Best Organic Perfumes for Travel!

Scent is a very powerful thing.  One whiff of exotic spices, & it can transport you to the hidden markets of Istanbul.  Smell tropical coconuts, & it can whisk you off to your very own tropical island in the Caribbean.  Scent has the power to transport us: it can make us feel like we’re on vacation, even when we’re not.  And of course when we’re on vacation, or traveling, it can keep us smelling delicious ~ even in & out of airports.  Enter: “Best Organic Perfumes for Travel.”

Best Organic Perfumes for Travel!

Perfume is typically loaded with chemicals.  Don’t be surprised if your favorite perfume contains: acetone, ethanol, benzaldehyde, formaldehyde, limonene, methylene chloride, camphor, ethyl acetate, linalool, or benzyl alcohol ~ not to mention, phthalates & those pesky parabens, both of which are believed to disrupt hormone activity.  If you don’t know what the hell any of these words mean, trust me: you probably don’t want them on your body!

Trying to find a great perfume can be like trying to find a needle in the proverbial haystack ~ let alone trying to find a natural one!  When I moved to Portland, Oregon & set foot in one of its Whole Foods Markets (aka “Whole Paycheck”), I finally found & fell in love with the brand of my dreams: Pacifica Beauty.  Now, I can’t travel or LIVE without these scents.  And I stock up on my favorites, for fear that they’ll eventually be discontinued! 

I’m a little obsessed.

I like smelling like I’m on vacation all year…

 Pacifica uses a natural grain alcohol as the base for their spray & roll-on perfumes.  Their solid perfume is made from a coconut & soy-based wax.  And their scents are derived from essential & natural oils sourced from around the  world.  The most important thing: I DON’T get a headache from their scents!!  Nearly ALL perfumes give me a headache (I assume it’s my body’s reaction to any number of toxic chemicals) ~ but NONE of Pacifica’s ever have. 

Finally, all of Pacifica’s products are gluten-free, 100% vegan, & cruelty-free.

Pacifica makes perfume in 3 types: 1) Traditional Spray (my favorite), 2) Roll-on (my least favorite ~ disappears too quickly), & 3) Solid Perfume (fits in purse).  Pacifica’s range of scents is INCREDIBLE ~ most have a tropical, beach-y vibe without being cloying.  And they’re a perfect travel companion that won’t get confiscated by TSA: all Pacifica perfumes under 1 oz.

Pacifica Solid Perfumes

  Pacifica’s solid perfumes are literally the size of a quarter.  TINY!!  Perfect for travel.  I keep 2-3 in my purse at all times; they work particularly well in cramped environments (like planes, trains, or automobiles) that don’t smell great!  Have you ever sat next to someone on a flight with major B.O.?  I mean, I have.  Whip out one of these little perfumes, & put a swipe right under your nose ~ then, presto!  You’ll smell fruity orange instead of body odor.  And no one will be offended that you sprayed perfume in their face.  Win-win.

Best Organic Perfumes for Travel

  If you’ve gone to Whole Foods & tried out the whole Pacifica line & still haven’t found a scent that suits you ~ try the Lavanila brand ~ particularly if you like vanilla scents.  Personally, I prefer Pacifica’s vanilla scent, but Lavanila is definitely another natural alternative, in the best organic perfumes for travel category.
Also, if you’re finding that your natural perfume isn’t lasting as long as you’d like (it likely will not last as long as traditional department store perfumes), try layering spray perfume over the solid perfume.  You can also try spraying it on top of Vaseline, which will make the fragrance “stick” longer.  Spray some scent in your hair (some people swear by this), or simply keep some perfume in your purse & re-apply as needed.  The major benefit: you won’t be spraying chemicals all over yourself!

Why I Use World Nomads Travel Insurance

Whenever I travel ~ especially if I’m traveling solo, I always get travel insurance.  It gives me the peace of mind to go out and have all kinds of adventures, because I know someone’s got my back.  Who do I use? World Nomads. They cover you whether you’re sky-diving, spelunking, or volcano-boarding in Nicaragua: they’re not your average insurance company.  Read more about travel insurance here.
