Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It’s also highly permeable, so any product you put on your skin has the potential to seep into your bloodstream and spread throughout your entire body!
Many of us slather on LOTION throughout the day, especially during the dry winter months. We put it on our hands multiple times a day or apply to our legs after showering every morning. Our babies and children get “lotioned up” after their evening baths or as part of their bedtime routine.
But if you check out your lotion’s label, what might you find? Those old beauty product standbys: parabens, fragrance, triclosan, sulfates, more fragrance, formaldehyde, added colors or dyes… and did I mention fragrance?
Give your skin a break and reduce your toxic load by switching to our SPA HAND AND BODY LOTION. It contains the moisturizing properties of Jojoba, Sunflower, and Macadamia Seed Oils and will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. It absorbs quickly and feels non-greasy.
This LOTION is unscented and does NOT contain Essential Oils, which makes it completely customizable! Need to relax and get better sleep? Squirt a dollop of LOTION into the palm of your hand, add a couple drops of Lavender or the Restful Blend, mix up, and apply. Not only are you nourishing your skin, but your body receives the calming benefits of sleepy-time oils.
Having trouble waking up or staying alert throughout the day? Add one drop of Peppermint and one drop of Wild Orange to the HAND AND BODY LOTION and apply to the back of your neck for an invigorating pick-me-up for your senses.
The combinations and benefits are endless!
Summertime often brings a reduced need for hand and body lotion, but that’s also the time of year when our attention turns to a special kind of lotion: SUNSCREEN. When you take the time to look at the ingredients in most commercial sunscreens, you can begin to wonder which is worse — slathering your body with all those chemicals or skipping it and risking sun exposure.
This might sound strange, but a great alternative to toxic sunscreen is our DIAPER RASH CREAM, which is part of our Baby Line. Although it was formulated with soothing our little one’s sensitive skin in mind, it makes a fantastic natural solution for sun protection, due to the fact that it contains Zinc Oxide, Carrot Seed Oil, and Lavender Essential Oil, three of the most effective ingredients in natural sunscreen. You definitely don’t have to be a baby or toddler to use or benefit from this product.
While you probably don’t need to apply nearly as much LIP BALM as you do lotion, it’s still important to make sure that what you’re putting on your lips is natural and free of chemicals and toxins.
Instead of impulse purchasing a random lip balm at the checkout line the next time you grocery shop, try one (or all!) of our SPA LIP BALMS. They are made up of plant oils such as Moringa, Avocado, and Beeswax, all of which hydrate, soothe, and moisturize the delicate skin of your lips. Essential Oils add three unique flavors:
Original: Peppermint and Wild Orange Essential Oils.
Tropical: Clementine, Lime, and Ylang Ylang Essential Oils.
Herbal: Spearmint, Marjoram, and Lemon Verbana Essential Oils.
