I recently read this article that my friend Amanda sent to me about items that make travel easy with a child / children. Guess what was one of the items recommended in the list. Yes, you guessed right, Thieves Spray ( #17).
This, my friend is something I never leave the home without. Not only can it be used to sanitize toilet seats ( much needed when your toddler is starting to use public toilets. I am still grossed out if he touches anything in the public toilet setting), door knobs, act as a room freshener, it is wonderful for any surface that needs a good shot of clean. Another plus to this is that it can serve as a mouth freshener if you need one or even soothe your throat ( just spray at the back of your mouth)
My husband who travels a ton has become a big fan on this and insists on carrying one with him at all times. That is the biggest testament one can ever get, given how right brained my husband is.
I carry this with me not only while traveling but also for our regular day to day outings to the park or pick up after day care. It is so easy to do a quick spray of the hands and toys after play. I love it as it is non toxic unlike the popular brands available in the market. CNN wrote an article on how hand sanitizers are not only toxic but can also affect the immune system.
Another article states how Triclosan, an ingredient found in hand sanitizers and anti bacterials soaps and many cosmetics can disrupt the endocrine functioning and may also cause breast cancer. For all these reason, please please do read labels before buying any product.
This is the main reason I choose YL products for my family as they are clean and completely non toxic.
That to me is Courage. I often struggle with ‘Courage’ these days. My whole career for the last 16 years has been focussed on working with people one on one. Starting Harmony and Vitality required ‘Courage’ for me as it meant being out in public with my views and opinions.
Almost everyday since I first started this company, I have gone to my husband asking him for words of encouragement as doing this work has forced me to face my fears and challenges like never before. His words and support have encouraged me to go on.
He often reminds me of my ‘Why‘. This is the first time I am writing this in public, so thanks for being a part of this. My ‘Why‘ is to bring health and wellness to every household, to every person that I meet, to touch the lives of all that I encounter everyday. It is to empower people to not only take charge but also to educate about the ease of swapping household goods for practical & sustainable wellness. My ‘Why‘ is to bring them opportunities to attain financial freedom.
And this requires me to be ‘out there’ in the world bringing the message across. I am not a public speaker – I have never been. I call on the guidance of the universe to show me my next step, to show me how to reach people. Often, I have no clue or idea where to go next but always, the next step shows up. Sometimes, not in the timeline I have in mind, and therefore requires me to trust and have faith.
I always have an oil that supports me through my journey . Believe EO is one of them. When I apply oils, I often set intentions. I apply Believe on my forehead and my brain stem.
I will intentionally release any emotions that are not serving me and invite in Belief, Trust and Faith in my journey. And it works. Believe EO is a blend. You can read more about it here.
