Making natural petroleum-free jelly with lemongrass, vitamin e, coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax. I love beeswax because it is a stable component in a lot of my natural products. Good fact to know about beeswax: it has a flashpoint of 480-490 and will set on an intense fire that is pretty hazardous. Flash fires should be dampened with flour or baking soda never water :) #mywork #trueandnatural
Why do I keep looking at these awful co-op craigslist ads under housing?
Maybe because the pricing seems right but then you read shit and it’s like a giant circle jerk about how fucking awesome and ~liberal~ they are but they have a thousand restrictions including no sort of meat or dairy products are ever to touch the fridge because that’s murder and EVERYONE can be vegan if they ~try hard enough~
Talk of how they prioritize POC, QPOC and queers (no mention of disabled folks in any ad I’ve ever read so far, not even as an after thought) yet it turns out the entire 8 person household has not a single person of color and it’s totally in the heart of the bay area (what??)
Lots of talk of being intentional and community driven
I guess I’m going to end up in teeny tiny “apartment” that suffocates since, all these beautiful giant co-op homes don’t seem to even consider the existence of disabled qpoc & as much as I can be intentional about getting up at 8 am every morning to walk the dog ooonly 8 blocks as part of my required community support it really depends on if my body is even going to let me get up before 9 that day
Oh how fun it is to be chronically ill/disabled in the bay
