Toxin Free Home Tips

Removing Toxins from the Home – Household Cleaners!

Toxin Free Home Tips

My love of Young Living essential oils is about this amazing alternative way to support wellness.  Identifying and removing toxic chemicals from the home is a huge piece of living well and is super important for our families, kids, and even pets!!  These hidden toxins are easy to eliminate once you know what they are and what products contain them.  It just takes small changes as you learn.  Once you are informed, you can make better buying decisions and truly protect your home!

Let’s specifically look at what is in most cleaning products.  Then in upcoming posts we will talk about laundry soaps, fabric softeners, beauty products, as well as candles and air fresheners.

There are many brands of cleaners that say all natural or a ‘green’ cleaner and still may have hidden toxins such as these listed in this graphic.

Toxins in household cleaners

In addition to the 3 most common, there are additional toxins that you want to be aware of, as they can disrupt our bodies and have the potential to cause long-term harm…

  • Phthalates (i.e. fragrance)
  • Quaternary Ammonia Compounds
  • Triclosan
  • Chlorine
  • Sodium Hydroxide
  • Perchloroethylene

If you have not heard of these or their dangers, please take this research a little further.  Google the ‘dangers of … ‘ to learn more. You will be shocked as to what harm they can cause.  We get to make the decision whether or not we are going to allow them into our homes.  There ARE safer options!

Alternatives for Cleaning

Young Living makes an amazing household cleaner that contains NONE of these harsh toxins.  It has replaced all the other cleaning products we used to use, and it is safe for kids and pets too.  Thieves Household cleaner is a concentrate.  One cap full makes a 16 ounce bottle of all-purpose cleaner, just by adding water.  Each bottle of concentrate makes 29 bottles of cleaner and can clean your whole house!! It smells so good and does a really great job with the cleaning power of Thieves.  I am kind of obsessed with this cleaner and its multitasking abilities.

DIY Cleaning Recipes

You can also make some of your own simple cleaners.  Here are a few recipes…

Toxin Free DIY Cleaners

Take a look at the Environmental Working Group website at, www.ewg.org, to see where the products you are currently using rate.  Their scale is 1-10 with a 1 being the safest.  You can also download the Think Dirty app for your phone and get similar product information.  Some products that you may have thought to be safe, may not be at all.  It is eye-opening for sure.  It is SO IMPORTANT to make this step for you, your family, kids, and pets.  These are harsh chemicals that are just NOT safe and way too scary to allow in our homes.

We are on this journey of learning together!  Happy healthy cleaning, friends!! 🍋

April 2017 Essential Rewards Order

Sharing all the details on my April essentials!

April 2017 Essential Rewards Order

 

I was so excited to open my Essential Rewards order this month!!  There was so much awesomeness in this box, at my front door.  This month it is our favorite things and then lots of freebies!! 🎉

FREE!

Tangerine Vitality, Tea Tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia), Oola Grow (this is a NEW! one for us)…AND the Thieves Household Cleaner with the 8oz. glass promo spray bottle. Yay!! Loving these free oils and the Thieves Cleaner we use for EVERYTHING!  This is one product that will hands down replace tons of toxic products in your home.  You can clean mirrors, glass, countertops, tubs, toilets, windows, use it as a spot treatment for clothes…I mean the list goes on and on.  It is a concentrate so it goes a long way and smells amazing too!! ❤️♨️🌿

FAVORITES!

NingXia Red

A superfood drink that we love!  Just a few ounces and you are good to go.

Peppermint

I always have this oil on hand, in my purse, and even tucked in the middle console of the car.  Energizing, calming, and supportive! 💚

Thieves

You know this oil!  A must-have, right?  Our first and still favorite essential oil.

Copaiba

This oil is a gem.  It has high levels of beta-caryophyllene and its sweet scent helps create a relaxing atmosphere when diffused or applied topically.  Combine Peppermint and Copaiba for a post workout massage.

Cedarwood

It has a woodsy and calming scent.  The skin loves Cedarwood.  Add it to shampoo, conditioner, or face moisturizer.  To enjoy the outdoors you can add Cedarwood to Citronella oil, Tea Tree, or even Lemongrass.

Mineral Essence

This is a “balanced, full-spectrum ionic mineral complex enhanced with essential oils.”  Mineral deficiency is common and is at the heart of many wellness concerns.  Ionic minerals are the most fully and quickly absorbed form of minerals available.  So 5 full droppers once or twice a day!!  Put it in some juice or a little water and shoot it back. 😝

Oil Bottle Cap Labels

Organization…Organization…Organization.  Your oils will look so neat and you can easily check inventory.

Orange Blossom Face Wash

This face wash is great!  I have always just used a tiny bit and washed my face.  A little goes a long way.  This time I decided to turn it into a foaming face wash, at the recommendation of many.  It is just as nice!  Take a pump bottle (even an old Thieves foaming hand soap bottle) and 2 tablespoons of face wash and fill the bottle the rest of the way with distilled water.  Shake before each use.  You are all set!! 🍊
