One winter break, I worked for a company that sold all things smelly-good.
Lotions, candles, soaps.
Back then our home wasn’t complete until every sink in the house donned our favorite scent.
Now we know better.
First, CNN reported on chemicals from antibacterial soaps that had been banned.
Once that sparked our interest, we pressed on and found cancer causing chemicals lurking in soaps.
The irony isn’t lost on me.
What cleans us on the outside makes us filthy on the inside.
Is Your Soap Harming You?
The first step is to decide if what you’re using is safe or if it needs a quick tossing.
For your convenience, I’ll share some of the most common offenders below.
Here’s a quick reminder of how ewg.org rates products:
Safe In-Store Options
Below are the EWG-rated safe in-store options:
Most Trusted Source
Our family’s most trusted source is Young Living.
The best part is the 24% discount and 25% back on each purchase!
I absolutely love Thieves Hand Soap! It smells amazing and leaves our hands feeling so clean!
You can also get a refill bottle so you never run out!
This is SUPER simple!
What you’ll need:
1.) Foaming Soap Dispenser for Castile Liquid Soap (there are three in this pack)
2.) Fill the rest (slowly or it gets bubbly really fast) with purified water (we use the water from our reverse osmosis system).
Yes, that’s it! It’s that easy!
Not only that, but I love that I always have soap on hand (ha!). I can make more as we need and know that my family is safe.

With our skin being the biggest way toxins get into our bodies, it is such a relief to know that we can immensely limit our daily intake (and our children’s!) with such simple solutions.
Vote with your dollars!
We can stop companies from selling products that fill our bodies with junk. We can stop the rise of disease. We can make a difference.
My hope is that as more and more of us stop using the toxic products, we can collectively make a change.
We can make a place for our children and grandchildren where their only options are safe ones.
What a beautiful world that would be.
