Introduction

Perfumes and scented products are composed of toxic chemicals like acetone, toluene, ethyl acetate, formaldehyde and ethanol that are found on any list of toxic and hazardous chemicals. All these and other chemicals used in the manufacture of personal care products have been shown in animal studies to cause serious health problems and even death. That’s why we decided to create a natural perfume that is safe for the environment. So we thought that we must encourage the other people to try home-made perfumes or the all organic perfumes. It is safe and you yourself can be satisfied with the smell of the perfume. And the fragrance of sampaguita can create fresh atmosphere.People have used perfumes on their bodies for thousands of years in lesser or greater amounts dependant on fashion whims.The early Egyptians used perfumed balms as part of religious ceremonies and later as part of pre love making preparations.Other plants such as rose and peppermint were steeped in oils until a perfumed unguent (unguent is a healing ointment ) formed. The late 19th century was the first real era of perfume as we know it when new scents were created because of advances in organic chemistry knowledge. Perfume is made from about 78% to 95% of specially denatured ethyl alcohol and a remainder of essential oils. We found out that the production technique originated in Persia then spread through Arabia and India.
