History of Egyptian Oils
In ancient Egypt, extracted fragrance oils were used in rituals, the body and in the hair These ancient perfumes were much thicker than what we use now, similar to a honey or an olive oil consistency. They were potent and remained on the wearer all day.
Ancient Egyptians often used moringa, linseed, sesame and castor oils in their perfumes along with different plants, flowers and wood fragments. Some extracts of almond and olive oil were also used to increase the quality and pungency of the perfumes.
Many cannot wear perfume sprays or colognes, or some simply prefer to wear oils. This is because all perfumes contain ethyl alcohol that can cause allergic reactions to the skin. Alcohol is also an evaporating agent as it dries on the skin through out the day, delicate notes of the perfume diminish altering the aroma of the perfume dramatically.
Wearing authentic Egyptian Oils on your skin not only leave you smelling wonderful but is far more gentle to the skin. Your natural oils on your body will interact differently with each oil for you than it will for another wearing the same scent. This produces a fragrance unique to you and only you. Egyptian Oils is truly a more sophisticated way of wearing perfumes. Fragrance can last up to 12 hours on the skin.
To wear Egyptian Oils... is to wear fragrance that are never offensive or over powering.... just balanced, natural and memorable.
