Most anyone completing a cleanse knows that while one's body is detoxing, there is often an unpleasant body odor that accompanies until your system in clean. But the reality is that I don't want my husband to know about this odor... if you know what I mean. Enter Soaptopia!
Every time I have ever done the Master Cleanse, I have made it a point to only use all-natural toothpaste, shampoos and soaps. Since I'm trying to get unhealthy chemicals and toxins out of my body, it never made sense to put more back in while doing it. Unfortunately it's very hard to mask BO without chemicals... well, until now! I was at Whole Foods today to pick up some Master Cleanse staples and bumped into a display table with a clerk showing what looked like decadent cakes of all colors, shapes and sizes which would have been THE LAST thing I needed after not eating anything for four days. But the clerk caught me by saying, "they smell wonderful." I didn't hear a thing about taste... huh, she said smell... Oh! Soap! "They're hand made and all-natural", she added. Wow! Just in the nick of time! I'm about 2 days away from some serious BO... this soap deserved some checking out. They WERE a little pricey at $1.49/oz., but since I was paying by the ounce, I decided to pick a couple of small (yet strongly perfumed) blocks. Each block had a sign posted with every ingredient... all of which I could have eaten right then and there. Stupid cleanse! HA! I ended up getting a lemongrass bar and a frankincense and myrrh bar and rushed home to take a shower. That was at about 9 a.m. this morning. It is now about 7 p.m. and I STILL smell the frankincense and myrrh on me. This soap ROCKS and I will use it long after I'm finished with the cleanse. Just really great stuff that's really great for you. I can't believe that I'm actually going to smell pretty while doing the Master Cleanse! Yay!
