You Are What You Eat

I spent hours online trying to find a body balm that would drench my summer skin. I did not find what I was searching for even after an hour of googling. My criteria: no animal testing, no alcohol, not too expensive, smell good and it must be a new product for me. I googled. And googled. And googled again. My last google was 'body balm you can make yourself'. Youtube led me to this video. I shall never be the same! I can't wait to buy all the ingredients so that I too can make my very own body balm (which doubles as a hair creme too!)

I have finally found a fellow raw food lover and health mentor who shares the fact that unless you can eat it - you should never use anything (if you can help it) in your home, on your person, the persons in your care, your pets (you get the point)... I never realized until watching this video that our skin eats (you know, absorbs and takes what it absorbs into the bloodstream) chemicals and becomes part of us. I treat my body like a temple, but never considered the largest organ God gave me - my skin!

Truly, we are what we eat. I learned so much after watching this video. Gotta go now. I am in search of cow butter...

Hope this is a blessing to you as well!!!
