30 Days to a Toxin Free Life! Make a Difference Days 1-7

Happy Sunday, Friend! 

Recently I was sharing with a friend how I got started with Young Living 9 years ago. I think they were shocked to find out that I didn't always lead a healthier lifestyle. It made me remember how overwhelmed I was at the many different synthetic chemicals I was allowing in and around my body and the bodies of my family. I remember wanting to change so many things ASAP, but the cost was daunting. My friend told me to try and substitute one to three things a month, to order onYoung Living's Loyalty Program for the best pricing and to earn points back to be used on future items I wanted to try. 

Since then, I have learned about "Green Washing" and the many products I thought were clean and green, were not actually. I was angry because I was spending more for those products and they were not actually any better than what has been marketed to us over the years. Remember the Palmolive commercial with Madge the Manicurist? You're Soaking In It

My friend shared with me, so now it's my turn, as your friend, to share with you why it is important to take charge of your household and remove the risky synthetics that can make you unwell. Each week you will get an email from me describing 7 switches you can make, why it's important to think about and then make the switch if you feel it to be necessary.

Let's start with Green Washing...

I hope this challenge will help you stop putting off what you have been wanting to do in your home!
Disclaimer- I created this 30 day toxic-free challenge for my essential oil members (meaning they bought a starter kit from me or one of my members)It is a guide for those who want to replace everyday toxic items with their essential oils and essential oil infused products. Hopefully it is a great resource for you! Or for those that are curious about essential oils this post might be enlightening for you! 

The EPA reported this year, “a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities indoor air in your home to be polluted? It can range from radon to mold to improper ventilation to lead in paint, to just the fumes and fragrance from things like kitchen cleaners, bathroom cleaners, laundry soap, dishwashing detergent, air fresheners, plug ins, etc.
Products we buy to clean our homes with, is a great place to reduce the indoor air pollutants. And the things we are using to make our home “Smell good” are polluting our indoor air! 

Swap out harsh, chemical-laden products with these solutions made with naturally derived ingredients. Many of the personal care products you use daily could also have hidden chemicals or harsh dyes and fragrances. Read the labels on everything to see where you can make improvements

1- Candles

Why are candles toxic?
Anything that releases smoke decreases the air quality around it. 
Fragrance candles are the worst because of the nasty extra ingredients added. Particulate matter released from candles is so tiny that the particles can get deep into your lungs and cause respiratory problems. 
If you MUST use a candle, look for a beeswax candle without lead in the wick. However, one important point to remember: while beeswax and soy candles release fewer volatile organic compounds than paraffin candles, burning them still releases particulate matter. Because of this, you should still keep in mind that they aren’t completely free from impacting your indoor air.

Instead of lighting a candle- Diffuse essential oils! Diffusing has totally replaced candles for me. And I like diffusing SO MUCH MORE!!!! Worried you are going to miss out on the yummy fall smells? Nope. You will not. We have amazing blends that smell better than a candle and will not give you a headache, they will actually support your immune system. 

2- Dish Soap

This one came as a shock to me. There are 8 toxic chemicals that are commonly foundin your conventional dish soap. They include: Phosphates, Triclosan, SLS (sodium Lauryl sulfate/SLES (sodium laureth sulfate). Fragrance, DEA, MEA, TEA, Chlorine, Formaldehyde, Ammonia.  IN YOUR DISH SOAP!!  You eat off of that! 10 Dishwashing Products to Avoid
I personally like Thieves Dish Soap. Did you know that the label on Thieves Dish Soap says “if consumed, drink water?” No toxins here! Just plant-based and effective dish washing! This is FOOD GRADE cleaner… doesn’t that make so much sense?  Here are some tricks to get more out of your bottle:
First: put a pump on it! You will be able to better regulate the amount dispersed. You can use the pump from the hand purifier if you need one!
Second: All of Young Living products are ultra concentrated.  Try using your ONE $14 bottle of Dish Soap and divide it into thirds. Pour 2/3 of the bottle into a air tight mason jar or storage container.  Then add 1 tsp baking soda  (wonderful for cleaning), and then fill to the top with water. 

3- Plastic Food Containers, water bottles and wrap

Many plastic containers are made from chemicals such as phthalates, which can interfere with the body’s endocrine system to produce adverse developmental, reproductive and neurological effects in humans and since the plastic breaks down over time it can cause the release of these dangerous chemicals into your food.

4- DishwasHER Soap or Powder

Along the same lines as the dish soap, the dishwashing powder or liquid that we are adding to our machines can have the same toxic effects on the dishes and silverware we are eating off of! Have you ever washed your dishes and tasted the soap residue in your cups?? Yes, unfortunately soap residue does happen. Did you know some of those same chemicals left on your dishes are inhalant toxins
Some ingredients to avoid in dishwasher detergent:
+ Diethanolamine, according to the CDC, this is known to cause cancer, have moderate allergic reactions, and contribute to kidney damage.
+ Formaldehyde – the IARC states this as a know human carcinogen.
+ Phthalates- these are found in the fragrance and are not listed on the label. According to the IFRA, there are 3,059 materials that are used in fragrance. Phthalates are considered endocrine disruptors by the EWG.
+ Benzene – according to the EPA and EWG, it is linked to cancer, developmental problems, and endocrine disruption.

Young Living Option– Here is a hack to get double the amount of Dishwashing Detergent from your Thieves Dishwasher Powder...
Use 1/2 scoop Thieves powder and 1/2 scoop baking soda mixed well and add to the dishwasher. 

5- Frying Pans

Did you know that the most popular cookware are non-stick pans and the are also the most controversial? According to the Environmental Working Group, nonstick coatings can “reach 700 degrees Fahrenheit in as little as 3-5 minutes, releasing 15 toxic gases and chemicals, including two carcinogens.” There are non-stick pans that ARE non-toxic you just have to do your research. I found that a Cast Iron pan to be the most “green or non-toxic” so we use cast iron or Caraway.

6- Toothpaste

WHAT? There are TOXIC ingredients in our toothpaste? That just doesn’t seem right.  But it’s true.
Avoid- Titanium Dioxide, Triclosan, Flouride, SLS, Parabens, Abrasive ingredients, Artifical coloring, DEA, etc are all commonly found in commercial toothpastes. 
You may be thinking.. Well I need that flouride.. or is it really that bad if we aren’t swallowing it? Your mouth is lined with mucous membranes designed to help your body absorb nutrients from your food! There is a powerful mouth-body connection and it is really one of the best places to start when ditching toxins! learn more here
Young Living Option- Thieves Toothpaste is free from all of the above listed additives and is, again, plant-based and entirely nontoxic!

I have loved the new Whitening option. Thieves Whitening Toothpaste gently removes stains without damaging tooth enamel with a combination of effective and gentle ingredients one of which is calcium hydroxyapatite. This ingredient closely mimics thetooth’s enamel, making it ideal for maximum cleaning and stain removal with minimal abrasion. 
*You can add a drop of orange essential oil to naturally whiten teeth! 

7- Antiperspirants 

One of the ingredients found in a lot of deodorants is aluminum. Food and Drug Administration does require a warning label on all antiperspirants. Questions have been raised about aluminum in deodorants if they contribute to breast cancer (studies are in-conclusive). But that is enough of a reason for me to look for all natural deodorant. 
Sweat is not the enemy – it’s a healthy, necessary function to detoxify and keep our body balanced. Instead of blocking pores to prevent sweating (like an antiperspirant) with harmful chemicals (like aluminum), natural deodorant allows skin to breathe, rids the body of toxic buildup + regulates its internal temperature.
Although you will sweat when you first switch to natural deodorant (and you may even be extra sweaty as your body begins to purge itself of toxins from chemical-filled conventional deodorants), your body will normalize soon after and you’ll find you sweat even less! So the more you use it, the better it works.
  • Pit tip: If your body odor continues to linger, you may want to take a deeper look at your diet + lifestyle choices. Eliminating processed and refined foods, eating lots of leafy green vegetables and getting regular exercise can help support the detoxification process and promote balanced pits – and better B.O.!

  • Pit tip: When you allow your body to detox through sweat, you’ll be less likely to detox through your skin (aka breakouts + blemishes). Get active, move your body and make the switch to a natural deodorant that doesn’t prevent perspiration. 
Young Living Option A favorite natural deodorant are Young Living’s options. They have CinnaFresh, CitraGuard, Medow Mist and Mountain Mist Deodorant options and we have tried and like.
*I have used others and like them, but I prefer to just buy Young Living, because is infused with essential oils and I also get 20% back in reward points since I buy it on Essential Rewards! Before you buy another brand, try Young Living! And also check EWG to see the rating of a deodorant before you buy it. Native, Acure, Toms all show a 1 rating. (Schmidts gave me a bad rash)
And there you have it. The first 7 suggestions for change to a healthier you. Because YOU are the gatekeeper of your home and YOU have the ability to make a difference.

As your Healthier Lifestyle Mentor, I want to see you succeed with your lifestyle changes. But I can't help you if you don't ask questions. So remember, please reach out to me, or the person that introduced you to Young Living, if you have any questions.

In good health,

The Top 5 Products for Spring!

If it's not yet spring where you live, it will be soon! This month we are focusing on Spring Cleaning and a favorite recipe to keep the pollen side effects away!
Are the spring blooms doing battle with your sinuses? Does your chest feel a little tight these days? Do you feel like you just need a deep, deep breath? Let's start there! 

As someone who has used many OTC remedies to fight the season change in Colorado (message me if you want to hear about the time I almost divorced my husband for opening windows in Spring) this is my favorite, works like a charm and SO much faster than those over-the-counter "solutions”... not to mention it’s a whole lot safer. 

If you’re looking for ideas on what to order to get April's Gifts with Purchase, I’ve got some great spring ideas that will help you with both!

1. Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint 15ml is the “seasonal trio” and will help you as you navigate those seasonal issues – let me know if you want more info on how to use these effectively all spring long!

2. Thieves Household Cleaner! There are SO many ways you can use this to help with your spring cleaning. Pinterest is your friend for helpful recipe ideas or you can ask me!

3. Thieves Bath & Kitchen Scrub. This is the easy button for tile and more in your bathrooms and kitchen!

4. R.C. 15ml A must have for easy breathing when the season really gets a grip on your household.

5. Cool Azul Pain Cream. Better weather means working in the garden, and just being more active in general. But those muscles we haven’t been using will need a little soothing. Our pain cream is perfect for muscle and joint discomfort and pain!

I have a ton more ideas if you need them, but those should really help this spring, especially the Thieves cleaning products and the Seasonal Trio! Always a must have in our home!


Young Living has a fresh offer for all of us, existing members and new members! They’ve taken an old favorite starter bundle and freshened it up with a 3-pack of a fan favorite foaming hand soap. The “For the Love of Lemons” starter bundle is back for a limited time and now instead of one Lushious Lemon Foaming Hand Soap, we get THREE! That’s right, a diffuser, three incredible oils, and a three pack of the Lushious Lemon Foaming Hand Soap, all for a great priceand while supplies last! Oh yeah, I mentioned that this is for new and existing members, which means that we can get it through a Shop order or Loyalty Order, and new members can enroll with it on Shop or Loyalty Rewards! 

So if you know someone who wants to join us onthis oily journey and wants to dive right into a fresh, bright, spring-like bundle, this is the one! 

Curious about what’s inside? 

Diffuse the crisp, happy, citrusy aroma of Lushious Lemon essential oil blend in your Macaron Diffuser to freshen your home! The Luscious Lemon blend features bright, uplifting oils - Lemon, Lemon Myrtle, Eucalyptus, Ylang Ylang and Spearmint - in a perfect combination that brings a bit of sunshine to your day while neutralizing any unwanted odors at the same time!

Brighten up your cleaning sprees with the fresh, uplifting aroma of Jade Lemon essential oil

Infuse your day with softness by blending Vanilla oleoresin with your favorite Young Living essential oils to create your own personal fragrance. 

Lushious Lemon Foaming Hand Soap’s invigorating fragrance uplifts the spirit, while our trusted plant-based formula leaves your hands feeling soft and refreshed.

Get the For the Love of Lemons Starter Bundle while you can! I love Jade Lemon. So unique and fresh. It’s amazing in the diffuser! And who doesn't need another diffuser?

Health and wellness is on the rise. Many products are being advertised as “safe” and “all-natural”, but are they really all that safe? The packages are pretty and the labels are clever, but the more you dig, the more you find out. Formaldehyde, Phthalates, VOCs, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Ethanolamines (MEA, DEA, and TEA), Triclosan and Fragrance are just a FEW of the ingredients you want to avoid when bringing products into your home. But my oh my! Doesn’t that sound exhausting to have to read label after label, wondering if what you’re using is safe?

Well, I’ve got good news! You don’t have to. You won’t find ANY of those ingredients in Young Living products! You can trust that what you’re purchasing is truly a SAFE product. Young Living never uses any artificial dyes, harsh chemicals, or synthetic fragrances. How wonderful is that?!
And the best part… it all comes directly to your door. Easy peasy!

Keep it clean, green and healthy from kitchen to bath and everything in between with the power of Thieves. Natural cleaning options don't have to mean options that are less effective or unsafe for kids or pets. These plant-powered favorites are safe and effective for the whole house!

These products are some of our most used and are such a huge jump start on a low-tox home. This is your easy button when it comes to all natural, plant-based cleaning.

When it comes to cleaning products for our homes and families, we want to make sure we have effective but non-toxic options, and the Thieves home line from YL is our go-to for all our cleaning needs. For dishwashing (and other great cleaning!) Thieves Dish Soap is tough on the grease and grime, gentle on our hands, and has a fresh, citrus scent - it's the perfect kitchen sink companion!

Thieves Kitchen and Bath Scrub is the perfect naturally derived cleaner: tough on messes and safe for your family! You get the power of a surface scrub without all of the harmful chemical smells and residue in conventional options

Thieves Household Cleaner is the perfect, versatile go-to for all your cleaning needs for a happy, healthy home. This fan favorite includes only plant-based and naturally derived ingredients to effectively clean your home without taking synthetic shortcuts or using potentially harsh ingredients.

If you want naturally clean linens and clothes without the toxins found in conventional products, this is for you! One of the many reasons that many people turn to essential oils is to help create a naturally clean home, and the laundry room is no exception. Try some of these favorite, simple DIYs to freshen and clean your laundry with essential oils!

2 Facts and 4 Mindset Shifts for Essential Oil Users plus 3 Recipes for your Super Bowl Gathering

Hello Friends! I hope you are well!

Lately, it seems, I have been talking with a lot of people about essential oils. More than normal. Some have been using oils for years and some just started using oils. I have been sharing these facts with them and I'd like to share them with you.

1. Essential Oils are not a magic pill. They are not something that you use one time and you do not have to use them again. You cannot have the "one and done" mentality.

2. Essential oils are not going to cure you of all your ailments, make stubborn symptoms suddenly vanish, or heal away a health issue you’ve had for a really long time. BUT they can make you healthier and greatly improve the quality of your life in ways you’ve never imagined.

If you really want to experience the powerful benefits of using essential oils then you first have to practice 4 Major Mindset Shifts. Otherwise you are just blindly trading out your "Advil for peppermint essential oil," and treating your symptoms rather than the cause, and in the long run…... you won’t feel any better.

 I am a huge advocate for using natural remedies.  In fact, the last 9 years of my life and work is a living testament of how the power of plants can change our lives. 

What I live by:

Using whole plants, along with their parts and extracts, to positively impact the health and wellbeing of our minds and bodies, is truly the only way to see real transformative results in the quality of our lives.  

Here are the 4 Mindset Shifts you need in order to experience the transformative power of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy:

1️⃣ Good Health = Radiant Health
Redefine what being healthy means.  It’s not just about being free of symptoms. Being healthy means being fully conscious that our wellbeing is a tricky balancing act, and that to maintain good health we have to work at it.

Our wellbeing is complex, multi-dimensional, and constantly ebbing and flowing. A bad night’s sleep, a day without exercising can throw us out of whack. Ask yourself: what is throwing you off?  And once you identify it, reach for an essential oil to bring you back to center.
2️⃣ Aroma Heals 
Our sense of smell can positively impact our health.  Seriously. Smelling essential oils everyday, and exercising our sense of smell can make you feel better in ways you never thought possible. Essential oils are the aromatic extracts from plants and they are made up of hundreds of aromatic molecules that have been shown to trigger responses in our brain that can literally change our physiology.
3️⃣ Education Matters

If you really want to start using essential oils to positively impact the health and wellbeing of yourself and others, you must get educated.  It’s not enough to just grab a few recipes from an article you saw in an Instagram post. Essential oils are plant medicine and Aromatherapy is alternative medicine. There are many courses you can take, or if you are like me and like to pick up a book and read, there are many available on this topic.  I recommend the following titles if you want to see real results.

4️⃣ Nature has the Answer 
Incorporating more plant-based practices into our diets, skincare and mental health routines are proving to be the most effective ways to keep us healthy. The evidence based research is overwhelming, and even as we speak, chemists continue to explore what nature has to offer so that new medicines and treatments can be created; Science leans heavily on nature to find the answers.
