We only use Young Living products for this reason, so I’ll be sharing ditch-n-switches with them throughout this post.
The switches are simple!
The best thing about these products is that they’re concentrated.
300 drops of oil in a 15mL bottle. 16 bottles of laundry detergent in one. 29 cleaners in one!
You’ll save money and make your body stronger right away.
Every bottle you ditch for Young Living is a trade from harm to health.
What candle, detergent, or cleaner makes your lungs and immune system stronger?!
Clean Your Kitchen
The plates your food touches.
The counters and sinks and hands that need cleaned.
The oven and stove that need scrubbed.
Everything you’ve got now, even if it’s got an “eco friendly” label, is dangerous for your health.
Like your air clean up, your kitchen products dilute, too saving you lots!
The simple swaps:
Boldly Change Your Over-the-Counters
“An infectious disease specialist…Dr. Louis B. Rice, warned, ‘There are strains out there (bacteria), and they’re becoming more and more common, that are resistant to virtually every antibiotic we have.’ Antibiotics may crumble before these ‘germs on steroids,’ but essential oils do not. The multitude of chemical constituents that make up essential oils present bacteria with a puzzle that cannot be solved. The mosaic of hundreds of chemical constituents simply do not allow for bacterial resistance,” (LifeScience).
Ever wonder why that petroleum-based chest rub doesn’t actually fix your cough?
Or why your synthetic muscle rub doesn’t actually make your pain go away long-term?
I could go on forever, but the answer is: they’re not real.
They’re a fake.
Young Living’s over-the-counters and natural remedies with their pesticide-free oils has created a home for us over the last 4 years that will never be the same.
Straighten Out Your Hormones
Ladies, hear this: common doesn’t always mean normal.
PMS is not normal.
Men, hear this: your hormones matter.
What are the most damaging items in your home?
Personal care products, makeup, cleaners, and fragrances.
We slather on over 300 chemicals when we’re getting ready for the day let alone all we use the rest of the day.
CLEAN YOUR AIR: get a diffuser (I suggest the Desert Mist)
CLEAN YOUR LAUNDRY: grab the Thieves Laundry Detergent. It dilutes out to 16 bottles and you’ll get the recipe when I add you to our Facebook community.
CLEAN YOUR EVERYTHING ELSE: Thieves Household Cleaner is 29 bottles in one. You can get rid of EVERY. SINGLE. CLEANER. IN. YOUR. HOME. No, this isn’t a joke. Yes, it kills the germs. We’ve done it for 4 years. I’d not beat my head against a wall for four years if it didn’t work like a charm…hello!
SET UP A LOYALTY BOX: this will give you a % back on each monthly box you get. You’ll choose what goes in (think oils for remedies and prevention, personal care/toiletries, makeup, supplements, CBD, etc) and remember, most all dilute out to save you tons. What you can’t dilute, you can use your % back to get for free!
YOU CAN DO THIS!
Set small goals for yourself each month.
What can you swap out at the store for a Young Living product?
What can you buy organic this week instead of conventional?
Living on a budget?
You’ll be shocked by how much moneyis left over for organics when you take out pop/soda, cookies, chips, and prepackaged snacks and stop running to the pharmacy and turn to oils instead.
This will be the most rewarding gift you’ve ever given your family.
When your children are reaping the rewards as adults and teaching their children, your grandbabies, how to create a home the right way, you’ll be so very glad you read this, took action, and never looked back.
See the hazards and start making a list of what you need to ditch for a safer product as you make your way through your cabinets.
#2: Don’t Fall for a “1” or “A” Rating
This is where you take a closer look.
If it’s marked “safe,” but you zoom in on the concerns and see a line for hazards (cancer or reproductive toxicity for example), all of a sudden it’s not so safe anymore.
Switching every one of our products over to Young Living solved this problem quickly and for less than I was spending at the stores on harmful products.
I could look up YL’s products all day long ingredient by single ingredient and be okay.
Unfortunately, I have never found anything on a store shelf that would be truly toxin-free for our family.
#3: Don’t Fall for Sticker Shock
When you see Young Living’s prices, it might be hard to imagine ever paying those kinds of prices. Be careful. There’s something you can’t see.
It changes everything.
When I can dilute one bottle of YL shampoo into 9…that’s making life simpler, less expensive, and with the ingredients list, so much safer!
Other dilution possibilities (by no means anywhere near an exhaustive list but instead a small example):
Thieves Household Cleaner=27 multipurpose sprays
Foaming Hand soap=3 foaming hand soaps
Laundry Detergent=3 bottles of laundry detergent
One bottle of any 15mL essential oil is between 250 and 300 drops (i.e. I may use only a couple of drops of immune and respiratory strengthening Lemon and Peppermint to reduce fever. This saves us much more money than a couple of doses of liver-harming liquid from the store).
It’s easy to fall for the hype we see on tv and in ads all over social media, but with this, you’ll be all the wiser and ready to make some real health changes for your home.
Ready for a Change?
This lifestyle is amazing and easier than you think.
