When it comes to beauty products, the effects
of the ingredients they contain can be more
than just skin deep. The cosmetics industry
uses thousands of synthetic chemicals in its
products, in everything from lipstick and
lotion to shampoo and shaving cream.
Many of these substances are also used in
industrial manufacturing processes to clean
industrial equipment, stabilize pesticides and
grease gears. And we can all agree that an

Coat the skin like
plastic wrap, disrupting the delicate acid
mantle and the good bacteria that protect our
skin from germs. Hinder the skin’s exposure to
oxygen and other nutrients needed for proper
detoxification and repair. Are not water
soluble so they attach to your cells and build
up in your body. They are very difficult for
your body to eliminate.
In addition, the
1,4-dioxane (which is not listed on ingredient
labels), is a petroleum-derived chemical that
is often found in sudsing items like body
wash, bubble bath, and shampoos. This chemical
has been listed as a possible carcinogen by
the International Agency for Research on
Cancer (IARC). Meanwhile, the National
Toxicology Program (NTP) has identified
1,4-dioxane as a “reasonably anticipated
carcinogen”. These are all very good reasons
to make more of your health and beauty
products at home, where you control the
quality, and the safety, of the ingredients.
here are some good alternatives and why...
Oil - Virgin coconut oil improved skin
barrier function. Coconut oil contains
antibacterial and antifungal properties, making
it the perfect ingredient to use to prevent
toenail infections and foot fungus.
butter - It has natural antibacterial
properties and is great for preventing stretch
marks, for wound healing, and as an anti-aging
treatment for skin. It naturally has an SPF of
about 5 and can be used as a daily sunscreen. I
use shea butter in my lotion, lotion bars,
deodorant, face cream, baby lotion, diaper cream
and many other recipes!
butter is another “butter” and a great
addition to natural beauty recipes. It imparts a
delicate chocolate scent, and I love it mixed
with mint or citrus in lotion bars, lotion or
face cream. It can be used interchangeably with

recipes include Shea butter, Cocoa Butter, and

condition and texture of the skin. It also has a
number of benefits in treating skin problems
like acne, eczema, and dry skin. Beeswax helps
in locking skin moisture, fostering the skin
cells and protecting the skin from environmental
damages. It contains powerful anti-bacterial,
anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties
that are all beneficial to the skin.

baby oil, salves, and after-shave balms often
need to be thinner than coconut oil and the
butters will allow. In these cases, I use a

kernel oil (my favorite). Apricot Kernel
has the most gentle scent and almond oil is also
relatively unscented. Olive oil is typically the
least expensive if you don’t mind the olive

up with essential oils.

thickening sauces when cooking and it also gets

|Effectiveness of Essential Oils
Essential oils probably exert
their most powerful and direct pharmacological
effects systemically via the blood supply to
the brain. They also have an indirect effect
via the olfactory nerve pathways into the
brain. Essential oil fragrances are absorbed
through blood circulation and nerve pathways
from the sinuses into the central glands of
the brain, which control emotional,
neurological, and immunological functions.
Essential oils are absorbed in
minute quantities through the skin, depending
on the oil, dilution, and application (carrier
oil, compress, etc). Many of the indications
for specific oils include various skin
Essential oils are inhaled
during treatment, which have a direct effect
on the sinuses, throat, and lungs. Many
essential oils are specific medicines for
Many essential oils have beneficial effects on
circulatory problems, both through dermal and
respiratory absorption. These oils enhance the

essential oil has been found to protect
corn crops from fungal infections.
Researchers discovered that the essential oil
was effective in keeping fungus at bay, offering
a natural, safer alternative to synthetic
chemicals that ultimately lead to the creation
of treatment-resistant pathogens. Furthermore,
it was discovered that oregano essential oil
only needs to be used in small amounts to
prevent corn crops from developing fungal
infections, and because the oils don't stay in
the water or soil for extended periods of time,
the toxicity to animals is low.
The main compound in oregano essential oil,
thymol, was found to be among one of the best
oils to have antifungal activity.
|It may come as no surprise that
essential oregano oil provides these benefits.
After all, its been heralded by many for use in
human health situations, often for its
antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial and
antiparasitic abilities. As an antifungal, it
can help protect the body from internal and
external infections; many enjoy using the oil to
treat skin infections.
Its antibacterial benefits include the ability
to maintain healthy gut flora and ward off
urinary tract and colon infections. And the List
goes on. . .
