Who doesn’t like sweet
smell? Nose is the carrier of smell to the brain.
Human mind has the power to differentiate
between acceptable and unacceptable smells.
Acceptable smell is known as fragrance, which
can either be natural or artificial. Atmosphere with fragrance
is liked by everyone.
Fragrance creates great ambience. Natural
fragrance is nothing but the smell of flowers, scented wood
like sandalwood, rosewood, cedar wood, and so on, herbs &
grasses like rosemary, sage, lemongrass, and so on.
Even some parts of few herbs or plants like barks
of cinnamon, and cardamom have good smell and spread fragrance in
the place they are in.
We can stay at places that are without any
kind of smell; however, it is not possible for us to stay in places
that smell bad. Fragrance dominated by flowers is called floral
Natural fragrance is either present naturally
or is induced. The natural fragrance is spread in the atmosphere
by growing flowering plants in your garden.
Perfumes made from the mixture of alcohol
and water along with synthetic fragrant aromatic oils fall
under the category of artificial fragrance, while the mixture
mixed with natural aromatics fall under the induced natural
Soaps, shampoos, perfumes, detergents, fabric
softeners, household cleaning agents, and so on are with artificial
fragrance; however, the combination of chemicals and solvents
are done in such a way that you get the natural fragrance.
Nature is the reservoir for natural fragrance. You
get fragrance from materials with the origin of vegetable. The main
part of the plant with fragrance is the blossom. The other parts
like leaves, roots, and stem also have fragrance.
The leaves of eucalyptus, tuberose of rose &
jasmine, peel of orange and lemon, angelica roots, and so on are
few examples of natural fragrance.
Natural fragrance does not have
any harmful or side-effects whereas the induced or artificial fragrance
might cause side-effects, if not harmful on a long run.
