Why have I embarked on this Young Living journey? Here is my story:
I was shocked when I found out how many toxic chemicals are in the products we use everyday. I was naive in thinking our government was protecting us, that they were making sure products were safe before they put it on the shelves of the stores. Not only was I naive, I was wrong. 😱😱
There are over 1300 substances completely banned from use in cosmetics (by the EU Cosmetics Regulation) ... By comparison, the FDA has banned 11. The United States banned only 11 of the hundreds of toxic ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be harmful to your health. This means it’s up to you to pay attention to what you buy – and what you don’t.
I started to research items on The Environmental Working Group (EWG.com). See for yourself. Look up your products. Look up ingredients in your products. Chances are that you will be as shocked as I was when I read the information.
My husband has had leukemia two times. It is the type that will return, it's only a matter of when. Each time it returns, we try to manage it. So far it takes chemotherapy. I HATE all of those chemicals going into his body , but if that's the only thing that works , then that's what we have to do . So far we have been successful. I decided to do some research to remove as many harmful chemicals from our home to give him an even better chance of it not returning for a longer amount of time.
When I found a line of products that we can use for personal care, skin care, makeup, health supplements, household cleaning, laundry, caring for babies, children, & pets (plus many other lines) that are actually healthy for us to use, I was THRILLED. The fact that I don't have to worry about these products causing issues that compromise our health (sometimes in ways that don't show up until later on), gives me peace of mind.
This makes me want to share it with others to help them with their health journey. I LOVE this stuff. When you find something you love, that works for keeping your family healthy, you want to share with others. I BELIEVE in this product & this company. That's my story & I'm sticking to it! 😊
