Healthy Homes

Do you want a healthy home without any nasty chemicals?A couple of years ago I was concerned what I was being exposed to and also what I was exposing my family to. I had noticed that so many people seem to be unwell, people around me were receiving an awful diagnosis.

I decided that I needed to educate myself on what I had been using in my home and personally too. What I use in my home was one thing I could control. Very quickly I started learning about the presence of synthetic cleaning chemicals and artificial substances in products that we use every day. If you want to do some research here which I highly recommend, the visit EWG to check out ingredients. This requires a bit of work. Anything above a 3, is worth steering clear of or minimising. The Chemical Maze book and App are also great. Thankfully I found these amazing products from Young Living. Their committment to purity was a clincher for me. Not only are they all plant based, there labelling is transparent, they source their ingredients sustainably and are committed to improving the health of the planet. Check out seed.to.seal

My aim is to help you ditch and switch. Are you ready? This is the perfect place to start, a Healthy Home Premium starter kit from Young Living

Mother’s Day is just around the corner..

For me living in Australia, Mother’s day is in a couple of weeks. I am not a big gifts person but when I do buy gifts I  think long and hard about what I am buying. I try to support small business and I also like to know what I am buying. After looking into toxins in my home and removing as many as possible, I like to gift things that I would be prepared to have in my home.  After all I don’t want to gift anything that will have a negative impact on the health of my friends and family members! Synthetic fragrances for me are a big no no. Along with the fact that I react to them quite badly, they are not good for our health. For years fragrances have been heavily marketed as the perfect gift, along with scented candles, body products.

The average woman applies between 9-15 products daily and can include over 100 chemicals. Unfortunately in Australia and the US many chemicals are used in personal products with out being tested, unlike the EU! Thankfully there are many companies doing great things with removing toxins from everyday products. You will find that these products are more expensive and that is because they have higher quality standards and don’t use mass produced synthetic products. Having said that I think I would prefer producst that were of high quality that are not full of toxins, wouldn’t you?

If you want to educate yourself consider buying the Chemical Maze Book  or download their app (aff) for your phone. This app has been a great educational tool I have used to educate my kids about what is in packaged food and for me  personal care products we use at our home. Unfortunatley labels can be misleading and the word Natural does not always mean that it is natural. It may include some natural ingredients. After reading a report by the EWG that painted a not so nice picture about what is actually in perfumes, I tossed all mine out. It felt criminal thinking how expensive they were but once I realised that they were full of synthetic chemicals they had to go. It pays to educate yourself. Ok enough of that

There are a few companies that I trust and buy from.   I use Young Living essential oils as my perfume now. Pure plant based essential oils, that smell amazing. Everyone deserves that. Aside from perfume, essential oils have many other benefits too. Think emotional support, toxin free cleaning solutions, natural fragrance for your home. There are many. Why not gift a Premium Starter kit?  Order yours here, once you have an account set up you can order in the future if you wish. However once you experience them I know you will LOVE them. Young Living is a global company, you don’t have to be in Australia to order! if you want more info read my essential Oils page here  let me know if you do as I would love to help show you how to use them.

If you have essential oils consider making a super simple gift or maybe an excellent treat for yourself.

Lavender Bath Salts

Lavender has been used relaxation and it also a great Essential Oil to use to help overcome feelings of anxiousness. Magnesium salts are a perfect addition to your bath as magnesium is an essential mineral required by every organ is your body. As our skin is our largest organ, it is readily absorbed in a bath and has numerous benefits. I certainly have a much better nights sleep after a magnesium bath. Use 1/4 -1/2cup per bath.

Add ingredients to a jar and shake to disperse the essential oil. It really is that simple

other companies I love ( that were both founded by women which is also great to see women doing well in business)

Nourished life is your home for

  • Make-up   I love the 100% Pure mascara. Smells like chocolate!
  • Nailpolish
  • eco friendly gift ideas
  • Gift vouchers- perfect gift for someone far away!

Biome is another famulous company that sells all sorts of eco friendly products. I love their

  • beeswax wraps
  • travel cups
  • Dr Libby weaver books- highly recommended
  • diy skin care ingredients
  • gardening accessories

and so much more

 

Most of all this Mother’s day take some time out for yourself whether you are a mother or not.  If you do buy a gift, make sure it a gift that is good for your health. I know that these are not the only choices out there but they are ones I can vouch for. I love that people are being more aware and are voting with their dollar.
