Truth! This year I went deeper on my Spring Cleaning. I've been hanging on to things I really don't want to have in my life anymore, so here are a few ideas from a medicine cabinet makeover.
Well, that's me. :-) Just doing the best I can, like most of us are. And when I learned a few new tricks to do even better, I grabbed on with both hands. But apparently I didn't want to let go... HA!
So with each year I get better and better at cleaning up my family's personal care products and replacing them with these easy & non-toxic DIY's, but was still hanging on to all this junk. :-/ Honestly, it'll be a while before I can get rid of it ALL. But I think I'm about 65% there.
Here's a huge ugly offender. Buh-bye baby powder. Replaced! With 2 ingredients that don't cause cancer. Read it here: https://anointedbyabba.blogspot.com/2016/02/baby-powder-alternative.html
Something that was not only effective and non toxic, but also health promoting AND less expensive. Wouldn't you want to know about that?
Hexalyne glycol? Parabens?!? And not one, two or three, but FIVE kinds of SLS? FRAGRANCE? Nope, nope, nope....
We DID create something better, and then some: https://anointedbyabba.blogspot.com/2016/02/simple-diy-eye-makeup-remover.html < --- that.is.good
My friend and YL leader Tracey Campbell has been so instrumental in these changes. And she has such cute taste! I'm in love with this trash can Tracey has and wanted one too! :-) Aint it cute? You can have one too, if you want....They're currently $16.84 right here on Amazon.
I think using plants for their amazing skillz is a great idea, and I'm only recently realizing this. Ten years ago, I thought Ben Gay was what I needed for sore muscles.
A little education goes a long way!
Now I know I can make something similar with the active ingredients myself, but without all the hard to pronounce... garbage! Which is exactly where this is going. Or I can replace it with an AMAZING Young Living product, Cool Azul Pain Cream. Check out the video to see WHY this works. It really is AMAZING!
But looookie there, what does that label say about the constituents of eucalyptus, peppermint, wintergreen & thyme? Something I can't say! Lol. Mmmighty good information!
Thanks to Tina with Wellness by Design, we easily replaced this mouthwash with salt, essential oils and baking soda, while upcycling a Ningxia Red bottle to boot!! Yippee!
The active ingredient listed on this bottle of a big store brand antibacterial soap... has been found not to be active at all! (BOO!) Triclosan is not only NOT effective for killing germs, but additionally, it's been linked to several different health issues related to a disrupted endocrine system. (BOOBOO!)
Replaced! With Rosewater body wash
and Heavenly orange honey body wash
and Young Living lavender body wash,
and Young Living bath & shower gel base (which is never boring with + 5,000,000 oil combinations, I can put into a bazillion pretty packages with gajillions of my favorite skin conditioners!) We have OPTIONS, people!
I am grateful to have taken such a huge step in transforming this cabinet!
If you're doing Spring Cleaning, you might want a nice Spring diffuser recipe or two. :-)
