This entry was posted in all natural, bath and body, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

coconut oil 76 tipsCoconut Oil 76 Tips

Providing tremendous and bubbly lather in soap is only one of coconut oil 76’s qualities.  It can also help to make a harder bar of soap as well as making it whiter.  But, coconut oil 76 can also be used in lotions, bath melts, massage oils, body butters, lip balms, basically anything you can think of.  When it comes to bath and body products, coconut oil 76 is known for being a great moisturizer all around and is especially good for your skin!

The reason that coconut oil is so good for our bodies is that it has quite the outstanding natural make up.  Coconut oil is high in lauric acid.  Lauric acid is medium chain fatty acid.  Lauric acid is also a part of the class of organic compounds which we know as lipids.  Lipids are fundamental in the creating of our cellular membranes.  But, it doesn’t stop there; coconut oil also has vitamin e and vitamin k, and is also rich in iron.

So, as you can see coconut oil is awesome for your body in products.  But, did you know that this amazing oil has other uses to it too.  It turns out that Mother Nature gave us a natural elixir for many of life’s little hiccups.   And, the best part about all of this is how cost effective coconut oil 76 is.

Through our research, we have found what seems to be an endless list of coconut oil uses.  We however just wanted to focus on the ones that are most relevant to our industry.

Coconut Oil 76 is very nourishing for your hair, nails, and skin.
First and foremost, coconut oil 76 has both antimicrobial and antifungal benefits.  This makes it a perfect ingredient candidate for many bath and body products.  But, coconut oil 76 can be used alone for many reasons.

For Nails
-Just by rubbing the oil on your nails and nail beds, you can promote nail growth as well as nourish your cuticles.  This tip will help especially if you have cracked and dry cuticles.

For Skin
-Using coconut oil 76 to moisturize is always a smart move.  The perfect solution for dry patches like elbows, knees, and ankles, or flakey skin in general, coconut oil 76 soaks right into the skin leaving it soft and supple.
-And, a great tip for a really close shave is to use coconut oil 76.  Plus, with its moisturizing benefits and smooth glide, you will be irritation free.

For Hair
-Coconut oil 76 is just amazing for hair.  Just by rubbing it into your scalp you can strengthen dry and weak hair, and even help to fight dandruff.  The perfect solution for keeping your hair soft, healthy, shiny, and hydrated, coconut oil 76 is the complete package.  (Although it should be noted you may need to additionally wash your hair a few times to get all of the oil out).
-In fact, applying coconut oil 76 to your eyelashes before going to sleep will even help strengthen them.

For Scars, Dark Circles, and Stretch Marks
-Once a cut has healed, you can use coconut oil 76 to help lighten the appearance of scaring.  The same can be said for those pesky stretch marks too.
-And for the dark circles under your eyes, dabbing some coconut oil around your eyes will not only lighten the circles, but also reduce the bag look.
-Finally, coconut oil 76 is also a wrinkle reducer because it contains anti aging properties as well as makes your skin supple and healthy looking.

For Skin Issues
-Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Coconut Oil can be used to help soothe the discomfort and itch from eczema.  It can even be placed directly on bug bites to lessen the irritation.
-You can use coconut oil to relieve the pain and uneasiness from sunburn.  Not only will coconut oil 76 help prevent peeling, it will reduce the redness and irritation.
-For minor cuts and scrapes, you can use coconut oil 76 as a protective layer to keep the bacteria and ickies from the outside world from getting into your cut.

As a Deodorizer
-Probably the most interesting fact is that since coconut oil contains lauric acid; it will help to kill the bacteria that causes foul smelling body odor from both arm pits and feet.

Some Makeup Tips
-Coconut oil 76 is a great ingredient to keep in your makeup arsenal.  Perfect for fixing running eye makeup like mascara or eyeliner, all you need is the oil and a cotton ball.  It also works as a full makeup remover just by slathering coconut oil on your face then using a wash cloth and warm water to gently remove it.
-Coconut oil for lip care works great for dry lips.  But, it can even be used as a lip gloss or you can let the oil soak in to give your lips a matte look.

So, as you can see Coconut oil 76 seems to be an ingredient that just cannot be beat.  And, since many of you have it in your house for the creation of bath and body products, you now have some more additional uses for it too.

Natural Home Cleaning Products

This entry was posted in all natural, aromatherapy, creative, Fragrance Oils, herbs, Natures Garden, Natures Garden Essential Oils, wholesale supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Wholesale Essential OilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Patti Page, owner of Aromatherapy Naturals-Natural Aromatherapy Home Cleaning Products.

Owning a cleaning service business for over 14 years and cleaning hundreds of homes, I know a lot about cleaning products. I know what cleans well and what doesn’t. Believe me I have tried dozens of cleaning products!

I have taken this experience and knowledge and developed a line of natural aromatherapy cleaning products that not only smell good, but are superior in performance as well.

Tested and Proven:  Aromatherapy Naturals Products were not created in a lab. They were created in a small rural town in Indiana by a Cleaning Service Owner with 14 years experience in the cleaning industry by fusing together the art of aromatherapy and the science of cleaning.

Making the Switch:  In 2006 after using harsh cleaning chemicals on a daily basis for years I decided to start using only natural cleaning products to clean our clients homes. I wanted a natural product that not only cleaned well, but would leave our clients homes with a pleasant scent. After extensive research I found a company that made Natural Cleaning Products using essential oils. I started purchasing the products from this company and using them in my cleaning service. That was when Aromatherapy House Cleaning was born!

Everything was going well and we continued to use the products from this company. Then the company I was purchasing the products from sold out to another company. The other company changed the formulas and scents and only offered a few products. I was not interested in purchasing the products from this company after they had changed the formulas and scents. By this time I had completely based my cleaning service on these products. I wasn’t sure what to do at this point since no one else sold this type of product. I tried other products but did not care for them.

After much consideration and prayer I took the leap of faith and decided to go forward and make a product line myself to use in my cleaning business. After countless hours of research and many nights spent working on the formulas and praying for God’s assistance to help with the formulas, Aromatherapy Naturals was conceived. I couldn’t have done it without the help of the Lord.

After using the natural aromatherapy products in my cleaning business, I started getting requests from cleaning companies who had visited my website and saw that I was using these products asking for information about purchasing the products we were using. In 2008 I started Aromatherapy Naturals and started selling the products to home owners and cleaning services all over the United States and Canada. Since then I have added several products to offer everything needed to clean homes naturally.

Every Order is Carefully Created by Hand:  Aromatherapy Naturals commitment to purity and quality goes as far as to guarantee that your products are not created until the time you place your order.

I use the Natural Vanilla Infusion from Nature’s Garden in 2 of my essential oil blends and I just love it. I only use pure essential oils in my blends and since there is no vanilla essential oil I wasn’t able to use vanilla in the blends until I found the Vanilla Infusion at Nature’s Garden. I now use the Vanilla Infusion to make a Lavender Vanilla Blend and also a Warm Orange Spice Blend. I also use Nature’s Garden Coconut Oil and Olive Oil.  I love the fact that the shipping is so fast at Nature’s Garden. I can place an order and it ships the same day or the next day at the latest.
