Well, can you?
That’s the “moisturizer” I’ve been using this winter. Well, this is the upgraded version. Previously, I was using 100% extra virgin coconut oil with a drop of essential oil. Now, I’m using about 50% extra virgin coconut oil, 50% raw cacao butter and a drop of an essential oil blend.
All of these ingredients? They come from my kitchen. So, obviously I have no problem slathering this delicious, coconut-y and chocolatey scented concoction all over my wind-and-dish-water chapped hands, or all over my entire body after a shower.
Everything that comes into contact with your skin is absorbed into your body, processed and detoxified by your liver. Especially all of those awesome chemicals and whatevers in conventional body “care” products. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty sure that after a decade and a half of hormone-disrupting-chemical and ammonia filled hair dyes and make-up, my little liver could use a break.
This is only one of many exciting steps along the path to becoming a Total Fucking Hippy, and if you would like to join me, I encourage you to go into your kitchen, grab some coconut oil and start covering yourself in it. If you don’t have any coconut oil yet, ask the next hippy you see where the closest natural foods store is, and go fetch some! I heard a rumour that it can be used to make some delicious, healthy chocolate, too!
