Do Your Best Until You Know Better. Then When You Know Better, Do Better.
I have never been very into all-natural things. To be honest, I’m probably the least crunchy person you’ll ever meet! (Crunchy, a word I’ve learned since I started using essential oils six months ago..) My mindset has always been, when it comes to most things health related, “well it seems like millions of people (usually referring to americans) are doing just fine so how bad can it be”…
But, one day in September, after my daughter’s first birthday, I was scrubbing the kitchen floor with my Method cleaner and I was thinking to myself “what in the world am I doing?!” She was still crawling at that time, and throwing pacis all around the house, and it just hit me that her prescious little hands were touching the (still wet) floor after I had sprayed the cleaner on it. And pacis, straight from chemical covered floor to her little mouth,. Nope. No thank you. I. Was. Doneeeeee.
It really sounds more dramatical than it was, but it was some sort of wake up call for me. Having a kid is a wakeup call itself, you start thinking about your habits, what you put in your body, what you put on your body, what products you use everyday in your home. About a week later I ordered my starter kit from Young Living and I haven’t looked back since. I know what the ingredients are on the ingredients list of their household cleaner. I know the ingredients in the laundry detergent we now use are all natural and safe four our an Ivy’s skin. And did I mention it’s all environmental friendly too? Helloooo. For me, there’s just no reason to not use these products. I’d never, ever go back to that Method all purpose cleaner, knowing what’s in it.
Then, I also discovered that essential oils actually work. I was s u p e r sceptic as it was a liiiiiittle bit too hippie for me, but I decided to give them a try. I made a sleepy roller for Ivy and immune rollers for both Ivy and Austin and I, and of course.. they worked.
Ivy had slept terribly for the last few months, but the first night we used a roller on her and diffused in the bedroom.. she slept through the night. And we have rolled her and diffused ever since then! She sleeps so soundly and so do we! Not to mention those immune rollers - Ivy used to get a cold every 2-3 months, but this fall and winter she haven’t gotten sick once. This is why I swear by these oils! That’s some good plant power right there!
So, now that we know better. We do better. It’s simple as that. And I feel like I really want to share this with you guys because I think everyone should be using essential oils and these plant based house cleaning products!
