We must be our own before we can be another’s.
The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?
I grabbed a bunch of organic squash at the farmers market today. Among them I discovered a new favorite, the delicata! It tastes like a butternut made love to a sweet potato, oh my, so good.
I rubbed EVOO on one and roasted it with cinnamon and some Celtic sea salt. You can even eat the skin!… I think I’m in love.
Reblog in my sleep!?
I apparently reblogged a post from my feed and do not recall doing so, haha. I discovered that I liked the context and decided to keep it anyways. :D
On my quest many years ago, as I learnt more and more about organic, healthy foods and body products, I began to rid my cupboards and shelfs of such harming things.
Its pretty easy to find any organic, real, natural product now a days to replace that chemical ridden product you used before.
For the most part, every new organic natural product I use, works just as good or better as the old product.
One thing I have struggled with though is- Deodorant. I’m not a stinky person, but My underarms do need a bit of attention. Seems like every deodorant I’ve used doesn’t work, in most cases it makes me stink more!
I was using a mineral salt deodorant in place of the chemical concoction of secret. I looked over the ingredients and notice ‘alum’ super shitty. Because of the leniency of the word ‘natural’ they can let this slip.
ANYWAYS. I was going to buy a d.o called ‘Primal Paste’ but I looked at the ingredients and realized, I can make this myself! So I did.
3 TBS Coconut Oil
3 TBS Arrowroot Powder
2 TBS Baking Soda
10-20 Tops essential oil (I used Teatree)
Half melt the coconut oil then add all other ingredients and mix. I did sift the powders.
Put in a glass jar or container you can seal.
Ill let you know what I think of it after a week.
"This feeling of being lonely and very temporary visitors in the universe is in flat contradiction to everything known about man (and all other living organisms) in the sciences. We do not "come into" this world; we come out of it, as leaves from a tree. As the ocean "waves", the universe "peoples". Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature, a unique action of the total universe." -Alan Watts
