Young Living Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste

Young Living Thieves AromaBright Toothpaste

All of Young Living‘s toothpaste are quite similar. At this time they have three options (and a forth for kids). Over the past few months, I have reviewed the other two here and here.

After trying all three I find it quite difficult pick one that stands out from the other two. They are all very similar. They feel effective, they taste minty fresh and they all have clean, low harm ingredients.

The AromaBright has a bit of a sweeter taste compared to the other two. I didn’t care for it at first but as I kept using the toothpaste I adjusted and couldn’t notice the sweetener anymore.

I have noticed that this toothpaste is a favorite for a lot of people. I have a hard time picking which one I will repurchase first. But, for me, just by a hair, the winner is the Dentarome Plus toothpaste. I prefer the taste of that one and I felt like it helped my teeth stay just a little bit whiter than the other two YL pastes.

Living Libations Blemish Bundle Review

Living Libations Blemish Bundle Review

I first discovered Living Libations in a YouTube video about oil cleansing (Watch it! It’s really good!). As Sarah explained how this cleanser had helped heal her acne I knew I had to give it a try! Browsing Living Libations’ website, reading a few of their articles, I could tell this was a perfect place for me to be shopping. Their philosophies and values for personal care, both for the inside and the outside of our bodies matches up perfectly with mine and I will be very happy to continue being one of their customers.

This skin care bundle contains an oil cleanser, spot treatment, and a washcloth. All of these items are made out of organic products. And that makes me very happy!

The “Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever” oil cleanser has a very silky, hydrating texture and smells incredible. Grapefruit and lavender essential oils give it an amazingly sweet, citrusy scent while the other oils, like vetiver, give a herbally twist to the scent. The “Best Skin Ever” oil cleanser is my favorite of the trio.

Zippity Dew Dab” is a spot treatment. It’s a blend of some really potent essential oils like carrot seed, blue tansy, and niaouli. Sometimes I’d add one drop to my moisturizer and even in that dilution the smell made my eyes water. Because it smells so strong I don’t use it very often, but when I do, I notice my skin heals a bit quicker.

I really like the “Organic Hemp Cloth“. It’s really gentle and soft, yet exfoliating at the same time. I love the fact that it is an organic fabric! Fancy!

After using this set, my acne hasn’t totally cleared up, but there is a good reason for that. I am dealing with a toxic, leaky gut and for my body, acne is a big side effect of that. I did, however, notice that using these three products encouraged my skin to heal quicker.

In total, I thoroughly enjoyed the Blemish Bundle and would highly recommend it!

Note: Living Libations sent this to me for review. That has had no effect on opinion or review, and I plan to be a continued customer of Living Libations. Thank you so much, Charlotte, for your kindness and generosity!

Young Living Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste | Review

Young Living Thieves Dentarome Ultra Toothpaste | Review

A few weeks ago I reviewed Young Living’s Thieves Dentarome Plus Toothpaste and liked it so much. As I wrote in that review, I was really interested in trying Young Living’s other toothpaste. When I finished the Dentarome Plus, I decided to order the Dentarome Ultra. Unfortunately, I wasn’t as blown away by the Ultra as I was by the Plus.

I don’t love the flavor as much, but the texture is a bit better than the Plus. I noticed the Ultra didn’t have the same whitening power as the Plus. My teeth started to yellow again when I switched to this one.

Another drawback for me it the Xylitol. Ever since I was diagnosed with fructose malabsorption I have been extremely careful about they types of sugars I ingest (no, I’m not actually eating the toothpaste, but I am still cautious). No sugar alcohols for me!

To my surprise, after running the ingredient list for the Dentarome Ultra toothpaste through EWG’s Skin Deep database, the overall score is a 4. I am a bit snobby about the EWG ratings of the products I use. I don’t really like to use anything over a 2 or 3. However, a couple of the riskier ingredients are essential oils that some people can be a bit more sensitive to.

All in all, I didn’t hate this toothpaste, but because I liked the Dentarome Plus much better I would purchase that one over the Dentarome Ultra.

If you are interested in trying any Young Living products I would love it if you used my referral code 2949525 when you create your online account! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me in whatever way is easiest for you (Social media, email, comments, etc.)

Primal Pit Stick | Review

Primal Pit Stick | Review

One of the first changes I made to detoxify my daily routine was to stop using toxic deodorants. For about a year I used Lavanila Healthy Deodorant. It took me a really long time to get used to it. When I first started using the deodorant I didn’t know my pits would need to go through a detox phase. I couldn’t understand what all the hype was about. The deodorant did not work at all… until I finally realized what was happening and gave it some time. After a few weeks, it started to take effect. I have actually gone through a few sticks of that brand.

One thing that has bugged me about the Lavanila deodorant is that there is no mention of whether any of the ingredients are organic. Lavanila has a lot of corn-derived ingredients. When buying corn (and other food) to eat, you always want to buy it organic because of the GMO’s and pesticides. So if I’m not going to eat GMO, nonorganic corn why would I want to put it on my body?

I do not have to worry about that with Primal Pit Paste deodorant! Almost all of their ingredients are organic and/or non-GMO. They also do not include many ingredients (like corn) that can cause a red flag.

The scent that I am using is “Coconut Lime”. It is AMAZING! I could Eat it! It reminds me of a meringue pie. It is also so appropriate for the summer! There are many other amazing scents at Primal Pit Paste, like Vanilla-Lavender, Orange-Creamsicle, and Thyme-Lemongrass, just to name a few. The deodorants come in either a stick form or in a tub. I personally prefer a stick.

I’ve found that natural deodorants work just as well for me as the big name brand Antiperspirants like Dove, Secret, and Degree. But now I’m not putting a whole bunch of harmful chemicals on my body!

To compare this Primal Pit Paste deodorant to the Lavanila deodorant that I was using previously, I like the Pit Paste a bit more. It is slightly more powerful and is longer lasting. Plus I like the ingredients a lot more.

I highly, highly recommend this deodorant! I love it!

Have you tried Primal Pit Paste before? What scent should I try next?

What is your favorite natural, non-toxic deodorant?

Please tell me in the comments!

Lauren Brooke Two Step Cleansing System – Acne-Prone/Oily Skin | Review

Lauren Brooke Two Step Cleansing System – Acne-Prone/Oily Skin | Review

Recently I have been struggling with acne. At 20 years old, this is the worst my acne has ever been. There are several possible contributing factors. I was using a lot of harsh, chemically products for a long time. I have recently made the switch to natural products. My gut is also in really poor condition. A very common symptom of digestive disorders is skin conditions, like acne.

This two-step cleansing system from Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques is the first completely natural facial cleanser I have tried. While is hasn’t cured me of acne, it has helped my skin heal quite a bit faster from each zit that I get.

For me, there are too many parts to the system to use in the shower, so I only use it when getting ready for bed. I only need two or three pumps of the oil cleanser, and when I wear makeup I add a couple of extra pumps to melt any tough to remove eye makeup, like mascara. The biodegradable towelettes wipe away the oil and makeup really well.

One problem: I have gone through all of the wipes, but I still have half the bottle of cleanser left. However, the wipes are really big. I think if I were to use these again I would cut each wipe in half and only use only one half at a time. I could not find any information on how many wipes came in the packet.

The packet was packaged in a cute little box. I found that I had to be really careful opening and closing it. The box easily came undone and was a bit annoying to have to put back together to close properly.

I love the smell of both the cleanser and the wipes. It’s very lemony and herby and yummy smelling!

I love the ingredients! Both products are vegan. All of the ingredients are plant based. Almost all of them are organic. The few that are not certified organic are Non-GMO. This system is about as natural and non-toxic as you can get!

Overall I really enjoyed this cleansing duo. I would purchase it again! And I highly recommend it!

Have you tried any products from Lauren Brooke?

What is your favorite nontoxic skin care product?

I would love to hear what you have to say in the comments below!

Thieves Dentarome Plus Toothpaste | Review

Thieves Dentarome Plus Toothpaste | Review

I have been enjoying Young Living products for almost a year, and I have not been disappointed with a single item of theirs. One of my recent purchases has moved me forward in my journey to detox my beauty and personal care products. This is the first “clean” toothpaste I have ever tried and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner!

I have never been so happy with the results of a toothpaste! My teeth feel very clean after using it. The flavor is a nice mint with a cinnamon hint in it. It’s not strong or overpowering, though. Some of the conventional, drugstore toothpaste have very strong flavors and they made my eyes water. This Thieves toothpaste doesn’t do that. I’ve also noticed that eating soon after brushing my teeth does not make the food taste funny, or sour. My teeth have whitened a few shades as well! And it’s not even marketed to do that! In the past, whenever I would buy toothpaste, I would always go for the whitening ones. They never did a thing. This toothpaste is the first one that has ever made a noticeable difference.

What’s in it?

“Baking soda, deionized water, vegetable glycerine, xanthan gum, ionic trace minerals, thymol, eugenol, steviocide (Stevia rebaudiana), the essential oils of wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbent), peppermint (Menthe piperita), and the blend of Thieves [clove (Syzygium aromatic), lemon (Citrus lemon), cinnamon (Cinnamomum serum), eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiate), and rosemary (Rosmarinus officials)].” -Young Living site

The baking soda does cause it to be a little bit saltier than what I was used to. It also has a slight grit to it.

There are no chemicals, like fluoride, which has recently been labeled a dangerous substance.

All of the essential oils are of Young Living’s Therapeutic Grade. They farm nearly all of their plants themselves. Everything they use has been grown organically or in the wild. They also distil and bottle everything themselves and have rigorous testing done by both their own employees and external companies to be sure that only the highest quality products are going out to their customers.

Young Living also makes several other kinds of toothpaste. I am very excited to try those as well!

I have gone through a couple of wheels of the Thieves Floss. I have been pretty happy with it. It does its job well. From what I can see on the YL website there are no other ingredients than the floss and essential oils. In the past, I’ve found that regular floss is really flavored and sweet, with lots of “beneficial” chemicals added to it. I am very happy with this chemical-less floss to go along with my chemical-less toothpaste.

I really recommend both of these products! If you are interested in purchasing them I would love it if you would use my referral code (2949525) when creating your account. All you have to do is check the box that says you were referred by a member on the bottom right-hand side of the sign-up page. Then copy and paste my number into the boxes provided. (I will be able to receive a small commission from your purchases. If you don’t feel comfortable with that, that’s okay too. I still recommend the toothpaste and floss, or anything else from YL for that matter!)

Young Living Period Rescue

Young Living Period Rescue

Periods are a weird thing to talk about on the internet. Although, many of us come to the internet looking for suggestions on how to alleviate some of the side effects and deal better with that time of the month.

When I first got my period I took Midol to get rid of the cramps. I did that for several years. Most of the time it helped. When I started to have digestive issues I switched over to Tylenol. There are a lot of ingredients in Midol that I should not have. I figured that Tylenol would work better for me because it is advertised for people with sensitive stomachs. It did work, kind of, for a while, until it didn’t. After a while, there were many times where I would take the Tylenol and felt no better and there were many times where I would take it and felt a lot worse. My stomach is already pretty messed up when I have my period, I don’t need anything else making it worse.

I had just gotten into the essential oils when I was getting fed up with the bad cramps and wacked out tummy, so I went to good old Pinterest, looking for a solution. Pinterest Is the place to go for essential oil info and tips. I found that Young Living makes an oil blend called Dragon Time, for PMS type of symptoms . It is quite pricey so I searched for an alternative. I found a couple of Pinterest posts that said Geranium Oil works really well for them. I recently did a bit more research on geranium oil and learned that it is great for improving circulation, blood flow and mood boosting. On a side note, it is also great for keeping the skin looking younger! I was still hung up on the Dragon Time because it is specifically made for PMS. After doing a bit of browsing around the YL website, I found the Dragon Time in a massage oil formula! This is a big bottle, about a million times the size of a little essential oil bottle, it seems to have more uses and it was about ten dollars cheaper! I had to get it! And I love it! I use it all the time and not just when I have my period. It is very soothing to have a back rub with it. There is one specific time I remember I was in the worst mood, I rubbed this all over my torso and on the back of my neck and within minutes my mood completely turned around!

For period cramps I mix about half a pump of Dragon Time Massage Oil and about three drops of Geranium Oil and rub it all over my lower stomach and lower back. It works really well at keeping the pain at bay.

When I feel really bad I will add in one or both of these oils. The PanAway is similar to Icy Hot or Tiger Balm. It provides heat that can help relieve some of the internal pain. The DiGize is my best friend! It calms wacky tummies in minutes! I prefer to take a few drops on my tongue. Both of these oils are hot oils so it is recommended for them to be used with a carrier oil. I am lazy and the heat doesn’t bother me or irritate my skin so I normally don’t. But when I do feel like following the directions, I find that the Dragon Time Massage Oil works well as a topical carrier oil. I love using coconut oil as an oral carrier oil.

I highly recommend all four of these oils! The Massage Oil is great for both men and women to relax with. The Geranium Oil Is great for circulation and preventing wrinkles. The PanAway is great for body aches. And the DiGize is a tummy ache miracle worker!

If you are interested in purchasing any of these, it would mean a lot to me if you used my referral code 2949525 when logging into the Young Living site!

Do you use any of these oils? What do you use them for? What is your favorite essential oil? Please tell me in the comments below!

The Best Stomach Ache Remedy | Young Living’s DiGize

The Best Stomach Ache Remedy | Young Living’s DiGize

Do you ever get stomach aches? Are you sensitive to some foods?

I do and I am! For the past four years, I have been dealing with a lot of food sensitivities and digestive issues. So far, I have not been fully diagnosed. A lot of foods can give me a stomach ache. So easing the ache as quickly as possible is always a nice thing! I prefer to do things as chemically free as possible. Young Living’s DiGize works really well for me! I have seen that it is supposed to be pronounced by taking the Di from digestion and the Gize from energize. So Digestion + Energize= DiGize.

My body has been having a hard time tolerating any supplements that could help me. Through several friends, I learned about Young Living oils. I tried a couple that were highly recommended and looked like they might be helpful, but they are quite pricey. I really liked what I tried so I looked for less expensive options. I tried a couple other, cheaper brands and I liked them, but they were not as effective for me. I decided that the high quality and effectiveness was worth the higher price tag. The more I learned about these oils the more I fell in love with them.  I have become a member, which allows me to purchase oils at a wholesale price instead of the retail price. So I do save some money there. There are also ways to earn points and then cash in those points for free products. I can also sign people up and then earn a little bit of commission. If you would like to sign up and use my referral number I would greatly appreciate it! It is: 2949525

I used to take over the counter anti-acids like any other person would for a tummy ache. My mom started to read in many places that they are very bad for you and will cause a lot more damage than good in the long run. I started to notice that. I did keep taking them every once in a while when I felt I absolutely needed to, eventually, they started to make me feel even sicker. I then started to look for other options.

When I was introduced to this company I went straight to Pinterest. There, you can find all kinds of information and recipes for these oils. I basically searched “Young Living for stomach aches” and found single oils that could be mixed together. I also found the DiGize blend. It has pretty much every oil that is beneficial to your digestive system in it. There are oils to help calm your stomach, make the stomach healthier and stronger, are antifungal, and  anti-parasitic. To me, it seems to cover all the bases!

To take it, I normally put 1 to 3 drops on my tongue and wash it down with a couple big sips of water.  The way I do it is not exactly how the directions say. You can either apply it topically or take it orally, but because these are all hot oils you are supposed to add a carrier oil (I like using coconut oil) to dilute it. The heat and burning don’t really bother me so I normally just skip that step. It works pretty quickly and really helps ease a tummy ache. An extra tip: if you can, get someone to gently rub your back. For me, it calms me down and helps my muscles relax so I feel better even quicker!

This has not cured my stomach issues but it sure helps with the immediate discomfort. I have gone through several bottles of this and am in love with it! It is a lifesaver for me and I can’t imagine not having it on hand ever again!

Do you use essential oils? If so what is your favorite oil to use?
