Don’t know where to start when it comes to removing toxic chemicals in your home?
Below are some important facts about certain products most people have in their homes. Essential oils can easily replace many of these products if not all of them! It’s not hard to be healthy and you won’t be needing to buy store and pharmacy bought products each week. Natural solutions means making life-sustaining and life-improving choices for our bodies, our home, and our world.
Did you know that Vicks VapoRub contains turpentine and petroleum? The thought of rubbing turpentine into my children’s skin makes me shudder and petroleum has been linked to cancer. Petroleum is found in many cosmetics and store-bought products. Enough said.
Glen 20 contains propane and butane… Butane is regarded as one of the more harmful volatile substances to inhale. Breathing in or swallowing propane can be harmful. Propane takes the place of oxygen in the lungs.
Hand sanitizer, antibacterial hand washes… Do you suffer from thyroid problems or hormone imbalance? Research shoes that antibacterial chemicals could be a contributing factor. Several studies showed that triclosan and similar chemicals disrupted the body’s ability to uptake thyroid hormone and interfered with other hormone processes in the body. This hormone imbalance can lead to more advanced problems like infertility, obesity and several cancers. Research done by Dr. Stuart Levy, president of the Alliance for the Prudent Use of Antibiotics and a professor of molecular biology at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston says triclosan creates an environment where the resistant, mutated bacteria are more likely to survive.
I’ve completely transitioned to making all of my own cleaning products and I love how much cheaper it is and how we are avoiding hundreds of chemicals.
