Whole- Home Wellness For You And Your Family ( FREE PRINTABLES)
                              Whole-Home Wellness For You and Your Family


 Creating a better quality of life for our families doesn’t have to be complicated. If you are ready to start on a path to cleaner living and whole-home wellness, you are in the right place.
 
You would be surprised at the number of harmful chemicals in the products that we breathe in and apply to our bodies daily. Literally hundreds before breakfast ALONE (especially women). We are exposed to chemical combinations all day every day and no safety data exist on these. It’s impossible to know how much damage we are doing to our bodies.  Have you ever started coughing immediately after using a cleaning product? Yea, me too!

              Even if we do not feel an immediate reaction, we are not in the clear y’all. Over time, these chemicals build up and create a toxic overload. Many of these chemicals are synthetic—that means they are FAKE.  Our bodies do not know what to do with them. Our liver, our bodies filter is overworked, our hormones are out of whack and our body can be out of balance and cause a whole host of problems like eye and throat irritation, headaches, respiratory issues, allergic reactions, worsened asthma, and possibly even cancer.   Yep, you read that right.
 
I was shocked when I learned what was being used in so many of my favorite products.. Don’t think that some brands that say “natural” or “toxin-free “are safe.  Always check your labels. Here are just a few to look out for.
 
SLS—Sodium Lauryl Sulfate—cancer neurotoxicity, organ toxicity, skin irritation, endocrine disruptors (hormone/thyroid).
 
Benzisothiazolinone—eye and skin irritation.
 
PEG-2 Cocomonium Chloride—evidence of cancer, developmental/endocrine/reproductive effects; damage to DNA.
 
Methylisothiazolinone—possible neurotoxicity, nerve damage, lung toxicity, and allergic reactions.
 
Phenoxyethanol—eczema, life-threatening allergic reactions.
 
Fragrance—this is a BIG one y’all!! An undisclosed chemical cocktail—trade secrets.
A WHOPPING 12,500 ingredients fall under the umbrella word, FRAGRANCE on a label.
 
  •  Manufacturers are not required to list their fragrance ingredients on product labels.
  • Often only one-word ‘fragrance” or “parfum” is used on the label and can hide a cocktail of more than 100 ingredients.
  • 75% of fragrances contain phthalates which have been linked to cancer, infertility, pregnancy loss, and birth defects.
  • Fragrances are common triggers of asthma, migraines, allergies, and sinus problems.
 
Fragrances are linked to so many profound health risks that avoiding them is probably the #1 change you can make to reduce your family’s exposure to toxic chemicals. It only takes 26 seconds for chemicals in your cleaners to enter your bloodstream through the skin, this includes EVERYONE in your home especially our kids since their little bodies are still developing. It is just not worth the risk!!

Why would companies do this?   It’s called Greenwashing, they mislead consumers about the health, safety, and environmental impact of their products. They use those cheap synthetic fillers that we talked about earlier. Some popular brands in candy-colored bottles seem eco-friendly, quirky, hip, and homemade—but hold up check the label.
 
We’ve all used products that aren’t the best for us, but we can’t let old habits dictate our future. Companies are smart but WE are smarter and as the gatekeepers of our homes, WE get to decide what comes in. So, what can we do?

Thieves essential oil blend is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma.

Why You Should Be Using CBD For Emotional Support

Why You Should Be Using CBD For Emotional Support

  I  love love love to share natural products that can help support our emotional health. CBD is just one more to add to our wellness toolbox. First, we are going to talk specifically on how we can use CBD  for emotional support. I  know it's all the rage right now and you can find it everywhere but where you buy from matters. In the second part of this series, we will talk about Nature's Ultra CDB. Young Living has acquired Nature's Ultra so you know it meets the same great Seed to Seal Standards AND is the onlY CBD with essential oils so you get all the benefit of those aswell.  I am getting ahead of myself

In the U.S. alone, mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression affect over 40 million adults annually. Even people who don’t suffer from long-term emotional issues may experience occasional symptoms. And with a slew of risks associated with many prescription drugs, many people are looking for alternative ways to alleviate feelings of anxiousness and depression. If you’re thinking of adding  (CBD) oil to your daily routine, read on to learn some of the current scientific research about CBD and emotions.


Most people believe that depression and other emotional issues result from a serotonin deficiency in the brain. The hippocampus is the area of the brain that is responsible for memory, learning, and emotions. 

Serotonin plays a role within the hippocampus as a vital neuromodulator. Its primary function might be to maintain homeostasis in the brain. A deficiency of serotonin can contribute to mental illness, but it is not often the root cause.(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4825106/)

The good news is that this area of the brain is capable of regeneration, or hippocampal neurogenesis. It is possible for new nerve connections to form and the brain to be restored to its normal, non-depressive state. 

Although numerous studies about CBD’s effects on the brain exist, ongoing studies are happening now to evaluate the long-term effects of its use. However, the potential of CBD to help with emotions is quite promising.

 When evaluating the brain-healing potential of CBD oil, the studies refer to CBD’s ability to protect living neurons (neuroprotection), to help form new connections (neuroplasticity), and to trigger the formation of new neurons (neurogenesis). Most of the findings indicate that CBD is key for neuroplasticity in that it directly affects neurotransmitters.


Although numerous studies about CBD’s effects on the brain exist, ongoing studies are happening now to evaluate the long-term effects of its use. However, the potential of CBD to help with emotions is quite promising.


It is exciting to know that there are so many natural alternatives to use to support our emotions without turning to methods that can have harmful side effects as well as being habit-forming.

Ditch Sugar Cravings With Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Ditch Sugar Cravings With Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
"Sugar does induce the same responses in the region of the brain known as the “reward center”—technically, the nucleus accumbens—as do nicotine, cocaine, heroin, and alcohol."
- Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Hello friend!
When do you crave sugar?  During an afternoon slump?  Dessert after a great meal?  Late-night binging? If you answer yes to any (or all!) of these, you're not alone.

Sugar has become ingrained in our diet. The sweet stuff is a ubiquitous source of calories in the Western diet, even though experts agree that sugar is a major contributor to many major diseases.

In fact, it's the daily consumption of sugar that is literally destroying our health. Dr. Alan Greene, a pediatrician who sits on the board of the Institute for Responsible Nutrition, says sugar-sweetened beverages, along with cakes, cookies, and ice cream, are some of the major offenders, but hidden sources of added sugars are also a concern. He states, “What happens is that Americans are having dessert several times a day and don’t know it."

Reducing sugar can be tricky, as they're more than fifty ingredient names that are code for "sugar".


As you work to reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet, be sure to check for these hidden sugars!

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: CINNAMON BARK
Cinnamon was used throughout history to help balance blood sugar levels. In recent times it's been found to help alleviate sugar cravings as well.

When your blood sugar levels are unstable, you may find yourself overeating and gaining weight. Combine this with the fact that when your energy levels are low it's difficult to exercise and burn calories, and you wind up with some extra stubborn weight.

Using cinnamon oil can help you overcome these issues that are standing in your way! Check out this study on the effects of cinnamon on glucose levels!

Ditch the Sugar Habit With a Little Help From Essential Oils

Ditch the Sugar Habit With  a Little Help From Essential Oils
"We now eat in two weeks the amount of sugar our ancestors of 200 years ago ate in a whole year."
John Yudkin
Happy New Year, friend!

A new year, and a new decade, is upon us! I hope your holidays were merry and filled with happy memories, and that you're ready to jump into a new decade with anticipation for what's to come!

While we generally promote a healthy lifestyle, including nutrition, all bets are off when it comes to holiday eating! Cookies for breakfast? Candy for a snack? Sweets and treats galore? That just about sums up the holidays for many of us!
The good news is that essential oils can really be your best friend when you're ready to get rid of your sugar cravings once and for all! This month we'll be learning a little bit about how you can use essential oils and NingXia Red to kick your sugar habit.

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: GRAPEFRUIT
Grapefruit is basically the all-in-one sugar kicker! It reduces feelings of hunger, wards off carb and sugar cravings (praise hands!), it may help balance blood sugar, and induces feelings of positivity (which can help combat emotional eating).

Often the afternoons bring both a slump in energy and those lovely cravings for something sweet. That's a great time to grab Grapefruit Vitality and add a drop or two to sparkling water for a refreshing drink. Or use the Sugar Snap (Out of It) roller to help curb your craving.

Fun fact: Grapefruit essential oil has properties that may prevent weight gain (here’s the science).
