As in previous blog postings of mine. I use castor oil. There's an old post about face wash that I use twice daily and hardly ever need to use any moisturizer. Even in the winter in Ohio (yuk).
Did anyone's mom make you take a spoonful of castor oil? Those were the good old days. We thoguth she was crazy. But maybe she wasnt.
Here's a link to a few uses that I don't use but may incorporate.
These videos are so amazing. I love their under two mintue explanation of dang near everything. This one sows the muscles of the back. The core that flex the body. Extensors. How a muscle atrophies, the difference between some common problems/symptoms and more. All in under two minutes.
