5 reasons I detoxed my home and 3 signals to look for when deciding on a safe cleaning product. When you’ve been to doctor after doctor after doctor and you still feel sick, you take measures into your own hands. So for me, detoxing my life, and more specifically my house, is one of many ways I am healing myself in 2019.
Reasons why I detox:
✨Science has found that the skin drinks 100% of the chemicals that you put on your body
✨Fragrant cleaning products are endocrine disruptors, which turn women and men’s hormones upside down
✨EPA registered pesticides (in sanitizers and disinfectants) create antibiotic resistance and superbugs
✨Fragrant cleaning products have neurotoxins, which affect the brain - more specifically mood, learning ability, depression, and effects of lowering IQ
✨Fragrant cleaning products have asthmagens in them, which cause asthma...the number one chronic illness in children
SIGNALS (starter kit). Here are some top tips on what to look for if you are thinking about bringing cleaning products into your home:
1.”Caution”- a lethal dosage would be an ounce to a pint
2.”Warning” - a lethal dosage is one teaspoon to one tablespoon
3.”Danger” - a lethal dosage would be three drops to a spoon
I’m a big believer in taking baby steps when making life choices, so I have done just that with detoxing my home. I will be posting a blog in the near future that will give a more in depth guide on what to look for in products and the safe products I use in my home.
