Toxins and chemicals = bad. Toxins and chemicals led to my extremely high-risk pregnancy. Toxins and chemicals = harm to every part of your body. Toxins and chemical almost killed my daughter. Be free of the fear of toxin and chemicals. Essential oils saved us and can save you too. Here’s why….
#1 The Facts Are Startling
Getting ready for some cringe worthy stats.
The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health conducted a study that looked at 2,983 ingredients in the home. Of those ingredients:
- 884 were considered toxic ingredients
- 314 caused biological mutations
- 218 caused reproductive issues
- 146 were known to cause cancer
Did you know….there are no federal regulations of chemicals in household products. That means there are no standards, no testing, no data, no notification for products in the marketplace. And that means no one is watching out for us.
Cancer Is Under Our Control
According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 3 cases of cancer is directly linked to poor diet, physical inactivity, poor weight or chemical exposure. ONLY 5% to 10% of cancer is caused by gene defect. That means 90% to 95% of cancer is under our control. Managing what we eat, what we bring into our home and what we put on our bodies can help us all.
Stress Can Kill You
Beth Greer, author of Super Natural Home, lived a very similar lifestyle to me managing her weight and eating mostly organic food thinking this was enough. Admittedly, her life was chaotic and stressful which she believes caused her cancer. After re-evaluate her entire life from what she was eating, to personal-care products all the way to the environment she was living in, she made a change, one of which was using Essential Oils.
But why does it have to take a medical crisis for Beth to change or for me to change? DO NOT WAIT TO MAKE A CHANGE! In waiting there is pain, there is suffering and heartache. By making the change now you can protect yourself and I am here to help.
In a 2003, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Harvard School of Public Health conducted a study that found men who had higher traces of phthalate in their blood had reduced sperm count and poor sperm quality. Toxins and chemicals = reproductive issues
A Great Resource
Check-out the Environmental Working Group . Their mission is to “empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment” through breakthrough research and education. A mission statement like that is hard to beat. Who doesn’t want to live a healthier life? My favorite section is the Consumer Guides that rate common household products based on their toxin levels. My aunt introduced me to this group after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She opted not to go through with chemo and instead reevaluate her toxin and chemical levels using this website as a guide.
#2 Starting at Home is Easy & Simple
When I first heard about Essential Oils, I thought people using them were a little crazy, granola or hippy. Those are limiting stereotypes. In all actuality, people who use Essential Oils are progressive, educated and looking for alternatives. As Derek Henry from the Healing the Body says, “when you are called ‘extreme’ for going natural, and ‘poison’ is considered normal, you might just need a new tribe”. Below are some options for natural, not poisonous, options:
Replacing Household Items
You can replace almost everything in your home with Essential Oil infused – TOXIC AND CHEMICAL FREE – products (that are already made – not DIY versions):
All purpose cleaner
Window & Glass cleaner
Dish and Hand Soap
Bath & Shower Gel
17 different products formulated just for kids
Make-up – one of my personal favorites
Items for muscle aches
These are items free of:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate (SLES)
Synthetic Perfumes/Fragrance (Phthalates)– another article
Harmful, not Helpful
Not only do these products get rid of harmful, nasty stuff in your home, they help support your immunity. Even more, Essential oils support your skeletal, muscular, circulatory, endocrine, and respiratory systems. They help support your hormones and your reproductive systems. They help support a healthy weight. They help with your brain health and emotions. I don’t know any of my household cleaners or products that help support my respiratory system. I do know some (bleach) that harm my respiratory system.
If you are struggling with any of the areas listed above, stop, reevaluate and reach out to me for more information.
#3 They are Practical & Affordable
I like Essential Oils because they are practical and affordable.
They are practical for these reasons:
- Get money back with every purchase
- Receive Loyalty Gifts for consecutive purchases at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months
- Easy, convenient ordering
- One-stop shopping for everything you need in your home
- Front-door delivery
- Toxin and Chemical free living
They are affordable because:
- Average cost is about $10 to $30 a bottle
- It takes about 1 to 3 drops per application
- Bottles come in two sizes: 5ML (90 drops) and 15ML (250 drops)
This means that for each application the average cost of an Essential Oil is around $0.06 to $0.15 which is truly affordable.
Where to Start?

- Research the company to make sure they have the highest integrity and quality – you don’t want nasty chemicals and toxins to be loaded in your EO products
