Easy WaysTo Reduce Toxins In Your Home

Easy WaysTo Reduce Toxins In Your Home
                         Why  Should  You Care About Toxins In Your Home?


 Creating a better quality of life for our families doesn’t have to be complicated. If you are ready to start reducing the number of toxins in your home, 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-friendlyquirky, hip, and homemade—but hold up check the label.

                      So, How Do You Remove Toxins From Your Home?
 
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!

How Safe is Your Haven? ( FREE Checklist)



              I was shocked when I learned more about the ingredients in most commercial cleaners and personal care products. These products are chock full of synthetic ingredients. Synthetic means fake, not real, manufactured. Our bodies do not know what to do with them. The result is an overload on your liver. Your liver is your body's filtration system and is overworked trying to filter out the fake ingredients we constantly put on our bodies. This can lead to numerous health conditions.

These ingredients are also known to be hormone disruptors and they wreak havoc on our bodies especially children, whose little systems are still growing.  Some ingredients are even known carcinogens, which means they can cause cancer y'all. 

Good news!

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. 
thieveshc2017_loveitshareit

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.


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. 

These ingredients can be even more harmful to 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. Many of these ingredients are synthetic, which means fake. Our bodies were not created to filter out the fake stuff. Our liver, our body's biggest filet can get overloaded making us feel sick, sluggish, and downright tired.  You can read more about endocrine disruptors at https://www.niehs.nih.gov/health/materials/endocrine_disruptors_508.pdf 


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.

Make Your own products using essential oils. ( Don't worry it's easy and usually has just a few products)

Buy from a trusted source. Young Living has more than just essential oils. There are over 600+products to choose from and you don't have to worry about questionable practices or ingredients.
