“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” -Maya Angelou

Once I discovered and fully understood what ingredients were in the products I was using every single day and the impact this had on my health, enough was enough. I literally went around the house and threw it all in the trash. I have video proof if you don’t believe me. All it takes is a quick Google search to find how many harmful chemicals are in our everyday products. Yuck!

A great resource to use when trying to find out if a product contains harsh chemicals is the Think Dirty app. If a product scores 4 or above, you need to give it a second look and see if it’s really worth keeping around. You’ll be shocked at what you find (i.e. Mrs Meyers. Not as clean as you think…).

I hopped on IG and went through our house throwing away all of the products that contained these chemicals. My Tide detergent, dryer sheets, my fragrance filled wall plug-ins, air fresheners. We’re talking trash bags full. So freeing.

One of the easiest things to ditch right from the beginning is dryer sheets. Get some wool dryer balls, drop some lavender on them, and you’re good to go. (NOTE: when I talk about essential oils on here, I am only referencing Young Living Essential Oils. They are the only oils I trust. Oils you buy at the store are filled with fillers and synthetics and that’s no good.)

You know how you have candles or wall plug-ins in every room? Why not replace them with a diffuser?! So cute & so cost effective.

Ya’ll, I was a skeptic in the beginning, FOR SURE. I’m a nurse. Modern medicine was the only way. But there was one thing specifically that turned my life upside down. I struggled with stomach issues for years. Suffered in silence (sometimes not so silent). I’m sure my friends and boyfriend (now husband) were so over it. Always bloated. Fetal position. Horrible stomach pains.

Then I discovered DiGize. Relief from all the issues I just mentioned within minutes. I was SOLD. If this worked, there’s no telling what else these oils could do.

I’ve now been using oils for just about 4 years but it wasn’t until January 2018 that I went all in with the lifestyle that comes along with oils. The research is out there and the more I learned, the more I knew things needed to change.

Here’s a little list I came up with of the things I no longer have to buy at the store because I have found safe alternatives through Young Living (and also earn 25% back on my monthly purchases through Essential Rewards #score). When you’re ready to get started, click here! Let’s do this thang!
