It is the first of October and I am officially drinking nothing but Pumpkin Spiced Lattes until January 2020. Anyone else? I am also equally obsessed with having my home smell like fall, but this year without the toxic chemicals.
During Autumn/Winter the air quality in our homes plummet as we close the windows, crank up the heating and crack open the scented candles. Yes even your favourite mulled wine ones.
Why? Because candles, reed diffusers, plug ins and aerosol air fresheners release synthetic fragrances and petrochemicals into the air. Because we are ventilating our homes less in the colder months, these chemicals fill our homes, fill our lungs, penetrate our fabrics and are absorbed into our blood stream. They enter ever fibre of our being, often affecting children, the elderly and animals the most.
Chemicals cause chaos in our bodies, sending our skin, our respiratory system, and our hormones into a tail spin as our body deals with the toxicity. And all for the sake of a sweet fragrance in the hallway.
When we know better, we do better, and I want to share with you how you can freshen your home effectively with nature.
Since 2017 we have been ditching and switching everything from cosmetics to cleaning supplies, and we have never felt better. We replaced my much-loved scented candles with a Dewdrop Diffuser and later an Aria Diffuser (pictured). We also replaced our bleach and surface sprays with Thieves Household Cleaner.
Starting a chemical free journey can be very daunting at first, but Young Living made it super simple for us. We became members with a Premium Starter Kit and began to use the oils to fragrance our home and boost our body systems. We then joined Essential Rewards, Young Living’s monthly subscription box to start adding new toxin-free products in to our daily routine. Over the course of three months it is possible to replace almost every chemical in your home with essential oil infused products, without breaking the bank.
We control what comes into our homes and onto our bodies, and onto our loved ones. If you want to know more about going chemical free please message me or click here I would love to help you ditch the junk for good.
