Stumble Is Making Me Crunchy

I ~used~ to be a Stumble addict. I'm mostly over it, but that handy dandy little toolbar button is good for morning coffee-not awake yet randomness.

While I am far from crunchy--being a working and wahm mom and wife I am all about convenience most of the time--if I can be greener/crunchier easily I'm willing to give it a shot. Stumble knows this.

A couple of days ago I stumbled (literally) across Simple Mom's blog post on the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM to the fanatics). I had flawless skin in high school. Then I turned 21. Being alcohol legal may have had something to do with the decline in my skin, but since I've never been a huge drinker, I doubt it. Then I had kids. And discovered the joys of adult acne. NOT.

So I thought, what the hell, I'll give this a try. Of course, my cleanser mix is insanely complex--Target didn't have castor oil, I was out of EVOO, and I have a shoe box of supplies I bought during my "home made bath salts" phase in the late 90s. We'll see. Washed my face tonight and the smell was fantastic. The tea tree, eucalyptus, and clary sage totally masked the sheep smell of the liquid lanolin...

I also followed the link to her post on going shampoo-free. Since I've been paying $15+ a bottle for 10oz bottles of conditioner for the last two years, Imma try that out, too.

And I followed the link to PlantoEat.com. 30-days to less convenience food AND it integrates with my Google calendar? Sure, sign me up!

If I start wearing hemp and stop wearing deodorant someone intervene and cancel my StumbleUpon account, please :-)
