Cleansing Your Home of Toxic Chemicals

May is now here, and this is a great time for us to cleanse our space. I feel so much lighter when my house has less things in it, and when my closet is organized. I used to hear all the time that you can focus more when the space around you is organized. I truly get that now. I truly believe that when we strive to be more of a minimalist, we have more space for creativity to flow. Think about getting rid of toys your kids no longer use, old cloths you no longer wear, pots or pans that you no longer want, old electronics and so on. You can donate to a charity of your choice, and I guarantee you won’t miss those things. You get to create a sacred space that you will love. If you want more information on creating a sacred space, please let me know and I will connect you with my friend Paula who is wonderful at helping people with this.

Now once you have decluttered and given away things that no longer serve you, you can start to do the deep clean in your house. I absolutely love my space after I have deep cleaned it. The problem with deep cleaning is that most people use products filled with chemicals that are harmful to your health. I suggest switching over to products that are more natural. Look for products that do not contain perfumes, dyes, or synthetic ingredients. Many products promote themselves as natural and are not natural so it is important to be your own advocate. You can also use an app on your phone called Think Dirty to see the rating.

Here are a list of some of my favorite cleaning products that I use, and that are easily accessible on amazon:

The last thing I want to discuss with you is what you are breathing in in your home. This makes a huge difference for your health as well. If you use any perfume plug ins in your home, those are filled with harsh chemicals. I suggest getting an essential oil diffuser.

I own 5 of these and I diffuse oils all over my house. It helps my mood, creates a wonderful smell in my home, and benefits my health. You want to purchase good quality essential oils. I personally love Young Living Oils or Ver Vita Oils. If you were going to get one I would recommend purchasing Frankincense, as you can use this for so many various uses.

These oils smell amazing, can be used on your skin too, and are benefiting your health. My next recommendation is to get an air filter. I recently got my house tested for Mold– and if you are experiencing any health issues, I highly believe in getting your home tested. If you need to know more about mold toxicity, I am happy to help.

The mold inspector told me the most important thing for good air quality is getting an air purification system. I own the Air Doctor and have it running all the time. He tested it and said this is helping me have less bacteria in my air.

When I first started learning about all these chemicals and needing to switch over, it overwhelmed me. I tried to create this sheet for you so you can have easy access to information that I needed to research. Please do not get overwhelmed. Take it one step at a time, and each step you take you are saying YES to a healthier you.
