A Less Polluted Body
@heavydreamz, That’s great! I knew of a few of these but certainly not the cancer aspect. And now I am less worried that baking soda is harmful :)
@kellah, @francina, You might find this interesting! I typically wear only eyeliner. Occassionally I’d use powder if my face is looking red. Since I’ve been trying to make a full chemical free transition, I haven’t been using makeup at all.
@bgood, woot! that looks fantastic! My exams finish tomorrow so i’ll add that to the top of my list of things to do!! haha, i love almonds. I bet it would work fine with any other nut too though.
also @heavydreamz, @bgood, http://www.newrealities.com/index.php/articles-on-health/item/532-the-healing-benefits-of-cinnamon–honey this was really cool too reading about cinnamon and honey. Like Baking Soda, super cheap but super good for you!
@francina, I didn’t measure when I made mine, but I’ve read recommendations stating equal parts of coffee and oil. I just added some oil to an old shampoo bottle and put coffee in and shook it all up. I kept adding enough coffee until I had a paste. I also shake it before I use it to get it all mixed up again, as I think it may settle in the shower. Where you have sensitive skin, maybe you could try putting the coffee through a coffee pot first, or even just boiling the grinds. This may soften them up a little.
@bgood, thats really good to hear. I’ll check back in once i’ve made my own stuff! I was gonna do a deodorant out of baking soda and coconut oil. i love the smell of coconut as it always makes me think of summer so hopefully the oil smells just as good lol.
@francina, I am just now seeing the link you posted earlier. That is some great information. There are several suggestions on there that would show improvement in daily life almost immediately, so it seems. I do find it strange, however, that the article states at the top of the page ‘do no ever boil or microwave honey, as it kills the enzymes.’ And, then a few of the remedies call for it to be boiled… :p
Also, I made the eyeliner with decent success. I recommend crushing the soot as finely as possible, as it will make it smoother to put on.
Going to college means I am going to be eating shit food which means an unhealthy body. I wish I just went straight to Valhalla. I definitely feel the effects on my mind and body.
@blankey, this thread should have some good pointers on how to survive in a broke situation, I am a student also and like a said earlier.. joining a CSA was one of the best investments I’ve made.
@bgood, that looks beautiful! well done. and i agree about a spoonful of honey! honey lemon and ginger drink cures like every sickness for me hahahah. yeah i stumbled upon that link a couple months ago. i try to have cinnamon every day… i have oats each morning because i love them hahaha. oats mixed with cocoa powder (the 100% stuff, not with sugar too) and cinamon mixed through, boiling water poured on top then fresh seasonal fruit, rasins, and almonds on top of that. Yummest breakfast ever! in my humble opinion ;)
@francina, Thanks! Your breakfast sounds very similar to mine! Oats with cinnamon, banana, frozen raspberries and strawberries, almonds, and raisins (no added sugar of course). The cocoa is a great idea, yuum! I just with I could have fresh fruits, but being here in Maine, good produce is hard to find this time of year, and even harder to keep for more than a day or two.

@bgood, Great topic :) great indeed.
I will share with you my personal experience. For cleaning my body, I use only the natural soaps. And when you wash your body, you don’t have to, you don’t need to rub your whole body every time you get under the shower.
Do not use pharmaceutical garbage, no matter how hard the pain is. Don’t use any legal drug :) Because it’s legal with purpose to keep you inside the magic circle.
And remember one thing:
I proved that when experimenting on myself. I was vegetarian soul for only 8 months. Doctors told me to pay a lot attention on my diet during the winter days, because the amount of food for vegetarians is smaller, and she knew that I am no rich girl to buy vegan stuff, and high quality food just for myself (I have 4 more family members). So… I wasn’t eating healthy, most of the time I was hungry, but I was happy with my life and myself :)
