O to the M to the G!!!

Happy Spring! It’s been really hard for me to find the time to blog lately with other writing projects/meetings and Spring Break, but I had to make some time to share this amazing new love in my life – something that many of our mothers and grandmothers took religiously as children!

You Wash your Face with What?!

That is usually the exact response I get after I answer someone’s question as to what I use on my face if most traditional cleansers are so ‘bad’. As a civilization, we haven’t always had chemicals at our disposal to take care of our skin.  So, we used what was available at the given time. [...]
