It’s no secret that I love me some good all-natural products. I talk about them here on my blog, on facebook and on instagram. But it occurred to me that I never really shared MY story of why I started my journey with natural products. So, here we go!

No, I don’t think I’ve ever talked about Cancer on social media.. but here I am, trying to think of how to properly convey to you the reasons why I chose to start implementing Young Living products in my and my families life. Unfortunately, I can’t talk about that without mentioning my past with Cancer and the very real threat it poses to me. I have a strong family background when it comes to Cancer. I am aware of how to do a self breast exam, aware of seeing skin pigment changing shape and size and that I would need to report anything suspicious in these areas to my doctor. But the problem I have with that is that those are both RE-active, not PRO-active solutions. Theres so much research coming out that shows the links of the ingredient ‘FRAGRANCE’ (catch all term) to so many dangerous diseases.
Two point that I would like you to think about today.
One: The average women apply over 300 chemicals to their face and skin per day including talc, bismuth, parabens, lead, mercury, and mineral oil. These chemicals are found in a majority of makeup and skin care products, which can disrupt the endocrine system, disrupt your hormones, are highly carcinogenic, are cancer causing and have been found in tumors. TUMORS PEOPLE.
Two: According to the BCPP, when it comes to the prevention of cancer, avoiding synthetic fragrance is one of the main ways to help yourself. That’s because the dangers of synthetic scents include hormone-disrupting phthalates and synthetic musks. YES, Eureka, we have a chance to PREVENT.
HOW LONG should we be ignoring this?! 28 years was enough for me.. Ladies. There is a real way to protect yourself, your daughters and your mother here. GET THE ‘FRAGRANCE’ out of your home! Stop opening the door for these diseases and inviting them into your home! You don’t have to believe in my oils, you don’t have to buy your makeup, skincare, house cleaner etc. from me (I mean you should, but I can convince you of that another post..) but what you should do is just research it a little, then I dare you not to want to give this stuff a try.

So, you’re convinced? Here are a list of the 5 top products I suggest switching out in your home.
Skin Care (Face wash, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, lotion)
Hair Care (Shampoo & Conditioner)
Makeup (Foundation, Bronzer, Blush, Bronzer, Mascara etc.)
Household Cleaner (Glass, countertop, floor etc.)
Laundry (Detergent, stain remover & dryer sheets)
I know to some that all sounds like a lot. Because it is. which is even more scary! It doese’t need to be done over night, It took me almost 6 months to get all of our products changed out. But young living makes it super easy and rewards you with product back!
