What is green chemistry?
:
"Green chemistry is the design of chemical products that reduce/eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances." In simpler terms, it allows us to innovate with ingredients and create products that are increasingly conscious of both human health and the environment 🌍.
:
For example our best-selling Countermatch Collection (👆) uses #biomimicry, which takes inspiration from #nature to solve skincare needs. Every ingredient in the line delivers multiple functional benefits to the skin (ie. Plum oil maintains moisture while naturally scenting the products.)
:
Thankfully Beautycounter is not alone in our push for green chemistry. Companies large and small are facing the same #sourcing challenges while fielding increasing consumer demand for ingredients that reduce environmental impacts (way to go guys!)

Every time we swipe that card to buy a product we UNCONSCIOUSLY say “I BELIEVE IN YOU. I BELIEVE IN YOUR PRODUCT”
.
Sometimes though it comes from a need of instant gratification and we don’t really think it through. Is this company looking out for me and their employees? Is this company sustainable and good for people AND the planet?
.
“I never make a product for a profit. I make it for a purpose.” Dr. Gary Young, Founder of Young Living and Father of Essential Oils
.
This company owns their own farms and grows the plants where they are originated and thrive. They pay the employees above average salaries and give back to local communities. The YL Foundation makes conscious efforts daily to make this world a better place. Some of the wonderful projects they are working on right now:
.
Ecuador Earthquake Relief - they sent emergency supplies, including Young Living essential oils, and a relief team to towns near the epicenter of the earthquake, where people have received little to no aid and are not easily accessible. .
Rebuilt Nepal - YL rebuilds a village for many that lost their home during the earthquake .
The Young Living Academy started in 2009 in Chongon, Ecuador, home to our "Sponsor a child" program. The Young Living Academy began with 83 students and now holds 297 children in grades K-12.
.
In addition to a top-quality curriculum, the academy allows students to become involved in:
Music classes
Drama and dance clubs
Soccer, baseball, and volleyball clubs
Computer and English classes
Hands-on agricultural education and experiences
.
- Maestral Orphanage Croatia
Providing support to children and young adults who have been removed from their families due to neglect, abuse, or other issues, it is currently the only orphanage of its kind in the area.
.
- Sole Hope in Uganda
offers hope, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, employment, and medical relief. .
- African Hearts is a rescue program for children living in the slums and streets of Kampala, Uganda. Either orphaned or abandoned by their parents due to poverty, these children are without food, shelter, and have very little clothing.

there’s a huge connection between getting sick and the amount of toxins you’re surrounding yourself with. .
did you know chemicals and fragrances lower your immune system making you more prone to catching the crud!? (get outa here holiday death candles 🙅🏼‍♀️☠️🙅🏼‍♀️)
.
I believe that’s a huge reason why everyone is constantly sick in the fall time, bc fake fragrances abound and loads of toxic cleaners come out!
.
if you want to try somethin toxic free, smells incredible (cinnamon/lemony) and works insanely well, i’ll send you a packet of thieves cleaner for $5!
.
1. dump this into a spray bottle (8-16oz is cool)
2. top off with water
3. have a whole bottle of powerful plant based cleaner for the entire fall season (depending on how much you clean 😜)
ps. these make great gifts/stocking stuffers!
.
only offering until tomorrow 11/17 at midnight!

I just met a woman who has lived in my neighborhood for over 46 years. She told me that life has changed a lot, especially for moms and babies. Back in the day her mom stayed at home while her dad worked. Her mom didn’t even go out to get groceries because they had someone that helped do that. She literally stayed home all of the time. She said she thinks babies are smarter today because mothers are educated and working and get out to see the world. I will leave that up to you to decide if you agree.

She called me a young mom - what a compliment with how tired I feel these days!
In my 4 1/2 short years as a mother I have learned a few things about myself:
I get ‘cabin fever’ if I stay inside, so I need to get out of the house every day.
Reading, working and learning remind me that I am a capable adult.
Exercise saves my sanity.
Always assuming that my plans or expectations will change and having a Plan B on board makes my days more enjoyable.

Mamas, what little gems of advice would you tell your pre-Mom self?

can your business fit in a basket? 🙈hehe mine can!
.
.
.
our paychecks were posted today...and let’s just say, all.the.tears. .
.
last month’s paycheck, i out-earned my husband (who has his masters and nearly 5 years of teaching experience, here in Alaska) all because of a $160 starter kit. who can say that the start up cost of their business was less than $200?! crazy. and to know this is just the beginning—this kit will allow me to pursue my dream of being a stay at home mama & someday will bring my husband home full time, too. God has orchestrated this entire opportunity for us & he gets all the glory. #blessedtobeablessing

I had no idea when I got my starter kit that Young Living had so many amazing plant based products! I love that I can feel good about using these on and around my family. My kids have very sensitive skin so I have to be very careful about the products I use & the Thieves laundry soaps is one of our faves! Another bonus, I earn 20% back on what I buy 😳 (Target only gives me 5%) and I get FREE oils every month! 🤗 Yessss please!

🤔 What you think? 💭 #knowbetterdobetter #eats #meals #healthy

I did a magic trick today😉. I turned one bottle of Thieves Laundry soap into 3!!! Young Living’s laundry soap is so concentrated that I dilute it. I will get more than 70 loads of laundry with each bottle. Score!! #frugalwife #cleanliving .

A lot of people don’t realize that Young Living is SO much more than oils.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From supplements to cleaning products to skincare to makeup, it’s basically a one-stop shop.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If they had the Target Dollar Spot, I’d basically never need another store again 😂

One of the most common questions I get is sooooo how warm is the coat?? This one's for you! 💕💕 Kali R. from Alaska
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This coat is perfect for my Alaskan baby. It's so much easier to ger her in and out of the car without having to worry about her getting cold.
We got a 6/9 month coat because it was the smallest available and it's definitely too big for my 5 month old baby, but its not so big it compromises safety and the sleeves roll up easily.
I'll definitely be buying one for her every winter." Get yours here: www.bucklemecoats.com
