This is a little snippet of an email newsletter I got from Katie, the Wellness mama.
"It makes me so angry to read the latest statistics about the hundreds of chemicals found in the blood of newborn babies and the thousands found in adults.
It is scary and infuriating that we are exposed to these harsh chemicals each day, yet we have control over the largest source of daily exposure to harmful chemicals: personal care products.
Our deodorants, lotions, hair products and even toothpastes are a source of thousands of chemicals each day... and many of these chemicals are not tested for safety in humans.
Years ago, I started making my own personal care products. I experimented with everything from shampoo to toothpaste to deodorant, and found that homemade options were not only very simple, but cheaper in the long run, because the same basic ingredients can be used to make dozens of natural care products."
Wellness mama is the website where I first found out about the many uses for coconut oil, 101 of them to be exact.
wellnessmama.com is the link.
Very helpful website, not just with coconut oil but other natural goods too.
