Have you ever felt your mood improve after spending the day outside? How about after eating some fresh fruits and vegetables? What about after catching up with a loved one?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, it's because we crave all things natural. We crave natural chemistry in our food, relationships and surroundings. It's simply in our blood.
When tracing the human species back to when their first known appearance millions of years ago, you'll learn that the food they ate came from the earth. Their source of heat and cooking element -- fire-- came from the planet's natural resources. Our earliest ancestors were constantly surrounded by nature because they depended on it for survival, and no matter how much we evolve from those early humans, we'll still always need and crave the natural elements surrounding us.
That's why it's so important to use natural products on and in your body. Not only do they improve your mood and health, but those things also help bring you back to your roots as a human being.
Today, our world is saturated with so many different varieties of foods and consumer products to choose from. While having so many options can sometimes be a great thing, you want to make sure you're choosing the right products to keep you healthy and happy. Things packed with added chemicals and other harsh or artificial ingredients may limit your ability to feel that joy and happiness you get after a healthy meal or day in the park with a loved one.
So if consuming natural products is the way to go, why don't more people do it?
There are a few myths about whether all-natural products are more expensive than products with harsh additives or if all-natural products actually offer the benefits they claim. We're here to bust those myths, though, and tell you that if products truly are all-natural products, meaning that every ingredient is pure and not tampered with, you will feel the benefits and that healthy doesn't have to come at a high price tag.
While some products with chemical ingredients are cheaper than an all-natural alternative, not all of them are. In fact, sometimes all-natural products are even cheaper than those with additives.
For example, our hair oil contains only a handful of ingredients-- all of them natural with no additives. A bottle of our hair oil will cost you $20 for 1.7 fl oz. of natural hair health!
Now take a look at a popular hair oil produced by OUAI. A 1.5 fl oz. bottle of hair oil contains a multitude of ingredients-- both synthetic and natural-- and will cost you about $28. So you're paying more for less oil and chemicals.
There are other affordable all-natural, healthy products that exist as well...you just have to do a little research to find them!
As for all-natural ingredients being healthier, this goes back to that good feeling you get when you eat fruits and vegetable and immerse yourself in all things natural. You can get a similar feeling when you're using the products that came from that environment that uplifts you.
Get out into nature, eat a fresh and colorful meal and use products that make you feel good about yourself without hurting your wallet!
