Just a little update on my chemical free products week. I decided to focus on bath and body products this week.
The first thing I did was collect all of my bubble baths and shower gels and give them to my friends and family. I was actually shocked at how many of these products I currently own. It got me thinking, turning to natural home made products will save me a fortune. Bye bye high end bath & body product addiction!
After getting rid of said chemical filled products I realised that I hadn’t given very much thought to the alternative. Really all I had done til then was purchase an organic shampoo, I was far from informed. It was at this stage that I started to research. I am officially fascinated.
I have been educating myself on the magic of essential oils and natural soap and lotions. I have even bought myself a few books on the subject. So far I’ve managed to create my own body scrub, moisturiser, body butter, soap and bath oil. Not only did I focus on the natural aspect of my creations, I made sure the ingredients were organic and blended with appropriate essential oils for my skin type. I have to say, I am a little proud of myself.
In a previous video I mentioned something I made at home that got rid of the hideous bumps at the back of my arms. Well that was one of the soaps I made blended with particular oils for irritated skin. It works perfectly! Not a red bump in sight.
I am officially converted.
How do you feel about natural products?
