Blame it on the Petrochemicals.

Blame it on the Petrochemicals.

Okay, there are so many things wrong with this picture; but for now we’ll focus a bit under the obvious.  Have you ever wondered how seemingly fit people have clusters of cellulite on their hips, thighs, buttocks, stomachs, sides, and even backs?  Cellulite is not just fat.  Aside from the usual 21st century culprits of diet and stress, much can be blamed on the petrochemicals…

“Petrochemicals build up in the body over time from exposure to the toxins found in personal care products, household cleaners, over-the-counter and prescription medicines and facial cosmetics.

They gravitate to organs and fat cells and often show up as ugly “cellulite.” But even worse, petrochemical accumulation in the body creates an optimal environment for cancer cells to take root and grow.”

Nature’s Secret for Cellulite

What can we Do?

Be proactive and watch what you eat, drink, touch and allow to touch you.  Consider converting your home into a truly healthy one by removing any and all toxic products.  Sound easier said then done?  I agree, the process most often must be gradual as removing any and everything from our home {kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, garage, bedrooms, closets, pantries, cabinets, and cupboards} would leave most bare.  But we can create dramatic change by replacing the little things that we have the most intimate contact with and have the greatest impact.  First, consider replacing:

Home Cleaning Products:

We’re obsessed with clean.  We need to see the shine, smell the fragrance, and feel the germs being killed as our chests heave for air and  tears roll down our faces.  If only we realized just how far out we’re rolling in the deep all in the name of this chemical clean.  Somewhere along the line we have been convinced that in order to clean “for real”, effectively, it must hurt.  Well it is.

But it doesn’t have to be…  Switch to a 100% plant based non-toxic, chemical free, all-purpose household cleaner that is formulated to effectively disinfect.  Many store bought green cleaners are just that.  They have just enough plant based compounds and few enough non plant based compounds to receive the green seal of approval.  Sure they clean, but are they all that you desire in a cleaner in terms of performance and overall experience?  Do they have everything you’re looking for in a non-toxic chemical free cleaner?  If we’re going green, we might as well go all the way.

At Life Enhancement by Genies we have totally gone all the way and holistically Lapsed to Luxury by cleansing your residences exclusively with Thieves Household Cleanser from Young Living; and highly recommend you do the same.  According to historical accounts from 14th century France, a band of thieves robbed the dead and dying plague victims after covering themselves with various aromatic oils such as cinnamon and clove and never became ill.  When they were captured, they were forced to divulge their secret formula.  Young Living’s Thieves essential oil blend is based on this ancient account.

Combining pure clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and eucalyptus essential oils the Thieves blend has been university tested and proven to be 99.9% effective at killing airborne bacteria.   I’ve personally found this blend to be quite energizing.  Finally, or should I say once again, the process and aftermath of cleaning helps instead of hurts!

Personal Care Products:

Switch the shampoos, conditioners, hand purifier, soaps &  body & mouth wash, toothpaste, floss, body lotions, fragrances, facial cleansers, moisturizer, lip balms, and creams; and ladies, as many color cosmetics as you can.  Opt for a full line of mineral foundation, eye, and cheek color makeup products.  What about the medicine cabinet?  Permanently substitute the over the counter pain pills and rubs, cold syrups and salves for a cabinet not so full with therapeutic essential oil; most working more widely, quickly and effectively then your current stock pile.

This is the one lifestyle change often met with the most resistance.  After all, most of us have been using the same tried and true products for basically ever and it’s not like your consuming it, right?  Wrong!  While we would never imagine stirring up our favorite conditioner on the rocks and kicking it back we do so whenever we groom with our beloved toxic products, in lower doses.  These toxins seep in through our pores, the head happening to be the most porous, and leave behind the petrochemicals causing our cellulite.

Now, there are delectable, non-toxic personal care products on the market that work; but make sure they are made from 100% pure plant oils.  We want it straight.  Not just a little of the good stuff and whatever else to fill up the bottle or tube.

Kitchen Ware & Food:

We are what we eat and do take in anything we eat out of.  With this being said it is time to turn our attention to our kitchens, pantries, and cabinets.  A simple task list will suffice to safeguard ourselves against petrochemicals in the future.

  • Get rid of the toxic plastic.  Replace with glass, ceramic, or bamboo.
  • Assign a new Purpose to Aluminum Cookware outside of the Kitchen
  • Say No to Non-Stick
  • As you polish off your current food supply replace items with more healthful, natural and/or organic, where it makes $ense.  Gradually, you will see your home, body, and life change.

In the Meantime…

When dry brushing always remember to start lower and brush UP and around in a circular motion.  Always work in the opposite direction of gravity.
