Her shift was soon to begin. An emergency doctor, prepared for battle. Feet encased, monkey suit secured, hair harnessed, face masked. Glove? Only one? No time to search. Grabbing another, she greets her first patient of the day. An hour later her nurse giggled, “We found the missing glove, Doctor.” But why had no one said anything?  Perhaps the baby the doctor gently prodded and probed and...

With Covid-19, soap is even more of a necessity. Handwashing for 20 seconds or longer is not an easy feat. One trick is to sing Happy Birthday to yourself twice while enjoying the lather. Choosing what soap to wash with should be a huge consideration. I have taken excerpts from an article I wrote last year.  Soap or detergent? Liquid or Bar?  It is a good time to highlight the pertinent points...

New rules. Stay home when you can. Separate. Sanitize. Wash often, no less that 20 seconds. Not as easy as it sounds, so best to find a repertoire of fav songs to help master the task. Anything less than 20 seconds, not wise..How are your hands BTW?  Raw. Dry. Red. The Purells are deemed necessary, but they are harsh. Our hands are taking a hit. We need more creams, lotions, moisturizing butters...

Wash hands carefully and often. Avoid contact where possible. Disinfect. Eat healthy. And the list goes on. We are all trying to do our best to avoid becoming ill. For ourselves and for others. Some recommendations cost money that we may simply not have. Cold showers are free. With the spreading of the Corvid-19, I decided to revisit parts of ‘Go Cold, So No Cold' that I wrote over 7 years ago,...

You have a moderate to mild case of acne. Your doctor refers you to a dermatologist who suggests a benzoyl peroxide treatment plan. Doctor approved. Dermatologist recommended. What could be safer? In the past, we would never question this scenario. Today we do. Why? Because we can. Many professionals roll their eyes when we mention Google. There is a lot of misinformation out there. Agreed. We...

Setting: Guelph university. Fair November Craft Show, November 2019Testimonial from a customer 2 months later On our ESP bar I had the good fortune of browsing through your vendor table at Fair November at the University of Guelph, and I am so thankful. I cannot express how much this shampoo bar has made a difference for me. I have psoriasis, particularly badly on my scalp. It got to the point...

No Scents Please. Fragrance Free Space. No Scents Makes Sense. We Share the Air.  The signs are popping up everywhere. Public waiting areas and increasingly more work places are demanding that we refrain from using perfumes and "scented" products.  I get it. We are allergic and sensitive and sickened by the toxicity in the air, sharing close quarters with petrochemical and carcinogenic affects...

“Please don’t open”, I begged the suite door to our adjoining rooms. “Be well, my daughters.”. I was in the claws of a severe food poisoning that night and was sick beyond any nightmare I could have imagined. Day number 3 at our Cuban resort. Thankfully, the door remained silent. In the morning, my husband summoned the doctor for me.   “Where did you get this arsenal?” he exclaimed, as he perused...

If you have found a skin care line that works for you, kudos. Stick with it. It is like having a job you are happy to greet each day. I tried to find the % of people who were happy with their skin. Google was confused with this request, but did acknowledge discussion on ‘one’s skin and happiness’. Our skin is our mirror. No one likes to hear, “You look tired.” If the person is a good friend and...
