MEDICINE CABINET MAKEOVER WITH ESSENTIAL OILS

Various cosmetics and bath products in bathroom cabinet

 

It’s funny how having children changes the way you think. When I had a headache, I grabbed for a bottle. If I had a cold, I grabbed for more bottles. I treated symptoms my whole life without even realizing that there could be more to it.

Until I had children.

 All of a sudden I was concerned about what I was putting on them and in their bodies. We did a complete overhaul of the products and cleaning supplies we used in our home. We started cleaning with vinegar, water, baking soda and only buying things we could pronounce.

Next we decided to try essential oils. It took awhile, but we figured out how to replace most of what we used in our medicine cabinet.
