We expose ourselves to so many chemical nasties on a daily basis, whether it be in the food we eat, the water we drink or the air we breathe. We have created a toxic environment for ourselves.
The very least we can do is not compound the problem by slathering more chemical goo onto our fragile bodies. I’ve been making a gradual toiletry switch as I go through my bathroom shelves – out with the harsh chemical old and in with the safer, natural, cruelty-free organic new.
In the spirit of sharing I wanted to tell you about one of my new favourite product lines, Nature’s Gate Organics.
Nature’s Gate uses all natural herbs and botanicals in the creation of their extensive line of pH-balanced products. The company is as dedicated to being environmentally friendly and cruelty-free as it is to bringing the public a selection of quality, pure, natural, organic products.
Their handsome bottles have taken up residence in many of my shelves, from shampoo to lotions, but my favourite thing of all has to be that indispensable item I use on a daily basis, deodorant. It contains certified organic botanicals and is free of the parabens, propylene glycol, and aluminum chlorohydrate that plague commercial deodorants and put our health needlessly at risk.
It is also produced without animal testing, with no animal byproducts, and is certified vegan. It comes in several pleasing scents – my favourite is the Chamomile & Lemon Verbena.
And it’s effective. I smell great.
