Get the Toxins Out!

Investing in your health is an easy investment you can make for yourself and your family.  Reducing the toxins in your home and body is something we should all be striving to do. The tips below will help you in this effort. That was my goal when starting doTerra.  I knew I couldn't swap out all my products  all at once, but I could add a few each month, just a little at a time.  It will make a huge difference in the long run.  Here's my top four suggestions.

1.  Throw out all those chemical cleaners!! Toxic City!
DoTerra makes a great cleaning agent called On Guard Concentrate.  You can use this for just about anything.  Use it to clean bathrooms, kitchens, windows and you can replace most of those chemical cleaners under your sink today!  On Guard kills more germs than bleach!  There is also On Guard Laundry detergent.  Find out more about On Guard Concentrate and other On Guard products HERE.

2. Replace candles and artificial air fresheners with essential oil diffusers.  Of course we all like our homes to smell clean and fresh any time of the year.  Burning candles using air fresheners or scent warmers really aren't the best way to do this.  It's not too difficult to realize that what you breathe in can effect your body's health.  Make sure what you are breathing is safe and natural.  Essential oil diffusers are a great way to accomplish this with many fun diffuser recipes online and on pinterest you will have many options picking just the right recipe for your home and family. Here are some of my favorite DIFFUSERS.   I have the petal diffuser shown.

3. Moisturizers, anti-aging creams, shampoo, conditioner and other beauty products.
Think of all the things you put on your skin, when we wash our faces, wash our hair, moisturize our skin.  The toxins in our daily beauty regimen can build up over time in our bodies.I started with replacing my tooth paste with On Guard Toothpaste, then each month added a new product from the skin care products.  DoTerra products are all natural safe and effective. I use the Essential Anit-Aging Skin Care line.  Check out some HERE.

4.  We are what we eat...and drink!
Consider using cage free eggs and meat without antibiotics. I drink mineral water every day with doTerra LEMON essential oil.  It has dramatically improved the lymphedema in my leg from the chemo and cancer surgeries.   Using a water filter is a good idea.  They remove the toxins and leave the good.  Our bodies are made up mostly of water but we give little thought to what we our building our tissues and blood with.  Think again.  Drink from a stainless or glass cup and avoid plastic cups and bottles. 

These are just a few tips to detoxify your home and body.  Do a little at a time and set a goal like I did, just trying to change one thing a month.  You will be surprised where you are at in your efforts after one year. You can order any of these products and more at My DoTerra.  Have a great toxin free day!
