The ancient Egyptians were very conscience of their looks and how they smelled. To them, cleanliness was next to Godliness, literally. To them, beauty was also a religious experience.

They are credited with the creation of the worlds first known perfume, essential oils. In fact, pots opened from thousands of years ago still had the scent of pure essential oils permeating out of them so it's clear that aromatic natural body care was an essential part of their culture.

Egyptians used dozens of plant based oils for their body care usage namely, olive oil, which was given to everyone in society as it was seen simply as a necessity to body care at that time. Almond oil was also used extensively as a way to keep their skin looking young and exasperate free radicals.

To tackle wrinkles, and slow down the aging process, Egyptians also used fenugreek oil. Many of their beauty staples were not only used by women, but men too. The hot and harsh Egyptian climate was unforgiving and damaging to the skin so its no wonder they went to high extents to protect their skin and cut down body odor caused by the blistering sun.

HOW: essential oils are a great tool to have in your natural body care regimen. They can be diluted with oils and applied to the body or even added to a bath for a truly spa-like experience.

Natural plant-based body care vs. traditional chemical-laden products:

Natural body care is a powerful tool if you choose to use it. Sometimes, the most simple plant-based ingredients are all we need to resolve many of the skin issues we incur.

Plant-based ingredients contain antioxidants, vitamins and other nutrients that make them a powerful non-toxic way to obtain and maintain healthy, beautiful skin and have been used by ancient cultures for thousands of years--because they work.

Why are so many body care products plagued by un-natural chemicals? The cosmetics industry as a whole has very little regulation. This means, they can use almost any chemical, toxic or not, just as long as they are not in large amounts and will purposely harm consumers after a few uses--this is why the long-term use of these products is a concern for many people. These chemicals--such as sulfates and parabens--preserve the product and create the lather, consistency, coloring and fragrance that consumers have come to expect--they're also cheaper than plant based alternatives.
