Why I’m glad I use toxic-free dish soap and cleaning products

I am doing my 21 Day Fresh Health Start where we consume a special detox drink before each meal with raw apple cider vinegar and certain essential oils in my protocol.

71Sbf0AR0aL._SL1500_I make the drink in the silicone-wrapped glass water bottle from Ello.


I Took 8 (eight!) big gulps from my Ello glass bottle of the detox drink…or so I thought.

I forgot I was soaking the bottle with soap and water.

Eight big gulps of soapy water. Ugh!

I am thankful that I don’t use garbage chemical soaps like Dawn and Joy for my dish soap!




Do you use Dawn Dish Soap?

I had been soaking my glass bottle in Castile Soap with these ingredients:

  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Potassium Hydroxide (None Remains After Saponifying Oils Into Soap and Glycerin),
  • Organic Olive Oil
  • Organic Hemp Oil
  • Organic Jojoba Oil
  • Organic Peppermint Oil
