A vast majority of modern day bathing products such as soaps and shampoos, including those that are used for infants, contain heavy traces of chemicals that can cause damage to the human body’s internal organs such as liver and kidneys. A chemical known as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate or SLS is the main culprit behind this and research has shown that it even has the ability to affect the reproductive system.

Faced with the risk of being exposed to such dangers due to the use of chemical based bathing products, most consumers have now woken up to the benefits of natural bathing products that are not only cost effective but also widely recommended by doctors as well. So let us take a look at a few of them now:

  • Natural bath salts Bath salts made from natural ingredients can be used as a replacement for soap for your everyday bathing needs. It is sold in popular organic body shops and you can even prepare it at home in a few simple steps. All you need is a small quantity of Epsom, a couple of drops of your favorite organic oil (jojoba or almond) followed by a few drops of your favorite aromatherapy oil (rosemary or jasmine). Mix all of these together in a bowl and store it in an air-tight container.
  • Natural Shampoo You can easily find the steps in the internet to prepare a completely chemical free shampoo from homemade ingredients. Some of the ingredients that go into making an organic shampoo include the likes of coconut milk, essential oils, liquid Castile soap and Vitamin E oil. Such organic shampoos have a shelf life of more than a month if used and preserved in the correct manner. It would be advisable to prepare them in small quantities at first so that you can determine how much your weekly usage is. Based on that, you can go ahead and create bulk quantities to last you for a month or so.
  • Natural Bath Scrubs Organic bath scrubs can be made from a wide range of ingredients ranging from lemons to lilac oils. They can be conjured up in a jiffy and work great for hot and humid summers and prevent your skin from getting damaged when exposed to sunlight. One of the main ingredients of organic bath scrubs always tends to be sugar because it gives the coarse texture to the scrub that helps to open up the pores on your skin and exfoliates it. Hence, the buildup of dead skin cells is eliminated.
  • Natural Body Lotion A body lotion can be of great use to you if you want to retain the moisture in your skin and not allow it to get dry. To create your own natural body lotion, just add a small quantity of glycerin to a cup filled one-third with orange flower water. Whisk the mixture till they are combined together and store it in a humidity free place. Apply this lotion before you step out into the sun or after your bath.

5 Reasons I Love Natural Organic Shampoo

I recently changed from using store bought, chemically fragrance shampoo to pure, natural organic shampoo.  What a difference it makes with the natural sensations and texture of my hair.  The great thing about organic shampoo is how clean it makes your hair feel.  It not only gets rid of excess oils and dirt, but does not strip the hair of its natural moisture.  With a normal shampoo, the contains chemicals and ingredients that can be very harsh and potentially damaging to your hair, dry out your scalp, aggravate oil glands, eat away hair follicles and in extreme cases cause cancer or other serious illnesses. Organic shampoos are healthier and slightly higher in price, but the healthy benefits are long lasting.  They have natural minerals and botanicals (made from, or containing plants) filled with nutrients and vitamins.  They also have natural moisturizing oils in them that give your hair a soft, healthy look and feel.  One important component to organic shampoo is beta glucan, which has immune-enhancing qualities which are helpful for people with sensitive skin or other conditions.

Organic shampoo can come in all types of scents when essential oils are added to the base ingredients.  Essential oils are ”any of a class of volatile oils obtained from plants, possessing the odor and other characteristic properties of the plant, used chiefly in the manufacture of perfumes, flavors, and pharmaceuticals.”  Some of the more popular scents are lavender, shea butter, aloe vera, hemp, orange citrus, almond cookie, lemongrass, and my favorite, black liquorish.

Our skin has the potential to absorb what we put on it, up to 60%!  Imagine all the chemicals from all the things we touch and feel, being absorbed into our bodies.  Natural organic shampoo and conditioners are healthier, environmentally sound, and a benefit to your skin and hair.  The chemicals found in store bought shampoo can harm not only your skin, but can cause damage to the environment as well.
