Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop (9.28.14): The police are literally holding peaceful protesters hostage right now. They took them into custody (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining protesters for them to go home. This is some of the most ridiculous shit I’ve ever seen! No justice, no peace! #staywoke #farfromover (PT I) (PT 2)

On carrier oils

Someone asked me a few days ago if I could make a post with a list of carrier oils, so I promised I’d do so. 

What are carrier oils?

Carrier oils are also called base oils or cold-pressed vegetable oils are derived from the fatty portion plants.

How to use them?

Their use is implied in the name. These base oils ( or vegetable oils) are called as “carrier”, because they help to dilute an essential oil by then *carrying* it for use on skin, use on hair, etc—since essential oils are highly concentrated and can be irritating if used alone. Carrier oils can also be used alone. 

The eight oils pictured above are what I use in my skincare regimen (sweet almond oil & grapeseed oil only) and hair care regimen. Note: Yes, I use both types of castor oils. I initially used the Home Health brand, but then experimented with JBCO to see any differences. However, they work the same. So now, the clear variety is really just used for deep conditioning purposes, and the JBCO is used for my hot oil treatments (since it’s a lot more expensive for a such a small bottle). Trying to be economical here, and not wasteful! lol.

Below is not a complete, exhaustive list—but it’s pretty extensive! Maybe some of us can try experimenting, too! I’m thinking of giving a few new oils a try in the future.

BREAKING: Peaceful Protesters In Ferguson MO Get Pummeled By Police Officers After Their Chief Marched With Protesters

  • I think the PD is aggressively attacking protestors because they assume & no longer gives a damn
  • Chief Jackson did this. His officers did this. Women were attacked. He said he was marching with us. Lies..he set us up
  • And Chief Jackson didn’t do ANYTHING to stop the attacks and mayhem. DID NOTHING!
  • LOTS of cops out right now. A short clash with the police after arrests were made. Live Feed Here:

Fuck the police.  Seriously.  All this to protect a murderer.

Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop (9.25.14): Protesters in Ferguson are back out tonight, demanding Police Chief Jackson’s resignation and the immediate arrest of Mike Brown’s killer, Darren Wilson. #staywoke #farfromover
