My journey of wellness start around twenty years ago when I found out about the negative effects that propylene glycol and sodium laural sulfate had on the body. These two ingredients are in our everyday products and this is what lead me to begin reading the small print on labels and questioning what we consume and lathered on our skin.
Then my kids came along, four in all, which made me all the more conscious of what their tiny bodies would come into contact with and ultimately, what toxins they were under on a daily basis.
Armed with the knowledge that such harmful chemicals in our standard cosmetic and household products, most of which are found in commercial car degreasers and brake fluid, were readily acceptable and not challenged, I began to eliminate them from our life and sought a more natural approach to health.
Asthmas and eczema became a thing of the past. Moods changed. Our immune systems were heightened.
Aromatherapy and a balanced diet gives us the best of both worlds.
Nowadays, we live a balanced lifestyle. Sure, some days we have take out meals and indulge in the finer foods available out there, but we have essential oils that can calm the tummy afterwards, and looking after our immune systems with healthy, nutritional food means more resistant to illness.
