Can You Pronounce Those Toxic Words? Me Neither!

I get asked all the time what I purchase when I go shopping.  And when they ask, they ask for everything!  From food to personal care products and even household cleaners, I am constantly looking for healthy, and they know it.  Yup, I’m a toxic free junkie and I’m always reading my labels and researching words that I can’t pronounce!  I guess that’s why people who know me are always asking me about ingredients and labels.  With that being said, I have included in this post links and apps that I use on a regular basis to share with you.  We all need a little help when trying to decipher what those ingredients are and if you’re not a rocket scientist… well, you do like I do, use these resources to help you out.  Have a great day and keep reading those labels!
