Reduce Toxic Load

I grew up in a product-junkie household. It seemed my mom, a cosmetologist, had every professional salon product available at the time. My friends loved looking in our cupboards and testing different things on their hair and skin. 

Like many American households, we also had numerous cleaning products, candles, and air fresheners, tons of lawn chemicals in the garage, and gave no consideration to other sources of toxicity. 

It wasn't until I was in my late twenties that I began considering reducing my exposure to toxicity. An author and radio host I listened to went through a horrific ordeal with toxic mold in his family's home. Once they were on the road to recovery, he and his wife began to use his show once a week to educate listeners on the steps they were taking to detox and live better. 

At the time, their advice looked like deprivation to me. No candles? No great smelling lotion? No fabric softener? How sad. 

It wasn't long after that I was introduced to essential oils. I quickly learned to employ these beautiful tools to transform our household cleaning and my beauty routine without any feeling of deprivation. We used them for everything from pest control to pesto. Not only were they safer, at a few pennies per drop, they were also less expensive and more effective! 

Our body is beautifully designed to eliminate toxicity, but unfortunately, our modern lifestyles provide a greater toxic load then they can handle. Have you transitioned your household yet? What are some areas in which you still use toxic chemicals?

DIY Hair Care

’m not one to wear perfumes, but I have been pleasantly surprised with how wonderful these hair products have smelled. Maybe I’m just allowing it because of the results I have seen, who knows?  My favorite two recipes are the Dry Shampoo and the Beach Wave Salt Spray. I used to buy dry shampoo from the store and my husband would run away every time I used it because of the smell I guess? Thankfully, my get-ready time is not so scary anymore with dōTERRA’s recipe. It works just as well as the store brand and it smells a whole lot better! The Beach Wave Salt Spray it gave my hair’s naturally lame waves more body and makes me feel like I just came from the beach, which is hard to do living in Provo, Utah. I highly suggest you give some of them a try if you haven’t already!

DIY Razor Relief

Helichrysum Oil

 

Known as one of the best essential oils for skin, Helichrysum oil holds rejuvenating benefits that can help to promote a healthy-looking complexion. With chemical components that can help improve the appearance of skin, Helichrysum oil is a smart addition to any skin care regimen. One of the greatest benefits of Helichrysum oil is that it provides a safe, natural way to improve your skin. So many commercial cleansers and moisturizers on the market contain harmful toxins, but using a pure essential oil like Helichrysum to improve the skin allows you to keep your skin clean and protected.

If you want some ideas that will help you to utilize the skin-perfecting benefits of Helichrysum oil, check out this essential oil spotlight on the doTERRA product blog: https://doterra.com/US/en/blog/spotlight-helichrysum-oil

Melaleuca (Tea Tree) in Your Tool Kit

Melaleuca, also known as Tea Tree oil, is one of my favorite doTERRA essential oils because it is versatile and has range of applications. What I love most about Melaleuca is its benefits for the skin and hair. I often put a drop or two of Melaleuca into my moisturizer, or even directly on my face after washing to reap the benefits of this purifying, toning essential oil. I also like to place a few drops of Melaleuca in my shampoo, or give myself a scalp massage with Melaleuca and Fractionated Coconut Oil. 

To learn more about Melaleuca oil, how to use it, where it comes from, the chemistry of the oil, and more, check out this article on the doTERRA product blog: Tea Tree Oil Uses and Benefits: Essential Oil Spotlight.
