Many people live by the rule: don’t put anything on your skin you aren’t willing to ingest. Your skin is like a sponge and absorbs whatever is applied and placed on it. Retail skin and beauty products contain preservatives such as parabens and are proven to cause cancer. Using natural ingredients and making your own skincare and hair care products with Organic Essential Oils at home are good for you!
