Many are choosing safer and healthier products these days whether it is food, cosmetics, personal care, or house hold cleaners. As health awareness continues to increase more and more folks are realizing the subtle dangers many of these chemical infested products have on our overall well being. This has led to a significant increase in sales for green products. Not only are you reaping many healthy benefits by using such products like natural skin care, or making your own multi-purpose cleaners, but you are also being a great steward to the land in which you live.
Where does all the waste go?
We have to face the truth here, and ask where many of these synthetic products get disposed. Many of these products are disposed down toilets, showers, and sink drains which then get into our water supply. If we are not properly recycling these products they get tossed in the trash to either be burned or buried releasing those last remaining chemicals into the earth and air we breathe.

As we approach the cold and flu season many of us are searching for natural ways to build the immune system and treat cold and flu like symptoms. Many stock up on anti- bacterial soaps during this germ spreading season washing their hands often to prevent picking up a nasty cold. Washing your hands often is great practice, however those anti-bacterial soaps unnecessary. In fact studies have proven that households that use anti-bacterial soaps vs. those who don’t, not to have any less colds or sickness’s.
Tee Tree oil is just one of few essential oils used in the natural skin care industry that offers anti bacterial properties. A natural handcrafted goat milk soap bar with tee tree oil contains no harsh chemical such as Triclosan in them which are found in commercial anti-bacterial soaps. I highly recommend this alternative approach for an anti-bacterial soap.

Is our overall well being taken much more serious today than ever before? Many today are suffering from diseases such as cancer or diabetes, which has lead to many changing their not so healthy habits. Smoking is not as popular today as it was 20 years ago, and it’s as if everyone is counting calories, watching what they eat and making sure to get in plenty of exercise.
Regular exercise and eating healthy has ranked high on the importance scale, even if it cost a little more. Gym memberships, organic foods, vitamins, and nutritional supplements can be very expensive; however there is one thing that you could do to increase your overall well being, that is not at all expensive when compared to costly supplements, organic foods and exercise programs.
This inexpensive health solution would be choosing natural skin care. Many will refuse to spend four to five dollars on a bar of soap, but will spend hundreds of dollars on expensive nutritional supplements. The truth is your skin is the largest organ of the body and is permeable, what goes on, goes in as well.
