Did you know the average woman uses 300 chemicals per day? YIKES. That may sound like a lot but when you read the label on a single product, the list of chemicals is often lengthy.
These chemicals are in our beauty products, soaps, shampoos, and more. Not to mention the chemicals we encounter in cleaning products, food, and in the air. It’s no wonder many of us feel taxed and depleted, we’re experiencing chemical overload. What chemicals are in your products? Check out this handy list.
Moving from our known beauty routines to a more natural lifestyle can sometimes feel overwhelming. We’ve used some of these products for many, many years. But you’re not alone in this process.

In this group, we’ll share how to create your own DIY products using inexpensive ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda, coconut oil, olive oil, essential oils, and more to make our own low-cost, healthier products. We’ll also share pre-made non-toxic products in case you’d prefer convenience. We’ll share experiences, best practices, and recommendations.

25 Ways You Are Poisoning Yourself Before Breakfast
Have you ever stopped to think about all of the chemicals we use on a daily basis? Chemical additives are in the air fresheners we breathe, the beauty and cleaning products we use, and in the perfumes and colognes we spray. Not to mention the chemicals in the food we eat. While these chemicals might be considered harmless in small amounts, what is the impact of these chemicals when they’re mixed together? And how does exposure to these chemicals day after day, year after year affect our bodies and our health?
We know that many chemicals are associated with negative health effects. This is why there’s a growing movement back to more natural food and products. At my house, we began the switch many years ago by buying organic and non-GMO foods whenever possible, buying natural health and beauty products or making our own, and using essential oils.
Which of these products do you use in your household? Check the list below to see the known chemicals and negative side effects associated with those chemicals.

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts obtained by careful steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapping. Pure essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they are extracted. This makes them powerful allies in your family’s health and wellness, as well as a natural ingredient for your cleaning and self-care products.
