New addition to the Premium Starter Kit

A little over 12 months ago I purchased a premium starter kit from Young Living after learning about toxic chemicals in my home and wanting to remove them for the benefit of not only myself but my family. I knew very little about essential oils or how to use them and I would have to credit Laura trotter and her online Home detox bootcamp for giving me the start I needed to remove some nasty products from my home. I am a firm believer in the fact that you need to educate yourself and work out what works for you. Prevention is always better than cure.

Who ever wanted to spray toxic chemicals like formaldehyde around their home? Well have a closer look at synthetic fragrance and the likelihood is that is what is happeneing. An eye opening article explains the issues of synthetic fragrance in our homes and workplaces. Years ago essential oils were used but with changes in technology and companies trying to produce fragrance for mass market at mimimum price, has lead to synthetic fragrance being widely produced. Unfortunately it is is so many places not just air fresheners. Think about toilet paper, washing powder, soaps, cleaners. So if you are looking for a way to eliminate the synthetic fragrance from your home, we need to chat! Maybe you just want to get started right away.

This is the updated premium Starter kit from Young Living, the largest essential oil company worldwide who has been producing pure essential oils for the last 20+ years. recently added is the Thieves Waterless Hand gel. Perfect for your handbag or kids school bag when they can’t get to a wash basin. Great addition when camping or other outdoor activities. You won’t find triclosan here and incase you are wondering all the ingredients are listed on the website!

Kids Toothpaste, let’s take a look

Ingredients in mainstream toothpaste are not necessarily good for you. I rarely go down the aisle of the supermarket with toothpaste but today I did to get some idea of what is in children’s toothpaste. The reason I have selected the following toothpaste is this is one I used to purchase

Here are the ingredients I took from the back of the packet and some research I have done on what the ingredients actually are

This toothpaste was recommended for 2-6 year olds

sorbitol ( maybe GM, not assessed for safety in cosmetics)

water

Hydrated silica ( safe for most people)

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (maybe derived from petroleum. can penetrate skin and accumulate in vital organs. May be associated with skin ailments, eczema, dermatitis, itching, hives, rash)

Peg-12 ( derived from petroleum, caution advised.)

cellulose Gum ( safe up to 20%)

tetrasodium pyrophosphate ( safe for most people)

sodium saccharin (artificial sweetener petroleum derived, best avoided)

Sodium Fluoride ( maybe manufactured by reacting hydrofluoric acid with sodium carbonate. Potentially hazardous to health)

Mica Dioxide

Titanium Dioxide ( produces white colour, prohibited in food for infants)

FD &C Blue no 1 (synthetic colour)

D & C yellow No. 10 ( also known as quinoline yellow, a synthetic dry produced from coal or tar sources. Used in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, but do you really want to put it in your mouth?)

 

Thankfully slowly there is more information about the benefits of incorporating essential oils into oral care. This article written by dental hygienists in Indiana is a step in the right direction with getting the information out into mainstream.

 

Kidsects Slique Toothpaste is a fluoride free toothpaste from young Living without the use of fluoride, dyes, synthetic colours, artificial flavours, or preservatives. It has a base of coconut oil, calcium carbonate and baking soda for gentle and effective cleaning. In addition it contains essential oils that promote healthy teeth.

It is possible to care for your teeth without harsh chemicals. Young Living have a range of toothpaste for the whole family. I love the aromabright range which convenitently comes in a 5 pack. The dentarome toothpastes are also great. Dentarome Ultra comes in the Thieves Premium starter kit ($259). If you are keen to overhaul your cleaning and dental routine this is the starter kit for you! You can become a memeber here and receive 24% off future purchases. Interested in trying one or two items? Send me a message and I will work be in touch

The toothpastes can even double as a deoderant. What!! absolutely, have a look at the ingredients in a natural deoderant and you will find that sodium bicarbonate and coconut oil (2 of the main ingredients in Young Living toothpastes ) are two of the main ingredients.

At the end of the day, we are all responsible for our own choices. My choice is to use a toothpaste that is free of synthetic ingredients, What is yours??
