If you look around you—Chipotle is cutting all their GMO’s. Panera has placed signs in their restaurants that they’re cutting all the chemicals from their salad dressings. Kraft Mac and Cheese has cut their dyes. Heinz ketchup has cut all corn syrup from their ketchup. People are starting to flip over the backs of the bottles of what they put on their skin, eat, clean their homes with and say “no more.” That’s where oils come in. Can you live a completely toxic-free life? No, but you can minimize your exposure. You can take control of your laundry soap, your dish soap, your cleaning supplies, your supplements and say, “I want a less toxic life.” That’s where the oils come in. The starter kit literally has 10,000 uses, from cleaning your home, to emotional balance, to personal care products like toothpaste and deodorant, to fitness.
I’d like to issue the three-cabinet challenge. When you get home, I’d like to encourage you to start flipping over the backs of the bottles that you use in any three cabinets in your home, and then read the ingredients on these bottles. If there’s anything on there that you can’t pronounce, it’s time to start swapping it out. I wouldn’t slather that stuff on my skin, plug it into my walls and smell it, giving it access to the limbic lobe of my brain! I wouldn’t cook with it and ingest it. I wouldn’t wash my hair with it and have it in my bloodstream over my brain in 26 seconds. I wouldn’t clean my counters and butcher block with it and then eat my food off that same block, or wash my clothes with it. We’re at a place where people aren’t just taking everything at face value anymore, that is, thinking that a product is safe.
Let me get real with you for a moment as I wrap up—and tell you the true reason I teach so emphatically about this. Why does chemical free living matter so much to me? Because I have seen the other end of a chemical filled lifestyle. And I want everyone to know what they are putting in and on their bodies.
The number 2 cause of death in the United States is cancer. 1,620 people a day die of cancer. 1 in 3 cases in the U.S. Are directly linked to poor diet, physical inactivity, weight, or chemical exposure. The American Cancer Society says only 5 to 10 percent of all cancer cases are from gene defects. 5 percent. That means 95 percent of cancer cases are under our control. It’s what we allow into our homes.
The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health studied 2,983 ingredients in our products at home—and found 884 toxic ingredients. 314 of them cause biological mutations. 218 caused reproductive problems. 778 were toxic to the human body. 146 they knew caused cancer tumors—but were allowed in the United States, even though they were banned in other countries around the world. Many of these chemicals are allowed in common cleaning supplies in the United States—things under your cabinets right now.
26 seconds after exposure, chemicals are found in measurable amounts in the human body. The average woman applies 300 chemicals to her body a day—80–before breakfast. The top 10 most dangerous chemicals in our home: air fresheners, like plug ins or candles. Second on the list—chemical cleaning supplies, drain and oven cleaners and furniture polish, as well as dishwasher soap and dish soap. Beauty supplies and personal care products—hairspray, gel, shampoo, and deodorant are laden with chemicals. Most deodorant has aluminum in it, and we slather it on our lymph nodes for 70 years. Many scientists believe aluminum exposure may be linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. One of the top pollutants in the family home is laundry soap and fabric softener—you wash your clothes, it sits on your skin, it outgases in your closet all night long. That information, is straight from the government, from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Top 10 Killer Household Chemicals Study.
There are 100—thousand chemicals on the market today. The Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976 grandfathered them in. What does that mean to you? Simply put: these chemicals have not had any safety testing, and we know very little information about their side effects. Dr. Samuel Epstein, chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition, says, “it is unthinkable that women would knowingly inflict such exposures on their infants and children and themselves if products were routinely labeled with explicit warnings of cancer risks. But they are not labeled.”
Since the 1940’s, prostrate cancer is up 200 percent. Thyroid cancer—155 percent. Brain cancer, 70 percent. And the American Cancer Society estimates a 50 percent rise in cancer rates by 2020. It is no wonder that the quality of air inside your home is 5 to 7 times more toxic then outdoor air quality.
What happens when your body is chemically overloaded? You may see it in something as catastrophic as cancer. But most of us feel it on other ways: lethargy. Inability to focus. Sleep trouble. Chronic inflammation. Unexplained pain. Skin issues—adult acne. Hot flashes. Stress and fear. If you face any of these issues, it’s time to kick chemicals to the curb. You can control what you allow within the walls of your home.
I got invited to my first oils class, got my starter kit, and began right where you are right now, taking this chemical free living thing one day at a time, kicking one chemical out of my home at a time. You can do this. It’s about taking small steps, and saying no more. I will not allow these things in my home. You can’t control all the places you are exposed—but you are the gatekeeper of your house.
Learn alongside our team. Let us guide you through the process in simple, easy steps. Step 1 is to start with the starter kit—a diffuser and 11 bottles of oil, some of the most common oils on the earth—for supporting systems of the body. They have just 1 ingredient—lemon is just cold pressed lemon rinds. Frankincense, is resin—properly steam distilled at the right temperature to make essential oil. Lavender—freshly distilled at the peak of the harvest—with thousands of uses in the home. Let us come alongside you and train you how to kick chemicals to the curb. You can DO this.
Start by heading to youngliving.com, click on “Become a Member” and enter the sponsor and enroller number of the person who introduced you to the oils. (If you’re reading this book and don’t have a support system, go ahead and use my number—12957637–in both lines. It’s an honor to have you on our Anointed Oils 7 team! Welcome. I’m glad you’re investing in your family!)
Once you have put in the sponsor and enroller number, it will take you to a second page and ask for personal information where you’ll set up your account. Write it all down so you’re able to log in later. The third page asks which starter kit you want. My personal favorite is the Rain-Stone diffuser with the premium starter kit. If your budget is tight, the home diffuser works wonderfully too. I’d also encourage you to sign up for Essential Rewards. You get to pick the oils that come to your door every single month, you switch them out—and you get paid 10% back for everything you order in new oils. That’s 10% back on your laundry soap and dish soap and Thieves cleaner—which is all I use to clean my house. It’s one of the best choices I ever made. If you’d like to add that to your order, I recommend the Thieves Essential Rewards kit—because in one swoop, it contains just about all you need to get rid of nearly every chemical cleaner in your home. It’s simple and easy. And if you’re taking chemical free living head on, it’s the best place to start.
The final window asks for payment, and you’re off and running. We’re honored to have you as a part of this team. Look for a welcome package in the mail! Connect with us online at Anointedoil7.com or AnointedOil7 on Facebook. Find more resources at Oilabilityteam.com
This is something you NEED to take seriously. No one is watching your home but you. You are the gatekeeper. And I’d be willing to bet my life that there are things in your home right now that you’re exposed to every single day—that could be killing you. And the thing is, it’s totally preventable.
What do you do until the box arrives?
Start small. Start slow. Start with what you’re convicted on. Let me give you a simple tip. With your food, flip the labels over and start reading the ingredients. If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it. It doesn’t mean you can’t have ice cream—just go for the ice cream with milk, sugar, eggs, and vanilla instead of an ingredients list of 35 items you can’t pronounce.
With your home, start with the biggest offenders first—laundry soap, dishwasher soap, cleaning supplies, candles, and plug-ins. Toss the candles and plug-ins. Swap them out with a diffuser and a pure essential oil. Young Living has oil infused Thieves cleaner, Laundry soap, and dish soap—that’s affordable and simple to use. Add them to your Essential Rewards order once you have that starter kit.
This is about small, simple, baby steps. Take it one month at a time, and swap things out in your home. Maybe the first month you focus solely on Thieves cleaner and toss your cleaning supplies. You can start that today by grabbing a $22 bottle of Thieves cleaner. Go home and wipe your kitchen down and fall in love—knowing you just gave a boost to your immune system instead of taxing your liver.
The next month, swap out some laundry soap or dish soap. Month 3, focus on your personal care products—deodorant, shampoo. Month 4, beauty supplies—like face wash. Every day you leave your makeup on, your skin ages by 7 days. Use a chemical free option to get it off. The Young Living ART line is great.
I just started this journey with a Young Living starter kit, and have never looked back. We use the oils every single day in our home. Every oil you use is a chemical you’re not using.

You are the gatekeeper of your home. Only you control what crosses the threshold of your doorway. You alone are responsible for the health and safety of your family within the 4 walls of your house. You can say NO. It’s time to start kicking chemicals out of your home. To get a starter kit, we’ve set up a station where you can sign up right now, and we are here to help navigate the website for you. We will walk you through every step.
