Secretly Obvious products have absolutely no fillers synthetics, preservatives, fragrances, or dyes, ever! We don't have the fanciest packaging, but that's because we are focused on offering only the purest ingredients straight from the plant source. We believe that the secret to life is found not just in plants, but in our symbiosis with them. While this may seem obvious at first, the truth is that Americans can only find secretly toxic products dressed in fancy packaging and false claims.
Personally, our sensitivities limit us to using only the most natural and unprocessed products we can get our hands on, or create ourselves. We knew there were people like us out there, and so we launched SecretlyObvious.com in 2014, but our story and the success of our ingredients goes way back..
Essential oils have been incorporated into customs from every civilization on the planet. This is because essential oils– REAL essential oils, have the power to transform human beings physically, but also practical uses in our modern and ancient worlds. One of the first recognized compilations by ancient healers is called the Ebers Papyrus, it contains recipes, ceremonies, and other information that Egyptians deemed worthy of preservation. Even the christian bible is filled with examples of the uses of essential oils by Jesus from birth until death. .
Our knowledge of essential oils, and how to use them has been passed down from father to daughter, mother to son, and husband to wife. It has been our health care system for as long as we know, and as people sensitive to chemicals and inorganic substances, we hope everyone who uses our products can experience the same relief and transformation that comes only from nature.
Our desire to share our family secrets inspired our company name, because once you realize that nature has always been there, the key to health seems so obvious!
How does it work?
There is no end to the tricks that synthetic ingredients (endocrine disruptors) can play on our bodies: increasing production of certain hormones; decreasing production of others; imitating hormones; turning one hormone into another; interfering with hormone signaling; telling cells to die prematurely; competing with essential nutrients; binding to essential hormones; accumulating in organs that produce hormones. These ingredients are the silent cause of many issues we have yet to properly address.
Through both topical application and inhalation through the lungs, essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream. This triggers a response from your limbic system which regulates your endocrine system, hormone & chemical secretions, mood, emotions, sleep, metabolism, and virtually every cell in our body for our our entire lives. Essential oils ground our bodies and fill in the gaps where our environment may lack.
Topically, essential oils are usually mixed with a carrier oil, and they naturally balance the Ph and sebum production, tightening loose skin, expelling dead skin and toxins, and resurfacing the skin with healthy cells quicker than any substance on Earth.
We know that modern pharmacology is essentially the process of taking the active ingredients out of plants and putting them in a pill, liquid, or powder, along with fillers and carrier or neutral substrates. By completely bypassing that process, and using pure plant extract which cannot be patented, investors in the essential oil lifestyle have more success and less cost.
Holistic means "whole" or "comprehensive" and that means telling both sides of the story. We believe that the secret to life is found not just in plants, but in our symbiosis with them. We are committed to sharing the power of nature's gifts and we hope you will join our movement in any way you can. Thank you for giving our products a try and taking the first step towards a truly synthetic-free lifestyle.
