Personal Care Makeover With Essential Oils: Say No! To These Toxic Products!
There are toxins lurking in your skin care hair care, toothpaste, mouthwash, perfumes and other personal care products. Here’s a list of common culprits and a safe alternative to replace them. It’s time for a makeover!
Though the debate is still going about whether or not fluoride in toothpaste is more harmful than not, there are more studies about the harmful ingredient, triclosan found in many toothpastes. Studies have increasingly linked triclosan (and its chemical cousin triclocarban), to a range of adverse health and environmental effects from skin irritation, endocrine disruption, bacterial and compounded antibiotic resistance, to the contamination of water and its negative impact on fragile aquatic ecosystems.
Want a safe and natural toothpaste and mouthwash? Thieves toothpaste and oral care products by YL are all-natural and made with pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils, including the cleansing and protective benefits of Thieves® essential oil blend. The Thieves line of products are safe and effective while promoting healthy gums, strong teeth, and a confident smile. These products are the optimal choice for health-minded consumers.
Antibacterial Soaps & Body Washes
Similar to toothpaste, many soaps contain triclosan. When used on the skin, products that contain triclosan can lead to impaired muscle function and alter the body’s hormones. According to the FDA, long-term exposure to some triclosan “could pose health risks, such as bacterial resistance”.
Instead of using products with triclosan, look for safer products that do not contain the ingredient. Essential oils are great at helping the body fight bacteria naturally, which is why using skin/body care products made with 100% oils just makes sense. Check out YL’s skin and body care products for safer body wash, soaps, moisturizers and more, including all natural deodorants.
Shampoos & Conditioners
Check your hair care products for a chemical called “sodium laureth (or lauryl) sulfate”. This chemical has a toxic effect on the liver, reproductive organs, nervous system, endocrine system, skin, eyes and even blood cells.
For a safer, more natural hair care, choose a product that has only simple ingredients that you can pronounce. While there are many products that contain this type of chemical, there are now more products on the market that do not use toxic chemicals. The essential oil-based, Lavender and Copaiba shampoos and conditioners by YL are great choices to promote healthier hair and scalp without the use of harsh chemicals.
Make Up & Skin Care
This is a biggie. I’m sure you’ve seen the different articles and stories about how much “crap” is in skin care. The biggest thing to look for are products that contain different types of parabens, including methyl, ethly, propyl and isobutyl parabens. Parabens are toxic to the body and may mimic estrogen which can lead to hormonal problems in both men and women.
For natural make up and skin care, choose products that do not contain parabens, or other synthetic ingredients. Young Living has a wonderful line of skin care products that have been researched and developed to be safe and gentle on the skin as well as deliver essential oil benefits of tightening the appearance of the skin and improving skin tone.

Perfumes & Colognes
Synthetic fragrances contain a chemical known as toluene, a product naturally occurring in crude oil and used in making gasoline. The problem with toluene is it causes breathing problems, skin sensitivities and may cause nausea. Toluene has also been linked to blood and immune system toxicity.
For a natural alternative, use essential oils that are 100% pure, contain no synthetic ingredients and no added fillers. Essential oils like Rose, Lavender, Jasmine, Patchouli, as well as YL blends such as Joy and Highest Potential, make wonderful natural fragrances.
