Celebrating Native American Beauty Tips at Thanksgiving

2 Comments

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, let’s take a moment to acknowledge the beauty contributions of the First Nations people.  As I explored the web to learn about what Native American women used to secure their beauty throughout their lives, I was interested and  astounded by the many remedies, which were ‘natural’ products.  Aloe Vera, which I have used to soothe my skin after experiencing  a terrible sunburn, is but one example. After spreading this gel-like solution from a plant, which looks like a cactus, but in  fact is a member of the  Lily family, my skin was instantly relieved from the irritation.  You can grow this plant in your home as long as you don’t expose it to frost.

What are some of the other ‘natural’ beauty remedies used by Native Americans?   The list is extensive.

Bearberry for itchy scalp, Juniper for shiny hair, Blue Corn to purify skin, Fireweek to protect skin from the cold.

The First Nations people had myriad ways to help them remain beautiful. Get a detailed description at this link: http://multiculturalbeauty.about.com/od/Natural/tp/Native-American-Beauty-Secrets.htm
