When buying personal care or cleaning products, look for natural or organic ingredients that care for our bodies as well as the environment we live in. Choose products made with pure essential oils (instead of artificial fragrances) and botanicals (pure plant material) that are either organically grown or wild crafted from nature using methods that sustain nature’s ecology.
Make sure that the product is made with natural carrier oils. These oils dilute the concentrated essential oils and help specific nutrients and moisturizers to be carried across the skin barrier and into the body. Natural and non-toxic ingredients restore energy, revitalize the skin and hair, promote peace of mind, clean and disinfect the body, clean and disinfect your surroundings, and they do it while preserving the environment.
The two most efficient methods for obtaining healing substances are absorption and inhalation. These two methods are better than digestion because they do not compete with the acids in our stomach or the foods we eat.
Absorption refers to the uptake of substances into cells and the bloodstream through applying them to the skin. This process happens when we apply creams, oils, soaps and shampoos with nutrients (or on the negative side, toxins) on the top layer of our skin; they are then absorbed into the deeper skin layers and into the bloodstream.
Inhalation is the intake of vapors or gas through the nose or mouth into the lungs. Healing vapors and pleasing aromas (or negatively, toxins in the air) are absorbed through the lungs into the bloodstream. This is the basis of “aromatherapy.” Products that are introduced into our bodies by inhalation include room fresheners, diffuser oils and steams, and household cleaning products.
