Benefits of Using Essential Oils verses other forms of Fragrance:

The term fragrance on a product can house up to 3,000 (yes, that says three thousand!!) toxic synthetic ingredients hidden under that one word. The reason being is due to the Toxic Substance Control Act passed in the 1970's. This law grandfathered in over 100,000 toxic ingredients without any safety testing. (Fragrance was grandfathered in as well, because of "trade secret" ingredients). And what was safety tested wasn't marked toxic unless more than 50% of the animals they tested it on actually died. Nevermind if they experienced any other symptoms. Do you want to take that risk? I sure don't! Especially with my kiddos!

This led me to do a little research what kinds of ingredients were in my products. I was totally surprised at what I found! If you're curious what to look for when going through your home and flipping over labels, download our Ditch & Switch Guide for some helpful tips!

Also, a great documentary to watch is Stink, which breaks down the discovery that some products on American store shelves are not safe, by design.

A little fun facts about essential oils:

Young Living Essential Oils are 70-90 times more concentrated than the plant it came from.

The human body contains 100 trillion cells. One drop of essential oil contains 40 MILLION TRILLION molecules. This means that one drop of an essential oil can cover every cell in the human body with 40 million molecules!!
