Happy Hormone Spray

I'm an absolute endocrine system freak. I suffer from autoimmune disease and work really hard to stay on top of wellness and to prevent my kids from going down this road, too.

Long ago I got the cute colorful trees that hung in my car so it smelled like a big, fat Christmas cookie. Or those sprays I bought to use in the bathroom to have floral scented poop, yum! How bout those plug ins so the entire fall season smelled like apples in my classroom when I taught?! Those days are gone however, cause I got smart. Or maybe I should say I got Hashimotos Thyroid Disease so I had to smarten up.

Synthetic smells are bad for humans on many levels. This is especially true if we have young people in our house who systems are developing. It's super important for the air in our houses to be as pure and natural as possible.

We are so fortunate now to have a lot of choices for keeping our endocrine system happy. These days there is a plethora of essential oil companies out there with their diffusers and starter kits but you can also do it on your own much more affordably. I switch my smells up now and then but the core of my air fresheners in my bathroom and workout studio usually consist of: lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, peppermint and frankincense. Keep your surroundings smelling clean and keep your hormones on the right track by making your own tailored spray. Simply measure 1 part witch hazel to 3 parts water and add 10 drops of each oil of your choosing. It's that easy!
