It’s been a Gorgias day of paper-writing, and yes, “Gorgias” is pronounced just like “gorgeous”–it made me do a double take too when that was what my Philosophic Classics teacher said we’d be reading. The first portion basically is fleshing out what is oratory, and at one point, Socrates differentiates between beneficial crafts and flattering knacks for the body. Example: medicine takes care of the body’s inner health, pastry baking is yummy but doesn’t really take care of the body’s inner health*. Gymnastics takes care of the body’s fitness, cosmetics make the body appear better, but don’t really do anything for the body’s fitness. Where is this going? (Don’t run away yet I promise I’m done talking philosophy.) I’m calling Lina Hanson’s Global Body Serum a beneficial craft.
I thought I was going to DIY my way through bodycare – that is, if single-ingredient DIY’s count. I had jojoba oil for makeup removing but a certain papaya oil cleanser took over the role…hey, I could use that on my body! I had coconut oil for cooking and after last year’s scare, I wasn’t going to put it on my face…hey, I could use that on my body and smell delicious!
