The Body Butter Dream

By November 9, 2012

Follow me on:

I have a rich dream life.  I fly a lot, for instance  As I dreamt this morning,  I was looking at a book called "Body Butter" and the phrase was spoken very loud inside my head.

When I woke up, I thought about what a weird dream it was, but later realized it was practical guidance.   The weather gets colder and drier as winter approaches.  It is, in fact, the time for body butter.

I use one that I buy from a local herbalist, Barbara Fornal, in Accord, New York.   She infuses calendula,  burdock root and essential oils of tangerine, patchouli and lavender in a rich and skin-nourishing combination of organic olive, jojoba, avocado, peanut, wheat germ and coconut oils, along with shea and cocoa butters and beeswax.  The synthetics and preservatives are...nowhere.   It's a great natural beauty product. I'm supporting my local economy -- one real person.  And I'm helping my skin stay beautiful.

I encourage you to dump the expensive creams packed with synthetic ingredients and perfumes and ideally, look for locally made products. You can probably find them at local food co-ops, street fairs and Christmas bazaars that feature hand-made goods.
