Essential Oils Used In Royal Fragrance Perfumes Makes It Healthy To Use: Study

Royal fragrance perfumes come in many different shapes and sizes. But what is common in most of these high end products is the use of essential oils which makes it easier for them to smell great and also immensely healthy to use. By using high quality perfume oils, women can create their own persona, but if you end up using cheap quality ones, it can have severe side effects as well.


Know your perfume


Before you settle for a particular fragrance or brand, it is important for you to know what is going in your body. Most companies which produce a wide variety of perfumes hide behind the curtains and doesn’t share the ingredients details with their consumer. This keeps the consumer in the dark and more often than not may lead to a serious health issue among them.


By using essential oils in the manufacturing process of perfumes you will be safe from its harmful side effect.


What to avoid in order to stay safe?


  1. Strong Smells- There are a lot of perfumes out there which come with an intense and very strong smell. The smell of these perfumes are so strong that it masks all other smells in the adjacent areas. If this smell is natural in occurrence then it might not be bad, but if it is artificially created it might have bad side effects.


Most companies use harmful chemicals in order to create this intense smell and there have been reported cases where this strong smell has caused consumers serious health issues. Due to this many organizations have banned the use of strong smell perfumes at their premises.


  1. Sensitive Perfumes- Your first and foremost priority should be to protect your body at all costs. Remember what goes on to your skin will have an effect on your body as well. Before purchasing a particular perfume, make sure that you are not sensitive to any of its ingredients. If you find that the manufacturer isn’t telling the ingredients used in the manufacturing process of the perfumes, stay away from that brand because you might be allergic to substances you are not aware of.


In conclusion, using essential oils in perfumes can have a soothing effect on your body and it will keep you healthy in the longer run. Therefore always go for soft incense fragrance oil and attar perfumes online.

This is for those who love kids books (from board books to YA books) and love to see characters from all over as well as places that are diverse as well. The co-founders, Mia Wenjen and Valarie Budayr, are looking for reviewers. And they would love the reviewers list to be worldwide if possible. Link is below along with link to cohosts for this year's book day on 25 January 2019.



Both Mia and Valarie have been promoting Multicultural Children's Book Day

1. to raise awareness of those books that already celebrate diversity in children's literature

2. to promote getting more diversity (characters from minority groups, special needs, far away places) in books to get more kids reading earlier and longer, and

3. to promote getting these books into the hands of Teachers and Librarians to share with their kids,

4. to promote resources for classrooms and libraries to help with lesson plans around diversity.

Yummah by Sarah Al Shafei
Yummah - Sarah A. Al Shafei

This is not bad by the standards of self-published books, but there isn’t much to recommend it unless you happen to be seeking a book set in Bahrain; it is currently the most popular book on Goodreads (admittedly, an English language-dominated site) set in that country. Titled “Yummah,” a word used in the book to mean “grandmother,” it seems to be the fictionalized life story of the author’s grandmother – a conclusion supported by the fact that toward the end, a favorite granddaughter appears who, like the author, is named Sarah, goes to college in Boston, and moves to Saudi Arabia for marriage.

The book begins sometime in the mid 20th century, and spans the time period from British colonial rule of Bahrain, to the country’s independence in 1971, the First Gulf War, and the beginning of the 20th century. It is narrated by a woman named Khadeeja and focuses on the domestic dramas of her own and her children’s lives. Khadeeja is married off at age 12, loses several people she loves and is abandoned by her otherwise apparently perfect husband as a pregnant mother of eight, but overcomes adversity and sees her children find love and success.

It’s a quick read, and the story moves briskly, covering an entire lifetime in fewer than 200 pages. It does suffer from several drawbacks, however. Khadeeja narrates the story in first person (except for a few brief sections told in third person from someone else’s perspective), and her perspective is not particularly nuanced; she romanticizes child marriage and makes sweeping statements like “in my days the twelve-year-olds were still innocent, their eyes still had their childish sparkle and their hearts were pure as angels’,” or, on the day of Bahrain’s independence, “there wasn’t a single soul on the island of Bahrain who wasn’t happy.”

She’s also a heavily romanticized character herself, with no apparent flaws, and called an angel even by her ex-husband, who is similarly romanticized despite his abandonment of his pregnant wife and eight kids. (I can sympathize with his shame at losing his job and his initial decision to flee, but to never send for them or even send money once he’s back on his feet – when they’re on the verge of eviction and the older kids are leaving school to support the family – did not seem nearly so forgivable to me as it was to every character in this book. That said, my guess is that this book is based on the author’s grandmother’s life, and if this is treated as a great love story in her family, well, at least it’s authentic I suppose.)

Beyond that, there are problems one expects from a self-published book. It appears to have been copyedited by spellcheck, given the number of misused words. For the most part, the author’s English seems fluent, but she struggles with prepositions (Khadeeja is concerned about someone’s “desire in revenge”; a character comments that “life has been cruel on you”), the occasional word is jarring to the English-speaking reader (the dialogue tag “screamed” is overused, including even for a polite greeting at one point), and there are some run-on sentences and some passages which lapse into the present tense although most of the book is in the past tense. Meanwhile, I was never sure whether the seeming expansion of the age gaps between Khadeeja’s children (all nine born within eleven or twelve years) was a continuity error, or whether society really was changing so rapidly that the middle and younger children wind up seeming a full generation younger than their older siblings.

All in all, this was a quick and painless read, especially since my expectations for a self-published book were so low. It’s not one I would recommend on its literary merits, but it’s a perfectly decent choice for those looking for a story set in Bahrain.

Out in Oct
A History of the World in 21 Women - Jenni Murray

Disclaimer: ARC via Librarything


                We love lists.  We make shopping lists, reading lists, to read lists, movie lists, and on and on.  Any book or article that publishes a list is going to get called on that list.  So, let’s get that bit out of the way.


                Murray’s list of 21 women starts in Ancient Egypt and goes to Cathy Freeman.  There is a total of eight women of color, three from the US, and two from France and Russia.  Every continent is represented, except South America, which is a bit annoying.  Bonus points for having Australia represented by an Aboriginal woman.  There is a nice mixture of women in the arts, politics, and sciences.  It’s true that a reader does wonder why some lesser known women aren’t mentioned, why, in some cases, the standard women are trotted out.  And couldn’t a woman from South America make the list?  But all the women either were or are highly influential, usually in more than one field. 


                But quite frankly, it was so wonderful to see Toni Morrison here, and she isn’t the only artist.


                Jenni Murray, host of BBC’s Women Hour, details 21 women using an amazing personal voice as well as with a good critical eye.  At times her personal admiration really does shine though.  Honesty, Merkel, c’mon, let Murray talk to you, basically so she can ask you if you really did read Playboy to understand Trump. 


                Murray also does not whitewash the flaws in the women.  IN fact, at times, she notes her own conflicts with some of the actions the women take – for instance Queen Isabella’s prosecutions of Jews.  She handles Bhutto’s political history deftly.  The tone of the writing is totally engaging, and the book is quite easy to dip in and out of.  It is as if you are listening to Murray present on the radio.


                The portraits of each woman are incredibly lovely.

The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World: A New Generation's Handbook to Being Yourself and Living with Purpose by Alison Lea Sher
The Millennial's Guide to Changing the World: A New Generation's Handbook to Being Yourself and Living with Purpose - Alison Lea Sher

I received this ARC at no cost to me for a honest review.


This book was a pleasing experience where I felt enlightened and experience of growth once I had put this book down. I highly recommend this for generations to come before and after the millennial because it is a wonderful breath of fresh air to the honest truth behind Sher's words whom need reassurance and hope along with the ones who need the insightful read. I can happily give it 3.5 stars due to the fact I disconnected and very bobbled down by terms like I was readying a book for class. It could help anyone who read it to understand the Millennial struggle but it just wasn't a book for me although I am in the demographic the book speaks of.
