Did you know that some of the biggest poisons we come into contact with every day are in our homes? They are normal, everyday things like fabric softener and air freshener.
My journey started 8 years ago, when my oldest daughter was a baby. She had the most sensitive skin. We tried numerous laundry detergents, changed our cleaners, changed her diapers…we did everything we could think of!
This eventually led us down the path to natural living.
Starting out, we were the most conventional couple you could ever imagine. We ordered takeout, cooked boxed meals, and loved some of the most popular personal care products on the market. We didn’t know any better.
As I dealt with my daughter’s issues, I learned more and more about how bad our every day products really were. Not only for us, but also for the environment. Why didn’t I realize it sooner? I couldn’t clean the tub without an open window and rubber gloves. Why did I think it was okay to then set my daughter directly on that same surface for a bath?
We were spraying our counters and food prep areas with products that said “Dangerous. Not meant for human consumption.” Then, I would turn around and put our food right there. The food we would be eating.
We didn’t know any better.
I know better, now.
Since the day I was hit with that realization, I began looking further into a green lifestyle. I started with green cleaning, because that was what drove me to change. It’s a really popular place to start, because it’s a small change that can make a huge difference.
Slowly, but surely, we started replacing some of the most toxic ingredients in our home. My daughter’s skin issues cleared up, and I never looked back.
Then I heard about Young Living essential oils.
Now, we use essential oils for everything that we can. We use them for cleaning, of course. But we also use them for so many other things that I never dreamed of before. Things like:
- Calming our kids down
- Balancing our emotions
- Soothing our skin
- Washing our hair
- Boosting our immune systems
- And purifying our air

What’s even better is that it’s all delivered right to our door every single month in what we now call our “welness box.” That alone has made all the difference. I’ve found a company I trust whole-heartedly and I don’t have to buckle the kids in and lug them around a store to find it. What started out as an overhwhelming task has been made so much simpler since we discovered Young Living essential oils.
We are healthier than we’ve ever been.
It seems so simple now, but back then we truly didn’t know any better. We were surrounding ourselves with toxins and things designed to keep us from being truly well. Since making this lifestyle change, we’ve stopped needing to go to the doctor every couple of months. In fact, the girls’ pediatrician recently told me she thought we’d moved. Nope. We didn’t move. We just aren’t sick anymore.
What started out as a way to make my home smell better and get rid of toxic cleaners has truly changed our lives for the better.
