I know the organic, non-GMO, all natural stuff seems more expensive, but I will assure you this….YOU are important to invest in!!
Health truly is WEALTH!
I actually struggled majorly with the expense difference at first. After a short time I began to realize how I was not only benefiting my body more, but was shocked by how many products I was using that I truly didn't even need!
Soon the amount of daily products I was using became less and less, I was down to the essentials. My rashes, acne, allergies and pain became less and less….that meant less medication to cover up the symptoms. This was worth every single penny I spent!
Why are the natural, organic products more? because there is more time and commitment put into where that ingredient was grown and extracted from, there is a price that comes with that. That price may be a few more dollars but in the end your health is 100% worth that few bucks!
If you are struggling with buying natural products because of the expense then there are still options for you. Do not let the price tag stop you from taking control of your health.
I suggest you start small and sacrifice something. That means you may have to think about something you are buying that may not benefit your body and health then invest that into something that will benefit you. This is a learning process of making more mindful decisions and will get easier over time. Do this for a short while and ask yourself how important it is to you.
There are also many DIY resources all over the web....I encourage you to make it yourself if you can. That is always the best way!
Castile soap is seriously amazing. You can use that stuff for washing clothes, dishes, floors, hair, body and hand soap. One HUGE bottle ranges from $10-20 and can literally last months because it can (and should) be diluted. I started with Castile soap….You can never go wrong there. Add in some Essential Oils and you will smell fantastic without the synthetics!
When choosing Essential Oils do not use the synthetic kind, they can cause way more harm than good. Essential Oils are popping up all over the shelves of every store, and they are NOT made the same. Companies can say 100% pure, when in fact there is only 1 drop of 100% pure essential oil….it is incredibly unregulated. I choose doTERRA for topical skin care therapeutic use and NOW brand for aromatic cleaning use. Both are third party tested, cold press, and steam distilled.
Check out these shocking articles below about the toxic overload women have been experiencing:
“12.2 million adults – one of every 13 women and one of every 23 men – are exposed to ingredients that are known or probable human carcinogens every day through their use of personal care products.”
“Almost 13,000 chemicals are used in cosmetics, and only about 10 percent have been evaluated for safety.”
“The average US woman uses 12 personal care products and/or cosmetics a day, containing 168 different chemicals, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG).”
