WHAT I DO
Goodbye Toxins, Hello Nature!
Goodbye Toxins, Hello Nature. I love that statement- it makes me feel good. You have probably heard the toxins aren’t so good for us....well you are right!
FIVE REASONS TOXINS ARE NOT GOOD FOR US
Toxic cleaning products can irritate our lungs and even cause long term damage.
Many any cleaning products have chemicals that act as hormone disruptors which can cause hormone imbalances with in the body.
Our skin is our largest organ. Everything that comes in contact with our skin can effect our wellness. Our skin acts as a protective barrier and toxins being pushed out from our body can cause rashes, dryness, discoloration, and more.
Have you ever gone down the cleaning or laundry aisle at the store and were really overwhelmed and maybe got a headache from the smells that you were smelling? That is all those toxins getting into your body. Do you really want those toxins inside your home?
Nervous system and cellular health
Toxins can cause cells to incorrectly replicate and also disrupt the neurotransmitters that the body relies on for nervous system communications. Toxins can have negative effects our cellular health, nervous system, brain, respiratory health, reproductive system, skin, and really almost every aspect of our wellness.
TOXIN-FREE FOR OUR PLANET TOO!
Toxic chemicals from cleaning products can end up in our water ways which damage the environment and can enter the food chain. Volatile organic compounds (VOC) in cleaning products can damage indoor air quality and even contribute to outdoor smog levels. Many cleaning product containers are not made from recycled materials which can fill our landfills. By choosing non-toxic products we can support our wellness while supporting the environment too!
Toxins are Bad, Now What?
Maybe you are dealing with one or some of the above health concerns. Are you thinking that removing toxins from your home care products could improve your life?
If the answer is yes, you are probably wondering.......Now what? How do I take care of my home with out the nasty toxins?
I can tell you before I did our own toxin-free makeover, I literally used every toxin under the sun. If there was a prize for the person with the most toxic products, I was the winner. I had ever body spray, room scenting device, cleaner, lotion and more. I was the queen of toxic products.
To ditch the toxins seemed like an overwhelming and impossible task. With research and trial and error, I found simple swaps that could support our health. I took it step by step and completely overhauled our home care products. I went through the kitchen, living room, bathroom, laundry room, and the whole dang house. Bit by bit we became 100% toxin free in our choices. Win!!!

The Power of Nature
Removing all toxins from our life is impossible. They are everywhere! But we can control the toxins in our homes and everyday living. Cleaning products, laundry supplies, personal & skin care products, and those things we reach for in our medicine cabinet don't have to be toxic to be effective.
Along my journey of removing toxins from our home, I learned about the power of essential oils and simple natural products. I also learned that just because a label on a bottle says natural that it doesn't mean it is free from toxins.
One of the most eye-opening ingredients was natural “fragrance”. Products with natural fragrance have become very popular. You see them all over. But the word fragrance on labels means it could be filled with anything, and that usually means toxins. What we really want is more nature. Having a trusted source for non-toxic products is more important than ever.
Would you eat a bowl of Froot Loops and say oh yeah, I ate a bowl of fruit.
Uh no. That’s not real fruit.
I want more nature —real nature and pure essential oils can provide that.
Not only do pure essential oils give us solutions to reduce the number of toxins we use in our homes and on our bodies, they also can provide physical and emotional wellness naturally. The essential oils I use can support nutritional goals, help us be comfortable as we exercise and move our bodies, support good quality sleep, manage our feelings of stress, and even provide us tools when we need informed self care options. Essential oils are tools that were put on this earth for us to discover and use wisely. With the decline of health in our world and the rising costs of western medicine, I want to empower everyone with the education and choices to take back control of their own wellness.
