Have scent will travel.

The perfect travel companion, ideal for weekend jaunts to the mountain and quick trips to the tropics! Lavanila Laboratories presents the Healthy Fragrance Collection in two pretty, portable, and airplane friendly renditions—The Healthy Roller Ball Fragrance and The Healthy Fragrance One-Ounce Collection. Completely free of harsh chemicals typically found in fragrance, now you can enjoy Lavanila’s fresh, clean blends and revel in powerful, skin-healthy ingredients anytime, anywhere.

Lavanila has changed the way we spray and roll on fragrance with the World’s First Healthy Fragrance collection. The first to fuse luxury fragrance with natural science, all Lavanila scents are free of chemically-laden alcohol, petrochemicals, phthalates, synthetic colors, silicone, synthetic preservatives, sulfates, parabens, and propylene glycol that can dry and damage the skin and are instead formulated with 100% natural ingredients such as pure essential oils and skin soothing botanicals. With each spray or roll, a daily dose of 30 essential vitamins and minerals and 19 amino acids is delivered to the skin and locked below the skin’s epidermis via an exclusive marine technology.

Lavanila Healthy Roller Ball Fragrance ($19 each): Housed in a sleek, spill-proof bottle, this travel-sized roller-ball perfume eliminates the risk of spills—a must for any purse or cosmetics case.

Lavanila Healthy Fragrance One-Ounce Collection ($39 each): These cute and convenient minis fit in your carry-on cosmetics case so you never have to be without your favorite Lavanila fragrances, even on the plane.

Vanilla Grapefruit: a refreshing blend of pink grapefruit and warm Madagascar vanilla
