  2. Bethany Williamson and Square Pegs, Round World Aromatherapy does not, PREVENT TREAT CURE

  3. Lifestyle PREVENTS disease (diet, exercise, rest, stress management, toxic exposure) • Doctors TREAT symptoms and fix broken parts • The body CURES disease and heals itself

  4. WHAT IS AN ESSENTIAL OIL? • Natural aromatic compounds found in plants • Steam distilled or cold pressed extraction • Powerful, safe benefits without side effects • (Oil sacs on peppermint leaf)

  8. Fun in the Summertime! • Sun Protection • After Sun Treatment • Bug Spray & Bites • Owie/Boo Boo Help

  9. Sunscreen • Many companies make “organic” sunscreens that contain synthetic chemicals. • Sunscreens protect from sunburn but do little to nothing to prevent skin cancer or accelerated skin aging. • The simple truth is beyond the knowledge that sunscreens prevent sunburns, little else is known about the safety and effectiveness of sunscreen lotions and sprays. • Currently there are no final U.S. Sunscreen safety regulations.

  10. Chemicals to Avoid! There are a host of chemicals in our skin care and sunscreen is no exception. Here are two places to go where you can read about the chemicals to avoid. (There are too many for me to cover!) • •

  11. Titanium Dioxide Titanium dioxide has recently been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen ''possibly carcinogen to humans''. It is present in almost every sun block. The Jury is still out on this one…but better safe than sorry!

  12. Zinc Oxide • An element drawn from the earth • Helps block UV Rays • Naturally occurring chemical • Look for the NON Nano Zinc Oxide or Micronized Zinc Oxide • The Nano can pass through the skin easily and can generate free radicals which damage the skin.

  13. Precautions • We need vitamin D • Stay out of the noon sun • Cover up, wear sun hats

  14. Sunscreen Lotions, Sprays & Creams with Non Nano Zinc Oxide Only –Safe Mama Her Top 2 Picks • Badger All Natural Sunscreens • Raw Elements Eco Formula Check out her website here for more!
