This entry is a hodge podge of my newest discoveries about things that go in and on your body. Excuse the meandering.
First, organic rose hips oil is great for moisturizing. Put it on damp skin or under any other product. You can order it online–I have tried various companies. Here is one: http://www.herbalremedies.com/
A great moisturizer for hair is Jojoba oil. Put it on after shampooing when you hair is damp. You just need 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. spread on your palms then distributed evenly and lightly through your hair. A good source is Trader Joes.
Some excellent products are Simple Green Naturals. They are borax based with botanicals and are inexpensive. I have found them at Lowe’s.
Have you looked for a natural bug repellant? The only proven one is lemon eucalyptis oil. You can get it at high cost, diluted with other ingredients as a bug spray from REI or online. You may also just order it full strength at a lower cost. I ordered an organic product from New Directions: http://www.newdirectionsaromatics.com/eucalyptus-organic-essential-oil-lemon-p-378.html?=. They were prompt and cost effective.
Healthy sunscreen and make-up have been an ongoing search for me. I have finally settled on Burt’s Bee’s sunscreen (which I also use as concealer for under my eyes), Physicians Formula organic liquid foundation and mascara, and Burt’s Bees lipstick for blush. There are many other alternatives rated by the Environmental Working Group –
As for things going into your body, my new discovery is the WonderMill
http://www.thewondermill.com/ This grain mill grinds enough flour for bread in a few seconds to any degree of coarseness that you desire.
And for assisting regularity, amazingly effective is milled flax seed. I put it on shredded wheat, oatmeal, salads or grapefruit. It has a nutty taste and adds lots of fiber. The organic version is available at most grocery stores.
And a cheap source for those who want organic food to juice is Sams. They have organic carrots, raspberries, spinach, and greens. And for those doing the Gerson program, they have organic coffee.
