Natural Vs. Synthetic Fragrance

Here at Incense Falls, we use natural fragrances only. We value your well-being and take pride in selling you quality products! 

Synthetic fragrances are extremely detrimental to your health. Sure, synthetic fragrances are cheaper and more convenient, but it is 
never worth compromising your physical and mental health. 

Today, I’m going to explore the difference between natural and synthetic fragrances. 

What’s Wrong With Synthetic Fragrance? 

Synthetic fragrances are derived from an unnatural origin. They often contain parabens, phthalates and synthetic musks. Breathing in these airborne toxins can be harmful. 

People report a host of negative symptoms, including: 

  • Headache
  • Sore throat 
  • Nausea
  • Irritation in eyes and nose 
  • Migraines
  • Dizziness 

It can lead to serious health consequences, such as: 

  • Birth defects
  • Allergies
  • Hormonal problems
  • Metabolic disease
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Organic system overload


The above list contains serious, life-altering symptoms. 

How to Avoid Synthetic Fragrance 

Do your research!! Notice that here at Incense Falls, we explicitly mention that our products are all natural and do not include any synthetic fragrances. Also, your nose may help you out. 

Typically, natural scents are more soft and subtle. Synthetic fragrances are strong, potent, and may burn your eyes. Check the ingredients- if there are lots of ingredients that you don’t understand, it’s probably fake! 

Look for plant-based ingredients. Ask the manufacturer a few questions if you’re still feeling confused. 

What is a Natural Fragrance? 

The ingredients are 100% pure! In fact, they can be found in the raw material. In order to extract the fragrance from the raw material, one uses distillation, expression, and extraction techniques. 

Synthetic fragrances contain fixatives, causing the scent to “fix” or attach to your skin and follow you around all day. This is why so many people desire synthetic scents. 

Natural fragrances will blend in with the aroma of the room or your natural scent, creating an evolved, layered, and changing smell. 

Benefits of Natural Fragrance and Aromatherapy 

Aromatherapy has a plethora of physical and mental health benefits:

  • Can ease anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues
  • Can cause physical healing
  • Can manage pain and ease joints
  • Can improve sleep quality
  • Fight bacteria
  • Improve headaches
  • No testing on animals
  • They are 100% real
  • They do not contain harmful chemicals
  • They can give off a unique and healing aroma


Using exclusively natural fragrances is important to us. We wouldn’t want to sell you something harmful. After all, you’re purchasing the product to reap the total benefits, right?

You want to feel well in every dimension, from sleep quality to mood improvement. There are long-lasting repercussions to synthetic fragrances. Not every manufacturer will be honest with you. Make sure to do your research before purchasing a product.

Your health is of the utmost importance! I hope you find ease and wellness when you breathe in natural aromas.
