Pressed from the fresh rinds of the fruit, Lemon Vitality is a delicious essential oil that has that wonderfully nostalgic taste and smell of lemon drop candy. It’s a great substitute in any recipe calling for fresh lemon juice, rind, or flavoring—without all the hassle of zesting, grating, or juicing. It’s especially good in shortbread cookies, jams, or even a glass of ice-cold water.
Lemon Vitality’s versatility in sweet and savory recipes is what makes this fruit a popular item in kitchens around the world. Use Young Living’s Lemon Vitality™ essential oil to add flavor to savory foods like fish and chicken or sweet foods like pastries and cakes. Lemon Vitality oil has a bright taste you’ll want to keep on hand for almost anything you whip up. I’m available for any essential oil question – Get in touch!
Chemicals in and on our body
In 2008, laboratory tests revealed that teenage girls were contaminated with potentially dangerous chemicals found in personal care and cosmetic products. Some of these chemicals have been labeled probable human carcinogens. Do products like hairspray, body wash, and blush contain ingredients that could actually endanger women’s health?
Skin Can Absorb Potentially Dangerous Chemicals
Your skin may seem like a protective barrier for your body; however, the skin is not a closed organ, but is like a screen, with tiny openings called pores. Products applied to the skin could potentially penetrate all layers and enter the bloodstream, in the same way medication patches applied to the skin effectively deliver drugs directly into the blood. Water absorbed by the flesh of our fingers creates a prune-like appearance when we sit in the tub too long, due to swelling of the skin. Similarly, products like sunless tanning lotions penetrate the skin to alter its color.
Destructive Ingredients in Personal Care Products
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) evaluated 20 teenage girls, ages 14-19, for exposure to harmful toxins commonly found in cosmetic products. Every girl tested positive for parabens, preservatives linked to hormone disruption, and many tested positive for phthalates, associated with reproductive problems and liver cancer in animal studies. Scientists theorized that these chemicals came from personal care and makeup products the girls used daily.
This isn’t the first study to associate chemicals in personal care products with health problems. Here are a few more examples:
• Parabens are used extensively as preservatives in moisturizer, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, shave gel, and facial cleanser. A 2002 study reported in the Natural Medicine Journal found that parabens can act like estrogen at the strength necessary to cause breast cancer cells to grow.
• Phthalates are used in nail polish, perfume, deodorant, and hairspray. They’ve been found to damage the reproductive system, kidneys, heart, and hormone function in animals. A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that women of child-bearing age have up to 20 times greater exposure to dibutyl phthalate (DBP) than men. The DBP has been linked to cancer in animal studies. Scientists speculated that cosmetics could be the source.
• Sulfates are used as foaming agents in shampoo, body wash, and facial cleanser. They can cause skin and eye irritation, and can also form carcinogenic nitrates when combined with other ingredients often found in these formulas. A study reported in the Journal of the American College of Toxicology found that sulfates could enter the body through the skin and build up in the heart, lungs, and brain. The same study also suggested that sulfates could be damaging to the immune system.
Could these ingredients and others like them really sabotage your health? More studies need to be done, but current evidence seems to indicate the possibility. What’s even more concerning is that we’re using more and more personal care products every year. According to the EWG, women and girls use an average of 12 personal care products a day. Multiply that by years or even decades, and it becomes clear how exposure to these chemicals could add up. If you used shampoo only once a week, for instance, you would experience a low exposure to these potentially dangerous parabens or sulfates.
Read Labels to Find Safer Products
Most women wouldn’t choose to go without shampooing their hair or using makeup, so how can you reduce your exposure to these chemicals? Fortunately, in response to increasing market demand, many companies are now producing safer products that contain fewer potentially toxic ingredients. Just as you read the nutrition facts and ingredient list on food products, you should check the labels of personal care products. Choose brands that don’t contain sulfates, parabens, or phthalates. Clear out the toxins in your daily routine and start enjoying cleansers and conditioners that are beneficial to your health.
I would like you to understand a little about me, I’m Grace. I’m grateful for every day because I live with a metal rod in my back. I have one thing to share with you: what we put on and in our bodies absolutely affects us long term.
When I was a young person, I was given medication for symptoms of a mystery illness. A few decades later, my bones began to crumble right inside my body. Although terrifying for me, my only option was to accept a steel rod in my back and replacements of several joints. Pain became my daily companion. Again, I was prescribed medication after medication for pain and sleep. My dosage kept increasing as my pain increased, and I soon became addicted to and controlled by my meds. My life was a horror, but the worst was when I began to lose my own self. My husband said he no longer recognized my personality, and I could not even form full sentences.
It was then that I checked myself into a hospital and began drug detox and rehab. Let me tell you, it was not pretty. But as my mind cleared, I knew that I had been saved for a purpose. A calling to tell others my story, and help them see that staying healthy in the beginning can save so much misery in the end
Praise God, my good friend, told me about Young Living.
