As a wellness coach advocating and educating others on how to live a healthier lifestyle, it only makes sense to address not only what we put IN OUR body but also what we put ON OUR BODY. Our skin is our largest organ and has the ability to absorb everything we put on it. This is a double edge sword! The remedies, products, and chemicals we put on our skin and expose ourselves to…they matter.
Essential oils have been around for thousands of years. I have experienced and seen the first hand benefits of incorporating them into my everyday routine. Whether you are suffering from a cold, headache, achy muscles, hormonal imbalances, etc. or you want to incorporate essential oils and their beneficial properties into “green & clean” household products and longevity practices…let me help educate you on how and why!
dōTERRA essential oils are CPTG, Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®, and pure. This means they are carefully harvested and extracted to allow the chemical constituents necessary to produce therapeutic results intact. You can use essential oil(s) aromatically in a diffuser, topically (transdermal), and even ingest most of them for a more systemic effect. Essential oil constituents are both small molecularly and lipid soluble. This means they can easily and quickly penetrate your cell membranes. They are very powerful antioxidants. They can neutralize free radicals that are in excess created by your environment. Many essential oil constituents have antibacterial, antifungal, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, antitumor, antiparasitic, antiviral, and antiseptic properties.
Beautycounter’s mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone! Beautycounter is a B-corp, EWG Certified, and dedicated to the education of #BetterBeauty ! Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including but not limited to asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise and are due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals—whether it’s in the shower, on our commute, while we eat lunch at a local restaurant, or when we clean our kitchens at home. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today. Many don’t have any safety data. This is particularly true of those used in the skin care and beauty industry. The FDA only bans 30 ingredients, whereas the European Union (EU) bans over 1,400 ingredients… odd right? Beautycounter developed The Never List™ and holds itself to an even higher standard than the EU. 🙂
