When it comes to cleaning your household, what products you are using can impact your health outcomes without you even recognizing them! Making small changes with what we are using in our home can have a huge impact overtime. Maybe you have a lingering headache every time you light your favorite candle or start to have an increase in heart rate whenever you mop. Whatever it may be, the body is alerting you that you are having a REACTION to something. When we use these products that can be impactful overtime, symptoms come about that can seem to be untreatable (....but they are 😉 ).
It took us a while, and we continue to make more swaps, but here are some of our favorite products that we have made the switch to in our households:
When you light a candle, its aroma can evoke so much within. Whether it's a memory or person, a moment in time, or your favorite yummy scent. They're great, we totally get it. But when you are constantly breathing and absorbing formaldehyde and other toxins, it can be not-so great. We have done our research, and have found several trusted brands that create beautiful candles without the junk that can lift you up, put a smile on your face, and create the ambiance in any room: Be Blends, Oh Happy Day, Native Candle, and of course, our candles made by us!
We love using GrowFragrance air and fabric fresheners because they are non-toxic, plant-based, and safe pets, babies, and humans 😊 You can spray this in your car, room, office, without the headaches other products may cause. We love spraying it in our vacuum filter or in the trash can for a little boost!
