Healthy Habit #8: Detoxify your home.

Remember the study discovering that women on average put 168 toxins on their skins? I have more bad news. Most household cleaning products, fragrances, candles and soaps fare even worse, and can be dangerously toxic. Ingredients in common household products have been linked to asthma, cancer, reproductive disorders, hormone disruption and neurotoxicity. Sure, we are exposed to small amounts, but its the frequency that we are exposed to them that can be alarming. Baking soda, lemons and apple cider vinegar are incredible natural cleaning ingredients that I have found actually work. (see link for some inspiring ideas!) If you would prefer, brands like Method, Ecover and Dr. Bronner do a range of safe products for many different uses around the house!
