One thing we do want to mention is the health benefits of using natural products. “Natural products have a long and impressive history as sources of medicine and as important biological research tools,” said Josephine Briggs, M.D., NCCIH director. Throughout human history, natural products have been used as a means of improving human health.
It is very apparent that every plant has a purpose of why they are here, each with their own unique healing qualities not only doing their physiological job, but having a psychological effect on us too, such as rejuvenation, happiness, peacefulness, and relaxation.
They say we lather and put in our bodies at least 130 chemicals every day, What a cocktail! So really is it even a choice, rubbing in our skin a chemical cocktail or a healing relaxing soothing, moisturising oil from the petals of a plant?
Women are increasingly interested in natural products, but the task of scrutinizing and understanding all the chemical compound names and figuring out is it natural or synthetic in every bottle before purchase can be daunting.
You may while searching through our list come across natural and organic ingredients or organic blends that have names that read like a seriously dubious chemical. If you do, keep reading as something like dihydrogen monoxide is the scientific name for water or phenethyl alcohol, or 2-phenylethanol, an organic compound found in a variety of essential oils—like rose, orange blossom, ylang-ylang and geranium.
While putting this list together it was very apparent that there is now available cutting edge research and technology showing us that if you combine or manipulate certain natural chemical compositions that they can enhance each other’s performance in a synergistic way, making the most wonderful beneficial ingredients and giving effective results, and the research just keeps on getting better.
