Natural Body Care: l.c. of acirema Review

Linen Spray

Linen Spray

If you’re anything like me, after you’ve made the transition to eating real, unprocessed foods, you start to notice all the other areas in your life where toxins creep in.  Suddenly you’re worried about the dish detergent you use, the cleaning products stocked in your cupboards, and the body products you lather on your skin!

When you’re just starting to transition away from conventional products, it can be quite overwhelming to contemplate making everything yourself.  I started out by looking for options at my local health food store first.  You can find some great options.  However, even many of the body care products you find in a health food store may still contain ingredients that you want to avoid.

I’m so glad to share with you a terrific source I found for high-quality handmade body care products that you can order online.  I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I have!

l.c. of acirema

I first learned about these products when the owner, Lori Roop, came to one of my GAPS get togethers.  It was fun to learn that she makes all sorts of wonderful body care products in her home in Old Town Arvada, Colorado.

Lori is a certified clinical herbalist.  She tests all of the products that she creates on her own family.  If it doesn’t work well for them, she doesn’t sell it to you!

She is very careful where she sources all of the ingredients that she incorporates and never uses parabens, fragrance, or other synthetic ingredients.  Lori uses certified organic or ethically wildcrafted ingredients for her products.  She also works hard to find the best prices possible to keep her products affordable.

The Products

Herbal Facial Kit

Herbal Facial Kit

Lori was kind enough to supply me with a sample of just about every product that she makes and sells.  She has quite the collection available!

I thought it would be best to share a few of my favorites with you, and you let you take a look at her Etsy shop to see the rest that she has available.

My favorite by far is her oil facial cleanser, Mug Preference.  I had been wanting to give the oil cleansing method a try for quite some time, but it was always really daunting to me to try mixing my own blends.  After using Lori’s blend for some time now, I love cleansing my face this way!  My skin looks clearer after using this for the past few months.  If you’ve been hesitant to try the oil cleansing method, I highly recommend giving it a shot with this product!

My next two favorites are the other two items in her Herbal Skin Care Kit: Queen of Mug Herbal Toner and Eye Pop/Skin Revitalizing Lotion.  Both the toner and moisturizer have been a really nice addition to my skin-care routine.  Neither is too heavy and they have contributed to my nicer skin as of late!

Dragon Juice

Dragon Juice

One other favorite product that I want to mention is Lori’s Dragon Juice.  She first brought some for me as a gift when she attended my GAPS get together.  I try to drink nettle tea for asthma and allergies somewhat frequently, but it’s not my favorite taste.  This blend is so delicious!  Even your kids will like it – especially because of its red color!  This has such a nice flavor that I will even mix extra nettles in with it before steeping.  I get extra nettles in a tea that I actually enjoy.

Try It Out

Foot Butter

Foot Butter

There are quite a few other products that I know you’ll want to try, such as the  linen spray, exfoliating mask, or foot butter.  Be sure to check out Lori’s Etsy Shop. And now through February 28, 2013, Too Many Jars Readers will receive 30% off your order when you use coupon code LUCKYJARS30.

I hope this helps you take that next step in your health journey by using high-quality body care products!

P.S.  Check back tomorrow for a giveaway from l.c. of acirema!

Real Food Fermentation Made Easy (And a Giveaway!)

Real Food Fermentation

Real Food Confession

I have a confession to make. I have been dabbling in real food for several years now, and on the GAPS Diet for more than a year, but I still struggle with fermented foods.

I know, I know. I should be able to make all types of varieties of fermented vegetables, dairy products, and grains. The truth is I typically just make sauerkraut, if I make any fermented veggies at all, and I typically stick to making yogurt for dairy products. And that’s about it!

That’s all about to change after reading Real Food Fermentation by Alex Lewin of Feed Me Like You Mean It.  His book lays out amazing step by step directions for all sorts of fun, fermented foods.  Alex has included everything from basic sauerkraut to more unusual ferments, such as mead.
