is young living a greenwashing company

Young Living products are safe and nontoxic but not listed on ewg.org. I did some research on chemical free living and toxin free products to share with you that Young Living Products are safe and do not participate in the greenwashing we see in stores today.  

I have spent hundreds of hours researching products and ingredients on EWG.

Young Living is the only company I have found so far in 8 years of research that I trust.

Their products are completely safe and are beyond that….they enhance the wellness of my family.

Young Living Products are not on ewg.org so I thought I would break down every product for you so you could see the safety of the ingredients. It will take me some time to add each one on this blog, so I’ll start with the products I use every day in my own home, love and recommend to you all every day.

FIRST OF ALL. ARE ESSENTIAL OILS SAFE?

NO! Not every essential oil company has safe essential oils. Truth is, there are not standards in labeling so you don’t always know what you’re getting in those essential oil bottles.

ARE YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS SAFE?

When used properly, yes. Young Living is the world leader in essential oils for a reason. Our bottles of essential oils contain 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils. And, that is all.  No fillers. No junk. No additives. And Young Living takes great care to be sure the therapeutic quality of the oil is as good as it gets. Not only are there no corners cut, but they take exceptional care of the plants and harvest at the exact moment to make sure that your family is getting the highest quality oils on the market.

ARE OTHER YOUNG LIVNG PRODUCTS SAFE?

I am always sharing about Toxin Free Living. And I truly believe that you should kick all of the toxins you can locate out of your home TODAY. I have solutions for all of those replacements and many of the safe products I use in my home come in my Monthly Wellness Box from Young Living. Because they are not on ewg.org I am including the ingredient listings here for you to see.

**Keep in mind the many companies hide unsafe ingredients in their products and they are not listed in the ingredients. Words like FRAGRANCE actually mean synthetic and chemical fragrance. So you have to know what you’re looking for and trust the companies you are supporting with your purchases.

Here are my Toxin Free Favorite Products so I’ll share those ingredients so that you know they are safe for your family.
