It wasn’t until I was in the in the midst of chronic illness a few years ago that I realised the sheer amount of toxins I was surrounded by at home. Even less so the toxins that I was putting on my body!

I’m talking about the make-up, lotions perfumes, aftershave, household cleaning products, laundry detergent...

So what's the issue?

Have you ever taken a look at some of the ingredients in these products?

And that’s before we even start to think about the outside environment we might be exposed to.

The issue is that we absorb and inhale everything in our homes and surrounding environment. All these toxins end up in our bodies leaving our livers with the job of processing an array of synthetic chemicals and toxins.

As we age, these contaminants accumulate in our fat tissues and organs, increasing our overall toxic load.

I realise now that my body was working overtime to try and keep me safe and healthy. It got really tired - so did I...

Of course, these toxins weren't the driving force of my illness, but they were not supporting my recovery.

Small changes, small increments - they all add up to make a huge difference.

So, detoxing your home isn’t an overnight thing. It takes time and patience.

Even if you only eliminate or substitute some of your more toxic household and body products it will be great for you.

Why not try some of these alternative cleaning products:

  • All-purpose non-toxic cleaner

  • Baking soda

  • Castile soap

  • Distilled white vinegar - great for cleaning windows!

  • Non-toxic hand soap, washing-up detergent & laundry detergent (or soap nuts)

There's loads of natural body products and makeup out there too - have an explore.

Share any great product finds here!
