Jackie's Health Tip of the Week 3/26/17

Synthetic fragrances are really bad news! If the fragrances in your personal care products come from an organic, natural source such as essential oils, it will be indicated on the packaging. If the only reference to fragrances on the label is the word “fragrance,” then you need to put that nasty bottle back on the shelf!

The term “fragrance” in the US allows manufacturers to omit any reference to the list of ingredients that they used to create the fragrance. So if “fragrance” is listed on a label, there’s no telling what the product contains! There are over 3,100 chemicals used by the fragrance industry to formulate these suspiciously delicious aromas, and most of them are not very human-friendly.

You can easily avoid fragrances by making your own natural products!  I am having a Natural Facial Care Making Workshop in April.  CLICK HERE for more details and to RSVP!
