About a year ago, I began making my own deodorant/antiperspirant using baking soda, coconut oil, and essential oils for scent. Why?
Because I started to get concerned about the link between breast cancer and aluminum in most store-bought deodorants. Now, I don’t have a history of breast cancer, and I know correlation doesn’t equal causation. But I thought it couldn’t hurt to try to break away from it, anyway. And I’ve never regretted that decision.
It also made me start wondering about the other stuff I’m using on a daily basis. For example, Lysol kills germs (which is good), but it also kills spiders – I know this from experience. Do I really want my children around it that much? Um, NO!
That’s why I was so excited to find out about this online shopping club (kinda like Sam’s) from a Facebook friend that gives you access to healthier, less chemical-laden household products that can actually save you money (more on that later). And you can join for just $1 until October 31. Want to know more? Just ask! And keep an eye out for more information on this blog because I’m loving this shopping club more and more everyday.
In fact, I’m loving it so much, I had to give it a shout out on Facebook, which prompted another Facebook friend to introduce me to Norwex.
Now, I’d heard of Norwex before, but frankly I was skeptical that Norwex was as great as everyone said it was. After all, how could anything get clean with just a cloth and WATER? Still, when Crystal invited me to her house to see some of the products, I thought it couldn’t hurt to see what it was all about.
Well, when she showed me the products and let me even try them out myself (cleaning off my filthy car windows, no less), I was HOOKED. She mentioned something about me becoming a consultant myself, and I toyed with the idea for a bit, but I brushed it to the back of my mind. I’ve got a lot going on in my life at the moment (as you’ll soon see, if you follow this blog for any length of time), and I just couldn’t justify spending $10 on yet ANOTHER business opportunity.
At least, that’s the way I was thinking until last night when I watched a movie called STINK that solidified the importance of avoiding as many chemicals as possible in our everyday lives. You must, must, MUST watch this movie. Everyone in the world should watch this movie – even my eight-year-old daughter agrees!
Still haunted this morning by what I learned by watching that movie last night, I took the Norwex plunge, and I’m super excited. I only wish I hadn’t waited so long to do it.
