When faced with a diagnosis, or anytime you are trying to detoxify your body and life, it’s important to look at what you are putting on your skin.
If you don’t want to put it in your mouth, you don’t want to put it on your skin. Our skin is absorbing everything we put on it right into our blood stream.
The personal care industry uses over 80,000 chemical ingredients. 60,000 of these have not been properly tested. The chemistry of these ingredients may be brilliant for what they are designed to do; preserve the product for a long shelf life, make the product foam, make the product smell pleasing, make the product cheaper to produce. Often times, personal care products are not created with the awareness that each ingredient will make it’s way into the users blood stream.
A truly clean and healthful life has no room for such toxins.
Making your own skin scrubs is so super inexpensive, fun, and nutritionally beneficial not only to the skin, but to our entire systems. The kids love to make them too.
This Chocolate Honey Salt Scrub
uses fresh organic cacao powder, raw honey and sea salt to make an extraordinary, aromatic, nourishing treat for your body.
Cacao is high in skin building minerals like magnesium, calcium and phosphorus, and vitamins E, K, B1, B2, B3, B5, and B9. It’s like taking a supplement through your skin care, and the more you do it, the more you will benefit.
Enjoy this treat.
As always, with love, light and green drinks,
