Essential Oils for the Home
Did you know?
- Since WWII, more than 72,000 synthetic chemicals have been produced - the majority have never been tested for long-term effects.
- An EPA survey concluded that indoor air was 3 to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air and chemicals in household cleaners are 3 times more likely to cause cancer than outdoor air.
- Over the last 20 – 30 years, the level of toxins stored in our fatty tissues has risen; studies show some of these toxins are with us for life.
- Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, circulatory disorders, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and hormonal problems are diseases commonly related to the bioaccumulation of chemical exposure.

What is Bioaccumulation?
- Bioaccumulation is a combination of our cookware, household cleaners, cosmetics, fragrances and personal care products, our flooring, our mattresses and pillows, which contain synthetic, endocrine-disrupting, toxic substances.
- Our skin is in constant contact with these synthetic chemicals, which is significant because our skin is the permeable portal through which substances are absorbed into the bloodstream.
- “The buildup of synthetics in our fatty tissues occurs over time because we do not metabolize or break down the toxin, we simply accumulate it.” ("Healing Homes," Fuller, McDanel)
- Toxins can enter and maintain residual levels in the heart, lungs, and brain. They can also damage the immune system; cause separation of skin layers and inflammation to the skin.
