I’m talking about a lot of healthy habits lately. One of my goals with doTERRA is to help you learn some good, solid, healthy habits.

Today, I wanted to share something that I use with my family that has made such a big difference for my skin, hair and body overall.

Recently, we bought a cabin and it has its own well and we’ve been loving the well water. Since I’ve started using and drinking it, my skin and body have felt noticeably different.

Back home in Atlanta, our water has a bunch of chemicals added to it and I started to notice that I tend to get a little bit itchy after I shower – and I don’t have any skin issues that would cause that.

So I decided to give something a try that my friend recommended so I could cut down some of the chemicals going into my body.

These chemicals can affect our skin, hormones, etc. All of that adds up and the less toxins we can take in the better. Even the air we breathe is filled with toxins so we can’t get rid of it completely.

(But if you’re diffusing essential oils, you’re putting good things into the air. Candles, air fresheners, etc. are just putting more toxic chemicals in the air.)

So, what am I using in the shower? A high output shower filter. I got this on Amazon. It had thousands of great reviews.

Especially if you have skin issues, this is for you. It filters out all of the chemicals that are in our water. Our skin is our biggest organ and it absorbs everything. That means that every time you shower, it’s absorbing everything from the water.

The fact that I did so much work to reduce chemicals in my house but then stand in the shower and take in chemicals every day.

What have I noticed at home in Atlanta since I started using this filter? My hair feels fuller and cleaner. My skin not itchy anymore when I get out of the shower. I even feel cleaner – I don’t know how, but I do. Now I’m ordering it for every shower in my house.

It’s just one more choice that I’m making that’s going to compound with all the other choices that I’m making for a healthier life.

Anything that disrupts our hormones, anything that disrupts our gut, is not a good thing. We want to do everything we can to keep everything healthy.

So that is my tip for you: invest in a shower filter. It’s not that expensive and you can purchase refills and those refills last for 6 months of showers. Then you’ll know that you’re putting nice filtered water on your skin in the shower.

I’ll be back again soon with more healthy habit information!
