Eco-friendly Skincare and Bath Products
Because of pollution, stress, extreme climate, and all the process food that we eat, many of us suffer from different skin issues. Dull skin, blemishes, and irritations caused by typical commercial skin care products are also pretty common. If you want healthy looking skin, you need to ditch products that contain harmful substances like parabens, artificial fragrances, surfactants, and masking agents. At the Samui Health Shop, you can find good organic skincare brands that will breathe life into your skin. Made from natural plant extracts, these are a tad better than the conventional products that are taking over the market shelves. They have facial mists, serums, facial cleansers, moisturizers, and handmade soap bars that are free from irritants and ingredients that can cause allergic reactions. Their lemongrass and clove bar soaps are 98% organic. They have a nice lather and refreshing smell too.
One particular product we love from them is the Herbpiness inhaler. This is meant to be inhaled and applied topically for instant relief. This has essential oils to soothe both mind and body. Their beeswax lip balms are really great too and are guaranteed to heal chapped lips and heal dryness. The peppermint balm makes the lips look fuller too. They also have face masks. Try the green clay bath by argiletz laboratories. This is a spa product you can do at home. If you have kids, buy the mozzie gel by Khun. This is steroid free and addresses common baby skin issues like rashes, bites, and irritations.
Natural Household Products
Switching from conventional household products takes commitment but could be the best decision you could make for your family. If you check your cleaning supplies and read the labels, you will discover that they are actually full of toxins that are harmful not only to you but also to the environment. At Samui Health Shop, you can make the switch with ease because they have organic laundry detergent and fabric softeners, alcohol free odor neutralizers, and air freshener that are made with essential oils. With this, your living space can be squeaky clean and fresh smelling without the need for harmful substances.
Superfoods and Supplements
If you are a health buff, you might have already heard about how superfoods can benefit the body. Superfoods are nutritious and contain vitamins and minerals that increase the body’s energy, boost the immune system, and maintain optimum body functions. They have nutritional yeast that you can substitute for cheese as well as chia seeds that you can add to yogurt and smoothies. They also have organic buckwheat, spirulina, chlorella, cacao, and quinoa. Health staples like wheatgrass powder, flax seeds, and zeolite can be found here as well. They also sell papaya leaf supplements, which are believed to cure dengue, a disease caused by mosquitoes.
If you will be in Koh Samui for a while, stock up your pantry and kitchen cabinet with stuff that are nutritious and free from harmful additives. Samui Health Shop by Lamphu has organic almond and oat drinks, wild honey, and gourmet coffee beans. They also have extra virgin coconut oil that you can use not only for your skin but also for food preparations and as a supplement. You can even add it your coffee along with organic butter to make it “bulletproof”. If you want to make salad dressings or want to add a bit of acidity to your dishes, then make sure to have a bottle of their coconut cider vinegar. This is made from defatted coconut milk and has a nice flavor.
To add taste and flavor to your meals, you can also sample some of their organic dips and sauces. The brand Mekhala has interesting ready made sauces such as pad Thai that you can use with abandon since they are healthier than the ones you can find at the supermarket. They also have different varieties of tea, brown rice pasta, and dried goji berries if you need those too.
The shop makes amazing bread too. A must buy is their sourdough. This is non GMO, has no MSG, and is gluten free. Made from wheat and rye flour from Australia, this is rich in good bacteria and has natural preservatives. Slice then toast it and top with butter or your favorite organic jams. It is great with soups too.
