Absolutely loving my new @dazzle_dry nail kit! I needed a break from gels, my nails were getting damaged and all the toxins aren’t the best. I heard about @dazzle_dry and their non toxic system of polish that lasts up to 14 days! I’m the queen of chipping my polish so this is absolutely perfect. We don’t even think about all the everyday toxins we are exposing ourselves to. Every little change counts! They have such amazing colors so check them out. I brought the whole kit to my nail place and they were able to use it. You can use code ALEXCURTIS4DD for 20% off

Best oils for healthy hair by the lovely @essentiallymindfulmom
I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on my hair recently, so I thought I’d share the best oils for healthy hair care. Essential oils are found in much lower grade quality in most shampoos and conditioners sold on the shelf.
Have you ever used a certified PURE therapeutic grade oil on your hair? The difference is huge. Hope this guide helps you to find a place to start if you’re looking to improve your hair and scalp! .

Ahhhhhhh I’ve been so excited to post about these cleaning products I think I’m gonna pass out 😂🤪 Ok so — Especially now that I have a bebe, I feel so so so passionate about keeping only clean, healthy, cruelty free cleaning products in your home.

They are full of healthy, eco, and kind cleaning and hygiene products (think eco-friendly razors to organic glass cleaner to walnut sponges to vegan body wash), and are the easiest way to make the vegan/cruelty-free/non-toxic switch when it comes to these types of products. 📲 Sign up today via the link in my bio and get a free Mrs. Meyers gift set + glass spray bottle ($40 value!!!) with your first order...

Dryer Sheets vs. Dryer Balls 🏐
One of my new years resolutions is to start switching over to a mainly non-toxic household. I have been educating myself on the harmful effects of common household products & surprisingly dryer sheets (i.e. Bounce, Fleecy, etc.) are pretty high on the ‘harmful for you’ list.
A study that looked at the volatile organic compounds (VOC) in several common scented household products (cleaning supplies, air fresheners, laundry detergents, fabric softeners, dryer sheets, dish soap, etc.) & found 133 VOC in 25 different products, 24 of which are considered to be toxic or hazardous, & according to the U.S Environmental Protection Agency, have “no safe exposure level.” Also only 1/133 VOC was actually listed on the label! 😦
Another study discussed the link between the effects of these fragranced products & their association with migraines, asthma attacks, respiratory & neurological issues, mucosal responses, & contact dermatitis. ❌
So what can you use instead? DRYER BALLS 🏐
Grab yourself 3 dryer balls & put a few drops of your favourite essential oil (I love lavender) on them, then throw them in the dryer with your clothes! They can be used multiple times & contain NO harmful carcinogenic, endocrine disruptors, etc.!✅
Potera C. (2011). Scented products emit a bouquet of VOCs. Environmental health perspectives, 119(1), A16. .
Steinemann A. (2016). Fragranced consumer products: exposures and effects from emissions. Air quality, atmosphere, & health, 9(8), 861-866.
Does it spark joy? 😌
Essential oil accessories shouldn't just organize your oils and make them more accessible - they should help your space feel like your own and bring you joy! ✨
