How did you develop a passion for clean and toxin free living?
My blog posts are centered around my passion about Jesus and exploring the benefits of healthy living. God has placed on my heart to share my infertility journey to encourage others. I have been exploring the factors behind my infertility and learned a ton about my autoimmune disease. When I discovered that my health and wellness was more than just what I ate, I started quickly changing the products that I used every day.
My infertility journey has been challenging because my monthly cycle was not starting on its own. It required me to take a hormone for my cycle to begin and to ovulate. This caused me to have bad anxiety to take both sets of hormones. I felt like the doctors were just putting a band aid on my infertility and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
After changing to nontoxic cleaning and beauty products, my period started regulating without requiring me to take any hormones. God has used the oils and products that I have been using to help my body work naturally.
Would you say that your health has been impacted as a result of this lifestyle choice?
Yes, my health has hugely been impacted my lifestyle choice. I wouldn’t have made this change if I hadn’t been struggling with infertility and gut health issues. Our lifestyle has a huge impact on my health and wellness.
How do essential oils play a role in your daily lifestyle?
I use essential oils daily. I roll on oils morning and evening for immune support (thieves), seasonal support (combination of lavender, frankincense, lemon and peppermint), and two oils (endoflex and progessence) that help regulate your hormones naturally. Essential oils are in my skin care and my hair products. My favorite way to use oils is diffuse them instead burning candles.
What essential oils would you recommend for cleaning and sanitizing?
We use Thieves household cleaner and the hand soap throughout our home.
The thieves household cleaner is a staple for cleaning in our home and there are zillions of different ways to use it. It smells lovely! It is nontoxic which is very important for your overall wellness. You can use one product for everything. Did I mention one bottle can last 45 spray bottles? It saves you money! Thieves hand purifier kills 99.9 % of germs and is non-toxic. Just like any hand sanitizer, I recommend using the purifier several times before washing your hands with soap and water. We use thieves foaming soap and lemon luscious hand foaming soap in our kitchen and in our bathrooms
What other “must haves” would you recommend specifically for the cold/flu season?
All Thieves Products: Hand Purifier, Household Cleaner, Chest Rub, Cough Drops, and Oil.
