One Hundred Percent Pure

I became a bit concerned after a friend asked me some questions about what an essential oil she bought at Joann Fabrics did, and not in a good way.  This oil, ladies and gentlemen, regardless of whether it said 100% pure, or “therapeutic” is absolutely not pure.  It’s laden with chemicals, pesticides and adulterated with goodness knows what, and definitely diluted with some kind of carrier oil.  Did you know that the FDA only requires a company to add only 5% of actual “essential oil” to a bottle and the rest can be whatever they want to add to keep the cost down?  This couldRead More →

I haven’t colored my hair for about three years.  Why?  Because as I progressed into the future of a more non-chemical life, I knew that I couldn’t use the usual brands of permanent hair coloring solutions found at most stores across the US.  So, I just decided to forgo my color, and learn to love my gray, until I could find an alternative I could be happy with.  Is there such a thing?  Yes, there are alternatives.  One is Henna, but it is super messy and hard to work with and does not stay long, it’s not really permanent.  Last time I tried Henna IRead More →
