I'm not sure they used anything or even bathed. Bathing wasn't done regularly even just a few hundred years ago unless you were wealthy. So 10,000 years ago, I doubt it was done at all.  (more)

How do you feel otherwise? Any out of ordinary symptoms? When I came down with adrenal fatigue I could hardly eat a bite. Just want to make sure you don't have something else going on causing the lack of appetite.

Certain fatty acids are absorbed through the skin, yes. fatty acids absorbed in this way would be unlikely to cause inflammation like consuming an o6 heavy food or oil might.
