My biggest goal for 2010 is to live a healthier life. I want to live a little greener, nothing crazy, but healthier. I found these "eco- friendly" items at Farmhouse Wares . The image above is a bar of soap, I have developed rosacea and I get seasonal eczema on my hands and occasionally on my legs. This has made me more aware what I put not only in my body, but on it. I recently seen on tv an idea that I tried. They said for dry, sensitive skin to place a layer of honey (the real kind) on clean skin, let rest for 10-15 min. and then rinse. I tried this and I cant tell you how moisturized my face was , even 12 hrs later, not a splotch of dry skin anywhere. Try it and let me know if you do.
I cant remember all the scents, but one was lemon verbena, I think there was a lavender......can you imagine the fresh and clean scent they leave behind on your favorite tee-shirt. I cant wait to purchase these products this spring.....they seem so wholesome and yummy.
Another way Im going green......Im going to the library. Im a magazine-aholic....seriously, I have stacks of them and certain ones I always will. But this year I cut way down on the magazines coming to my mailbox. I found out I can pick up fashion mags, cooking mags, etc. at the library. I can keep them for a week and then take them back. Im in love with Mary Janes Farm magazine. Its made from recycled material and it feels so good, I mean the paper itself, it almost feels like a luxurious, self indulgent thing with this magazine. Cant explain it, you just have to pick one up for yourself!
This is an all-purpose cleaning spray from Farmhouse Wares as well. I really want to try and make these small changes this year and here is where Im starting....wanna start with me?
