If the scented candles in your home contain even the remotest possibility to release toxins, WHY EVEN TAKE THE CHANCE?
Yes, it depends on the kind of candle you buy; however, most candles release numerous types of toxic chemicals, such as benzene and toluene. Benzene is cancer-causing and toluene affects the central nervous system. The scent itself in a candle can contain thousands of chemicals, and most chemicals have not been tested for toxicity, in combination or alone. Studies show that these chemicals in scents can cause damage to the lungs, brain, and central nervous system, as well as cause developmental difficulties. Numerous people report scented candles triggering asthma attacks and even migraines.
Can I tell you how INCREDIBLE IT FEELS when I, as a father, see the RESULTS of living THE DETOXED LIFE in my children’s lives and health . It’s a great feeling to know that I am keeping them from the TOXINS that are a part of the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) every time I hand them “green leaves” (organic spinach) with their dinner, a bottle of kombucha or when I diffuse Young Living Essential Oils in their room each night…

In 2012, weighing in at 260+ pounds, I finally admitted to myself that I had let myself go. I’d become toxified, overweight and was not living as well as I KNEW I COULD BE.
I began the process of IDENTIFYING & REMOVING toxifying products, foods, beverages, habits and mindsets that were hindering me from living a better life. I began to REPLACE these negatives with POSITIVE ALTERNATIVES and I have NEVER GONE BACK.
The desire to help others on their own DETOX JOURNEY has led me to, amongst other things, complete certifications as a Nutrition Coach, Life Coach and, most recently, become a Young Living Essential Oils & Products Ambassador.
Detoxing our lives begins by asking the question, “What do I need to GET RID OF?”
If we are really honest with ourselves, it’s not hard to immediately find one or more “TOXINS” we KNOW we need to get out of our lives. Whether it’s a product, food, habit or thought pattern, taking time to identify the negatives is an important first step towards detoxing our lives.
The next step, REMOVAL, is more likely to occur when we get a VISION for WHAT WE WILL REPLACE THE TOXIN WITH.
Once we have found HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES to REPLACE TOXINS with, it becomes so much easier for us to TAKE ACTION to REMOVE the negative and REPLACE the TOXINS.
We want to be a part of YOUR PROCESS in guiding you towards REMOVING TOXINS from your life and replacing them with HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES.
