Toxic Free Living How to Reduce your Toxic Load @MamaKautz

Toxic Free Living

Did you know you can clean with essential oils too?
They have lots of great cleansing properties.
I am all about natural, fewer toxins in our home.
Do you know how many toxins are in your home? The same toxins that you expose your children too?
They are in your shampoo. In your air fresheners. Your laundry soap.
I have been using natural cleaners for about 3 or 4 years. Now I can’t even walk down the cleaner aisle without getting a headache.
Perfume section of a department store is completely out of the question.
The long term effects of these cleaners are horrific. They can cause cancer,asthma, allergies, and infertility. This isn’t even a complete list. Why hasn’t the FDA cracked down on cleaners instead of going after people who want to make soap in their own kitchen? I know it’s the EPA that regulates cleaning supplies.

Here are a few super easy DIY recipes you can make at home. Some say but I don’t have time or money. I can honestly say DIY is cheaper. It also healthier. You either pay with your time now or the doctor later.

Homemade Febreeze

I use 8-10 drops of purification blend in a brown, glass spray bottle.
Fill the rest of the bottle with water and you are good to go. I use this everyday, especially where the dog sleeps. It is a great, fresh scent and best part no headache!

Replace your Lysol

Protective Blend has been proven to *********
2 TBSP Protective Blend Concentrate in large spray bottle full of water (Or 8-10 drops of oil in 16oz of water)
Excellent for countertops in the kitchen and bathroom.
I also use this for toilet and tub. Safe for kids to use too. (I am all about child labor in this house)

Carpet Deodorizer

2-3 Drops of your choice of oil. I like purification blend or any of the citrus oils
1-2 Tbsp of baking soda (depending on size of room)
Stir together
Sprinkle on Carpet
Let sit for 5 or 10 minutes
Vacuum

Homemade Lip Balm

1 oz Beeswax
2T. Coconut Oil
1T. Shea Butter
1T. Cocoa Butter
20 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Shaving Cream

1/3 C. Coconut Oil
