I have been working on removing toxic products out of our home. I just joined Young Living Essential Oils and have been watching videos to get informed on how to use all of the oils. I wanted to share some of the steps I have started to remove toxins out of my home.
Fabric softener sheets- they are full of toxins and fragrances, I have switched to dryer balls instead and you can add drops of essential oils if you want to add a scent to your laundry.
Air freshener sprays- I have removed all of the air freshener sprays and plugins. I now just diffuse essential oils. There are a ton of variations of blends you can use.
Cleaning products-I thought I was doing better and using natural cleaning products then I learned about an app (Think Dirty) that tells you how toxic products are. I am slowly switching over to less toxic cleaners and will eventually be using Young Living cleaning products.
Think Dirty app- Here is a short explanation for the app: easier way to learn about the potentially toxic ingredients in your cosmetics and personal care products. It is a free app that you scan the barcode of the product or type in the name of the product. I was so surprised when I started scanning all of the products around my home. I have been purchasing what I thought were more natural products but when I scanned them using the app they were a 9 or 10 for toxicity which is bad
EWG skin deep website– You can search your products by name and it will tell you how toxic your products are on a scale from 1-10; 10 being the worst
Switch out products one by one- When you are out of a product switch it to a less toxic product
I will keep you updated on my journey of removing toxins out of my home. Do you have any tips?
