Embracing Winter!

Embracing Winter!

I’m still trying to love winter weather…so far this winter has been a breeze. When I was a little girl we used to ice skate, make huge snowmen, dodge snowballs from our snow forts, and play outside for hours. Then we would sit by the fire and sip hot cocoa to warm up. Really great memories.

This year I’m trying to get out in the weather everyday…we’ll see what happens when it gets really cold.

If your skin gets dry in the winter cold, take great care of it with our soap. You’ll feel a difference with the skin loving olive, coconut and hemp seed oil.

I also moisturize my skin after a shower with coconut oil. And…treat your dry spots with our heavenly sugar scrubs. It will leave your skin lightly scented for your holiday party.

Toxic Alert!

Knowledge = ability to make good choices.   I will be writing a series of blog posts on toxic ingredients.  Never take it for granted that if a product is available on the market that it is good for you.   Many products are made with  ingredients because they are economical or that they produce an artificial color, smell, or lather; not bassed on what is good for you or the environment.  These posts will be brief, but will give you an idea about what to look for and avoid.
Look for this ingredient and BAN it from the products you purchase and use.  It DOES make a difference.

SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE

.Toxic Alert!

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), is a foaming agent that is used in 90% of commercial personal care products. These products include toothpaste, shampoo and conditioners, and body washes.
However, SLS is so strong it is also used in car washes, garage floor cleaners and engine degreasers. The M.S.D.S, a government body, classifies SLS as a severe skin …irritant. In tests, animals exposed to SLS experience eye damage, central nervous system depression, laboured breathing, diarrhoea, severe skin irritation, and even death.

Read ingredients and know what’s in the products you use. Choose ingredients that are Good for You. and Good for the Earth
