Quoting EvAndrea86:

Have you tried coco-butter lotion?

Hi EvAndrea86-

I have tried coco-butter lotion but it tends to have some ingredients that I try to avoid in the formulas. Instead, try raw/organic/virgin coconut oil or shea butter. To really and deeply moisturize skin, look for a body butter that has organic oils in it and beeswax. This will help lock in the moisture.

Quoting Apr1l:

Do u like non chemical nail polishes? What brands are good?


Hi Apr1l-

Some "clean" nail polish companies are:

 Kure Bazaar,Scotch Naturals and RGB... they all avoid these nasty ingredients: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and toluene.

Quoting Sunshine257:

Is agave nectar a good substitute for sugar or is it as bad as high fructose corn syrup?


Hi Sunshine257-

I'm not really into agave nectar, I'm not an expert on it but I've not heard great things. To sweeten- I like to use real maple syrup or raw honey. They taste amazing and honey has strong medicinal properties and maple syrup has good minerals.

Quoting BluLady:

Also my son and I both have eczema, is there any one product that we both may be able to use.


Hi BluLady-

For eczema- it is best to not use too much, as it will dry out the skin. Avoid fragrance detergents and soaps and lotions. For healing- you could both try using an aloe vera gel or a calendula lotion or cream or raw/organic coconut oil. Hopefully those products will calm down your skin.

Quoting camilieyes:

What do you suggest to get rid of skin tags?


Hi Camilieyes-

Best to go to a dermatologist when dealing with skin tags. I've hear all sorts of remedies- apple cider vineger, tea tree oil, thread, witch hazel... but I think it is a very personal decison and probably, in this case, the doctor knows best.
