So you haven’t been persuaded that Young Living essential oils have medicinal properties and can be a huge part of your families health. Okay, I get that. Some people take more time than others to trust those “snake oils”.
But, even if you don’t believe in the oils and you don’t want to use them, you still need Young Living in your home.
Because one of the main goals of Young Living, Gary Young and myself is to see every home be a toxic free home. And you don’t need the oils in order to have that. You really don’t. Can they help you? Yes, but they are not required to start ditching the toxins in your home.
Here are some startling statistics for you to mull over:
What, what, what? Back up and rewind that. That means that the products that we are lathering on our skin (our biggest organ) and are putting into our bodies are causing cancer. Ouch. Don’t you think that’s a big deal?
There are products out there on the shelves that have known carcinogens in them that cause gene mutations and we blindly follow these companies without doing the research. One product that got to me was laundry soap. That is some nasty stuff! Companies put synthetic estrogen inside of their soap and it’s no wonder so many of us women have hormones out of whack. I don’t know about you but I don’t want my daughter or sons absorbing fake hormones.
Your skin directly absorbs anything that you put on it, without it being filtered, and it goes right into your bloodstream.
You can’t eat organic and ignore that what your slathering all over the skin isn’t harming your body just as much, if not more.
The US has over 100 chemicals that are banned in other countries but are widely used here.
Companies are not required to reveal what is in their ‘fragrance’ that you see listed in the ingredients.
They are specially formulated and are considered company secrets. So consumers cannot even know what it is exactly they’re putting into their body. Within these fragrances lies a large percentage of the toxic chemicals. I don’t know about you but that just doesn’t sit well with me.
Do you disagree? Download the ThinkDirty app and start scanning your products. This app breaks down all of the stuff that’s inside your products into what level of toxicity and what types (ex. Hormone disrupters, gene mutation, etc). So not only do you know exactly how toxic the product is but you also what effect the chemicals have on your body.
It’s a big eye-opener! Products like Meyers, that claim to be all natural, are no better than the blue Dawn on your sink! Companies are being sued for their false claims of being toxic free. You can’t trust most companies. You have to be your own advocate for your families health.
And here’s a shocker, most leading floss brands use Teflon for that super smooth glide that you get. Uhhh, people avoid Teflon in their cookware but are blindly using it in their floss. Du Pont – the company who owned the Teflon cookware – was sued for using cancer-causing Teflon. Yet consumers don’t realize they are flossing their teeth and it’s still being absorbed into their bloodstream. Friend, you have to educate yourself on your products.
But you can trust Young Living because Gary Young is passionate about being transparent. You can visit any of their farms and distilleries any time of the day and be given a tour and see for yourself how they carry out their Seed to Seal promise.
Seed to Seal is Young Living’s promise to us that their products are pure-check out their sister site just on this promise! They oversee each step of the process from choosing the best seeds, soil (they won’t plant in soil until they’ve tested it for 5 years! Now that is dedication to purity!), harvesting, distillation to bottling. They subject all of their oils to 8 rounds of testing for purity if it fails just one of those 8 tests that oil batch isn’t sold. Gary isn’t messing around when it comes to the purity of his products. He’s built his whole company upon this promise.
But will they work as well?
They’ll work better!
The household line of Thieves has stood up to bacteria testing, mold testing and more! Thieves is a powerhouse! Using Thieves Household cleaner is a not only a chemical free product that works but it’s also a cheaper option.
But they don’t have suds, they can’t possibly be working.
That’s a myth. Companies added a toxic chemical called SLS into everything from dish detergent to shampoo to toothpaste in order to make these things get sudsy. They were not added to make them clean effectively. SLS are known carcinogens, you can get the same cleaning effect without the chemicals.
Listen, I’m here to get you thinking about this not to tell you what to do. The simple fact is is that we are poisoning ourselves and our families every single day. If that dish soap you are using says do not swallow, contact the Poison Control Center if ingested, and we wash our plates, cutting boards on it and then we’re eating off it we are putting these chemicals into our bodies. An educated woman is an empowered woman.
Know better, do better.
