The holidays are coming and what is everywhere for sale?! Synthetic scented products. 😣
My home used to be one that I had every scented candle, hand soap, spray, etc for each season. My intentions were good! I wanted to have a home that was warm, inviting, smelling amazing.
The more I’ve gotten into essential oils, the more I’ve learned about how many not so great things I was exposing my family and friends to. You don’t know what you don’t know! This is NOT to make you feel like an awful person, because trust me, I’ve been there. It IS to help you be aware of a different perspective on maybe what’s contributing to your body to not functioning the way it could.
Synthetic fragrances dangers include: hormone disrupting, trigger or cause allergies, asthma, birth defects, infertility, brain disorders, etc. They are laced with cancer causing chemicals and are said to have similar effects as second hand cigarette smoke. 😷
The simple truth is that our bodies weren’t designed to take them in.
I love to diffuse doTERRAs essential oils in our home now and am beyond grateful to have that option to support our bodies. I have, throughout my own journey, finally gotten rid of all synthetic fragrances in our home. No more headaches, weird random stuffy noses, dried out hands or legs from scented soaps or lotions, and more! It’s a journey! The best thing you can do for yourself and family is to just start. 😊
Tell me about what you do in your home to create amazing natural smells!...
