Editor´s Note: Herbal Therapy has many different uses which can be used internally as well as externally on the body. The skin is the largest organ so whatever goes on it is absorbed in it. The same principle applies if you use cosmetic, chemical products, or cleaning supplies because once absorbed they can cause a negative impact to your immune system. Herbs in the form of Essential Oils can be mixed without any adverse effects to the body. Use eco-friendly products when cleaning your home.
