Things are a changin' round here

Did you guys see the breaking news yesterday about antibacterial soaps NOT doing what they advertise?!?!? THEY DON'T WORK!!!???  My whole world was shaken! I have an incredibly wimpy immune system and get sick within hours of being exposed. So to say I rely on these products to keep me healthy is an understatement... or was an understatement! I just don't know what company to trust anymore!

 And that got me thinking about the other products I use and their claims of a germ free home. I mean, do they honestly work!? How can I trust them? All day I researched and aside from using straight up bleach on every thing- including me, then the answer is- I can't trust the products! Why am I exposing myself to all of toxic chemicals when they don't do anything they claim? Why can't I use organic or all natural products to do the same job AND I won't potentially get cancer from the chemicals? What's a girl to do?????

 Things are a changin' round here, folks! I'm in the process of researching the most organic or natural soap products that I can clean with, and use for myself. I've promised the Husband that when the new year comes, I will head back to the doctors to get a grip on my aliments, (more on those later) and eat so much healthier. So, I'm thinking I'll change the soap and cleaners by the new year as well. Sounds like a great idea right? I think so!

My front runners, right now, are Dr. Brommer's, Burt's Bees, and Seventh Generation. I'm thinking I can take care of everything with these products!

What do y'all think about the news and what do you use for products? I'd love to hear suggestions!

  1. Hmmm... I may be changing as well. I didn't know that Burt's Bees had hand soap!

  2. Nice.. so, I read this while (I still am actually) sitting in the waiting room at my Doctor's office. Every time I am here, I use the anti bacterial stuff before entering the elevator, the office.. before leaving. UGH!

  3. I would suggest checking whatever you chose on the skin deep data base for toxicity levels. I've got a post about all the products that I use and have found to be human and earth friendly. Doctor bronners is on that list. According to old research Burt's bees is owned by Clorox. I hope you find something good for you. I know I was always sick years ago since changing my eating habits and products I haven't been sick in 3-4 years. Not even a single cold.

  4. My friend really loves this brand called Melaleuca. Their website is http://www.melaleuca.com. My friend sells it so after you check it out if you have any questions or want to place an order I can get you in contact with her.
