Information that I found to help detox your home.

Information that I found to help detox your home.

Never has there been a more important time to reduce the use of chemicals in our lives.

For years we have talked with people that have decided to detox, or reduce the use of chemicals in their home. Indeed, at the moment, with so much time being spent inside, the influence of chemicals on our health is real and so important to look at how to reduce them in our homes and work areas.

The following are a few articles I found to be useful. They highlight and explain what areas of our lives are currently being exposed to chemicals and how to make changes.

Information to start the change:

Organic living. This is a good start to how to live chemical free, including information about organic food. Go here for more info.

This is a great blog post from The Herbal Gardener that talks about importance of using organic, natural skin care but also has a wide range of information about the effects of chemicals in the home.

I also like this article on Wellbeing.com.au that highlights 10 areas to reduce your chemical use.

Use of fragrances in the home is a real health issue. This is information we have gathered, including links to advice from the Asthma Council about VOC's.

I hope these help. We are passionate about reducing the use of chemicals in the home and one of the main reasons that we create beeswax candles that don't produce toxic fumes. Our use of Australian Certified Organic beeswax is the key to ensure this.

Do you have other information about a chemical free lifestyle? Let me know so we can pass it on.

Looking forward to hearing your journey to a chemical free world.

Illuminating Everyday Rituals

While the idea of ritual may seem foreign to many of us these days, of long forgotten times based in ye olde mythology or something steeped in religious traditions that we are challenged to pay attention to, rituals are necessary for our times, and very much alive and waiting to be re-awakened inside each of us.
