Are Your Household and Personal Care Products Safe?

ARE YOUR HOUSEHOLD AND PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS SAFE

Thanks so much for stopping by! I want to support you on your wellness journey by teaching you why you should become more aware of the products you use on a daily basis and how you can make better choices with the help of Young Living essential oils. First, let’s start with the why. I’m going to get into some scary facts, but stay with me until the end. I promise that you’ll eventually feel empowered and ready to take control! Ready? Let’s dive in!

The scary truth…

Did you know that the number two cause of death in the United States is cancer?1 In 2017 in the U.S., there will be an estimated 1,688,780 cancer cases and 600,920 cancer deaths.2 One third of cancer cases in the U.S. are directly linked to tobacco, alcohol, poor diet, physical inactivity, weight, infections, radiation, or chemical exposure.3 Only 5-10% of all cancer cases can be blamed on genetics.4 This means that of the estimated 600,920 cancer deaths expected in 2017, as many as 570,874 of them are preventable! It comes down to how we take care of ourselves and what we allow into our homes.

In 1989, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) analyzed 2,983 chemicals in our personal care products—and found 884 of them were toxic. 778 can cause acute toxicity. 314 can cause biological mutation. 218 can cause reproductive problems. 146 can cause tumors.5 Additionally, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) identified 150 common household chemicals linked to allergies, high blood pressure, migraines, birth defects, cancer, and mental disturbances.6 While other countries around the world have banned many of these chemicals, they are still allowed in the U.S.—we’re talking about chemicals lurking in products that Americans use every single day!

The skin is the largest organ of the body. While the skin is enough of a barrier to keep fluids within our body (except for its controlled release of sweat), it readily absorbs many substances like a sponge.7,8 The average woman uses 12 products containing 168 ingredients every day.Scented soap, body wash, and facial cleanser contains DEA/TEA (a potential carcinogen), shampoo contains sodium lauryl sulfate (a skin irritant that is linked to eczema), conditioner contains phthalates (two of the phthalates used in the U.S. are banned in Europe), lotion contains parabens, phthalates, and petroleum derived mineral oil (all three of these are endocrine disruptors), feminine powder contains talc (a chemical that has been directly linked to ovarian cancer), toothpaste contains fluoride and comes in a bottle that says, “call Poison Control if swallowed,” perfume contains fragrance (which is often made up of unlisted trade secret, yet dangerous, chemicals), and deodorant contains aluminum (which scientists believe may be linked to Alzheimer’s and breast cancer). Even worse, each product often contains more than one dangerous chemical.7,8,10

The most hazardous chemicals in the home are found in air fresheners (ex: plug ins, candles, or sprays), chemical cleaning supplies, drain and oven cleaners, furniture polish, dishwasher soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, fabric softener, and fabric sheets.11 When cleaning products are used, those chemicals become part of our indoor air quality—it’s no wonder the air inside our homes is more toxic than outdoor air quality.11 Think about this—we wash our clothes in a neon colored and synthetically fragranced laundry detergent that has a long ingredient list we can hardly pronounce, it outgases in our closet all night long, and it eventually sits on our skin.12 Yikes!

The Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) of 1976 grandfathered in at least 55,000 chemicals currently on the market today.12 What does that mean to you? Simply put: these chemicals have not had any safety testing and we know very little information about their side effects.10 In June 2016, President Obama signed the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, which updates the TSCA and requires all existing chemicals to be evaluated for unreasonable risks to human health and the environment.14 However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has years to complete this task, and we currently continue to be at risk.15 Toxic labeling is only required if 50% or more of the animals tested die.10,16 Additionally, while Europe abides by a “precautionary principle” that is based on the idea that harm to consumer health should not need to be established with “full scientific certainty” before corrective action is taken, the U.S. waits for ingredients in consumer products to cause harm to public health.7 To sum this up, we are our own experiment! Scary huh?!

It is expected that sometime during the 21st century, 40% of all Americans will get some form of cancer during their lifetime. In fact, in 2002, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) reported that they expect cancer rates to double by 2050. Additionally, according to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), 80% of these cancers will be caused by environmental factors.11

What happens when your body is chemically burdened? You may see it in something as devastating as cancer. However, most of us experience it in other ways: lack of energy, poor motivation, inability to concentrate, memory difficulties, dizziness, trouble sleeping, chronic inflammation, trouble breathing, migraines, muscle aches, joint pain, nausea, skin issues, stress, nervousness, among others.11,12 If you struggle with any of these issues, it’s time to make changes and kick chemicals to the curb. YOU CAN DO THIS! It’s about taking small steps and saying, “NO MORE!” You can’t control all the places you are exposed—but you are the gatekeeper of your house and you can control what you allow in your home.11

There’s a better way…

Not sure where to start? It’s OK. I’m here to help. :) This is about small, simple, baby steps. Start by looking up your household and personal care products on the EWG’s Guide to Healthy Cleaning, EWG’s Skin Deep Cosmetic Database, or the Think Dirty app (the app is my fave). Take it one month at a time and swap things out in your home. You can easily start swapping out many of your harmful products for some very simple DIY options made with essential oils or for some of the oil infused products that Young Living offers. DIYer or not, there are SAFE AND EFFECTIVE options for you!

The best way to begin…

To help you get started, Young Living offers a Premium Starter Kit and a Thieves Premium Starter Kit. The Premium Starter Kit includes an entire collection of essential oils (11 bottles, to be exact) and a diffuser. The Thieves Premium Starter Kit includes an entire collection of safe oil infused household and personal care products to help you easily kick harmful chemicals to the curb in one easy sweep (it also comes with two bottles of essential oil). Both of these kits will rock your socks off and give you a great start! Click the ‘get your own oils’ graphic below to learn more about these kits.

Why Thieves Household Cleaner Rocks!!

Have you looked up your current household products on EWG’s cleaner database, the EWG’s Healthy Living app, or the Think Dirty app yet? If you have not yet done so, YOU MUST! It’s a bit scary, but quite eye-opening. Once the initial shock of what you learn wears off, I think you’ll feel empowered and ready to take control. When you’re ready to start swapping out for safer alternatives, just take it one month at a time, one product at a time. :) You can easily start swapping out many of your toxic products for some very simple DIY options made with essential oils -OR- for some of oil infused products that Young Living offers. DIYer or not, there are SAFE AND EFFECTIVE options for you! If you’re not sure where to start, you may want to consider the Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner, which is an all-purpose cleaner that is safe to use around everyone in your family, including children and pets. It is one of my favorite oil infused products from Young Living!! To use, add 1 ounce of Thieves Household Cleaner to 30 ounces of water in a spray bottle, and clean any surface of your home (think kitchen, bathroom, floors, windows, etc). One bottle of Thieves Household Cleaner makes 14 spray bottles of ready to use cleaner (at just $1.50 each)! This stuff is safe, more affordable, and just as (if not more effective) than your store-bought cleaner. Plus it smells amazing! You can purchase the Thieves Household Cleaner separately as a Wholesale Member or Retail Customer. If you’re really wanting to decrease a whole bunch of the toxic junk in one easy sweep though, you may want to consider joining Young Living as a Wholesale Member with the Thieves Premium Starter Kit! I posted details about it below. :)

PREMIUM STARTER KIT ORDER PAGE - FOR MEMBERS

The Thieves Premium Starter Kit is a major bargain and includes 2 Thieves Household Cleaners, 2 Thieves Waterless Purifiers, 2 Thieves Sprays, 2 Thieves Hand Soaps with a pump, 1 Thieves Toothpaste, 1 Thieves Mouthwash, a 15-ml bottle of Thieves essential oil, and a 5-ml bottle of Stress Away essential oil (plus a roller fitment and samples)! Plus when you purchase the Premium Starter Kit, you’ll automatically become a Wholesale Member, which means that you’ll save 24% whenever you sign in and order more oils or oil infused products at www.youngliving.com!

My Best Young Living Welcome Gift Yet!

My Best Young Living Welcome Gift Yet

Weeeeee!!! I’m so excited because I recently put together a brand new welcome gift for anyone who joins Young Living with the Premium Starter Kit through my blog. I’ve offered several welcome gifts throughout the years, but this is by far my absolute favorite! Here’s what my new welcome gift includes…

  • A Simplified Essential Oil Desk Reference – this book so colorful, simple to navigate, and easy to understand! I own several reference guides, but this is my new fave! :)
  • Quick reference sheet – this sheet includes the most important oiling info and will also help you navigate your reference book.
  • Three 10-ml roller bottles – use these roller bottles to pre-dilute/mix together the essential oils you use the most.
  • One dropper bottle containing avocado oil and another dropper bottle containing fractionated coconut oil – use these carrier oils to dilute your essential oils when applying them to the skin.
  • 10 clear vegetable capsules – use these capsules as one way to take some of your essential oils as a dietary supplement.
  • As always, you will also receive a membership to our online Oil Moxie resources and my essential oils e-course!

I was able to snatch up 20 reference books during a great online sale. Get your kit and welcome gift fast – I’m hoping these books go back on sale, but if they don’t, this new welcome gift will only be temporary! :) I currently have 17 books left (and that amount won’t last me very long)!

Get to Know Your Premium Starter Kit

If you are brand new to essential oils, THIS IS THE PERFECT POST FOR YOU! Below is a bunch of how-to information on using the essential oils in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit (this kit is the best way to begin using essential oils) as well as a few related oily tidbits. Learn one day at a time for the next 14 days or all at once. Happy learning! :)

14 Day Challenge Overview

Young Living recently released a new line of essential oils called Vitality. Each of the 27 Vitality oils are specifically branded and labeled for dietary use (internal consumption). Technically speaking, the Vitality oils are no different from their regular counter part. For example, Lemon and Lemon Vitality is the exact same oil. The difference, however, is that a regular bottle of Lemon now includes topical and aromatic usage directions, while a bottle of Lemon Vitality includes dietary supplement usage directions. Same oil, three different ways to use it!

Young Living Labels

The Premium Starter Kit comes with your choice of diffuser and 11 bottles of essential oil. Six of the essential oils (Frankincense, RC, Purification, Lavender, PanAway, and Stress Away) are labeled for topical/aromatic use, while the other five (Peppermint, Lemon, Copaiba, Thieves, and DiGize) are the Vitality essential oils and are labeled for dietary use. *Remember that other than their label, the Vitality essential oils are the exact same oil as their regular counter part. The Premium Starter Kit showcases both regular and Vitality essential oils to show you the versatility of Young Living essential oils! :)

Premium Starter Kit with Vitality

The Young Living Premium Starter Kit includes a 5-ml bottle of Peppermint Vitality. Below are a few easy ways you can incorporate Peppermint into your life! *Remember that other than their label, the Vitality essential oils are the exact same oil as their regular counter part.

When you purchase a Young Living Premium Starter Kit, you become a no strings attached Wholesale Member (you will save 24% every time you order from Young Living). You DO NOT have to order product regularly, but let’s be honest… The oily lifestyle rocks and you may just want to order oils regularly and/or start replacing your household/body care products with Young Living’s safe and all-natural alternatives. When this happens, you’ll want to consider signing up for Essential Rewards (ER). If you are ordering at least $50 worth of products a month (or averaging that over a few months) and aren’t on ER, you are missing out on earning FREE PRODUCT! :) Below is a brief overview of ER. You can also also watch THIS VIDEO to learn more.

Essential Rewards

If you have questions about the dangers associated with some of the store-bought products you may be using and why you may want to consider switching to Young Living’s all-natural home/body care products and nutritional supplements, please don’t hesitate to ask me! Additionally, while Wholesale Members are NEVER required to “sell” (or refer others) to Young Living, if you would like to join me in the oily lifestyle and learn more about this opportunity, be sure to let me know so I can support you on this journey!

Young Living Enrollment Voucher (aka: Coupon Code) FAQ

Young Living Enrollment Voucher (aka: Coupon Code) FAQ

I’ve had so many hits on my blog for a Young Living enrollment voucher (aka: coupon code) that I figured I better write a blog post about it. So, here we go! :)

Q. What is an enrollment voucher?

A. An enrollment voucher is a coupon code that a distributor can give to a new member to save $20 on the purchase of their Premium Starter Kit.

Q. Are there any enrollment vouchers currently available?

A. Young Living only occasionally offers enrollment vouchers to its distributors. As of 6/9/17, I do not have any enrollment vouchers to give to new members (nobody has any vouchers). 

Q. How do distributors get enrollment vouchers to give to new members?

A. It is VERY RARE for a distributor to have an enrollment voucher to give to a new member. Distributors only receive one enrollment voucher to give to a new member on months Young Living offers them as part of their monthly promotion for a $250 or a $300 purchase.

Q. Should I wait for an enrollment voucher to purchase my Premium Starter Kit?

A. Enrollment vouchers are so few and far between (I’ve never actually received one to give to someone) that I would not wait to purchase your Premium Starter Kit. Because enrollment vouchers are so scarce, I’ve chosen to provide my new members with a gift that will teach you how to use your oils. :) While you won’t save money on your Premium Starter Kit, you will get more for your money when you purchase from me. :)

I’m ending 2015 with a bang and starting the New Year off right, with a BRAND NEW GIFT for people who purchase the Premium Starter Kit from me and join my oily community – THIS IS THE BEST GIFT I’VE EVER GIVEN!! Eeek!!! I’m so stinkin’ excited!!! My gift includes a bunch of oily recipes cards (for every oil in the Premium Starter Kit) AND all the labels, usage directions, containers, and ingredients to go with them. PLUS, you’ll get my 14 day e-course AND access to our Oil Moxie resources for online support. You’ll know how to fully utilize your Premium Starter Kit the minute it arrives! :)
