Taking Your Health into Your Own Hands

Did you know that the cosmetics and personal care industries in the United States are worth 532 billion dollars per year, yet they are some of the least regulated and most chemically filled industries globally? The products we use in our homes and on our skin are scientifically proven to cause the inflammation that we see as the root causes for many chronic illnesses, which is why it is up to us to be conscious consumers when it comes to the products we use.

Being a label-reading ninja sounds complicated, but it really isn’t. All it takes is baby steps to help you get past the confusing greenwashing to understand what is in your products. While chemicals are everywhere, the information and availability of healthy products are growing and can make a huge difference in your and your family’s health.

The Power of Essential Oils

It is common to feel a bit overwhelmed when getting started with essential oils. Still, a little bit of research can prove how simple essential oils can be when replacing toxic home products with natural remedies that have so many benefits. There are millions of people, families, and children who use essential oils worldwide who find great success with their healthcare needs, and you can be one of them. It is all about finding the balance and consistency that works for you and your family to move away from the toxic chemicals we are faced with every day and empower yourself to make your own health decisions.

“At that time, I was a young mom, who didn’t have a lot of time on her hands, I needed quick solutions that were easy and affordable, and essential oils came into my world, and they were just the answer for me.” (12:09)

“You really can’t take for granted the importance of being your own self-advocate and empowering yourself with that knowledge and to be open and trust your gut.” (29:00)
