APPLYING MINDFULNESS TO PERSONAL CARE If you’ve been looking for a way to clean up your personal care routine, to embrace the natural, and avoid harmful chemicals, essential oils provide the perfect solution. Take a look at the following suggestions to see how you can detox your personal care routine: S TRY A NATURAL DEODORANT. There is a lot of controversy about the potentially harmful effects of antiperspirant ingredients on the body. Many worry that the chemicals and questionable ingredients used in deodorants may absorb into the body through the skin. If you want to avoid these chemical ingredients altogether, consider trying dōTERRA® Natural Deodorant, which uses ingredients like beeswax, coconut oil, Shea butter, and essential oils to nourish the skin and fight against body odor. Not only does this formula utilize the pleasant aroma of essential oils, but it is free of aluminum, parabens, artificial colors, and fragrances. S DITCH THE CHEMICAL-RIDDEN PERFUMES. While they may smell nice, many perfume and cologne formulas on the market are full of synthetic chemicals. Instead of inhaling or absorbing these chemicals every time you spritz, why not swap your pricey perfumes for the naturally uplifting aroma of essential oils? The oils in your bathroom cupboard offer endless combinations of beautiful blends. Get creative and mix your own signature scent! S TRY DIY RECIPES. A great way to limit the toxic load in your hygiene routine is to make your own personal care mixtures at home. In addition to the benefits of essential oils, homemade products give you peace of mind about what exactly you are putting on your body. Not to mention, when you put together your own personal care products, you’ll know exactly what you are putting in your body. Visit the dōTERRA Product Blog to see how easy it is to use essential oils to make your own sugar scrubs, facial masks, soaps, creams, mouth rinses, bath salts, and more. S BE KIND TO YOUR SKIN. Whether or not you have sensitive skin, you want to be selective about the products you use. Many products on the market contain harsh and potentially damaging chemicals. dōTERRA offers plenty of gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and toners infused with the powerful properties of essential oils. Whatever your individual skincare needs, dōTERRA offers a specialized line to help you address your skincare concerns, like HD Clear®, Veráge®, Essential Skin Care, and dōTERRA SPA. S GIVE YOUR HAIR A BREAK. Between the harsh chemicals in hair products and the relentless damage of coloring, drying, curling, and straightening, sometimes your hair just needs a break. Help fortify and smooth your frazzled strands by using essential oils in your haircare routine. Every product in the dōTERRA Salon Essentials® line is infused with ingredients that help clean, hydrate, and revitalize the hair. By swapping out your regular hair care products and taking a little help from essential oils, you can reduce some of the damage done by coloring and styling while you enjoy the lovely smell of essential oils on your hair. / 29
