What are Natural Body Creams and Lotions?
When we apply creams and lotions of synthetic value to our bodies, we are using unnatural remedies. This due to one plain fact that these synthetic products have never been tested for longevity.
What I mean by that is, they might test them on animals for 10 – 20 years but we know that some symptoms of allergies and illnesses do not surface for much longer than that. Now we know there are many ‘tried and true’ Chinese and Japanese remedies that have been used for hundreds of years, and they use natural herbs that have been shown to have the curing properties. These recipes have been passed down through generations and are known withing the communities. Even in Western countries like mine in Australia, we have natural remedies for certain ailments.
So Why Should We Natural Products?
Our bodies are fragile when it comes to ailments, and most humans don’t have such a high tolerance to pain or discomfort. In fact, we believe it is our right to be as less pain-free and as much comfort as is able, due to the tremendous improvements in identifying causes of sickness in humans. However, we need to be mindful that, most businesses are focused on making a profit, and less puts a lot of pressure on them to perform; ie. have a product that improves a circumstance. Of course we love it if it does, but if we use it and we receive side effects days, weeks or years later, we then realise we should waited until it was proven to not damage our body. Natural herbs have been consumed for thousand of years so we can be assured that they are safe.
What Should we watch for when supposedly buying natural Body Creams and lotions?
Unfortunately there are many people that sell 2nd grade or diluted products. Using excess water, oils or perfume agents to extend the longevity and expand the bulk of their products. This leads to, firstly a weaker product, secondly the additives can make the product more toxic to humans, and thirdly it creates the premise that there could be side effects.
I always look at the ingredients label of products as it gives me an indication of how natural the product might be. A really good indication is to notice if any of the ingredients is made up of products that are very hard to pronounce. Remember, ‘There is Nothing New under the Sun’, so, if it is any word that you do not recognise, it means that it has been made up and there by is synthetically made. I also look for mentions of preservatives as these are also mostly synthetic in nature. Another bad thing is some companies at colour for aesthetic reasons. Sometimes the added colour combined with other elements can be very harmful. Of course, one main reason why people buy the synthetic products is that they are quite often much cheaper than the natural products. But this should indicate as natural products are made with ‘tried and tested over thousand of years herbs’ it denotes a quality that could not be equalled by the large Synthetic manufacturer.
If we wish to take care of our bodies and live a long life, our first priorities should be to vigilant of what we put on our body skin. It is the largest organ of our body so has to be the most important.
If we are careful what we put on our skin, we can live safely knowing our vital organs, heart, lungs, and liver are secure and we will live a long life
