Easter is a time to kick your feet up, enjoy and spend some much needed special moments with family and close friends. It’s the first mini vacation we get after Christmas and the New Year and is also a time to rejuvenate with a small (but much needed) pit stop!
Why does this matter?
Because it’s also a time to reflect on our actions and their consequences.
Organic Based Products are increasingly gaining popularity and in a market that can sometimes be quite price driven, the fact that off the shelf products are being replaced by their more expensive counterparts is something to deeply consider. Though some of us may find that Organic Products aren’t exactly our “thing”, the truth is that a significant proportion of us are quickly adopting the Organic way of life and reaping all the health benefits Mother Nature so generously has to offer.
With popular supposedly “trusted” brands coming under our radar over the past few months, it is no surprise that more of us are shifting our time, energy and well-earned money towards organic and natural foods, personal care and cleaning items.
Money’s of no use without our Health
Here’s the deal:
We’re all very aware of how we spend our hard earned money but many of us also understand that it’s worthless if we don’t have our health.
Though the news of Johnson’s and Johnson’s Baby Powder’s Cancer scare hit our headlines some time ago now, the after effects have had a ripple effect that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon! It has also only added to the ominous list of issues products made up of chemical substances have caused over the years.
The continued spotlight on the permanent damage caused by long term feminine hygiene product usage has also snowballed over the years, resulting in many women now turning to organic products.
What does this all have to do with Easter? Keep reading to find out now.
The Easter Bunny’s going Green …
Easter’s about Good Food, Picnics and Treasure Hunts that involve, well let’s be honest with ourselves – lots and lots of chocolates.
But this article isn’t about making any of us feel guilty, chocolate is fun and honestly, needed (at times more than other times!) and when done in moderation – completely okay.
Let’s not be biased though – Easter is also about cupcakes, pastries and, well you get the picture.
With a substantial increase in food allergies developing, more of us are looking at organic alternatives for what we put in our tum tums. As Easter nears, many of us are preparing to cook a multitude of scrumptious dishes for our bustling families. From personal experience, I can tell you that what this means for most families is a variety of foods for people with an even more exclusive range of unique allergies. No one wants to be remembered for the gastronomic dinner that made Aunt Jane look like Blowfish was on the menu. Which is why it’s a safer option to cook with Organic foods and even better yet, possibly ingredients you’ve actually grown and handpicked from the garden.
There are also a whole lot of options for Organic chocolates and sweets available nowadays which means that parents and kids are happy together. A truly pretty family scenario there!
Don’t know where to start?
How about trying your typing fingers at a quick Google Search to get your creative juices flowing this very moment!
Heading out on an Easter Vacation? Pack the Natural Shampoo.
Don’t get caught out with having to fall back on the Hotel/Motel’s Personal Care option because honestly, if that one shoe fits all policy hasn’t worked till now, it’s not going to anytime soon.
Natural Products don’t just make you feel better, they make you look better. Remember that old proverb – you are what you eat?
It works for everything you put into your body, even the bits that can be absorbed through your skin. Sounds simple enough, right? So remember, this goes for the whole taking care of yourself thing – shampoos, conditioners, lotions, creams … everything.
Nervous about going completely “out there” with your Organic Personal Care regime?
Remember, it all starts with one small first step. Swap one organic product for a non-one you’ve been loyal to for a while, like your normal shampoo for example. If the results aren’t everything you expected them to be – don’t give up just yet. There are so many Organic Product solutions out there now, try another one and see how it goes. If it’s a success, hurray! Attempt to adopt more organic alternatives – what do you have to lose?
Try it out; you might just end up falling in love like so many before you.
