100% Natural Sun Protection

100% Natural Paleo Sun Protection by Primal Life OrganicsIf you are like me, you’re hearing a lot of new information about Sunscreens causing more harm than good. While daily exposure to the sun is essential to your overall health, 100% Natural Sun Protection is difficult to find.

We’re excited to share one woman entrepreneur’s recipe for Paleo 100% natural sun protection. SunUp Before Sun Protector by Primal Life Organics is Organic, Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan and Handcrafted. It’s truly Cavegirl Skincare that works for Caveboys too!

– 100% natural ingredients
– Full strength (NO Water)
– Sun-Up Balms are designed to stay on the skin and repel water while protecting your skin and your internal body
– Sun-Up has been tested and has remained on the skin for hours after application and water activity
– A VERY little bit goes a VERY long way
– Broad-spectrum protection from damaging UV-A and UV-B rays.

sunup before sun protection by primal life organics starts with raspberry seed oilIt all starts with Red Raspberry Oil which has an SPF of 25-50 and contains vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants that protect you against free radical damage. Free radicals in the body can cause health issues such as cancer, immune suppression and signs of aging. Commercial sunscreens contains chemicals that promote free radical damage, and when you add that to sun exposure, the sun becomes your foe – not your friend!

SunUp Ulta Balm and Roll-On Stick contain Non-Nano Zinc Oxide, a non-toxic, and typically non-irritating, effective broad-spectrum sunblock. “Non-Nano” means that the zinc particles are too large to be absorbed through the skin. The zinc particles sit on the outermost layer of your skin, scattering and absorbing UVA and UVB rays, protecting the skin below.

The Ingredient List is all things familiar! Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Pure Filtered Beeswax*, Avocado Oil*, Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Virgin Coconut Oil*, Vitamin E Oil*, and Essential Oils of Carrot Seed*, Lavender*, Myrrh*, and Sandalwood*.

DIY Coconut Oil Tips

DIY Coconut Oil Tips for health and beauty at greenwomanstore.comCoconut Oil is an amazing product that has come into popular use. We’ve gathered some DIY Coconut Oil Tips for your Health and Beauty.

Did you know that Coconut Oil can:
– help to combat influenza viruses
– fight bacteria that cause cavities
– expel lice
– improve digestion
– reduce inflammation, and so much more.

Coconut’s health benefits are many. Here are several DIY Coconut Oil Tips to increase your family’s health:

 

Coconut oil’s lauric acid is proven to have antiviral effects. The body converts it to monolaurin, which destroys the coating around lipid-enclosed viruses such as the common flu. We have used Monolaurin Supplements to strengthen our immune system when a member of the family has the flu as a natural alternative to Tamiflu.
.- Washing your face with Coconut Oil is wonderful for the skin and can help draw out dirt, oil and other toxins. Apply in a warm wet washcloth, add a little coconut oil and massage onto to your face until the washcloth cools. Wipe away with a warm washcloth.
For a silky smooth shave, rub a small amount of coconut oil on your skin before shaving. Adding a little coconut oil to your face or legs after shaving gives you a natural moisturizer and added protection from dry skin.
DIY Coconut Oil Tips for health and beauty at greenwomanstore.comMake your own natural DIY Insect Repellent or Deodorant by mixing 4 ounces of coconut oil with pure natural antibacterial and antiviral Essential Oils, making your use of these aromatherapy products preventive medicine! Essential Oils and peanut free coconut oils are available at your healthy food stores. We suggest using Essential Oils of Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Lavender, Tee Tree, Thyme and a little Peppermint. Essential Oils are strong concentrates and must always be diluted. Use the following dilution rates:
 
6 drops total per ounce for kids
12 to 18 drops total per ounce for adults
Apply this mixture to your skin and reapply as needed. Always package your DIY Aromatherapy products in glass containers. Depending on the strength of the Essential Oils, they can break down plastic and bring those toxins into your otherwise safe product. The plastic toxins mimic estrogen molecularly, and your body will take these plastic toxins everywhere that your body uses estrogen. Purchase your aromatherapy in glass whenever possible.
DIY Coconut Oil Tips for health and beauty at greenwomanstore.com For cleaner, whiter teeth, you can try a new fad going around called “Oil Pulling.” Please research this to see if it is recommended for your family. Oil Pulling is a technique whereby you swish coconut oil around in your mouth for 15 to 20 minutes 4 to 5 times a week. Remember to spit out the coconut oil into a trash cando not swallow or flush oil down the drain – and rinse with water.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month – From Awareness to Prevention

Breast Cancer Awareness Month : From Awareness to Prevention

October is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”
This October, we are changing the discussion from Awareness to Prevention

New scientific evidence is emerging daily, making it clear that the chemicals in our environment play a role in altering our biological processes. It’s clear that our exposures to toxic chemicals and radiation are connected to our cancer risk.  But we rarely hear about this new scientific evidence.  

It is difficult to examine and address the effects of individual chemicals and their risks for a disease as complex as cancer. The time between exposures and development of the disease may be decades. We may not know which chemicals we’ve been exposed to, and we are not exposed to chemicals in isolation.

Sign Up for our Preventing Cancer Telesummit: Exposing the Environmental Causes.In this Telesummit and Podcast Series, we will bring this new evidence to your attention. We will examine Hormones and Hormone Disruptors, EMF Cell Phone and Computer Radiation, Fluoride in our water and Fracking in our communities, GMOs and Toxins in Cosmetics and Personal Care Products, Flame Retardants in our furniture and bedrooms, BPA and it’s more toxic replacements, and causes of the 90% unexplained sporadic non-hereditary breast cancers.

As informed consumers, you can begin to control your exposure to chemicals and radiation through personal and political action. Get to know the chemicals that have been linked to cancer and take action to reduce your risk. 

During this Telesummit, you will receive one interview emailed to you each Tuesday and Thursday. You will hear from Scientists, Political Activists, Nutritionists, and Women Survivors of Cancer who have made lifestyle changes that combat disease. If you miss any Podcasts, you will have a chance at the end to catch up. 

Please share this Blog with your family and friends,
you never know whom you may be helping.

Lucy Light Clean Cosmetics Mineral Foundation by Lucy Minerals“Clean Cosmetics” is the new buzz word these days for natural toxin free Make-Up.  Join the majority of women worldwide who are waking up to this new possibility.  Women owned businesses are creating Make-Up that we can feel safe wearing, and feel safe that we aren’t unnecessarily polluting our environment  while we “potentize our body with symbols,” as poet  Judy Grahn defines the word cosmetics.

Every new year, during the months of January through March, I replace last year’s Make-Up with fresh new items, sometimes changing the colors but not always.  Click on these photos if you see something you like! Whether it is a natural Mascara or Eye Shadow, or safe nano-particle-free Mineral Foundations, if you are like me and replace your Make-Up this time of the year, we have some great 100% natural choices.

EarthLab Cosmetics Raw Mascara Clean CosmeticsDiane Peterson and Jennifer MacDougall, the mother and daughter team at EarthLab Cosmetics, uses 100% natural botanically based food grade ingredients that are Gluten-Free, Paraban Free, and free of all toxic chemicals.  I personally love their “Raw Mascara.”  It actually comes in one color only, Black, because if they wanted brown they would have to cook it!

These two women entrepreneurs are committed to “Raw Mascara” and Clean Cosmetics!  EarthLab Cosmetics is making and campaigning for safer cosmetic products.

Menopause, Clean Cosmetics and Aromatherapy Products

by Guest Blogger, Genny LaMorgan of Aroma For Health

Clean Cosmetics are a specialty at Green Woman Store. We are passionate about simple and sustainable lifestyles.Natural skin care is part of a green lifestyle. Connecting conscious consumers with women owned businesses that deliver healthy, reliable and sustainable goods is our commitment. Our guest blogger today is Genny LaMorgan who makes some of our Natural Aromatherapy Products.

The “Art of Aromatherapy” is blending Essential Oils to reduce, treat and prevent stress, illness and symptoms. Essential Oils are the very concentrated natural compounds distilled from plants. Enhancing your well-being is sometimes the goal, but oftentimes, it is the very beneficial “side effect” of Aromatherapy products.

Aromatherapy Massage Oils blended with therapeutic Essential Oils allow these antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal concentrated compounds to be absorbed through your skn and into your bloodstream in 3 to 30 minutes. During the time you are using the Massage Oils, you are absorbing the healing vapors through your nose and your olfactory system which covers the entire top of your brain! Aromatherapy changes how we think.

Menopause requires mood enhancement as much as symptom relief. Aromatherapy products such as Sprays, Creams and Massage Oils introduce probiotic (Essential Oils do not destroy the good bacteria in your system) medicinals that treat our Menopause symptoms without the side effects of carcinogenic ingredients, toxic chemicals, and artificial hormones.

Vitex herbe, sometimes called Chaste Berry, is a hormone balancer that can be  taken as teas or capsules, and can also be absorbed through your skin when used in body care compounds. Aromatherapy’s Vitex Essential Oil cream is useful for strengthening vaginal tissue and reducing dryness which is so common as we women age. Vitex cream has also been found to help lighten the dark spots that come with hormone imbalance. 

Aroma For Health Estrogenic Face CreamWhen a hot flash hits, what is the best immediate relief? A soothing Aromatherapy Face and Body Spray! Keeping it in the refrigerator can increase the cooling effect. There are a few natural sources of Estrogen used in Aromatherapy. My favorites are Clary Sage and Fennel. These two Essential Oils add a wonderful aroma to our “over 40” Estrogenic Face Cream. Mixed with Rose Geranium to help with water retention, and lavender to calm and balance, this is an aromatic recipe for relief.

Do you take your own Massage Oil when you go to have a massage? Well, it’s always a good idea. Oftentimes massage therapists are not aware of the therapeutic benefits of Aromatherapy, and they may be missing this opportunity for optimum health. Aromatherapy Essential Oils are absorbed through your skin wthin 30 minutes directly into your bloodstream. Menopause Massage Oils introduce natural hormone balancing therapy at a safe and effective dose. When menopausal symptoms are at their worst, or when they are just beginning, having a 30-minute Aromatherapy Menopause Massage twice a week for four weeks has proven in studies to give effective relief.

A daily dose of Menopausal Creams, Sprays and Body Oils is something you can do for yourself to help bring symptom relief, and to add a great floral scent to your graceful aging process. It is always nice to smell the roses, and in this case the roses are right at your fingertips.

I am currently formulating a new Trio: Menopausal Face Spray, Vitex Cream, and Menopause Massage, Bath and Body Oil. I look forward to introducing our new Menopause Aromatherapy Products in the Fall.
