Making The Clean Swap In My Home
I have decided to swap out A LOT of things in my house for cleaner healthier options, and I’m not just talking about food! I made a post on my Facebook and instagram about how I am ready to buy safer products for my family, and my FB post exploded!!! I want to do it all, cleaning products , make ups, lotions, nail polish, baby products … you name it!
I am overwhelmed with all the info! People gave me so many different companies and products, I wasn’t even know where to even begin.
From what I read every site told me to stop buying any products that have artificial fragrance ( check the ingredients list & avoid if it says ‘fragrance’ or ‘parfum,’ that means it’s probably an artificial fragrance) We need to look for products that are scented with essential oils ( or make my own ) or products that says something like ‘proprietary blend of essential oils’ , these are generally safe to use.
I have decided that I’m going to start with my cleaning products and then lotions . Sounds weird but let me tell you how. I am going to make my own using oils! I have wanted to get into essential oils for a while and this seems like the perfect time.
There are TONS of recipes on google about how to make your own safe cleaning products that actually work. So that is what I am doing!
I have ordered my oils , saved a bunch of recipes and made a list of things I need. I’m starting with an all-purpose cleaner , a glass cleaner and dish soap. Then I am moving onto hand soap and lotions for me and Brody. Since a lot of the recipes call for the same ingredients I’ll be able to make soaps, face wash and lotions for me and Brody without buying a ton of different things.
This is not happening over night! This is going to take me some time and I’m excited to share this whole process with you all. Once I’m all set with my above activities I will move onto to make up which is going to be an investment !
If you have a favorite homemade recipe Id love to know it! Comment below, leave me links to your fav sites , tell me your favorite essential oils . I know nothing and want to learn everything!!!
