Non-Toxic Bodycare

Be in control of your chemical load….

Most of us are using products that are questionable in safety…. You can test your products by using the app Think Dirty or enter ingredients into the Environmental Working Group’s site to see how your products line up. Note: Think Dirty sells products and the EWG won’t give great numbers if it’s un-tested, but they can be great at opening awareness of products… Young Living has a lot of healthier products you can switch out for your un-healthy ones…. It doesn’t have to be all at once and it doesn’t have to be Young Living! But creating less of a chemical toxin load is ideal for better health…

Press the Easy Button by trading out for YL products…

Thieves Products

Rosemary, lemon, cinnamon, and eucalyptus

Or trade out your personal care items, like shampoo, deodorant, lotions, skincare 

The easiest way to do this is to replace an un-healthy item with a less-toxic one, as you run out. Remember, toxic load is over time. If you LOVE a less healthy product, then keep it and clean up your health in other areas….

DIY Body Care with YL Essential Oils

Cedarwood oil is  contains the highest amount of sesquiterpenes. They stimulate the limbic system of the brain which helps to elevate our mood and helps us relax (overcome stress). This explains why Cedarwood is relaxing and may help with focus. It also easily crosses the blood brain so a little goes a long way.  Rosemary oil is stimulating and lavender is relaxing. The mixture is fabulous for a hair tonic!

 

Mermaid Hair Tonic:

 In a 4oz. glass spray bottle combine 30 drops each of lavender, cedarwood and rosemary with a 50/50 blend of pure witch hazel and distilled h2o. Mist onto the hair at the scalp nightly. This is AMAZING for helping hair grow. Note: hair grows from the roots. This is designed to nourish the scalp… 

Panaway, Peppermint, and Copiaiba are three oils I love to help with muscle discomfort, inflammation, and after-exercise stress.

Panaway is a blend of oils created to support ligaments and muscles. Peppermint is one of the oils in panaway, and has a cooling sensation. (That’s one of the reasons you know its a good oil.) And copiabiba is very like CBD oil, and even BETTER (more supportive) when added with others oils to create a more synergistic affect….

Roller-ball after exercise: your favorite carrier oil at a 3-5% ratio. The above three oils are great- adding lavender, orange (helps with swelling/ supports muscle strain), ravintsara, or others can be good as well!

Note: you can make the cream by hand or press the easy button by melting a salve in microwave and stirring in the oils when starting to cool….

 

Swiss Army knives of Oils…. These oils work for almost anything…

Valor:

Balances energy- placed on shoulders and bottoms of feet

Nicknamed “the chiropractor”- electrically similar to bone energy

Creates a feeling of “braveness” helps from being bullied….

There are a lot of recipes out there for amazing, homemade creams, lotions, potions, etc. The amazing benefits of the ingredients alone can be a huge added bonus, but with it comes the possibility that it won’t be the desired consistency, or that it’s too greasy, it can be a benefit to buy pre-made.

For additional DIY, there are so many amazing Pinterest essential oil recipes, youtube videos (do check out the Aromahead Youtube videos and my favorite: the Revolution oils podcasts…
