Essential Oils - Nature's First Medicines

  It's true, humans have been harnessing the power of Mother Nature nearly as long as we've been on Earth.  In the past we were much more connected to this planet - we understood that we were part of it instead of apart from it. At Neitra we're harnessing the power of Mother Nature to create "Food For Your Skin" and essential oils are a big part of that.  In fact, you'll never find a synthetic "fragrance" in any of our products...only 100% pure essential oils.

Water, water everywhere...but NOT in your skincare.

Water - Agua - Aqua - H2O.  Water is a vital life force because it hydrates our bodies while it also helps to flush out toxins and waste from our systems.  On average our amazing bodies consist of about 60% water - we need water and we couldn't last very long without it.  Ultimately, water keeps you healthy and drinking just 6-8 glasses a day aids in digestion, refreshes you and helps to regulate your energy level, temperature and brain function.  But one thing you may not know is that water is best for you when it's inside you, and it affects your body differently when it's outside you.
