This series is to help you slowly make the transition to a more natural home.
Take it in steps as with everything that you do with your life.
If anyone had noticed my cleaning supplies 6 months ago, they would see all the dangerous chemicals that I had. I think it is safe to say that most people carry them in their homes and never really think much about the dangerous that may lurk in them. Even though every bottle has a huge warning that this is poisonous!!
One walk down the grocery store isle and you can see the hundreds of products out there with all their pretty little packaging.. The smell might over take you, probably make you sneeze. That can’t be good. What is in all that stuff? and why are we putting it onto the floors where our babies crawl on? The media is screaming with ads of cleaners that promise to do this and do that. We will continue to be lured into their marketing schemes to buy the newest and greatest cleaner out there. And let our pocket books get more and more broke each month. So why do we do this?
I am human, I get lapsed in my duties just like everyone else. Would you believe 6 years ago I used to sell all natural cleaners and laundry soap? Then I had baby after baby, and I got lapsed. Seems it was easier to waste the income my husband worked for plus I was so programmed from society to believe that everything had to smell like bleach or it wasn’t clean. But no more, the reason for writing this blog is for me to be accountable in my actions. I try and make wholesome foods for my family, but then I forget that what they are breathing in everyday is just as important.
We spend more time in our homes than we do anywhere else. Our homes are where we eat, sleep, and spend time with our family. This is why it is so important to keep our homes clean and free of germs and bacteria that can make us sick but in a natural, non caustic way. And do you know we can do it inexpensively? Especially over time and probably help cut down on some respiratory illnesses due to breathing in all that stuff?
So why 21 days? Research has shown that it takes 21 days to break a habit. The best way is day by day, baby steps. Ever hear the expression,“How do you eat an elephant? “Answer—one part at a time. Going all natural in your home is a good habit to get started on. Over the next 3 weeks we will implement something in your life that will help you live chemical free one bite at a time. Let’s get started.
