The "Natural" Alternative

You know what has always bothered me?  That so many alternative items are made to mimmic nature.  That there are pharmaceuticals made which have the same effect as something natural and far better for the body.  We are creating synthetic alternatives to nature but endorsing them to be more favourable options.  It blows my mind to think about how many natural things can achieve the same results as their artificially and chemically synthesized brothers.  You know we are being made fools when more people have heard of the latest facial scrub, pharmaceutical drug to cure insomnia or the floral air freshener that smells "just like jojoba oil" than things that already do these things without being humanly created to do so.  For all we know jojoba oil could smell like anything if its synthesized scent is all we know.  It's like a dip I saw called "avocado style dip" which barely tasted of avocado, but if you'd never tasted the natural version you would never know.  And for many of us it is like this, we are oblivious to what is natural because we already have our packet of synthetic to do the job for us.  What is the point?  Sadly this is what happens when the world is driven by money instead of logic and good intensions.  However I accept that this is what must happen for many to survive and I know I have the choice to use natural products.
