Mother’s Day…I wanted to be prepared. I wanted to take the day into my own hands, and make it magical in my own way.
I decided it was time to make even more big changes in our home with oils and the products we were using.
For Mother’s Day, I was going to take a seriously deep dive into my own health and wellness.
I was already working on making better choices with the cleaners, candles, and other personal use products (make up, shower gels and lotions) for a while, but it turns out, I only peeled back the first layer.
I literally had no idea how many toxic products I was using, and how it was affecting my health.
I was tired, worn down, and hormonally – a mess.
That’s the hard part.
Companies know they are adding ingredients to products that are wigging out our health.
They k n o w it, and this is the part that kills me!
There are over 1300 substances completely banned from use in products in Europe. A more recent set of regulations called REACH puts further regulations on more than 500 of those toxic ingredients.
By comparison, the FDA has banned 11.
The US banned only 11 of the thousands of toxic ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be harmful to your health. This means it’s up to us to pay attention to what we buy and what we don’t.
Lysol, Tide (yes even Tide Free and Clear), Bleach, Clorox, Colgate, Dreft, Dryer Sheets, Aveeno, Johnson & Johnson, Pledge, Windex, Dawn, Cascade, Purell, and those are just a few common everyday products that are slowly harming every system in the body.
And if you’re feeling any tinge of guilt right now. Don’t. Do not. I’ve been there too, and I literally had no idea because no one told me. I used to use ALL of those and more. I wish I knew then what I know now.
This is the big reason why I love to share what we use everyday in our homes.
I made a video to show you all the surprising ways it’s blessed our family – yes, even emotionally together, which is what I see being a mom as all about.
(Just promise you’ll ignore the glaring glasses, lol)
Your oils do only as much good as you let them, so I invite you to dive in and learn all you can. Don’t be intimidated, we all started not knowing much. The good news is, I am here to support you!
I am running a promo on a mother’s day starter kit HERE.
It includes everything you need to get started and have a nice range of oils to help support your body. Think: Emotions, Hormones, Immune Support, Sleep (annnnd….even healthy weight management if that’s something you are wanting to support. My husband are using all the healthy weight oils in prep for summer).
