Yes, I will move on to many, many more topics other than depressing toxic chemicals in our food and daily products ….but I must do a shameless plug while moaning about toxic chemicals in out beauty/ grooming products– men, you are getting saddled with this problem too in shampoo, soap, etc. (Check out my healthy living page for alternative, healthy grooming products).
The good news is we can do things to change this problem: we can a) buy better products, b) we can VOTE, c) we can lobby, d) we can do all this plus we can make our own products. It is quite fun and simple to make great products. In fact, I am teaching a class this Sunday with Dr. Dashevsky on just this very thing! The other alternative is to return completely back to the hairy, stinky times of dark ages–but you will not win friends or influence people, but you will have plenty of personal space.
Here is a recipe to inspire you to create:
Thyme and Fennel Seed Cleanser (for normal skin)
Fennel has been used throughout history as an aid to digestion or as a slight diuretic. As an infusion, fennel seeds can be gently cleansing and toning for the skin, and they can help reduce puffiness and superficial irritation. Thyme, which is used in antiseptic preparations, is a good astringent. Because this cleanser is very gentle, it can be used each morning. Dab it on your face and neck with a cotton ball, and rinse.
2 sprigs fresh thyme, crumbled (or 1/2 T dried Thyme)
2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed
1/2 cup boiling water
Juice of Half Lemon
Mix the thyme and fennel seed in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Add lemon juice and steep for 15 minutes. Strain the infusion and store the liquid in a jar, in the refrigerator.
