Hello all you wonderful people out there. Do any of you know anything about organic body care? Do any of you use organic body products?
I happen to know of some very famous people who did. Even the beautiful Cleopatra used organic products. She would take her bath in a tub of milk in order to relax and keep her skin soft. In the 1800’s Miss Josephine, Emperor Napoleon’s ex-wife, busied herself with organic gardening. Every variety of roses known at the time could be found in her exquisite garden best organic body lotion.
Between then and now a lot of chemicals have been developed that are used in foodstuffs and cosmetics. However, for me, personally, nothing can take away from the thrill of discovering natural uses for herbs and flowers and learning about natural cures.
Take roses. Rose petals can be used for their scent in perfume, deodorant, air freshener, soaps, potpourri mixes, and even for eating. Do you remember mom’s remedy for a cold – leaning over a bowl of boiling water with your head covered in a towel and inhaling? Just add some organic rose petals to the boiling water and inhale that fragrance. The same water can then be poured into spray bottles and voilà, you have a natural air freshener.
