Caring For Yourself
Trying to carve out time for our health can be a real struggle in the world we live in. You know that taking care of your body matters, it’s what keeps you going. But between work, family, chores, activities, and responsibilities, it takes a real commitment to make time to care for yourself as well.
In recent years we are seeing more and more cases of everyday products being detrimental to our health. As someone who knows the value of your health, how can you ensure that the products you’re using are helping you stay in that place of wellness you’ve dedicated so much time to?
How can you be confident in your products without spending hours either creating them yourself or researching every artificial ingredient in the world and how to avoid them? What you need is an effective, all-natural solution that’s convenient for you. You need Young Living for an active lifestyle.
What Is Young Living
Young Living is an Essential Oils company that has really become a natural lifestyle company. They use only 100% organic (and in most cases, better than organic) products. These products are made from plant based materials and use the natural properties of these plants to support the various systems of your body. They never use plants grown with pesticides and absolutely no artificial chemicals anywhere in the process. They call this standard of integrity “Seed to Seal.”
This is so important because even some products that are marketed as pure, natural, or organic can contain some toxic items within them. You can scan your products at home or on the store shelf to see how even the ‘organic’ brands measure up using the “Think Dirty” app for your smartphone. Then learn more about the better than organic standards at Young Living as well as the process they use and the purity of their products on the website www.SeedtoSeal.com
The Dangers In Commercial Products
At this point some of you may still be wondering “But what’s wrong with the products I’ve always used? Could they really be THAT bad for me?” To answer this I’d like to take a look at one of the most common products we use when we are out playing, exercising, or just going about our lives. Sunscreen. If you’re outdoors for long periods of time you probably use sunscreen to keep your skin healthy amidst all those rays. If you have children sunscreen is especially important to protect their delicate skin.
Most people don’t realize that sunscreen typically contains ingredients that act as “penetration agents” to help the product adhere to your skin. This unfortunately means that your body more readily absorbs the toxic chemicals contained in that product. According to the EWG (environmental working group) website “many sunscreen chemicals are absorbed into the body and can be measured in blood, breast milk, and urine samples”
What about the other products we use as we’re out and active? Bug spray can keep away mosquitoes and the diseases they carry, but they can also contain DEET and Permethrin. DEET can impair cellular function in parts of your brain and has been found to be a behavior modifying chemical. Permethrin is a neurotoxin, meaning it can kill brain cells. It is also damaging to the environment as it can harm cats, bees, and all forms of aquatic life. These are just some of the products you may be reaching for before you go out.
There Is A Better Way
Now what if you could take all those toxic chemicals and replace them with something that is beneficial to your body instead. That’s exactly what Young Living has done. Their Mineral Sunscreen Lotion protects against UVA and UVB rays and is naturally derived from plant and mineral based ingredients.
Their Insect Repellent is clinically proven to repel mosquitoes and other tiny invaders using only 100% naturally derived, plant based ingredients. They also have Cool Azul Pain Cream which provides relief from muscle and joint aches, arthritis, strains, bruises, and sprains. Its an effective and natural alternative to medicated pain creams or “over the counter” sports gels, which use artificial ingredients and petroleum.
They carry a complete Active & Fit Kit which contains Cool Azul Sports Gel (made from organic plant based ingredients) and five essential oils that provide aromatic and topical support to help you do your best when you’re at the gym or after a long day of activity. These include Peppermint with it’s invigorating aroma that helps you wake up and get moving. R.C. to support your respiratory system and keep you breathing easy. Deep Relief with it’s soothing, cool sensation during or after a workout (or a long day). Thieves to help support your immune system and leave you with #noexcuses to not give today your all. As well as Copaiba which works with your body system to ensure they are all operating in harmony.
