in the past few years, partly out of lack of time and partly out of laziness, i stopped bathing daily. during the summer, i find myself bathing more often just for the refreshment of it but in the winter, i often go a week between showers. about the same time, i gave up commercial deodorant. most days i go without but if i feel i need a little help, i use patchouli essential oil.
apparently, this is becoming the newest trend.
i have found that with less washing, my body is less dry and my hair is not oily at all.
i think americans are overly obsessed with cleanliness, personal hygiene and germs in general and this is making us susceptible to super germs such as mrsa.
i think it would be great if more americans took on a challenge to bathe less for a month! wouldn't that be a fun challenge to see taking over america? i wonder how many americans would be willing to shower only 3 times a week for a month!
