Health Benefits of Bathing with Herbal Soap



Our Liquid Herbal Soap for Bathing

What are herbal soaps.  They  are simply bathing soaps formulated with herbal ingredients with minimal processing and no added synthetic substance and other artificial additives.

They  clean the body externally with no side effect(s) arising  from chemical substances.  It is no longer news that these herbal soaps benefit the body in numerous ways.

It is now clearer to me why our ancerstors always prepare some concoctions, boiled in the pot and insisted that the sick must bath with it.
They seem to know better.  As you wash the outside, the inside is also affected and you begin to experience calmness all over.    This I think is one of their longevity secrets.

Generally speaking, soap is one of the most commonly used  cosmetics in many homes today.  It is one used daily unlike  many  others used on occasions such as  talcums, perfumes, deodorants etc.  The  use  of soaps in our homes ranges from dish washing to cloths washing, scrubbing the floor, and for bathing.  Most herbal soaps for bathing are rich in antioxidants that benefits the skin in numerous ways such as protection from eczema, rashes,  bacteria infections, fast aging and  other skin diseases .  It is true that most regular soaps and antibacterial soaps in particular claim to do more.  The harm left behind by these chemical laden soaps are usually more than the good.

Most people are aware that there  is a  vast difference between herbal  soaps and regular soaps, yet not many  are careful in their choice of bathing soap.  In particular many are attracted by the perfumes and artificial fragrance that accompany these chemical laden soaps.  Some people consider the regular soaps cheaper, while  others do not even mind, though they can afford  the herbal bathing soaps.  I like that popular saying that (“If you say Education is expensive, then try ignorance” – Unknown)  If you think that keeping or maintaining  a  healthy body is expensive, then try ill health)

These individual do not consider the long term effect of these chemical laden soaps on the overall health as they continue  using them for daily bath over a long period.  It is saddening that while many of us are concerned with what goes into our mouth, majority are not even bothered with what goes into our body through the skin.


I have personally observed 3 facts about our skin which needs be shared  and noted here.  They are:

1.   Our skin is the largest external organ  we carry about daily
Whatever touches or reaches our skin goes straight to our blood stream

2. Our skin responds slowly to infections and bacteria attacks

The skin also heals slowly whenever it succumbs to infections or attack by skin diseases like eczema.  It takes some time and requires your patience to heal, since healing must first start from inside.

3.   The skin is the most exposed  part of the body to the outside and therefore requires proper daily care and attention.

Are you aware that most regular soaps especially the so-called antibacterial soaps are loaded with chemicals which can make us sick?  According to MyCentral Health Website, recent studies show that in many cosmetics  products is present, a chemical called Triclosan which exhibits cancer promoting effects both in vitro and vivo.

Studies have increasingly linked Triclosan and its chemical cousin Triclocarbon to a range of adverse health and environmental effects from skin irritation, endocrine disruption, bacteria and compounded antibiotic resistance to the contaminations of water.

Remember to always read your labels, here are some common Products containing Triclosan:

1.  Dental care  products and mouthwash such as colgate and some antibacterial brush

2.  Costmetics such as powder foundations, skin lighteing creams, gentle cleansing milk, antibacterial and moisturizing lotions.

3.  Some antibacterial soaps and bodywash use triclosan.
