If you are a reader of The Natural Green Mom, then you know that I am a lover of all things green, natural and organic AND that I like to save money.
As part of our natural lifestyle, I’ve been using essential oils for years.
When my kids were young, I remember getting into our shower to clean it. The product I was using was one I had picked up at the grocery store.
The smell was overpowering. Dizzy and lightheaded, I stepped out of the shower and began to read the label on the back of the bottle.
Right on the label it warned the product was only to be used in a well ventilated area and cautioned against breathing in the vapors. It also warned that if I were to get it on my skin, I was to wash it off immediately.
That’s when I knew I didn’t want these kinds of toxic products in our home. There had to be a safer method of cleaning.
I started replacing all of our toxic cleaners with natural ones. That’s when I discovered the power of essential oils and started sharing my recipes for all natural cleaning products like my yoga mat cleaning spray and homemade disinfectant like Lysol.
The more I learned about essential oils, the more they became part of our home. They were no longer just for cleaning, they became about wellness.
Until recently, my essential oil purchases were made at the grocery store. I thought I was saving money.
The truth is, the FDA says the essential oils you buy at the grocery store only have to contain 5% pure ingredients to be able to be labeled 100% therapeutic grade.
Are you saving money buying the grocery store brands if all you are getting is 5% of the essential oil?
The more research I’ve done, the more convinced I’ve become that I want only the best, purest essential oils in my home.
