Throughout the ages essential oils have been used in rituals and ceremonies in early Egyptian and even more lavishly in Roman times. Oils infused with essential oils were rubbed onto their bodies after bathing, they wore unguents to scent their hair, and additionally used scented powders in their clothes and bed linens. Essential oils were used medicinally as well for nearly every type of affliction.

How Can You Strengthen Your Immune System?

The biggest question for most people is how can they improve and strengthen their immune system. One of the best ways is by using essential oils. That’s because essential oils:

  • Are high in antioxidants
  • Are oxygenating
  • Are immune enhancing and support the body’s natural defenses
  • Aid in maintaining normal cellular regeneration
  • Boost stamina and energy
  • Essential oils containing sesquiterpenes have the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier. That means they can bring oxygen and nutrients in, and take toxins and wastes out.

Essential oils can be used to help ward off various flu strains and alleviate other common ailments. Certain essential oils have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. Furthermore, many people don’t realize that viruses and bacteria do not become resistant to essential oils that contain these properties. This is very important because it is a well-known fact that antibiotics are losing their effectiveness against many types of afflictions. When combined properly, essential oils are naturally absorbed into the body through the skin and also into the brain through the lining of the nose, affecting the body’s chemistry in many positive ways. Essential oils also offer a more agreeable and benign alternative to synthetic drugs, which can cause so many adverse reactions and side-effects.

Each day we hear more scary news stories about possible pandemics, but the extraordinary properties of essential oils will benefit children, adults, and the elderly.   Taking a wise step towards good health by using safe and soothing natural products will reward you with a healthier body and mind.

5 Reasons to Soap-Up this Oktoberfest

Cheers Bro

While early and middle September belongs to pumpkin, as the temperatures truly begin to turn, in the distance you can hear the sounds of accordions,  the echoing of clogs, and maybe a yodel or two. That’s right, it’s Oktoberfest time. A time to celebrate the community, to celebrate the harvest of old and who are we kidding but to drink beer. Although, why just drink your beer, when you can actually benefit your body by WASHING with some of your favorite craft brews? Need some convincing here are just 5 of the many benefits.

No Hangover:  You know that awkward moment when you have a family function but your friends have been screaming DAS BOOT all night. Yeah it can be tricky to manage the two. Well washing with any of Savage Soap’s brew lines allows that subtle energy you feel from a night out, all while still making you presentable to grandma.

You’ll be in better shape: A recent poll shows that the majority of Americans shower after working out. While this seems like a no brainer, at least to everyone but Stevens in accounting, working out will get you into better shape. While not all beer is light, WASHING with a bar of Flying Dog ® Kujo is calorie free. While the actual soap won’t shed the pounds, going to the gym and pumping the iron will.

It’s good for your skin: Ever wonder why baseball players shower each other in beer? It’s because they care about each other’s skin. Alright maybe not in its foamy form but beer believe it or not does have natural antiseptic properties. In addition to those natural properties other ingredients in Savage Soaps ®’ brew lines feature other agents that on their own you might not choose, however in a soap like Flying Dog ® Bloodline, you also get the benefits of the infused orange peel that is rejuvenating for many skin types.

Easier to sneak onto a cruise ship:  October is a time that a lot of people take cruises and while cruises are a great way to relax,  due to new regulations it’s tougher and tougher sneaking booze onto the high seas…Well, you won’t need too but still can take your favorite microbrew with you.

It’s subtle: Yes, it’s unprofessional to smell like beer first thing in the morning. However if you’re worried that bathing with beer soap will cause an awkward trip in the elevator, fear not.  The smell is more than subtle, which means you and your skin, get the benefits of using an artisanal soap, less the artificial  chemicals you find in corporate brands, all while using some of your favorite craft brews in a new and refreshing way.

Beer Soaps

The great news too, Savage Soaps ® brew line has plenty to choose from like: Flying Dog® Pale Ale (honey lemon patchouli), Flying Dog® Kujo (coffee allspice), Flying Dog® Gourd Std. (pumpkin spice), Flying Dog® Bloodline (orange spice), Brewer’s Alley Beersud (clove cinnamon spice) , Mononcacy Brewing Co. O Honey Stout Sud (oatmeal & honey), & Red Shedman’s Honey Bourbon (bourbon, caramel, vanilla, leather).

Leave in the comments below or on our social media sites which of your favorite craft beers we should make a soap out of next.

Now, Wash Responsibly!
