Simple Ways to Reduce Toxins in Your Home

Reduce your toxin exposure by making some simple one by one changes each week! Make changes that can only benefit your family!

~ Use a water filter for your tap water. No need for bottled water.
~ Switch to laundry washer balls or a non scented, non-dyed detergent and throw out dryer sheets for once and for all. I got rid of them years ago. You can use dryer balls or nothing! Yes, nothing. I do that and rarely ever have static cling anymore.
~ Buy organic in-season fruits and veggies. Grow your own too!
~ Buy organic versions of cereals, mac and cheese, etc. Usually there are store brands same price or less than non organic big names
~ Switch to organic skincare, bath and body etc ( Neal’s Yard Remedies has you covered there!)
~Same for make up
~Choose mineral, non nano sunscreens with no chemicals like oxybenzone
~ Detox and glow by adding superfoods to your day.
~ Ditch any candles or air fresheners like plugins and use essential oils in a diffuser or NYR’s reed diffuser and candles. (Use caution around pets and babies*)
~Shop at your local farmer’s markets
~Use essential oil roll ons or make your own perfume rather than chemical based ones
~Throw out antibacterial whatevers! NYR makes a great hand spray, safe for the whole family. Stop drying out your hands with alcohol!
~ Put live plants in your house to detox the air.(sadly, my cats destroy mine so I can’t do it)
~Make your own cleaners. Use essential oils. Use vinegar and baking soda. Many options here!
~Get rid of teflon pans and use safer non stick kinds like staineless steel and cast iron.
~Switch deodorants( NYR has spray deodorants and roll ons) and never use antiperspirants which “clog” you up. We are supposed to sweat to remove toxins!
