Okay, we love roasted chicory root (which tastes kind of nutty - remember the coffee Chock Full of Nuts, of which was part coffee, part chicory)!

BUT - try roasted dandelion root!!  Where chicory root has more of a nut flavor, dandelion root has more of a cocoa flavor (at least to me!)  And, dandelions grow all over even where chicory doesn't grow.

There are other many wonderful coffee substitutes, but roasted dandelion ranks up there!  Just google how to do it, or you can buy it <3

Here's the science:

Eating Tomato Protects Skin.  

There are other plants to eat that can help.  I've seen carrots talked about and also lemons.

The most effective and pleasant external plant-based sunscreen I have used is organic shea butter but I did purchase it. It is about 4% protection.  



Indeed, actually I believe this is even better if you eat lots of organic berries, the darker the better (think blueberries).  I had forgotten to mention that!

You could infuse St. John's Wort flowers or Calendula flowers to add to the SPF, making it around double that.  Hope this helps <3



St.John's Wort flowers infused in olive oil is a healing mix for scars but it may leave permanent stains on your skin under direct sunlight, especially in warm climates.



I have actually made my own St. John's Wort in olive oil (I would spray a bit of vodka on the fresh plant before I put it in the oil to help it not mold), and I have used a purchased one from an herbal store.  Both times I never got sunburned, and I never got stained either, so that has not been my experience.

I've seen many authors use https://Rafflecopter.com to do their giveaways, it's like a sweepstakes. You ask online entrants to do social proof by following your page, signing up for email newsletter, follow on Twitter, etcetera. You can assign how many points you want to give each activity. Then it does the drawing!
@r ramson - Yes they do, or at least did. I have one! I don't use it as a cell phone though, but it has capability.  It's a Samsung. Perhaps it can be sold? It's about 2 years old and still works. Reply or private message me if this interests you!
