Created just for you - Cleansing Life Classes! Let me tell you a little story about how these came about and share a video of what they are.
I think back to when my daughter was born. Her brand new skin soaking up everything she came in contact with.
Diligently I cleaned the bath tub with Tilex, Comet, Clorox or other cleaning products – thinking that I needed to keep germs away from her.
Little did I know, many cleaning products contain chemicals such as chloroform, formaldehyde and benzene – linked to reproductive disorders, asthma, and even cancer, and the likelihood of completely rinsing these toxins away is very low. My daughter was then soaking in a warm bath – essentially absorbing any of the remaining toxins like a sponge.
The next time I cleaned, I stepped into the shower and inhaled that clean smell, thinking it smelled….clean, right?
Have you heard how many toxins we absorb through our feet? Any cleaning chemicals that the shower was rinsing down the drain was ending up right at my feet and I was breathing in the fumes.
Later at the grocery store I remember standing in the cleaning product aisle at the grocery. Before turning down the aisle I could already smell the chemicals. When I stood there, staring at the dozens of options, a second fact hit me (other than almost passing out from the fumes). The price. Have you seen the prices of cleaning products nowadays? Outrageous!
And finally, the environmental impacts of these toxins are vast.
I just got back from a trip to Manatee Springs State Park last weekend. There had been some flooding so there was no swimming allowed. This spring was literally black with grunge. We were allowed to go kayaking and the sludge stuck to the kayaks when we got out took 20 minutes to scrub. The rangers said the grunge was from pesticides, fertilizers, toxic cleaning products, oils etc. that leeched into the waterway.
According to the EPA, “Ingredients containing phosphorus or nitrogen can contribute to nutrient-loading in water bodies, leading to adverse effects on water quality.”
I started researching. As I did so, I became more and more upset – wondering how can these toxins be allowed into our grocery stores? Not just cleaning products, but beauty products with coal tar, somatic cells in dairy, toxins in sunscreen, formaldehyde in new carpet and furniture….the list goes on and on. When I found out what many of these toxins do in our body I decided something has to be done. The current state is unacceptable.
I furthered my research for months and months, compiling the information took even longer. I edited and experimented and found the answer. Cleansing Life Classes!
You may have seen my simple guide to organic essential oils….that was one of the top read posts ever on my blog.
There is a huge need for this.
Let’s do this! Learn the realities! Become outraged! Join my crusade against companies lining their pockets by taking the easy and cheap way out and let’s make the world better for our kids and future generations.
I need your help!
What times and days work best in your schedule?
Which classes seem the most valuable in your life?
I may even consider doing some hands on webinar recipe classes. Participants in the small group would get a grocery list and would be able to have active participation in the webinar. Would that be valuable?

It’s a LOT of information to absorb in a short amount of time, so my goal is to keep them as simple as possible, with lots of real life stories interspersed within!
