Is Your Laundry Routine Hazardous to YOUR Health

When you think of pollution, you probably think of outdoor pollution, right? You know, the kind that is a by-product of vehicle emissions or industrial manufacturing. The kind that produces a heavy layer of smog in cities that fills the air with toxic fumes and chemicals. When I think of pollution one particular day comes to mind. Back in the 1970’s I went to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, and remember a smog alert being in effect that day. There was a dirty layer of smog hanging in the air. It hung there all day and into the night which turned the brightly lit nighttime sky orange. I kept thinking to myself how much smog there must be in the air for it to do that. It was not a pretty sight. Fortunately, since then the Federal government, along with state and local communities have put laws and policies in place … Continue reading

Dangers of Synthetic Fragrances

Most people are totally unaware of the dangers that synthetic fragrances pose to our health or how many times we’re exposed to them on a daily basis. Chemical fragrance is really nothing more than a conglomeration of man-made chemicals, many of them very toxic and found to cause many health problems including cancer. Fragrance is found in all kinds of everyday products… scented candles, air fresheners (both plug-in and spray cans), hand sanitizers, laundry detergent, fabric softeners, dryer sheets, household cleaning products, personal care products to include shampoos, deodorant, body washes, and cosmetics. Even in your favorite perfumes and colognes. The list literally goes on and on. If a product has a fragrance chances are its from a toxic soup of chemicals. We are constantly exposed to them and they can be found literally everywhere- in our homes, cars, schools, office buildings, stores, malls, etc. In fact, it’s hard to … Continue reading

Choosing the Best Carrier Oils for Your Skin Type

  When mixing a carrier oil with essential oils meant for topical use, depending on what you’re using it for, you’ll want to give some thought into choosing the best carrier oils for your skin type for best results and absorption. It’s fun to create our own creams and lotions, and doing so is a wonderful way to individualize them for our own skin type and personal use, or to make gifts for others, while avoiding all the harmful chemicals found in manufactured items. Your skin is like a great big sponge and absorbs EVERYTHING that you put on it, or emmerse yourself in. I love making my own products as it allows me to know exactly what’s going onto, and into my body. During the winter, when skin can get dry, making my own body butter makes a huge diffence in my skin and allows me to customize it … Continue reading

Making Healthy Choices- DIY Electric Dishwasher Detergent

Yesterday I was inspired by my friend Leah, a fellow oiler and Heaven Scent Team Member, and after hearing of her success with her homemade DIY electric dishwasher powder I decided it was finally time for me make the switch from store bought dishwasher detergent to my own homemade version. I knew that I was almost out of Cascade so the timing was perfect. She informed me that she makes her own dishwasher detergent and said regarding Cascade… “I can’t tolerate it at all! When I went to use it at my mom’s it made me seriously nauseous. I stopped using it a couple of years ago and was using the melaleuca dishwasher liquid but it is very pricey!!” I told her that one would think that any residue would be rinsed away during the rinse cycle. She replied… “Nooooo…. the heat drying usually bakes it into the dish. Put … Continue reading

Making Healthy Choices- Living Chemical Free

Lets be honest… living totally chemical free in this present day and age is next to impossible! That being said there are simple steps that we can take to greatly reduce our exposure to them and at the top of my list is getting rid of plastics. You see many of the everyday common plastics that we are using contain a potentially dangerous chemical called bisphenol-A (BPA). So you probably find yourself wondering “What in the world IS BPA and why is it so dangerous?” It’s a controversial plastic additive widely used in plastic packaging and the lining of drinks cans. It’s been shown to be a hormone disruptor and many have concerns about its potentially adverse human health effects caused by exposure to this synthetic estrogen. It has been linked to numerous issues, such as reproductive, immunity, neurological problems, and metabolic disease, along with others like cardiovascular disease, childhood … Continue reading

There are a few things I feel that are indispensable as we move into the fall and winter seasons…. I refer to them as “winter wellness must’s… as in “MUST HAVES!” or in some cases “MUST DO’s!” Some are common knowledge like being sure to cover our mouth when we sneeze or cough, and simply washing our hands with plain old soap and water more frequently while also avoiding touching our mouth, nose and eyes with our hands, as that is an easy way … Continue reading
