When it comes to personal care, we often get comfortable and complacent in our daily routines. We have our favorite products that we have been using over the years, and suddenly we realize that we have only used the product out of habit. Although we may be comfortable with our routine, it is important to ask ourselves, “What am I putting on/in my body?”
Unfortunately, many of the personal hygiene and beauty products on the market today contain potentially-harmful chemicals. How often do we take inventory of the toxins we regularly put on or in our bodies?
Let’s take a look at deodorants. There are chemicals and questionable ingredients used in deodorants that may be absorbed into the body through the skin. If you want to avoid these chemicals, consider trying a natural deodorant made with essential oils and other natural ingredients which are free of aluminum, parabens, artificial colors, and fragrances.
Ditch the chemical-ridden perfumes. While they may smell nice, many perfume formulas are full of synthetic chemicals. Instead of inhaling or absorbing these chemicals, why not swap your pricey perfumes for the naturally uplifting aroma of essential oils?
Give your hair a break. By swapping out your regular hair care products and taking a little help from essential oils, you can reduce some of the damage done by coloring and styling while you enjoy the lovely smell of essential oils on your hair.
Be kind to your skin. Many products on the market contain harsh and potentially damaging chemicals. Cleansers, moisturizers, and toners infused with the powerful properties of essential oils can help with your skincare needs.
