I have not given much time to toiletry and beauty products so far in the blog which seems strange as this is one of the easiest ways that you can reduce your exposure to synthetic chemicals. It is also one of the first areas that I tried to tackle but due to the complexities of trying to decipher all of the chemical names it is also one that I am still trying to get to grips with. I have already shared the first changes that I made in my posts on switching to natural deodorant and using coconut oil as a beauty product but there are a huge array of other products which we routinely use for our skincare, bathing and make-up and I wanted to share some of the simple philosophies which I now follow when choosing my products.
I was really pleased when Amphora Aromatics asked me to review one of their new aromatherapy blends, primarily because I have become slightly obsessed about finding a natural air freshener that works (see earlier post on natural air fresheners). The oil burner is by far my favourite, especially using this aromatherapy blend.
