Argan Oil Has Its Ways

There so many essential oils out there, and they are used for a variety of purposes. Whether it is for medical, cosmetic, or therapeutic reasons, the right essential oil at the right time can provide relief and vitality.

Every day, more people are starting businesses in the health and wellness industry. This means a few things, but for the everyday consumer, it means lower prices, and often – freebies! You can sign up to a newsletter or what not, and receive free samples of different products. Many times, these will be sent to you, and the company will ask for a genuine review of the product. This is one marketing strategy that I can get behind. No paying for reviews, no shady deals, and no link-pushing. You like it? Let others know. You didn’t like it? Let us know how we can improve. Simple.

So, I ended up ordering an argan oil hair conditioner. This was in the recent winter, and I felt I needed something new to spruce up my locks. It did the job nicely. I sent them a review, gave them a 4 out of 5 (because I felt it was a bit too watery when it first arrived), and I have been enjoying their products in the summer too. This is not a marketing blog, so I am not going to name names. But let’s just say that argan essential oil is one which I can see does a lot of good for my hair and my scalp. I was never really prone to dandruff, but I would occassionally flake, especially in the winter. And after using this conditioner several times – I wash once a week – I saw that there was a better feeling, and less flakes overall. I guess I needed some argan and lavender in my body.

Getting free samples of cosmetics products is great. It lets you experiment with various substances and consistencies, without spenidng a dime. Plus, sometimes, there will be an e-book or newslater which can help you grow a bit smarter. Sometimes. This does not apply to all companies. Some of them could be scams, no doubt. Not sure how that works, really, but I never felt cheated or otherwise wronged by any of these companies. Some of them had better products than others, and I know this because I gave each one of them a try, or sometimes more than a try. These sample products are often enough for a while, since some products are only used once or twice a week. Honeydew products has amazing products and if your interested in a free sample check them out!

Being able to try out different substances and seeing which ones are the ones which you react best to – this is what is so great about the internet. You help these companies out by providing a real review, and they help you by sending you products to try out. I see it as a win-win. Obviously, if the website or company look shady, steer clear. Another thing? Don’t trust everything you read online. Not even this blog post! 🙂 Check out shop natures design facebook page as well as all of their amazing products.

Essential Oils

T here are so many essential oils to choose from, no matter the situation. There are some which I have been using for many things: lavender, rosemary, peppermint. Some of them, I discover through my herbal medicine guy, who is also into aromatherapy. I go for an annual checkup with an MD and an alternative medicine practitioner. I get my blood taken and tested, I give blood (if everything’s okay with the test), and I get a quasi-physical done by both. I am young enough to be able to skip over major things, and being in shape doesn’t hurt either.

I try and keep my body in motion, take steps instead of elevators, and stay away from certain foods. I believe that as long as you keep things in moderation, there is a good chance you will be able to beat the odds. But, then again, there is a lot you can’t factor in, because we just don’t know. Maybe I will live to a ripe old age, with my mind and body in tact. Maybe not. All happens as the Force wills it.

There are no magical solutions here. You can’t expect to be in perfect health and prime condition, if you mistreat yourself. There are exceptions to every rule, but generally speaking it is a difficult thing to keep up. You need to keep things under your control, because if you don’t, it could be to your detriment. I am not trying to scare you. I don’t have to. You don’t need to be a scientist to see what people are dying from these days. No, sir. Honeydew products is your one stop shop to begin your healthy lifestyle.

Essential oils seem like such a small change, but in fact they can make a significant difference. There is a lot that goes on under the surface. Literally, under the surface of our skin. We need to start focusing some more on what goes on under the hood of our ride, our vessel, our body. It is the most important tool we have, and it is up to us to keep it as healthy as can be. There is a lot controversy over what healthy really is. Take the food group pyramid for example. It is affected by Corporate America’s needs and desires. No point in denying that. The dairy and meat industries are huge. They have a lot of say, and that’s no joke. And there is no point in denying it, either.

How can we be sure that what we are doing is the best thing for us? We can’t. All we can do is try to be more aware of what it is that our bodies are trying to signal to us. We need to let our food be our medicine, as much as possible, and to trust out feelings. The next time you have a headache, try inhaling some sage instead of popping an advil. This is how healing starts. I am not complete abstinence from modern medicine, but I am saying more awareness of ourselves and our bodies.
