It is November, it is cold, it is dark…it is bath month. Let me explain before you decide that I’m crazy :) I have noticed a pattern in my bathing habits over the last 10 years or so. For most of the year I shower each morning but at this time of the year I have more baths. I’m not entirely sure why this is but my November in my ‘bath month’. I expect it’s a comfort thing.
Anyway, I was having a bath this afternoon and I found myself reading the ingredients at the back of shampoo and bubble bath bottles (as you do). I was alarmed by the number of ingredients in the products in my bathroom. One shower gel had 22 ingredients, most of which I could not pronounce. It may be quite ignorant of me not to have paid attention to this before but I am turning over a new leaf.
In a bid to reduce the amount of chemicals entering my bloodstream I am embarking on an experiment. For one week I am going to ban chemical filled bath,bady and hair products. I realise that there are chemicals in many things in my home but I am attempting to tackle one thing at a time.
During this week I will only use 100% natural ingredients found in my home to create bath and body products. I love a project, fun! I won’t be buying any Lush products either, their soaps make my skin unbearably dry.
I will keep you updated on my progress and any changes I notice with my dry, sensitive skin.
Amy au naturale style :)
