When Buying Organic

If you are anything like me growing up you used the classic products for cleaning, grooming and eating. In the 80's and 90's there was not a big concern over what chemicals were in your shampoo or whether your chickens were free range or not.

After experiencing some major health issues I started to investigate what I consumer with a much for cautious eye. I started to buy organic and expected to be able to use all of the products with the same abandon I had with the not so natural products.

Something to think about when buying a natural product though is that if you wouldn't be able to walk through a field of a particular flower with our scrunching up your eyes and shedding a tear then you are not going to be able to use a shampoo or laundry soap fragrances with the essential oils from that flower.

Synthetic fragrances cause a lot of problems and going with natural products is a much better sulution. Some of the natural products are made with exotic plants though that you may or may not be allergic to. I have found a line of fragrances free shampoos and cleaning products at places like Whole Foods that have been the perfect solution to this problem.

Buying organic just means you have to be much more aware of your bodies allergies because it is made with real ingredients that you may never have used before and your body may react differently to these natural plants and oils. Good luck on your quest to live a healthier existence and thanks for reading.
