I am tracking my petrochemical free life - so this blog is simply a reminder of where I am at, for later use.
I am washing my face with castor and olive oil at night and with water in the morning. looking good, feeling good!
I changed from the bee-wax cream to simple grape seed oil as a moisturiser - and VOILÀ! My skin is responding pleasingly, texture improved, hydration increased and blemishes diminishing.
The bicarb shampoo is OK (I think), however the conditioner probably needs some changing as my hair is dull and limp and looks greasy, although it is not. I am going to make another conditioner, with ginger, honey and orange tea, and with less vinegar - 100ml to a litre - and no essential oils as I think it is the oils that are causing the trouble.
The toothpaste experimentation has oxidised, so I am back to plain old BS and I feel it is much better this way.
The coffee machine exploded last night, so that takes care of my caffeine addiction in a hurry and I am interested to see if this makes a difference to the appearance of my skin.
Poor old coffee machine. You will be missed! RIP
