While we can’t completely control the toxins everywhere in the world on our own, we can aim for better and better, cleaner and more natural with the individual choices we make.
We can definitely create toxin-free homes full of fresh energy.
I’ve been doing this in layers for years. What started with shower water purifiers and water filters, natural cleaning products and natural bath products evolved into next layers of eco-friendly paint, piles of plants, emf blockers, aromatherapy… And then… And then… And then…
Each and every step toward a more toxin-free home is a major step, so please don’t be hard on yourself. The courage to start the journey is life-changing in itself.
There are a few habits that are more recent for me that have been making the non-toxic difference in my life and making for a happier home. I’m always excited to share these because I’ve come to see that even one small change can make a big difference!
SWAPPING ALL CFL bulbs for LED bulbs.
When I moved to my house that I rent, it was jam packed with Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs, aka the twisty looking bulbs with the worst light ever. Not only that– they are full of mercury and they are thought to send out tons of radiation into a space.
I felt a kind of sick and dizzy that I’d never felt before, then I spotted the bulbs and carefully, one by one, removed them from every single light fixture and replaced them with mercury free, eco-friendly full-spectrum LED lights.
What an instant transformation room-by-room as these got changed!
Also: before doing this, you have to find a local spot to safely recycle them. My local Home Depot does it for free, and that made it easier.
Bath Filters were the final frontier in my water filtration. Adding a tablespoon of vitamin C powder to the bath was a great step in the right direction to neutralize chlorine, it’s just not enough for me who loves to sit in baths for a long time.
Turns out, a single shower can fill your body with as much chlorine as drinking unfiltered tap water for a whole day.
And, the bath is a place we spend more time if you’re a bath person, so this was a very big deal.
Grab yourself a bath water filter and you’ll never look back. I’m testing a few before I endorse any, and I look forward to sharing the results!
POWER DOWN + UNPLUG ELECTRONICS.
It turns out, an enormous amount of Electromagetic Pollution is coming from our technology even when it’s turned off as long as it’s still plugged in.
Now, I unplug the computer at night, the TV monitor and other appliances that are easy to unplug. I can feel the increased calm, and I’ll take that as a win!
SHOES OFF AT HOME.
Shoes drag in tons of toxins, so, taking them off at the door can decrease the stray toxins in a house by 90%! To take this to the next level, wipe your pet’s paws after they come in from a walk! It’s better for them and for your home!
VINEGAR + WATER MOPPING.
White Vinegar is a part of my magic mopping solution. It both kills germs and takes negative energies from a space. I used to do 50/50 vinegar and water, but now I use a bit less vinegar and a splash of castile soap.
HERBAL TEA AROMATHERAPY.
I love using herbs for creating high vibes at home. Making thyme tea to drink also detoxing the energy in my kitchen!
Also, simmering some rosemary (fresh or dried) is awesome to clear the energy at home!
GLASS TUPPERWARE. (or… Mason Jars)
I stopped plastic storage of all kinds some time ago, and I feel so good about this switch. Glass lasts and lasts and doesn’t hold odors or bacteria.
USING CASTILE SOAP EVERYWHERE POSSIBLE!
I am a fan of creative uses of Castile soap. I love Dr. Bronner’s Rose and Lavender, but I’m always experimenting. HERE are some basic and creative ways to use it!
