Alternative Consumer Challenge by @naturalmedicine and @ecotrain
I have always been very careful about what I use on my skin whether it is cosmetics, cremes, soaps or anything. I have may be done make up 3 to 4 times in my life. I remember one on my wedding and the other few randomly for some occasions. Only Lipwear is something I wear it occasionally, but other then that nothing at all.
In this pursuit Soap was the only chemical thing I was using regularly on my body. So I decided to use something more natural and with that I came up with my own bath mixture which works very well for me and also gives me a healthy skin.
This is my bath mixture which I use regularly in place of a Soap and it is absolutely healthy with no chemicals penetrating my skin.
Himalayan Rock Salt
Pinch of Turmeric
Mix it up all together and make a paste by adding water and use it in place of a soap.
Rose Water can also be used in place of normal water, it leaves a very sweet fragrance on the skin, but on a daily basis it may go over the budget. Once a week in place of water I use Rose Water.
The benefits of using this paste is you will have soft and smooth glowing skin and if there is any pigmentation that will also be taken care of.
Once you start using it, I bet you will never want to use a soap again.
Though I do keep a Soap in my bathroom, cause this takes a little time and sometimes if I am in a hurry then I use the soap but that is very rarely. Also when I am travelling then I use a Soap. Thankfully now there are homemade chemical free Organic soaps which also work well, but they are expensive so using them on daily basis may not suit one's budget. Even the home made soaps have Lye in it, whereas this paste is absolutely chemical free.
The other therapy is for my Hair. I do not use any conditioners for my hair. In place of that I use Onion Juice remedy.
Onion Juice can be made by putting the onion in a blender and then squeezing out the juice from the paste. I use a hand blender as it does not make very fine paste and with that it becomes easier to squeeze.
Apply the juice on the hair and leave it for a minimum of 1 hour and then wash the hair thoroughly with luke warm water.
Benefits of this is it removes dandruff completely. Reduces hair fall and with regular use also stops hair fall completely. The texture of the hair will be smooth and the scalp will be cleaned up completely. Trust me it works much better then all the expensive hair products that you would use. If you do this once a week, you will never need to go to a Saloon for a Hair Spa neither will you need any expensive hair fall oils or dandruff treatments or any other products to maintain your hair. Onion juice also prevents the greying of hair and promotes new hair growth.
The only set back here is the smell, but if you wash it well it will go off.
On a lighter note I always tell my husband I am a low maintenance wife. No cosmetic or Saloon expenses he needs to make on me...hehehe
Hope you will try these alternatives and see the benefits by yourself.
