Humankind has been driven by one simple goal throughout the ages: be attractive to the opposite sex.
Recorded history depicts Egyptian woman covering themselves with colored pigments, bathing in flower petal covered pools, and anointing their bodies in fragrant oils. These oils were made from olives, almonds, sesame, and safflowers and contained fragrances made from steeping wildflowers, herbs, and resins in water.
Romans, Greeks, and Turks took pride in the art of the bathhouse. Scented bath waters laced with salts, powders, and then adding boiled herbs and flowers to the water was discovered to linger on the skin long after leaving the bath.
As time progressed, so did the beauty concoctions of creams, oils, soaps, laundry detergents, and eventually, hair shampoo.
Human skin has a wonderfully complex system of naturally producing oils and shedding dead layers of skin to promote naturally hydrated skin. The downfall to this system is that it creates a pungent aroma and clothing absorbs the oils from the skin. Dirt and grime build up on the surface of the skin along with the dead layers of skin, adding to the ghastly aroma. This concoction also acts as a breeding ground for bacteria and quickly becomes a health risk to ourselves and to others around us.
