Aromapurrathy™ – the New Aromatherapy by the Cat Lady – Get Yo’ Calm on Now!

Aromatherapy might be popular in wellness centers, salons and spas today but the practice has actually been around for more than 6,000 years. This Egyptian age-old practice is commonly used for relaxation and stress relief. The Benefits of Aroma-Purrathy  (Aromatherapy) Certain essential oils relieve stress and induce relaxation. Aromatherapy works in many ways but one major benefit may be by reducing cortisol – the body’s stress hormone. If you find it difficult to sleep at night, aromatherapy might be the answer that you have been looking for. The topical application of essential oils has positive effects to the brain’s limbic system which controls your moods and emotions. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed after a rejuvenating sleep. Apart from reducing stress, aromatherapy is also effective at improving your complexion. Essential oils assist in keeping the skin supple. Many plant oils have anti-inflammatory properties which are useful for dry and flaky skin. Skin conditions like acne, and accelerated aging can also be treated. If you’re a woman, you know how annoying cycling hormones can be. PMS, perimenopause and menopause may be troubling for you, but fortunately, aromatherapy works great for reducing symptoms like mood swings, bloating, and tenderness. How Do I Practice Aromatherapy? You don’t need to burn a hole in your pocket just to delve into aromatherapy! While high-profile spas seem enticing, therapeutic sessions at your own home will work nicely too. The Aromapurrathy™ mist is one of the products which can jump start your experience with aromatherapy. Think of the mist as instant relaxation in a bottle. It is mainly made from organic lavender which soothes not just the mind and soul but also the skin. Aromapurrathy™ mist saves you...

The Truth about Beauty Products With Artificial Fragrance: Why It’s Best to Opt for Non-Toxic Scents

The Truth about Beauty Products With Artificial Fragrance: Why It’s Best to Opt for Non-Toxic Scents

It is undeniable that scents stimulate human emotions. For this reason, manufacturers of purrsonal care products are doing their best to capture scents that trigger positive emotion. This way, companies can sell more of their products. However, these artificial fragrances do not always equate to positive health or beauty effects. As opposed to non-toxic fragranced products, some items with artificial scents can contribute to allergies, headaches, alter moods, harm our pets and even disrupt hormones.  It’s pretty scary stuff.  Care to learn more?  Read on… Laundry detergents, floor cleaners, room sprays, deodorants, candles, body washes – the list of products with artificial fragrances can certainly go on. They might smell “calming” or “rejuvenating” but they similarly pose threats to your body. Many synthetic fragrances yield skin allergies. These fragrances can also worsen the condition of an individual who has asthma. Be mindful as well of products which claim to remain fragrant for 24 hours and more. They might contain phthalates whose heavy dosages can jeopardize one’s reproductive and endocrine system. Several researchers have also focused on fragrant toiletries whose ingredients have been linked to cancer. What is also alarming is that these chemicals do not easily dissipate. They can inhibit the body for a long time, not to mention our environment contributing to a whole host of additional challenges. While most of the products with faux fragrance are unregulated, it does not mean that you have to be complacent as well. As a consumer, it is your right to invest on safe phthalate-free products. Stay away from items that do not indicate the ingredients on the labels. Make sure your labels are...
5 Reasons Why It’s Time to Switch to Non-Toxic Nail Polish

5 Reasons Why It’s Time to Switch to Non-Toxic Nail Polish

When it comes to nails, it’s difficult to resist the joy of painting them in various colors. It might be pricey for you to give your wardrobe a daily makeover but with your nails, all you need is a tiny bottle to change your look. Voila! Regardless of how fun and easy it is to make your hands stand out, it’s important to make responsible decisions when it comes to nail polish. Here are some reasons why you should start tossing those man-made chemical-filled pigments and opt for a natural, non-toxic nail polish: 1. You can unknowingly expose yourself, family AND pets to cancer-causing chemicals. Not all nail polishes list down the substances that go into each bottle. Some polishes are filled with chemicals that are not completely friendly to one’s health. Some of the harmful substances found in a handful of commercial polishes include the cancer-causing Dibutyl Phtalate (DPB) and Toulene which can pose serious consequences to your nervous system. 2. You have to endure the overpowering smell of noxic fumes. Applying nail polish should not be an exhausting task. However, if the scent is too strong, surely it can result in headaches. Non-toxic nail polishes are made from non-toxic ingredients which won’t leave you nauseated. 3. You might be using something that’s tested on animals. It is a universal truth that many beauty products labels test their products on animals. There is nothing beautiful about using something that has been tested on a creature through cruel and painful schemes. There are many ways to feel beautiful without making a creature suffer. This principle doesn’t only apply to non-toxic nail polishes. As much...
