    Chemicals leave residues on skin.
    Thats why lipsticks tend to darken lips and nail polish leaves color on nails -other things do others, but maybe not visible.

    Couple of natural products are absolutely brilliant for face and hair.

    I love my essential oils. Lavender is such a wonderful oil. It has so many uses. It is one of the few oils that is safe to use neat on the skin. It will treat swelling and bruising as well. Just massage a little into the bruised area and you'll see a difference over night. I use it neat for deodorant and it helps to cleans the lymph system as well.
