Other must-haves in my wellness and beauty arsenal include fresh ginger, which I drink daily in my tea, coconut oil for everything from taking off makeup to oil-pulling for healthy gums, and henna. Gloppy as heck and a pain to apply every six weeks. But I’ve been doing it since my 20s, which makes me a poor candidate for chemical coloring, and besides, as my hairdresser says, it keeps my hair in phenomenal condition. And I confess, I can’t go anywhere without flosspicks. Addicted. And did I mention I adore essential oils, too? Isn’t it great that most of the goodies that make self-care fun are either free or affordable?
What are your rituals and ingredients for self-care? I’d love to hear about the traditional or better yet weird, fun or unexpected things you include in your routine. Who knows? If it sounds interesting and at the very least harmless, I might give it a try and report back to you!
