You are the Gatekeeper Of Your Home

Hey There,

 I am so passionate about my job as the gatekeeper of my home. I was shocked when I learned more about the ingredients in most commercial cleaners and personal care products. These ingredients are known to be hormone disruptors. They wreak havoc on your body especially children, whose little systems are still growing. 

Good news. As the gatekeeper, you decide what comes into your home.

Girl, Clean Up Your Act With Thieves

Girl, Clean Up Your Act With Thieves
Hey, I know the idea of switching some of your products you use on the day to day to safer less harsh substitutes can seem daunting. Even though we know it is better for us, it can be a little overwhelming.

 Don't worry I got your back. You can make simple, easy changes that yield BIG results, especially in the kitchen.

The kitchen is the heart of the home. Most of our time is spent preparing meals for our families and cleaning up. So it makes sense to start in the kitchen if we want to get rid of some of those harsh chemicals we are using.

via GIPHY


Open your kitchen cabinets, I am sure you will see a ton of different types of cleaning products with an ingredient list a mile long of things you might not even be able to pronounce.
Before we start,  go to https://www.ewg.org/  and look up any ingredient that is in the cleaning supplies you are using right now. Or Google that ingredient with the word dangers of in front of it.

Get ready to be amazed or disgusted or a little of both.


 Look up those cleaning products that you are using to see where they rate. If it ranks a 4 or higher, girl you need to ditch it and switch it. If you can't find your brand just search for another similar brand, product or the ingredients if you can pronounce them. Or search on the EWG website.


Most commercial cleaners contain ingredients that are known as hormone disruptors. They can jack our hormones all up and wreak havoc on our bodies. It's no wonder many women are stressed out, worn out and feel bad!! If that's not bad enough, many are even known to be carcinogenic.... what? Yep and many countries have banned these chemicals. 



 You can replace all those "dirty" cleaning products with Thieves Household Cleaner from Young Living. Yep, just one product that can pull double duty in your kitchen and all over your home.

Here is the low down:

Thieves  Household Cleaner is safe for EVERYONE even our four-legged friends.
Thieves Household Cleaner is free of harsh chemicals.
Thieves Household Cleaner is formulated with the power of Young Living's Thieves Oil Blend with naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.
Thieves Household Cleaner uses an ultra-concentrated biodegradable formula AND you only need one cap full of Thieves to 16 oz water so one bottle will last quite a long time. I got my bottle in August  2018 and still have a ton left.

12 Ingredients To Avoid In Your Personal Care Products.

12 Ingredients To Avoid In Your Personal Care Products.

You don't know what you don't know, right?

But once you know, what next? Ignore it or make a few changes?

The ingredient list on our personal care products can be downright scary. With so many listed and many of them, you can't pronounce much less know what they are.  Try this--take a few of the ingredients listed and search on Google with the words "dangers of" in front of it and see what happens. It's shocking and to be honest, makes me a little mad. 

We use these on our children! Their little bodies are still growing which makes some of these ingredients even more dangerous.


Many of these ingredients are known as endocrine disruptors, which means they jack up your hormones. I don't know about y'all but my hormones don't need any more jacking up than they can be already!!

What exactly are endocrine disruptors?

They are naturally occurring compounds or man-made substances that can mimic or interfere with hormones in the body. They may turn on, turn off or modify signals that hormones carry. In other words, wreak havoc on our bodies.

You can read more about endocrine disruptors at https://www.niehs.nih.gov/health/materials/endocrine_disruptors_508.pdf 

 You never have to worry about Young Living products because they don't use questionable ingredients EVER. You can read more about ingredients you will NEVER find in Young Living products. https://www.youngliving.com/blog/australia/ingredients-youll-never-find-in-yl-products/

Here is the list of 12 ingredients to watch out for.


Propylene Glycol and Butylene Glycol--The EPA consider this so toxic it requires gown, gloves, and goggles when burying. They also warn against skin contact to prevent brain, kidney and liver abnormalities.

Parabens- Methyl, Butyl Propyl and Ethyl.Used as preservatives. Not always labeled. Used in deodorants and other skincare products and have been found in breast cancer tumors. May contribute to male sterility, hormone imbalance in females and early puberty.

Phthalates-Usually not listed on the label but in many products. Health effects include damage to the liver and kidneys, birth defects and decrease sperm counts.

Sunscreen chemicals: These are common ingredients in sunscreens. They are known to be free radical generators and are believed to damage DNA and cause cancer.

        Avobenzone

        Benzophenone

         Methoxycinnamate

         PABA

Another really big ingredient to look out for is fragrance. It can mean hundreds of different chemicals that they do not have to list. If you see fragrance listed, it's not good!

Ingredients matter Y'all!!



You can learn more about the ingredients used in some of the products you use  at https://www.ewg.org/

With just a few changes you can greatly reduce these potentially harmful ingredients. Even if only half of these warnings are true, why take a chance?

What steps can we take to make sure we are not using these ingredients in our homes?

Be more careful about what we buy by reading the ingredient label.

The Retro Housewives Guide To Chemical Free Cleaning (Free Printout)

The Retro Housewives Guide To Chemical Free Cleaning  (Free Printout)

Women will use approximately  80 chemicals  BEFORE breakfast. Wait, what? Yep, in just one product there are tons of ingredients and many of them are known to be carcinogenic and /or endocrine disruptors. It's bad stuff. It's bad for us, our family, and even our pets.

 I know when I first started learning more about the harmful ingredients in our cleaning products, I was shocked.  It can all be a little overwhelming trying to figure out which ingredients to avoid BUT we are gonna break it down and talk about  6 ingredients that are in most of 

4

Triclosan was BANNED by the FDA in 2016 BUT it is still in soaps, cleaners, and cosmetics.

5

Parabens used as a preservative and germicide. BANNED in Sweden and Japan.

6

Phthalates are used to make things pliable and are found in perfumes, kid's toys, and personal care products. Banned in Europe.

7

Sodium Laurel Sulfate creates that lather that we all love BUT it has been banned in Europe and Canada.

8

Propylene Glycol is used in cleaners, shampoos, lotions AND the main ingredient in ANTIFREEZE  Y'all.

9

Fragrances are found in candles, perfumes, cosmetics and much more. What is scary about this one is that companies DO NOT have to disclose fragrances on their ingredient list. Fragrance can mean hundreds of different chemicals that you are being exposed to.


How long do you think it takes these chemicals to enter your bloodstream?

26 seconds. Yep, 26 seconds before the harmful effects of all those chemicals are being distributed throughout your body. Since many of these ingredients are endocrine disruptors, it's no wonder that so many people have hormone problems these days.


12

Here is the exciting part. You do not have to use these 6 harmful ingredients. You have a choice. You can make many of your own cleaning and personal care products using essential oils. Don't worry, it's not hard and takes very few natural ingredients.

13

After a lot of researching I chose  Young Living essential oils.

It is a combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata and Rosemary essential oils that all have incredible cleaning power. Thieves is safe,non- toxic and you don't have to worry about using them around your children.

15

Thieves Household Cleaner is the bomb. It will take place of every cleaner you are currently using. It can be used on any surface in your home. It is safe for children and your furry friends.

16

Thieves Dish Soap effectively cleans your dishes without chemicals, dyes or synthetics.

17

Thieves Laundry Soap gently and naturally washes your clothes without any chemicals or synthetic residue.

18

Thieves Dishwasher Powder is chemical-free, environmentally friendly and no rinsing aid is needed.

19

You can also use the bar soap on tough stains in the laundry and my husband uses Thieves bar soap as a shampoo as well.
