I grew up in a hippy household. For those of you who don’t know what that means I’ll explain. My parents were all about sharing and caring for each other and the environment. That meant growing our own food from fruits to vegetables. It also meant wearing clothes made out of organic material like hemp or flax. Lastly we used mostly natural soaps and household cleaners that were made out of organic natural chemicals that were and are safe for the environment.
To say the least I was indoctrinated in the life of living a natural life. This to me was and is a blessing. I have found a greater appreciation for the people and the world around me. It enables me to feel closer to our mother earth and my fellow man.
One of my favorite natural products are essential oils. People tend to look over the natural healing properties of essential oils. Aromatherapy is based on these properties, that certain oils react with our bodies and brains in certain ways creating a positive effect. For instance lavender oil is one of the most well-known oils. It’s famous for its ability to relieve stress and give the user an overall sense of wellbeing.
I use lavender oil in many different ways. My favorite use is to put a couple of drops into a running bath. The running water acts like a waterfall and mixes in the oil filling the bathroom with the amazing scent of lavender.
There are so many other great essential oils such as rosemary, jojoba, and argan oils. They all do amazing things for your body, hair and mind. But essential oils aren’t the only natural product I like to use. Most people don’t realize the amount of harmful chemicals their shampoo’s and hand soaps have. These chemicals are not only harmful to our health but to our environment. That is why I love to go to my local market and buy homemade soaps form friends I trust. I know that they only use the best and the safest ingredients.
So you can see why I’ve started a site called naturalcosmeticsusa.com It’s the way I was raised but even further It’s the way I lead my life and I want to share my knowledge with all of you!
