Plant-Based Home Fragrances–Not Just For Vegans!

Here at Ayoka Essentials, we believe that plant-based home fragrances are for everyone–not just vegans!

Not convinced? Here are just a few reasons why plant-based home fragrances are beneficial for both your health and your home:

#1: Vegan Home Fragrances Are Better For Your Health

Synthetic fragrances have long been connected to a range of adverse health effects, such as, but not limited to:

  • Asthma flare-ups

  • Respiratory difficulties

  • Mucosal symptoms

  • Migraines

  • Neurological concerns

  • And contact dermatitis

As the primary source of indoor air pollutants, synthetic-fragranced consumer products have long been associated with negative side effects due to the common use of respiratory irritants as ingredients. Because fragrances are considered trade secrets, manufacturers are not required to disclose the specific chemicals used in their ingredient deck.

When opting for all-natural, all-vegan fragrances, you can rest easy knowing that you aren’t coming into contact with potentially hazardous chemicals!

#2: Natural Scents Smell Better

Rather than wrinkle your nose at the too-strong burst of synthetic scents that standard candles and deodorizers feature, opting for natural oil scents guarantees you (and your home!) the kind you’d want soothing, not pervasive.

At Ayoka Essentials online store, we offer myriad natural scents like golden amber, bergamot, vanilla, and ginger.

Our products are always free from toxins, phthalates, parabens, carcinogens, toxins, and mutagens, creating the healthiest way to fragrance your home.

#3: Vegan Perfumes Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Not only are vegan candles better for your health–but they’re also an accessible way of reducing your carbon footprint!

Even if you chow down on steak daily, opting for vegan home fragrances means you’re doing your part to mitigate carbon emissions…and make our world greener.

(And if you’re wondering what fragrances have to do with animal agriculture, then you should know that the popular scents castoreum, musk, and ambergris are all derived from animals!)

#4: Buying Plant-Based Fragrances Makes You An Ethical Shopper

In the world of fast fashion and unethical conglomerates, buying plant-based fragrances means that you can feel good knowing that you’re an ethical shopper–especially if you support sustainability efforts and give back to local communities.

As a proudly female-owned business committed to providing only the highest-quality home products, we dedicate ourselves to philanthropy and donate 10% of our profits to charities near and dear to us.
