| MOONFAT | Moon Fat Bod Oil employs the grassy muskiness of Clary Sage essential oil, evoking the lunar vibration. Think a damp, moon filled night. Clary sage opens us up to a new way of seeing. There is a way to see things differently in the moonlight, to get in touch with parts of ourselves that maybe softer, more ancient, more intuitive. Moon Fat Bod Oil merges practical and magical properties; that’s how witches do.
INGREDIENTS Apricot kernel oil*, jojoba oil*, rosehip seed oil*, essential oil of clary sage* 4 fl oz
| LOVE THYSELF | The warming elements of the Love Thyself Bod Oil reminds us of the sensuality of being incarnate. Vetiver and clove essential oil make for a warm and earthy blend. The warming properties of clove make the Love Thyself a perf massage oil.
INGREDIENTS Apricot kernel oil*, jojoba oil*, rosehip seed oil*, essential oils of vetiver* and clove* 4 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.
