healthier holiday decoratingEver wonder about the effects of holiday decorating on your health?  You may not have, but increasingly families are taking an inventory of what they use in their homes and how it affects their health.  All year long many of us use numerous toxic chemicals that adversely affect our  health.  These chemicals interfere with the normal function of our organs and may contribute to sluggish metabolism, body weight issues and the inner hormonal workings of our bodies and those of our children.  Offending products in the home include everything from harsh cleaning substances to personal hygiene products and even scented products like candles, air freshener and potpourri.

In December, our holiday decorating desires often find us adding even more scents, candles, potpourri to our already stale, confined indoor winter air.  You may not be aware of it, but a growing number of individuals are limiting their exposure to harmful household chemicals by opting to use high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils and essential oil-infused products in their homes.  One of the largest suppliers of these products is the Young Living Company.  Young Living offers a wide spectrum of products that rely on natural essential oils in place of harmful chemicals.
