Wrapture Fragrant Balm by Kristin Omdahl for Eucalan

History of Balms and Perfume

The word perfume comes from the Latin perfumare, meaning “to smoke through”. Perfumery, as the art of making perfumes, began in ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Indus Valley Civilization and maybe Ancient China. Later on, it further rdeveloped by the Arabs and the Romans.

Perfume was first used in religious rituals. Burning incense and applying balms and ointments scented with essential oils were the two main practices. Although the art of making perfume became much more refined over the centuries in Europe, it is the ancient invention of perfume that inspired me to create the Wrapture Fragrant Balm.

What is the Wrapture Fragrant Balm?

Wrapture Fragrant Balm is an all-in-one product which can be used as a fragrant perfume as well as to moisturise dry skin. The balm is a portable, compact handbag essential that is all natural, alchohol-free, and vegan; it contains no preservatives, colour or petroleum, and it comes in a durable tin that won’t leak. And it comes in the intoxicating scent of night-blooming jasmine essential oil.

“I am passionate about using natural products whenever possible for my home, my family and myself,” says designer Kristin Omdahl. “Essential oils have been my perfume of choice for years, for the aromatherapy benefits as well as my personal choice to avoid synthetic chemical fragrance. But oils are difficult to carry in your purse, and especially difficult for travel. I love carrying my Wrapture Fragrant Balm in my purse. It’s great for rough skin, cuticles, dry hair, but my favorite is to dab it on my pulse points & behind my ears for a pick-me-up subtle fragrance. It makes me smile.”

Updated 1/21/2021: Wrapture Fragrant Balm has been discontinued.
