Is my cleaner “clean”?

Did you know this:

According to Eco Facts ,

Women who work at home have a 54% higher death rate from cancer than those who work away from home. The 15-year study concluded it was a direct result of the much higher exposure rate to toxic chemicals in common household products!”

I don’t think she feels like that is a very good way to thank moms for all we do. I’m pretty sure slowly poisoning us is way below minimum wage.

And the truth is, if we are poisoning us, we are poisoning them too. Our babies.

What do we do? 

There are SO many options at every store promising that their products are “safe” and also do the job, but how do we really know?

We take it back to middle school science class and we make them prove it.

Here is a fantastic test that shows many common cleaners and their effectiveness. I’m highlighting an example of a label from a super popular brand, Mrs. Meyers. Their website boasts “powerful plant-derived cleaners”, but when we take a closer look, we find so much more.
So many people see the cute soap caddy and brush and believe they are getting a clean product. Sadly, this isn’t the case.

Take a look at these results.

(Original tester unknown. If it’s you: 1. thank you. 2. I’d love to give credit where it is due. 🙂 )

I’ll just tell you that I avoid the store altogether. The thing is that I’ve learned that for a product to be labeled 100% Natural in the United States, it only needs 5% natural ingredients. The other 95% can be whatever a company so chooses. cleaners

I bet you can guess which cleaner listed above I use. You guessed it… Thieves Household cleaner!

Six Common Questions about Essential Oils

As I was shopping yesterday in a local health food store, I saw two women looking over the three different brands of “essential oils” offered.
I wanted to walk right up to them and tell them the truth about those bottles and all we’ve learned in the last four years about oils, our bodies, government regulations, wellness, and more. The oils offered are directly behind the front desk and I didn’t feel it would go over well if I began to sell something to someone in another person’s retail space. I wish I could have caught them in the parking lot.

While it may seem impossible, I find that there are still so many people who have nobody they trust trying to educate them and help them with natural wellness. With so many people trying to sell anything these days, how can we know what is right for us individually? How will we know what to do?

There have been a lot of these types of questions over the last four years, and naturally, some more than others.

In today’s VLOG, I’ll go over the 6 most common questions I am asked.
