There are a range of benefits which come with using natural products for skin, hair, cooking etc. Natural products can benefit ourselves but also the environment, which is becoming an increasingly important issue, by reducing the amount of chemicals that end up in the earth. The number of natural products available to use is extensive, so here we will talk about just a few of the most raved about products of the moment.
CBD Oil has risen in popularity recently due to the range of physical and mental positive health effects it can bring. CBD itself is just one of the hundred natural substances to be found in the cannabis plant. It can be extracted and mixed with an oil, such as hemp or coconut, to create CBD oil. There is no need to worry about legality, as CBD oil is perfectly legal for medicinal purposes – proven by the fact it is stocked in popular high-street store Holland & Barrett. There are a number of ways to use CBD oil as it comes in a number of forms. Natural Hemp Co provide a range of CBD oil products, such as drops, pastes, e-liquids, balms or crystals – so it is a highly versatile natural product. You can, therefore, use the product in whichever way you like, whether this be in an e-cigarette or in your cooking.
The main physical health benefit of using CBD oil as one of your natural products seems to be pain relief. The oil has been found to reduce inflammation and muscle spasms caused by conditions such as multiple sclerosis. Some research has also found that it helps to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy for cancer patients. On the mental health side of things, research has shown that CBD oil can help with anxiety and depression. This natural product has even been found to reduce acne in some users – so could be used as part of your skincare routine too!
Coconut oil is another of the natural products which has been found to have a huge range of uses and potential benefits. From cooking to moisturising, virgin coconut oil is another great one to incorporate into your daily routine. Coconut oil consists of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, which give it a number of beneficial properties – it is antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal AND antibacterial.
Although the production of coconut oil is largely sustainable and efforts are made to ensure a healthy future for the industry. However, it is important to buy your coconut oil and other natural products from trusted and researched companies, where you can be sure that they are sourcing their oils responsibly.
Some of the uses for this oil are beauty-related, for example, it can be used as a hair oil or body moisturiser, with the added benefit that it blocks out some UV rays to reduce sun damage. For skin, coconut oil can be used as an effective make-up remover and to reduce inflammation of dermatitis and eczema.
You can also use virgin coconut oil in the kitchen – the oil is commonly used for adding a healthy touch to frying food, whether it be vegetables or meat. You could also add it to smoothies, soups or sauces to add a tropical/coconut flavour.
It probably goes without saying, but avocado oil is the natural oil which is pressed from the pulp of avocados. The main natural substance in avocado oil is oleic acid, a healthy fatty-acid. The main health benefit that research has found is a reduction in cholesterol and improvement in overall heart health – although benefits like these may not be observable, you can’t go wrong with a happy heart.
The fatty-acids in avocado oil have also been found to help with the absorption of carotenoid antioxidants found in a lot of plant-based foods. You may, therefore, find it beneficial to mix with your salads or healthy snacks to allow your body to make the most of your healthy diet.
Other health benefits that have been suggested are related to eye health, gum health, joint health and more… So it is clearly another great oil worth incorporating into your natural products routine.
