Ditch and Switch

Updated: Feb 19

Did you know that most women put on over 200 toxins before they even leave the house in the morning? That's a lot of toxins the body has to process before the day has even started!


Toxins can be found in everyday products such as hand soap, candles, perfumes, laundry soap, muscle rubs, air fresheners, energy support products, dryer sheets, skincare, sunscreen, toothpaste, toilet cleaners, bug spray, and food.


These products can cause skin irritation, depression, hormone and endocrine disruption, damage to DNA, neurotoxicity, headaches, acne, rashes, liver damage, blurred vision, muscle twitching, anxiety, asthma, fatigue, joint pain, sinus congestion, bloating, and mental fog.


Sound familiar?


These toxins can be avoided by ditching your conventional products and switching to natural plant-based ones. The more you can control what you expose your body to, the better your body will perform. Here at Essential Juniper Co, we like to "ditch and switch" in all areas of our life: Structural, Emotional, Environmental, and Nutritional. By ditching our conventional toxin-filled products and using natural plant-based ones, we give our bodies a jump-start towards its potential health. 



When you make your DIY's be sure you use glass, stainless steel or BPA free plastic. Essential oils are powerful and will eat through regular plastic. Yes, they are that powerful! Here are some of my favorite ways to ditch and switch in your home!


Bathroom Spray: in a 4oz glass spray bottle. Take 20 drops of your favorite oil, a splash of witch hazel, then topped off with water. Essential Oil Ideas: Citrus Fresh, Purification and Lavender


Dryer Sheets: Using 2 wool dryer balls. Put 4-5 drops of your favorite oil on each ball, throw-in when the load is done for an additional 10 min tumble. You can also cut the Seedlings Baby Wipes in half and use them! Essential Oil Ideas: Lime, Cedarwood and Stress Away


Tub/Shower/Tile Scrub: 1 cup baking soda, 1 cap Thieves Household Cleaner, 1/4 cup white vinegar, 10 drops Lemon oil and 1/2 cup coarse salt. Mix it all together and scrub in circles. Let sit for 5-10 minutes then rinse.
