Everyday Toxins Harming Your Brain

Did you know that many common household and personal care products contain ingredients that are known to be neurotoxic -- meaning they are toxic to the brain and nervous system? Chronic exposures to these ingredients can lead to neurological problems over time. Let's take a look at just a few of the most common toxic ingredients:

One prevalent neurotoxin is phthalates, a class of chemicals used to soften plastics in products like food packaging, cosmetics, toys, and more. Phthalates have been linked to brain development issues in children as well as increased risks of ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and altered behavioral functioning. Parabens, used as preservatives in cosmetics and personal care items, have also demonstrated neurotoxic effects in studies.

Flame retardants used in furniture foam, electronics, and building insulation are another major neurotoxic culprit. These chemicals can accumulate in household dust that is inhaled or ingested, potentially impairing brain development and function. Even some non-stick cookware contains neurotoxic compounds like perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) that can leach into food.

While avoiding every neurotoxic chemical is nearly impossible in modern life, being an informed consumer is key. Read labels carefully, choose natural alternatives when possible, choose glass over plastics and ditch the toxin-coated cookware. Small steps can reduce your cumulative exposure to neurotoxins and positively impact your brain health.

Pro Tips for Your Diffusers

Did you know some of the Young Living diffusers have a built-in funnel?
To refill your diffuser, remove cover to expose the funnel/lid of your diffuser. Remove and flip over, using as a funnel, plug the bottom with your thumb. Fill funnel with water. Now you’re ready to fill the diffuser—to do so simply move your thumb to uncover the funnel opening and allow the water to pour carefully into the diffuser reservoir. Add in essential oils of choice, replace lid/cover, and turn on as usual. This trick makes for quick, easy refillings without the hassle of unplugging, replugging, or spilling. Works best with the Desert Mist and Lantern diffuser bases, and any other diffuser with a funnel-type interior lid.

Use warm (not HOT) water to increase the mist volume! 

Add your essential oils before adding the water to help disburse them better in the diffuser. When you add them after the water, they tend to float on top and don't mix as well. This is especially effective when blending oils in the diffuser.
