Top 5 Detoxing Essential Oils To Reduce Toxic Load

Time and time again, I find myself amazed at the amount of chemicals that affect our bodies on a daily basis. Before my awareness, I blissfully blew through life slathering on heavily-laden lotions, cleaning while inhaling puffs of toxins, styling my hair in a cloud of chemicals. Sure, I could adjust my diet and exercise a bit more, but there wasn’t a whole lot more I could do, right? And along came essential oils and completely transformed my life! That’s when the term “toxic load” began to shake my bones and I realized how inundated my body had become from the choices I was making.

Smart Mom’s Essential Oil Family Guide For Spring/Summer

Most of us look forward to Spring and Summer as a time to relax, recharge, and renew our mind, body, and soul. The weather warms up, we begin planning vacations, and our kiddos look forward to summer break from their rigorous academic schedule. Without a doubt, we spend more time outside getting in our dose of vitamin D and just having fun. But we often don’t think about the seasonal threats lurking in the wayside until they hit us head on with annoying symptoms that often stop us from enjoying our time. We also don’t think about how important it is to nourish and care for our skin during this part of the year. And with travel taking priority, we always look for a way to have quick healthcare solutions at our fingertips while we are away from home. Smart Moms, there is no better time to harness the power of high-quality essential oils than right now!

Boost Your Immune System Part 3: Diffusing, Applying, & Cleaning

The final piece to the immunity puzzle that we have been assembling in this series lies in dōTERRA’s amazing blend specifically designed and formulated to provide immune support and protection – On Guard®. One of the facets about dōTERRA’s company that I appreciate the most is that they truly listen to their customers and Wellness Advocates and attempt to provide what they need the most. Though this sometimes takes years, they only release a new essential oil or blend when they know that it is of the highest quality and that its procurement and development aligns with the standards that they have set for their company. And, as a result, we have one of the most exceptional oil blends on the market – On Guard® Protective Blend – and an array of products developed over the years that contain On Guard as a main component. Why? Because we are serious about immune support. We know that, if our immune systems aren’t functioning at top condition, our bodies begin to shut down piece by piece until we have a litany of problems that cannot be solved with one magic solution. Protecting your body’s immune system is the keystone to the entire body’s balance.

If you reclaim control of these areas of your life, you will greatly increase your body’s ability to ward of these immune detractors. Getting a good night’s sleep, reducing the amount of stress in your life, and reducing the amount of toxins in your body and life will only free up the effort that your body may be currently putting into keeping these systems in check. dōTERRA gives you a variety of essential oils and blends that will enable your body to rebalance and recalibrate itself so that it can properly protect your immune system.

Boost Your Immune System Part 1: Poor Nutrition and Lack of Exercise

There is nothing simple about our immune system. Scientists continue to study the complexity of the processes and structures that work together in our bodies keep us healthy year after year. As we transition from one season to the next, there are new threats that attack our environment and can potentially send our bodies into a tailspin if we have not prepared ourselves for the battle. This includes preparing and protecting both the fixed and the mobile parts of our immune defenses; the fixed are systems of our body that keep threats from entering, while the mobile are cells and systems that kick into action when the body detects a threat. There is no one thing that you can do to completely support your immune system, but rather a series of daily habits that will help you to stay on top of your health and wellness all year long.
