March has us seeing green! Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day this month, or just counting down the days to spring break, you too can go green this month. We've all seen "green" products on our grocer's shelves, but what does it really mean to be green? For the Myrrhmaids, being green is referring to pursuing and living a toxin-free lifestyle. It's hard to trust those companies with a fancy "Green" on their bottles, but we DO trust Young Living! With their open door policy and seed to seal promise, we can turn to these essential oil products confidently. Did you know your EO's can replace those chemical laden products? With the effectiveness of just one drop of EO, you'll be saving money too!
Go green this month! Choose an area in your home or lifestyle to live a little more toxin-free.
-Attack those cleaning products by making your own cleaners and sprays with EO's
-What about those lotions and creams we use on our kids & pets? Explore some of YL's animal and kids line products.
-We encourage you and your family to eat green too! Make a trip to the farmers market a new family tradition.
Did you know?
Going "toxin free" may sound a little wishy-washy, especially if you're unaware as to why you should be more toxin free. Be sure and watch this video posted below to learn more about some of the toxins that we're introduced to everyday!
One of the great things about Young Living's essential oils is they can help replace most, if not all, the toxic products in your home! From making your own floor cleaner, fabric softener, to a DIY facial moisturizer, the possibilities are endless.
This Myrrhmaid shares her journey to being more toxin-free.
"I was always intrigued by the idea of a toxin-free lifestyle, but never knew where to start. I was always so overwhelmed by these rules and long DIY recipes. I am terrible at making my own products, so I just "ignored" the chemical laden products I did use. I was then introduced to YL essential oils, and was shown how very easy it is to replace toxic products with my EO's! I was so excited! I have saved so much money, time and effort. Being toxin-free is still a day-to-day choice and a work in progress, but supporting my families health makes it all worthwhile."
