FAT AND THE MOON || GROWING BELLY BALM
Made for the momma to be or the ambitious glutton. This balm is like a cloud made of butter- cocoa and shea butter that is. Hard to decide whether I want to eat it or slather it more. Whipped to perfection, the above mentioned butters along with almond oil support and protect the skin on its journey beyond. Use IN the shower to seal in moisture, rub yourself down when your skin is wet and elastic and towel dry as usual.
This Belly Balm is a super moisturizer and works to soften elbows, knees and feets too! Give that growing belly toting person a foot rub aaand a belly rub!

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.
