Protecting Your Family From Harsh Chemicals and Cleaners

Loretta Jane

Having a home and a family is an exciting time of life that is full of excitement and new adventures. The last thing you want to do is to make your home a place that is toxic for those who live there.

You may think that the products you are using in your house are safe and are not causing any damage. Many products that are store bought contain ingredients that can cause sneezing, headaches and even impact your immune system.

Here are 5 different things you can do to keep your home safe from toxic chemicals:

The Problem

It is a simple problem. You go to the store and buy some products to keep your house clean and healthy. This is the problem because those products you just got are full of harmful chemicals and toxic ingredients that are ready to harm your family and those who visit.

You may have thought about going all natural or even ditching harmful chemical cleaners. There is nothing worse than trying to clean and having to stop because you have to sneeze or blow your runny nose. This can be fixed when you make the switch to natural products.

Look at Your Home

Once you understand the problem you can take a look at your home and do a thorough search of what products you do. Do an entire sweep of your whole house. Look in your kitchen, living room, bedrooms, bathrooms and basement.

While you are doing this look for products that you use around your house to clean or freshen it throughout the week. This includes perfumes, candles and sprays you use as well. These things can all impact your health and the health of your children. Start thinking of ways to replace these products with healthier products that are not harmful or toxic.

Do It Yourself

If you are stuck and can’t find products that you can buy that aren’t toxic, you can always make your own products. This does not have to be as complicated as it may seem, you may already have a lot of these products in your household. Making your own products can save you money and can shorten your grocery shopping list.

Making your own products does not mean that you have to sacrifice your home smelling amazing. You can use Young Living Essential Oils to make your products smell wonderful without harsh perfumes. This keeps your house smelling great and keeps your family members safe.

Pace Yourself

Switching to all natural products can feel like an overwhelming task, especially if you have a lot of products that you use in your house. The good thing for you is that you do not have to switch everything over all at once. That can be expensive if you are trying to figure out which recipes work for your situation.

Take it easy and see what your budget can handle. If you can’t afford anything at the moment, feel free to take a step back and make a plan for when you can afford it. Switch one thing at a time and slowly your home will be free of toxins and chemicals.

Your Solution

Not every all natural home is going to look the exact same. You may have to switch recipes that you are using if you move to a new area that is more humid or is hotter than the one you lived in before. Keep in mind that every place and home is going to react differently to all natural products. You may even find that you do not switch over everything in your household and only switch over some products and not others.

Keep your home a place that is happy and healthy for everyone who lives in it and visits. Keep your goals in mind and do something to work towards them everyday. Be sure to share this with a friend or loved one!
