point the almonds feel a little squishy if you pinch them.

TIPS : It’s best to discard the soaking water because it contains phytic acid, which inhibits the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

3- Place the almonds in the blender and cover with 2 cups of water. Pulse the blender a few times to break up the almonds, then blend continuously for two minutes. The almonds should be broken down into a very fine meal and the water should be white and opaque.

4- Pour the almond mixture into the strainer. You can then squeeze & press (with clean hands) to extract as much almond milk as possible. You should get about 2 cups.

Done! Taste the almond milk, and if a sweeter drink is desired, add sweetener to taste.

Benefits of Almond Milk:

While almond milk is becoming more and more popular, it is important to note that it does not provide as much protein or calcium to be a complete substitute, so make sure you receive adequate amounts from other sources. However, almond milk has a lot of benefits. It help with weight management and the following 😉
