Get this....not that

It can be so confusing on what you should or shouldn't buy.
Here is a list of the most common items!

>salves:  oil infused beeswax or soy wax, olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter  NOT Vaseline
>mineral based sunscreen: zinc oxide &/or titanium oxide NOT oxybenzone sunscreens
>food grade diatomaceous earth NOT non-organic pesticides
>herbal chest vapor rub NOT Vick's chest rub has petroleum (oil) and turpentine oil
>10% vinegar NOT non-organic weed killer, non-organic antibacterial, non-organic house cleaner
>orange oil NOT non-organic degreaser
>organic lotions, hair care NOT  conventional personal care they contain parabens
    Why not?
    Petroleum Jelly: the name alone should be a clue.  Who wants petroleum, the bubbling crude on you?
    Oxybenzone in conventional sunscreen has been linked to allergies, hormone disruption, cancers.
    Conventional Pesticides have been linked to multiple cancers, ADD/ADHD, allergies, immune disorders.
    Conventional house hold cleaners and weed killers contain cancer causing agents, lung diseases.
    Degreasers contain petroleum: bad for the environment, bad for your skin it will absorb it into the joints, they are high in VOC and cause respiratory distress.
    Parabens are endocrine disruptor and mimic the release of estrogen causing breast cancer, along with causing early puberty, and also affect the thyroid and hypothalamus functions.
