FAT AND THE MOON || ALL CREAM
I first learned about this recipe through my friend Adriana, who tweaked the recipe from Rosemary Gladstar- one of my medicine woman icons. From this lineage, I’ve experimented and created my own recipe for the BEST cream I have ever used. This is coming from a real product whore, I still have an embarrassingly large stash. I would buy creams and lotions for my face, for my body, for my feet etc and found they would work great at first, but would soon lose their luster (hence the stash). This cream is truly an ‘all’ cream. I use it for my face and body and find a little goes a long way. A small dab is enough for my face. Love economy in products!
What makes this cream so great? I would say the perfect blend of hydrating and toning elements like aloe vera and rosewater, with moisturizers and skin protectors like organic sunflower oil and shea butter. The whipped consistency reminds me of cream cheese frosting, which doesn’t hurt.
This cream is best when used within 4 months of purchase, if you stick it in the fridge it will last twice as long. Please select size accordingly. Fat and the Moon doesn't dabble in chemicals that make things last forever.
2 fl oz.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’.
In part, I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
