HERBAL PRODUCTS are comprised of herbal care remedies, such as ointments like Tea Tree ointment. Tea Tree ointment has the ability to help and cure dermatitis, excema and fungal infections. Other herbal products like Camomile Oil, for instance, have the capability to improve the health of persons with skin problems; e.g. - scars, minor burns, sunburn, insect bites and even hemmorhoids. More common herbal products are used in massage oils that promote deep relaxation. Herbal products can even be perfume creams that not only soften the skin but leave an aromatic scent. One of the more fascinating herbal products, passes as a cooking oil and a natural skin helper. The herbal product in reference is Olive Oil. Olive oil, an an herbal product, is a superb dietary enhancer, and equally helps prevent sunburn; and acts as a natural mosquito repellent as well! Futhermore, herbal products are used in natural shampoos, conditioners, body washes, soaps, perfumes, colognes, etc. Most of our medicines used today are derived from native cultures. A matter of fact, approximately 25% of prescription drugs in the US contain at least one active plant material ingredient. Currently, over four billion people or eighty percent of the world population use herbal products for some forms of natural healthcare. Ayurvedic practitioners, homeopathic practitioners, naturopathic practitioners, traditional Oriental practitioners and Native American Indians commonly utilize herbal products in their practice. Today, pharmaceutical companies are extensively researching rain forest plant materials for their medicinal potential.
Herbal products are extremely versatile. One can use them for health and body, baking & cooking, natural healing, incense, candles, and so much more.
