Use Organic Body Products and Oral Care to Decrease your Chemical Load
Organic Body Products
Avoid harmful synthetic chemicals in your everyday body products by switching to organic body products. This will keep your body in tip-top condition.
An effective organic lotion for the body should contain certified organic ingredients good enough to eat. Two examples of some beautiful ingredients are:
- Organic Shea Butter - this is an excellent skin protector and is high in Vitamin A and E. Highly effective in cell regeneration and anti-aging. It will improve the look and feel of your skin.
- Organic Aloe Vera Juice - potent healing and regenerative agent. Also can be useful for skin burns.
Organic body care products can provide relief to people suffering dry skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and other skin allergies. Since using an organic body wash and body cream for my youngest daughter they have helped to control her eczema by moisturising and soothing her skin.

Always use a deodorant rather than an antiperspirant. Antiperspirants are designed to block your sweat pores and don't allow your sweat glands to work naturally. Sweating is a natural body function.
Be sure to avoid ingredients such as "aluminum" and "parabens". Parabens are used as a preservative in many antiperspirants and can cause allergic skin reactions and be irritating to the skin and eyes. Traces of parabens have also been found in breast cancer cells.
An organic deodorant will help you to stay fresh all day and usually contains sodium bicarbonate with lightly scented fresh organic essential oils. They will not contain aluminum, parabens or any synthetic chemicals.
WARNING: I'll be honest and let you know that after switching to an organic deodorant there's a good chance your sweat output will increase.
It can leave you a little smelly! This is normal because antiperspirants keep all the toxins within your body due to blocking your sweat glands. The switch to an organic deodorant can take a couple of weeks to adjust but it is a far healthier alternative.
When purchasing toothpaste avoid any that contain:
- Artificial sweeteners
A quality organic toothpaste should consist largely of sodium bicarbonate, sea salt and organic essential oils such as lemon or peppermint. Stevia, a whole herbal food, is the natural choice to sweeten the taste of toothpaste. I find my girls actually like the lemon taste in particular.
A common use for baking soda (otherwise known as sodium bicarbonate) is in organic toothpaste. Its highly alkaline properties neutralise plaque acids and eliminate the bacteria that cause tooth decay. It is non-abrasive and safe. It can help symptoms of gum infection and inflammation. It also cleans and brightens your teeth.
TIP: If you ever run out of organic toothpaste simply brush your teeth with a teaspoon of baking soda blended with some fresh organic lemon juice.
Using organic body products and oral care in your daily routine is one sure way of decreasing your toxic load.
