I have to be honest with you.

Detoxing your home YLEO

Ever since I went through that class last week on personal health care products, and the toxins that are in both those and our cleaning products, I have been avoiding the shampoo bottles in our shower. I just did not expect that after sharing all that information with my family, they too, are doing the same thing! 🙂 I will be having the same class held here over on Facebook at the end of the week—if you are interested in joining us, please click here and sign up!  We will close the class at 40 attendees.

I happen to be rather vain about my hair, although I truly try not to be. As a natural redhead, I know I am in the rare category…..and having almost waist length hair makes it even more so. So when I started to go gray in my early 20s I was heartbroken, and even went so far as to keep it really short (*and blonde) for a while. However, as I am learning and growing, I am beginning to see that there is a way to keep all this awesome hair, and keep it naturally. 🙂 Part of me cringes at the thought of going through a lot of changes to keep it healthy and strong, but then the other part of me cringes at the thought of what all those nasty chemicals are doing to my hair and body….

I know it seems like we are doing the classes a lot lately, but really, you know me, when I find something that is just amazing I have to share it with you, just as I have everything else over the years. We recently finished up the second to last class for the winter on treating colds, flu, and other illnesses, and will begin working on some awesome EO prepping classes and using EO’s for first aid classes here in the next month! I have been blessed to meet so many of you and help you with your personal issues and family’s struggles as you start your journeys for better health. I love that it is all natural, and plan on being transferred over to homemade, natural alternatives for everything by next fall. What about you? Will you join me?

We decided to slowly wean ourselves off of traditional store bought items and replace them as they run out with homemade products that work just as well, but don’t make us sick! So this post is a go-to list of a few different recipes you too can try this coming year as you seek to set up you home with new personal care items, and I will be updating with my personal views on each one throughout the year. We started with easy ones—shampoo and conditioners, and will work our way through many others as the year progresses! 🙂

Would you also consider linking your favorite in the comments? I am always looking for friend-recommended items to try, and there is no better way than just to ask what works for you! Also, as you try some, give me your feedback. 🙂 Let me know which one is your favorite…or if there is one you will NOT be trying again!

Blessings to you and yours,
