Toxins to be aware of and remove: 1. DEA (Diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine), TEA (Triethanolamine) - Cancer causing agents, Liver&Kidney cancer. Found in Shampoos, soaps, bubble baths and facial cleansers.
2. FD&C Color Additives: Most color additives are coal based and known to be carcinogenic. FD&C Red #4 is no longer available in use of foods because it is a known threat to adrenal glands and urinary bladder.
3. Fragrance: (Watch the Documentary "Stink") Fragrance is a catchall for nearly 4,000 different ingredients that do not need to be disclosed. They can range from mild irritants to allergies, asthma to being full carnicogenic. Found in so many products - deodorants, detergents, dryer sheets (the most toxic thing in your home!), shampoos, conditioners, cosmetics, skin care and most body care products. Ditch scented candles! That is a huge, endocrine disruptor and puts load on the respiratory system that contributes to allergies, asthma bouts, etc.,
4. Parabens/Phthalates - EU banned them in 2003. These are in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, hair sprays, nail polish, perfume.
5. PEG/PEO or POE (Polyethylene Glycol) in toothpastes, creams, personal lubricants, cleaners, laxatives. Linked to increased risks of uterine, breast, brain cancer and leukemia.
6. Petrolatum - This binds to the DNA resulting in mutations and cancer.
7. Propylene Glycol - make up, toothpaste, gels, deodorant. - Irritant and can cause contact dermatitis.
8. SLS Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate - Surfactant, emulsifying agent and degreaser. This is most anything that foams or creates a slippery effect. This makes it useful for cleaning engines, but not so great on the largest organ of our body, the skin. You find it in laundry detergents, soap, make up, shampoos, conditioners and many personal care products and home cleaning products. The EPA has states that this is a "probable human carcinogen".
9. Triclosan - Was reported to the FDA back in the 1970's as a possible cancer causing agent, but finally removed from shelves in antibacterial soaps just a few years ago. This can also be found in toothpaste.
10. Talc - Found in baby and adult powders, make up, foundation and deodorants. One of the largest companies providing talc products were found liable for knowingly selling a product that caused ovarian and testicular cancer.
Things that can help you remove toxins from your home:
1. Start reading labels and being aware of the products that are currently in your home. Seek out alternatives. Sean and I have you covered! We can point you in an easy direction.
2. Get your water tested and obtain proper filtration for drinking and home use.
3. Drink water from glass containers. Ditch the plastic. Not only is it great for sustainability, but it removes potential estrogenics that leach from plastic bottles.
4. Change out home food plastic to glass. Keep leftovers in glass containers and not plastic.
5. Switch out as much organic food as possible. This generally won't be 100% because of restaurants etc., but you will start to feel better.
6. Limit canned and processed food. Try to cook as much as possible on stove and limit microwave use. Microwaves kill anything beneficial nutrients in the food.
7. Diffuse essential oils to help clean off cell receptor sites to help cleanse and eliminate toxic build up in the cells.
8. Switch out toxic products for nontoxic products. An easy switch is to ditch the toxic cleaners and use Thieves Household cleaner. I use it for everything in our home: granite countertops, furniture, bathrooms, floors, windows etc., Dump toxic dryer sheets and use wool balls in the dryer with drops of your favorite Young Living essential oils. Make or purchase laundry detergent. Thieves Laundry detergent is something that is an easy switch.
9. Switch and replace as you run out of your personal care products, toothpastes, shampoos, soaps etc., Add a diffuser with YLEOs to add in that preferred scent that actually helps your body rather than putting toxic load on it.
10. Understand that any little step is important in your journey to wellness. Any little change will help improve your environment. Live empowered in knowledge, research and understand that we are our biggest and best advocates to a healthy lifestyle. You don't have to live in darkness, frustration, anxiety and fear.

Okay, we've got Stacey Morris here, Stacy, can you give us a quick background on yourself before we get started talking about toxicity in the home and how you can prevent that.
Stacy Morris 0:11
I'm, I'm a mom. But I've been on this wellness journey for the last seven years, removing toxins and just keeping myself aware of what is actually going on in my home, what I'm actually bringing in on my home. And those are things that I wanted to share with you, our family has been the healthiest in the last seven years, just because of the simple steps that we've taken to remove the toxins and just change just tweak a little bit of of how we look at products, and how we understand research products. So I'm excited to be able to share that with you
Sean Morgan 0:44
today. Awesome. Yeah, this is something I'm really passionate about, you know, unfortunately, the system, society, the the infrastructure, our food systems, are building materials and everything that we use to for our homes and our workplaces. And our diets and restaurants and even infrastructure, like using cars and going going places and everything. It's all done without consciousness on what's optimal for the human body. And it could be even worse than that. It could be that there are people who are actually have some kind of incentive to keep our keep us down, keep keep us unhealthy. You know, the pharmaceutical companies benefit when we're unhealthy, the healthcare industry benefits when we're unhealthy. So it does make you wonder, Is there even an agenda to make us unhealthy?
Stacy Morris 1:48
Well, and there is truth to that you can research if you go back to the Jekyll Island in 1913. And understand the the what they were doing at that particular time, as they were creating. And this all goes down to the things that you're led of is the truth. Let's find out what the truth of the matter is. Let's take that truth and let's make better decisions. Knowing what is you know, what is, is the whole truth in 1913. Essentially, as we see the ushering of a Fed Jekyll Island does a book that you can research and you can research these topics and I want, I want no one to take my word for this. I want people to do their do the exercise of digging on your own, be empowered to know that you have the answers to take control of your family's health and what you bring in your home. Yes, there's, there's these agendas, and yes, there are certain things that might be happening. But ultimately, we have to take personal responsibility for the things that we purchase, and the things that we bring in our home. And I'm hoping to be able to give you that information, to be able to be more empowered when you go to the grocery store. When you buy things online and understand that really, there is no benefit to us being healthy as a population. You know, we all have no idea Shawn you're young. But I remember my grandmother, they lived on a ranch and a farm and they picked everything that they had. They knew exactly, it was a farm to table everything. And it was it was what a lot of us are striving to get back to because we understand that that was really truth. And now we all live in cities, we live in the suburbs, we live in different things. So that's not always. I mean, we can't always do that. But we can make little teeny steps, little things make a big difference. And my thing is, if you're stepping in the right direction, that you are taking one step and you're being empowered to be to being healthy for your family. In 1976, there was an the toxic act, and let me just be very specific so that I have it here. It's the toxic the federal Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, and a grandfathered in 60,000 chemicals, it grandfathered in, they did not mean to say whether they were healthy, or whether they could be used or anything like that. So what we find is we find that, um, you know, 60,000 that's, that's huge. It's we find little bits of things that we bring into our home. And it's not shocking that when 95% of the cancers that we find are environmental based. So what that means is we are unknowingly doing this to ourselves because of choices, okay? Because of the choices that we make because
Sean Morgan 4:40
we unconsciously go to the grocery store by cleaning supplies for a home and we just assume Hey, this stuff has to be pretty safe. Otherwise, you know people don't know whatever
Stacy Morris 4:52
it's on the shelf. There's a government regulatory body that tells us that it's safe. Well really wouldn't safe is that puts you Killer chemical has gone through a scientific lab screening and testing and it doesn't kill a rabbit. That's the testing is it doesn't kill if ingested, that portion does not kill, that doesn't mean there's not side effects. It just means that it's not killing an animal, okay for testing, but it only does it in one solitary test that doesn't have all the, you know, 59,009 other chemicals together. And so when you find something under your shelf, or when do you find something, there's, there's a story of women put on 300 chemicals before they're even done, you know, getting ready for the day, you know, the shower, the soap, the conditioner, the body wash, the perfume, the makeup, all of those things, right? accumulate to what we call body. It's bio accumulation,
Sean Morgan 5:56
okay, then people wonder why they have acne and skin conditions and all these problems?
Stacy Morris 6:02
Exactly. You are so right, because what happens is, is anything that's created in the lab has to be filtered through our liver and our kidneys. And when our care liver is like going, whoa, wait a minute, it expresses that through our skin. So we have rashes, we have allergies, we have all these different things. And we go what is happening to us, and we don't realize because of this particular, you know, laundry detergent, or this particular laundry sheet, or a body cologne or soap that we've added into our home, we don't recognize because it's safe, right? It's on the shelves. You know, we don't realize it one of the bigger things like I want you to Google sodium lauryl sulfate or SLS, okay, that was developed to be an engine degreaser Do you want to on the largest organ on your body, that is your skin, your skin is the largest organ in our body, what
Sean Morgan 6:56
kind of products are those in engine degreaser,
Stacy Morris 7:00
tie, sorry, laundry detergent, anything, soaps, Mm hmm. Any like any of the liquid laundry, soap, soap. And really what I want, and I know this sounds overwhelming. But again, take this a little bit at a time. And you can do this just with the things that you find under your sink, look at the label, and find out if you do if you do not know what that ingredient is, google it or DuckDuckGo it or Search it up and find out what that is, and find out what the side effects are. I'm going to go over a couple of different things, I want to talk to you about the things that you should be aware of. So that as you're going through and you're looking at your labels, you can go I don't want this anymore. And there are options that will will provide for you. And there's a lot of options. And we're going to talk about also green, green scaping to where you've got this wonderful small company that provides these natural products that are fabulous. And they get really well known, and then a larger company comes in and buys them. Okay, so that's so they come in, they change the they change the recipe, because it's more cost effective. And they start adding chemicals in when they've already you know, they've already got goodwill, because they're a good product, and you unwillingly start doing that. So being aware of the companies that have gone through that process is important as well. So again, it's really waking ourselves up to being empowered to know what we should be bringing into our homes, the little small changes that we can make, it does not have to be complicated.
Sean Morgan 8:42
This is like the matrix where people are really busy, they're really tired, they're working nine to five, they've got kids, they're trying to take care of all their responsibilities. They just want to go to the grocery store, pick stuff out and come home. And so that's like sleepwalking, that's that's being in the matrix and not realizing that that's the state of mind and state of being that you're most able to be manipulated into doing things that are harmful to you and your family. It's that looking up those words on the label are only going for natural products. Like in Brazil, where I live with my wife, we use vinegar a lot for cleaning, so it's just part of their culture in Brazil. And so that has taught me there can do a lot, but you're gonna tell us literally the top 10 things that we can do to have a healthier home first.
Stacy Morris 9:40
Yes, absolutely. But I just want to just want to start off with when when when we have questions about fertility when we have questions about oh my gosh, now I have I'm dealing with some sort of cellular issue of skin cancer or cancer of any sort, and endocrine disrupters. So we've got you know, I don't know anybody that doesn't have a thyroid problem. Well, it's because we've allowed ourselves to just buy what's convenient.
Sean Morgan 10:02
And so be NASA is the killer?
Stacy Morris 10:04
Yeah, we have to, we have to participate in that. So the top 10 things that we can do is is, one is have our water tested making sure that you know, we we have clean water, and also understanding that water is great clean water is fabulous water bottles and plastic. Okay, so some of the biggest things that we're finding is is high estrogen levels. So high estrogen levels, especially in women is not a good thing. Okay, we know that high estrogen levels can lead to some breast cancers. And
Sean Morgan 10:37
Stacy Morris 10:38
Yeah, absolutely. And so and so. Yes, the estrogenic. So when we get water in a plastic water bottle, it's convenient. Yes. But And not only is it you know, we talk from it from a you know, it's not great for our environment, and plastics and everything degrade, but that plastic is leaching into the water. Yeah, I never thought about that. Oh, my gosh, what is that doing to work in the world levels? Can you tie things in society as to what what that is done to us?
Sean Morgan 11:12
Right? Actually, I've got I've gotten so sensitive, that I can taste the difference between water from a glass bottle and water from a plastic bottle,
Stacy Morris 11:20
right? You know, sometimes we can't help it. But it's certainly you can we can make those choices when we have the opportunity to make those choices. You know, and it's just an it's, I mean, it's up yourself up if you're not 100%, or whatever. It's, again, making little teeny steps and moving in the right direction. and reading labels and asking questions. So going through finding out the things that you currently have that currently left if you can do organic food, organic is organic, and is the best way to do it. Don't get stuck in a non GMO thing. The non GMO thing is basically it's in organic seeds that are non GMO. Okay, so they're still using so that's a that's kind of a confusion.
Sean Morgan 12:05
Yeah, this act like they're so great. They just,
it's not non GMO, they
slap a label, like gluten free, and they think that you're gonna think it's all natural or something. But right,
Stacy Morris 12:14
exactly organic is where you want to where you want to do it. And you know, they say that, you know, you still have to be of course, you still have to be careful of the companies that you're buying organic from. So we have done this as far as our home we have, most of the things that we have that we eat are organic. And if you're looking at meat, you want to have grass fed and grass finished. Okay, so grass fed isn't is great. But grass fed doesn't necessarily mean it means that they're as they're alive. But when they're going to the slaughterhouse. They're feeding them normal stuff.
Sean Morgan 12:47
So we're giving them GMO corn.
Stacy Morris 12:50
Correct? Correct. So you want grass fed and grass finished. So if you can find a local farmer that's local to you to smoke, you're when you're promoting a small business, and you're helping having a better solution. So I'm in the United States, I'm in Texas, and I and I would say and this is kind of girly stuff. So if you need to cover your sheet carriers, but most girls start their cycle, when they're in the US, probably around 12, to 13 to 14, I have a friend this is again, this is my testimony. This isn't any scientific experience, experiment. But I have a friend who is very particular about the hormones that she gives in food to her kit, her girls, her girls didn't start their cycles until they were 18 and 19 years old, I thought that was like whoa. So if you're very conscious, and you know, as girls, you know, it's kind of sticky, sometimes it's going through some of those things. So if you're having hormone problems or hormone balances, make sure that you're understanding the milk, the meats that you're bringing in, if you're bringing if you're eating meat, you know, we were made to eat protein, our bodies were made to eat protein. So there's some people that you know, it just is a personal preference. Um, you know, and it can be a spiritual and
Sean Morgan 14:08
they give the animals hormones, so you have to be careful, right?
Stacy Morris 14:12
Yeah, correct. So anytime you can use that use instead of my, my dad was a saver so I grew up where he would have the sorry,
Unknown Speaker 14:28
had an alarm.
Stacy Morris 14:30
And my dad was a plastic saver. So he what he would do is he would save everything and reuse it into plastic. I've switched out all of my plastic food savings to glass. You can find glass you can find glass with with some heavy duty plastic covering that's not going to touch the food. But those are little simple things that you can transfer in your home that make a huge difference. You're not getting that off sloughing of throw in your feet. Yeah, yeah. And it's just makes it really nice.
Sean Morgan 15:02
Um, that's what we do we store some bulk food and some glass containers and it's actually kind of part of the the kitchen design now it's beautiful.
Stacy Morris 15:09
Yeah, absolutely. And then also, what you can do is of course diffuse essential oils by cleaning off our receptor sites. By diffusing citrus essential oils, you are cleaning off those toxins that get stuck in it. Those are endocrine disruptors. So anytime we have any, and this is can be environmental, this can be things that we bring in our home, all of those things, we can easily remove them and cleanse them with using a good quality. Now, of course, you and I are both fans of Young Living, um, to be able to go in and to to help kind of with that detoxification process. And so that's one of the things you can certainly do, and just really learning again, looking on the back of your labels. Um, I can go over and through the top things that you might want to take a look at, as far as chemicals. Did you want to do that?
Sean Morgan 16:05
Okay, go ahead.
Unknown Speaker 16:06
Stacy Morris 16:08
I have my list here, because I want to make sure because this that, you know, there's a reason why it's confusing. And it's on purpose, it's to keep us separated from understanding exactly what is in our products. And so by us being empowered to be able to search about exactly what's in our products is important. Um, da, M, EA and T EA are all cancer causing agents. So if you see diet fan of mine, benomyl, line, Moto E, phenol in line, and I will I will print this out so that you can have this and try phenolphthalein. If we remember in the US, there was a product that was in toothpaste, I think it still might be in some toothpaste, but definitely in antibacterial soaps. It was called triclosan. Okay, triclosan is still in some toothpastes. treichel sand was they had in 1972 72, you have to take a look. Back in the 70s, they have reported it to the FDA as saying that it was cancer causing agent, okay. Three years ago, it was taken off Finally, so 3540 years, it was in our, our, you know, our food supply, our personal care products, these are things that drive me crazy, because, you know, we are paying our governments and our agencies to protect us. And unfortunately, it's not happening. So we have to be empowered
Sean Morgan 17:53
this, this can start to get you really angry, when you start realizing that these these are things these are poisons. And so it gets to the point where you just want to make a radical change, you just say, hey, if there's a word that I can't pronounce, in my food supply, or in my personal care products, I shouldn't be putting it in my family and my family's bodies,
Stacy Morris 18:15
right. And so some of the things that we're finding is one a big a big, a huge one. And there's that there's a documentary called stink is fragrance. So fragrance, anytime you see a product that has fragrance is basically a protected corporate recipe, they do not need to disclose the chemicals that caused that fragrance. So by just going through and eliminating everything you have in your home with fragrance, oh my gosh, you'd be surprised at at the huge benefits.
Sean Morgan 18:54
Right? And that's why that's where essential oils come in. Because Can you imagine anything better for cologne or perfume than the essence of flowers and fruits and these wonderful, medicinal type of plants?
Stacy Morris 19:10
Right? Well, and you're finding out like, not only am I putting something on my body that doesn't eat me, that doesn't give me cancer, but actually helps my body systems. So when we're using orange or reusing the Rolly which is orange blossom, you know, in a in a soap or a perfume or anything like that, when we're putting on our body is actually helping us and it's not, you know, adding on to I mean, the personal care, the woman's personal care products that we find out there. You know, as women, you know, we get to a certain age and we're trying to make things better, you know, and, unfortunately, those fragrance and those of those products actually diminish and actually hurt our skin. And they actually cause the things that they're trying to promote, you know, the beneficial the beauty The less wrinkles, loose things. So there's other options that you can do that are healthy that actually radiate and make your skin just amazing and beautiful. So don't think that by taking these steps that you have to give up anything, you certainly know you're actually gaining. Absolutely, absolutely. You're absolutely gaining. You know that health and wellness and you're feeling better, and you're realizing that, you know, you don't know what you don't know. And when you're stuck in the mire of the frustration and everything you don't, you're insulated, and you're insular in your world. And when you get, um, it's amazing with essential oils, there's such a truth. There's such unlocking, there's such an awakening, to understanding that connection with spirit, connection with God. And that's what I think has been the most beneficial for me and my
Sean Morgan 20:54
Yes, not only, that's the interesting thing that you could never predict or never really put into words with essential oils, but when you start using them, you feel connected to nature, in a very intimate way. You're breathing it in, you're you feel it's a part of you, you feel it's like it's almost like a kiss when you when you inhale something beautiful, like wonder flower blossom. Yeah, it's, it's an amazing connection to nature that you cannot describe unless you experience it.
Stacy Morris 21:26
It's definitely an experiential thing. And it's a frequency thing. And that's increasing that frequency. And when our frequency is high, then we don't get what's going around. And that's what I love about it is it's all interconnected and intermingled, and it's taking that one step to be empowered into what you're bringing into your home. So I hope this information has helped you. I'll provide a little bit of event maybe we can do this again. But I this is my passion. I love doing it because I certainly wasn't there and just that awakening portion for me is just, it's such a blessing. It's such a blessing.
Sean Morgan 22:03
Yeah, there's actually a wellness journey presentation that you and your husband created, where you you take people step by step to understand what are the different steps you go through of educating yourself and go through a process and actually throwing out a lot of chemicals that are in your house and replacing them with natural ones. So I'll put a link below where people can buy essential oils where they can see that presentation and thank you for your time.
Stacy Morris 22:31
