“Reconnect with Nature” is a campaign of awareness about the vital importance of our connection with nature.
Since antiquity, perfume has always accompanied people’s lives and has always been an important part of human history.
Today, our campaign gives Natural Perfume a voice towards more awareness of the human need to reconnect with nature, as well as to recover and to protect our precious heritage.
Since the dawn of time, in every region of the world, people have been using plants for therapy.
They added plants to their food and their drink, they used them to make perfumes, cosmetics knowing the beneficial effects of each of them.
This precious and ancestral knowledge has been transmitted from generation to generation.
We can find it in cuneiform writings on Sumerian tablets around 1700BC.
Prescriptions were found in the “Ebers Papyrus” dated 1552 BC, in Dioscoride’s “Materia Medica” dated 78 AC, in the ”Codex Aniciae Julianae” dated 512 AC, and later in Paracelse and Leonard Fuchs works (XVIth century).
In ancient times around the world, perfume was used not only for spiritual purposes but also as therapy for a variety of illnesses.
Ancient Egyptians said: “Who breathes the smells of flowers, breathes the soul of flowers.”
Early Spanish settlers in North America gave Native American spiritual leaders the name "perfumeros" because of their observations of the widespread use of fragrant plants and flowers as medicinal treatments of their people.
A Chinese proverb says "A perfume is always a medicine" and the "The Book of Medicine" includes hundreds of perfume compositions used in healthcare. Therapeutic qualities of perfume depends on quality of plants and the world is rich in unknown plants to use. Some indigenous inhabitants still remember.
