THE SKIN is the body’s largest organ and all product used on it is absorbed through the skin into the blood stream and into the organs.The organs and toxic blood,already sluggish from chemicals consumed from the food we eat ,is once again bombarded with added chemicals,which are absorbed through the skin.We should at all cost avoid skin care and hair products with harmful chemicals, in order to have better health.Herbal products are safe and very effective on the skin and hair.As a matter of fact they are healthy and good for us.
A warm herbal bath is the beginning of a beautiful skin. Wrap about a handful of your desired Jamaican herb or herbs in a terry cloth or a meshed pouch with approximately 1/2 cup oatmeal(to soften skin). Hang the pouch with herbs inside the warm bath water and let steep for 15-20minutes. Another way to prepare a herbal bath is to steep the herbal tea then pour it in the warn bath water.Add some herbal infused oil to bath water and enjoy for as long as you desire to relax and unwind.Herbal infused oils are easy to make , very soothing and great to moisten the skin.Jojoba oil and Extra virgin olive oil are two excellent oils for the skin, jojoba oil being the closest oil to the one produced by our skin.Moisturize your body with healthy herbal lotionsavailable in the health stores or ones you can make yourself ,at home.Herbs such as,aloe vera, comfrey,fennel,mint,dandelion,blackberry leaves,sage,rose petals,grated ginger,parsley,orange peel ,orange blossoms,marigold and alfalfa are very effective on the skin and products with these herbs are highly recommended for great skin care.You should be able to identify all the ingredients in the products you use on your skin and hair,this is surely one way to keep out harmful chemicals, free radicals and toxins from your organs and blood.The deodorants on the market have such toxic chemicals that are so harmful to the health of people especially women.These chemicals are absorbed into the glands that are next to the breasts and this is causing major health issues.We should really be very careful and read the labels on the deodorants .One harmful ingredient in deodorants is aluminum.Look for ”aluminum free deodorants” .
THE HAIR is one of the first thing that people notice when they look at you.We have to maintain it with the best products or it will get dull and very unattractive. Best products does not mean( or have to be) expensive products,but what is good for us.Jamaican Herbs like nettles, comfrey, aloe vera, Tuna leaves and many more listed here are great for a lustrous and healthy hair.The use of herbs in the hair will rejuvenate the scalp and hair shaft,which will enhance sheen and healthy growth. Harsh chemicals will basically give the reverse results.Try to make herbal shampoos and hair moisturizer and hair treatment at home for your hair , this will eliminate some of the unknown ingredients that are added in shampoos and you will be happy with the results.
Tuna leaves sliced down the middle is used as a shampoo to wash the hair and leaves the hair very soft . Ripe Avocado crushed and added to a few drops of extra virgin olive oil , left on the hair as a conditioner for approximately 10-15 minutes will leave the hair very healthy and with a nice sheen.
The options are very limited with healthy skin and hair care products . However if we go back to the basics ,by using the ingredients that we know and can recognize ,we should be on the right path. Regardless of how we want to look,if we care about our health then our best option is using Jamaican herbs for the hair and skin.
