The BE Living Cookbook
Today’s modern home is loaded with products designed to clean, disinfect, or “freshen” your bathroom, kitchen, furniture, and even the air your breath.
Commercial home cleaning products are not just more expensive when compared with natural alternatives, they are full of toxins known to have effects on your skin, lungs, nervous system, and even your endocrine and reproductive systems.
These dangerous toxins invade your body either through the fumes they create, or through contact with your skin - and it doesn’t stop there.
Toxins from home cleaning products eventually find their way from your home drains or garbage cans to your soil, your drinking water, and the air you breathe, affecting all humans, animals, and plants.
Thankfully, there are eco-friendly and health-friendly home cleaning products that you can make at home for just about any job you need.
Simply choose one of your favorite scents, like orange, lavender, or peppermint and mix a few drops with water into a spritz bottle, and spray. Or add one of these oils to water and simmer on the stove.
The best news? Your health, creativity and immune system will benefit as well:
With essential oils, you only need a few drops to get the benefits, so a little goes a long way!
We have a responsibility to ourselves, to our planet, and to future generations to do everything in our power to figure out eco-friendly ways of living.
By implementing the tips we’ve suggested, or doing a little bit of research before turning to commercially available home cleaning products, you can make a big difference, with hardly any cost to your pocketbook, or your time, and big gains to your health and the health of your family!
