Let’s talk about ENVIRONMENTAL health. After all, it's not just about what you put in your mouth, our thoughts or moving your body that impacts on your gut health, hormone production, mood, sleep, energy and overall health. What you FEED your skin (this includes deodorant, cleanser, toner, moisturiser, shampoo, conditioner, body wash etc) is absorbed through the skin and ends up in the blood stream and travels around the body. We don't want to be exposing ourselves, our children, our grandchildren and even our pets to lot of the toxic chemicals that are hidden in our home.
Have you ever noticed the word 'fragrance' on the back of bottles? That word can literally mean a few and up to HUNDREDS of chemicals. On the back of most bottles of laundry detergent, skin care, body wash, baby products and cosmetics you'll see this word (you'll often see it on product posing as 'natural' or 'green living'). Fragrance is code for phthalates, a highly toxic substance. Phthalates are used to help the chemicals get through the skin and increases absorption. Manufacturers are not required by law to disclose any ingredients on the label, including fragrances, in the bottles of cleaning products, air fresheners, hygiene products or cosmetics. Scary, right?
Phthalates have been linked to:
Weight gain and obesity
Hormone Imbalances & Fertility Issues including:
antiandrogenic effects (blocks testosterone)
reduced sperm count
increased damage to sperm DNA!
How to switch to natural products at home?

Not only does is smell spectacular but it's also high in linalool (also found in Lavender), which is known for it's calming and relaxation properties. It's useful for feelings of overwhelm and stress. Learn more about Magnolia here
2. Natural Deodorant
This natural deodorant actually works. Here's some over-sharing; I'm a sweater. For YEARS I've tried natural deodorants and didn't have much luck until I met this guy. It also contains doTERRA's Balance Essential Oil
3. Natural Whitening Toothpaste
Free of all the common nasties. Made with the On Guard - immune supportive oil, so the Clove and Cinnamon taste is there in the background. My two-year old LOVES it, so it's a good family favourite
4. OnGuard Cleaner Concentrate
Your new safe and effective staple cleaning product. You can use it to clean the bench tops, clean the bathroom and toilet, mop the floor etc. Each 355ml bottle contains a 5ml bottle of doTERRA's OnGuard, which includes the following essential oils: Clove, Cinnamon, Wild Orange, Rosemary and Eucalyptus.
