Surprise and delight your sweetheart with a romantic massage this Valentine’s Day. All thumbs? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few simple tips to create a relaxing and romantic mood and make them putty in your hands.
Nothing sets the mood like candlelight. Use soy or beeswax to keep the atmosphere free from the chemicals often found in paraffin candles. Use a fluffy towel or clean bed linens fresh out of the dryer to provide a warm and soft surface. Make sure the temperature of the room is comfortable and there are no annoying blinky lights or noises from electronic devices. Soft music with a tempo that is slower than your heartbeat will help create a relaxing atmosphere.

Did you know that your skin absorbs 21-100% of what you put on it? It’s a big spread, but the point is that your skin always absorbs at least some of what it comes in contact with. That’s why nicotine patches work so well.
Walk backwards in your head…what do you put on your skin everyday? Water, moisturizers, soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, face powder, deodorant, toothpaste, lip stick or lip gloss, blush, foundation…need I go on? The average woman puts a dozen products on her skin every day. Men? You’re up there too. It’s a bit shocking when you realize what a cocktail you slather on yourself on a regular basis…and you thought you didn’t have a drinking problem.
Luckily, enough people are starting to pay attention to the fact that there are toxic chemicals in synthetic body care products that are best avoided. Navigating the world of chemicals isn’t easy, but there’s help. You can use the ThinkDirty app to scan the UPC of your body care products and it will give you a safety rating. You can also refer to Gillian Deacon’s book, There’s Lead in Your Lipstick. You are also welcome to ask us if you come across a ridiculous sounding ingredient and want to know what it is.
This is why we do what we do. Wash and moisturize with stuff you don’t have to think twice about, you’ve got enough on your mind.
