Many people want to create a healthier lifestyle, but a huge, often overlooked, aspect of healthy living is creating a toxin free home. If you’re looking to make the transition to a toxin free home, it can be overwhelming. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be! If you’re asking yourself, “Where do I even begin?” then this post is for you.
These 3 simple tips will give you a framework for creating a toxin free home, one step at a time.
1. Start Small
If you’re just beginning your toxin free journey, don’t feel like you have to throw out every product in your cabinet, start growing your own food, or install a water filtration system on your home. All those things are great, but it is often the simple changes that can make the biggest impact.
Start by evaluating the products in your home and reevaluating your purchases. If you run out of toothpaste, take a look at the ingredients and shop for a cleaner option.
2. Avoid Fragrance
Of course, we all want our homes to smell nice. However, candles, air fresheners, and plug-ins are some of the most toxic things in homes today. Consider tossing these items and freshen up your home with beeswax candles or an essential oil diffuser instead.
3. Bring the Outside In
Plants are a great way to add life to your space while purifying the air! Plants like pathos, ferns, philodendrons, and snake plants are great houseplants that help remove toxins from the air.
The journey to living toxin free is just that, a journey. Take small steps towards creating a cleaner, healthier environment in your home. For more tips on how to live toxin free, follow me on Instagram!
