Healthy Homes: Detox and Declutter
Research has shown that chemicals are present in the umbilical cord blood of babies and the safety of many chemicals is unknown, especially with daily cumulative exposure like with our cleaning and personal care products. Products that contain synthetic chemicals like parabens, phthalates, sulphates, triclosan and fragrance all negatively impact our hormones, skin, gut, immune and digestive systems, as well as being detrimental to the environment. While we cannot always control our exposure to toxic chemicals in the outside world, we can be the gatekeepers of our home.
During my first pregnancy in 2015, I started using Young Living essential oils and oil-infused products, at the recommendation of my sister who had been using them for over 10 years to support her own health issues. Now, using and diffusing essential oils has become part of our everyday to maintain and support our physical, emotional and mental health. They are so much more than just a nice smelling addition to our home and are central to our low tox lifestyle and creation of a healthy home environment.
Helping people explore and understand the ingredients in their household products and make the switch to safe, low tox alternatives is something I am passionate about. Creating healthy homes, healthy bodies and a healthy planet are all interconnected. Find out more about how you can be supported on your home detox journey.
In addition to our low tox oily lifestyle, I also firmly believe in creating an environment that doesn't add to the stress of parenthood and modern life. "Mess stress" is the term I use for how my brain and emotions feel when things are cluttered and cupboards overflowing.
Decluttering and putting systems in place to organise the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry and bedrooms will help bring a sense of calm and control to your environment. In collaboration with the brilliance of Jade from The Organised Collective, we can help if your house is screaming at you.
If your home is in need of a declutter, detox or a combination of both, get in touch to see how we can tailor a package to suit your situation.
