Many people have heightened awareness of the products and ingredients used in their everyday life and activity. With the many lawsuits and implications from using previously produced products, many people are looking to use natural products.
Products labeled as “organic” have come under scrutiny over the last few years. This is because being organic has many possible variables. Some organizations consider products organic when others do not. It begs the question, “What does organic mean?” The same question is often asking about natural products.
What does natural mean to you?
The definition of natural products may vary depending on the person or organization that you ask. For most people, the definition of natural includes that the ingredients used in the production of the product have been sourced naturally. The ingredients have not been developed synthetically in labs or factories.
Natural skin and body care
It is only natural to be worried about the products that you put in and on your body. Often people forget that our skin, the largest organ of our bodies, is porous. Anything placed on our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream and pumped throughout our bodies. Natural deodorant for women is a healthy choice. Using natural ingredients to fight body odor will not interfere with the body’s glands and organs working the way they are not meant to.
Natural bath and body products do not adjust your hormones and use human-created chemicals. Naturally, derived oils like coconut oil are incredibly effective in attaching themselves to dirt and bacteria.
Natural cleaning around the home
It can be a hard decision to make. While you want to have a clean home without germs and viruses, you should be worried about VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Inhaling toxic fumes from cleaning agents and gardening products is the greatest reason for many civil litigation cases. Using natural products can be as effective as harsh chemically derived cleaning agents. Many chemically derived cleaning agents have been shown to cause long-term damage to carpets, floors, and other surfaces.
Citrus fruits are incredibly acidic naturally. Real lemons add a fresh smell to your home. Adding it to water can clean away grease and other dirt. All while naturally cleaning your home!
Natural Pest Control
It may seem to be contradictory, but natural pest control for your home is available. Arsenic is a naturally derived poison and can kill people. Natural pest control solutions are not necessarily ineffective. Although naturally derived from plants and herbs, other natural remedies like essential oils can be incredibly potent. Essential oils are highly concentrated forms of natural products.
Natural pest control can be obtained from professional pest control companies or by growing specific plants around the house.
Living a natural life in the modern world does not demand that you live on the farm. Supermarkets stock many natural products, and many professional service companies offer a natural option.
If living a natural, healthy, and sustainable lifestyle is important to you, you are sure to find options. The most important thing is to ask if the question and be on the lookout.
