You know I could talk about plants and their eye popping, jaw dropping, tongue twisting properties ALL day! ….kind of like it’s my job.
There is truly no end to the wonder of plants, and believe me, I’m content to talk your ear off about them.
But, to confess, the super truth of the matter is my favorite part of herbal medicine is the RELATIONSHIP between plants and humans. I’m all up in that business. I want to know all the gory details of that dynamic, the romance, the drama, how it went meeting the parents; is it a ‘read the newspaper in bed on Sundays’ kind of relationship???
Being an herbalist lets me wear my nosiness like a badge of honor.
So why am I sharing one of my glaring personalities flaws with you? Well, to talk about Skin of course!
Here’s where Plant Oil meets epidermis…
From the jump, Skin always thought Plant Oil was cute, but from afar- she wasn’t so sure about Plant Oil’s wild ways. You know, having all these crazy nutrients and phytochemicals. Plus, could she really get over her barrier character strategy and really accept all Plant Oil had to offer?
Plant Oil had its eye on Skin since she started to emerge from under the fur of our ancient ancestors. Plant Oil was like, “Oh dang, I could synergize with that”. Plant Oil hollered at Skin, got to know her sebum, and they found out that besides having so much in common, they were downright complementary!
When Skin finally showed her vulnerability by sharing with Plant Oil about the complex makeup of Skin’s sebum, which includes a fatty acid exclusive to human beings that promotes cell health, one that Plant Oil’s nourishing properties emphasize and support- the two knew they were meant for each other. The rest is history.
