Why I Threw Away All the Chemicals in My Home: And How You Can Too!
I'll admit, I was no where NEAR even caring what kind of products I used on my skin and in my household even just a year and a half ago. Sure, I did my best to eat well and exercise, but I totally did not even realize what I was doing to my body. Almost two years ago, I was forced to focus on what products I use and what I expose myself to in terms of chemicals. And friend, it is so worth investing in your health. I am so thankful I decided to make the switch to chemical free products and essential oils - my life is so much better for it.
Take out your phone really quick and download the Think Dirty app on the app store (it's free!) and start scanning the products in your home. You'll be FLOORED.
My hubs thought I completely lost it when I started throwing all my shampoo, deodorant, laundry soap, hand soap, dry shampoo, hairspray, bug spray, sunscreen, household cleaners - pretty much anything and everything that had a toxin in it - into our trash can with a huge smile on my face as I tied the trash bag, threw it over my shoulder, and tossed it in the garbage can in our garage to get picked up. And I couldn't be more relieved! Take a moment to do your research and really learn what's in those products you use daily and how those chemicals will affect your body long-term. It can be pretty scary!
How do you replace all those yucky products with good, safe ones??
Through Transfer Buying!
Transfer Buying is when you purchase a few items a month from Young Living and throw away your yucky product when it arrives. So for example, when I ordered Thieves Dish Soap I threw away my bright blue, yucky dish soap. This way I was able to replace my chemical-filled products in our home with better, safer products I trust, without breaking the bank.
Young Living has a plethora of products infused with essential oils: beauty, household, laundry, kids, pets, men's products, moisturizers, deodorants, shampoos/conditioners, mouthwash, toothpaste, hand soap, dish soap - pretty much anything you'd be purchasing at your local store anyway, but wayyy better for you!
I purchase all my monthly products through a super awesome program called Essential Rewards which gives me money back right away to use on future orders (hello free stuff!), and also qualify for other free promos that change monthly. Your first month you'll get 10% back right away, and 25% back after 9 consecutive months! It's the BEST. All the stuff you need, every month, sent right to your doorstep in a pretty brown and green package. And it's safe for you and your family.
