Barefoot Love

Anyone who knows me well, knows I love all things natural... after all I am the poster girl for barefoot and pregnant :-) My latest interest is in all natural body care products. A few months ago, I was visiting St Jacobs and stumbled upon the Olivier Soapery in St Jacobs ( I was immediately drawn in by all the delicious smells and pretty impressed that they actually make a soap that smells like chocolate! Their soaps are olive oil based (rich in vitamins and minerals) and you can actually eat them!! I don't recommend it but they are completely chemical free and safe. Their philosophy is simple- if you can't ingest it, you shouldn't be putting it on your skin. I couldn't agree more- skin is the largest organ in the human body and skin cells are quite permeable, which means substances can seep through easily into the bloodstream. Think about it- scientists designed the nicotine patch because they learned that the skin would absorb it right through the skin to the core of the body. When you use products that contain chemicals in them, your body eventually begins to store the toxins in your body because it can't break them down and that is when illnesses start occuring. Don't agree with me?- check out what is in your shampoos and cleaning products- then do some research to see if the ingredients contain cancer causing carcinogens- let me know what you find!

I love Olivier soaps. I've been using some of their products since we found them in New Brunswick 4 years ago.
I didn't know they had chocolate flavour...mmmm.

Love all the barefeet- and I love fancy soaps- olive oil soaps are the best! I also LOVE African black soap too.
