The cost of cleaning
"I'd rather clean with chemicals that cost more, affect the air we breathe, irritate our skin and pollute our waterways."
Sounds crazy, doesn't it? But. That, in effect, is what you're saying when you choose to not bring Essential Oils into your life. So I've been wondering what the true resistance is.
It can't be cost. I went onto Coles Online and chose 7 products that most households use regularly. We have replaced all of these with simple raw ingredients and Essential Oils. (side note: as I don't buy these any more I nearly fell off my chair at how much they cost now).
Just one month's supply of fabric softener and dishwasher tablets alone comes to $30.
If I told you that you could make your own for less than $5 a month, in less than 5 minutes, would you believe me?
It can't be health. We've all read the safety warnings on these cleaning products, and felt the tightening of our own chest and difficulty breathing when we've cleaned the shower with the popular brands. So we know they're not doing us any good.
I wonder if there is a correlation between the increase in disease and the convenience lifestyle we lead? Food, sugar in particular has had the finger pointed straight at it, but as fast and processed food became the norm, so too did chemical overload.
It can't be that we don't care about the environment. We all recycle now. We conserve energy. Water. Resources. We're aware of our impact. We're well informed about global warming, and algae in our waterways. We've seen the warning signs to not swim in the lakes in our estates that capture the run off.
I can only come up with two possibilities;
We don't know how.
We don't think we have the time.
You know...in the time it's taken you to read this post, you could have made a bathroom cleaner, kitchen surface spray, glass cleaner, ant strips, fabric softener, and had your dishwasher tablets packed down ready to set overnight.
How do I know how to do this stuff? That's easy! I'm a researcher. A stubborn one. And my Essential oil tribe get the benefits from that. Everyone who starts their Essential Oil journey with our tribe are able to access no fluff educational materials to help them make the use of their starter kits.
