Parents ’should use natural products on their babies’
Using natural beauty products is advisable whatever your age, according to The Ecologist.
Ruth Styles, green living editor at the environmental affairs magazine, explained that it is best for babies and young children to avoid excessive exposure to chemicals.
"The main reason for using organic baby products is that young children are more sensitive to the effects of chemicals than adults - natural chemicals as well - so it’s better to have as few as possible come into contact with their skin," she said.
This is because skin is porous, so products that are used all over the body - such as baby creams and bubble baths - are absorbed easily.
"Baby skin is up to five times thinner than that of adults, which means that it doesn’t present much of a barrier for toxins … [so] for many parents, it’s better to be safe than sorry," Ms Styles commented.
"Organic products also tend to be gentler, which is another reason to use them on small children. As a general rule, they’re much gentler on skin and don’t come loaded with pesticide residues, parabens, synthetics [and so on] - none of which you really want near your child."
Natural ingredients might also be useful when it comes to soothing aches and pains, as some herbal supplements might be able to fight migraines.
According to MSN Health, magnesium deficiency has been linked to severe headaches in a number of studies, and as our bodies cannot produce the mineral ourselves we have to find alternative sources.
Flax seed oil, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, quinoa and spinach are all good sources for magnesium, which helps relax nerves and muscles and so can work to prevent and reduce the severity of migraines.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Anoni, Ashwagandha is a stress reliever and controls the production of stress-inducing hormones. High production of cortisol can compromise the production of progesterone. When Ashwagandha controls cortisol, it automatically stabilises progesterone production levels. Hope this helps :)
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello, As Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, there are numerous ways that it can help you depending on what time of day it is. Most people like to use Ashwagandha in the morning as it has some benefits when it comes to naturally reducing anxiety which could help throughout the day. However, others take it at night to help with sleep. If you are having difficulty sleeping, take it before bed. Otherwise, it does not matter at what time of day you take it as long as you are consistent from day to day.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Debbie, There is 340 mg of herb per capsule in our Ashwagandha. We usually recommend 2 capsules a day which are equivalent to 680mg. It is possible to take up to 1200mg daily, but only over short periods, so we prefer to stay well within the limits of safety, while still dosing enough to see the benefits. We always recommend to discuss taking the supplement with your GP before hand if you'd like to increase dosages. I hope this helps :)
