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

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 the Day my friend!

     Thieves essential oil can be used to make your own DIY cleaning and wellness recipes. 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. It is one of Young Living's most popular essential oils so it’s no wonder that Thieves is included in so many of the home cleaning and personal care products. It is a key ingredient in Thieves Cleaner, Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier, Thieves Wipes, and Thieves Foaming Hand Soap. Thieves blend is your go-to for an invigoratingly clean and spicy scent that smells more like fall baking than harsh cleaning formulas   

          
 
 So where can you get all the Thieves goodness?
 
You can buy it retail from my website  HERE
 
You can become a Young Living wholesale member. What does being a member mean? Think Costco’s or Sam’s. That’s it, You never have to share with anyone if you don’t want to.       ( There are two sides to Young Living.   Over 80%of the wholesale members are product users only and approximately 8-10 % are members who have chosen to build a business with Young Living ). There are no monthly requirements or quotas.  Your membership will get you wholesale prices on over 600 oil or oil-infused products like Thieves.  

You can join Young Living’s Essential Rewards program and earn free products and reward points on every purchase every month. It’s like FREE money back every month to be used on future purchases. DOLLA DOLLA BILLS Y'ALL.  

This is how I get most of my essential oils. I buy my household products, makeup, supplements that I am going to buy anyway. Then I use my points  I earn to get the oils I want plus the ones I get for FREE every month. It’s a good deal but it’s also totally optional. 


 
There are a few different options to start your wholesale membership.  The biggest bang for your buck is the Thieves Starter Bundle.
