Well, there’s really no such thing as a completely toxin-free life…there will always be things we can’t avoid like car exhaust or public restrooms sprayed with Lysol. But we can live as close to toxin-free as possible, at least in our own homes!
The National Institute of Occupational Safety & Health studied 2,983 ingredients in our products at home and found 884 toxic ingredients. 314 of them caused biological mutations. 218 caused reproductive problems. 778 were toxic to the human body. 146 they knew caused cancer tumors — but were allowed in the United States, even though they were banned in other countries around the world. Many of these chemicals are allowed in common cleaning supplies in the United States — things under your cabinets right now.
You may think its inevitable; that you have to clean your house and wash your hands and moisturize, so you have to absorb and breath in chemicals, but you don’t. I’m going to show you your other options.
Visit the cabinets in your home and look up one of your store bought cleaning products on the EWG and check it’s score (A=safe to F= Really really really bad for you) http://www.ewg.org/guides/cleaners
Anything below a B should not be in your home because it could be hurting you and your family. There are better alternatives to every evil C-F rated product! Vinegar, baking soda, Castile soap, coconut oil and essentials oils (high quality only) are all amazing chemical replacements! I use vinegar, water and Lemon essential oil to clean my floors. Baking soda, arrowroot powder, coconut oil, Lavender essential oil and Tea Tree essential oil as deodorant. Coconut oil as makeup remover. Castile soap with Lavender and Frankincense essential oils as body wash. Peppermint essential oil, Raw sugar and almond oil as exfoliating shower scrub before shaving. Castile soap, water and Thieves essential oil in my foaming hand soap dispenser… And the list goes on! DIYing with essential oils is super easy and inexpensive! AND I KNOW there are no toxic manufactured chemicals in my home!! You can do it too! I know you can! I’ve showed lots of people how and I can show you too!
One of the most popular alternatives is Young Living’s Thieves cleaner because it is 100% plant based. How cool is that!? That’s an A+ rating! No SLS or fragrance that has been linked to asthma and other respiratory illness, JUST PLANTS! I use Thieves cleaner to clean my bathrooms, kitchen counters, oven, furniture, laundry stains, floors, etc and I can rest easy when my kids decide to spray everything in their little attempts to “help” me clean house because Thieves cleaner actually BOOSTS your immune system instead of hurting it!
It just doesn’t get any better than that.
