You don’t have to spend a fortune to use non-toxic cleaners in your home.  With just a few simple ingredients, you can easily make cheap and earth-friendly household cleaners that really work!  Here’s 10 Simple DIY Household Cleaners that I use in my home.

Right now as you read, there are about 700 chemicals coursing through your  body, many of which can be found in the cleaning supplies in your home. These chemicals include potent  hormone disruptors, formaldehyde and cancer-causing 1,4 dioxane.  Exposure to these chemicals has been linked to chronic diseases like asthma, autism, autoimmune diseases, and cancer.  Studies have found an estimated 30,000-50,000 man-made chemicals  bloodstreams today that our grandparents never had.

But lucky for us, we don’t need these toxic chemicals to have a clean home.  And you don’t have to break the bank at your local health food store to purchase all of those fancy “organic” cleaners. Using a few simple household items, you can easily make your own non-toxic cleaners.

Why use non-toxic cleaners?

Studies have found over 200 man-made chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is  found in over 90% of personal care products, shampoos, soaps, conditioners, cleansers and toothpastes. It is BANNED in Europe and Canada. It causes hair loss, cataracts, rashes. It has been shown to affects the brain, heart, and liver.

The American Association of Poison Control Centers reports at more than 90% of poisonings happen at home. Medicines, household cleaners, and pesticides top the list of offenders.

A study on chemicals used in household products in New Jersey and Massachusetts showed that 28 million pounds of chemicals that are known or suspected neurotoxins, carcinogens, or reproductive or developmental toxicants were used in soaps and other detergents, in those two states alone. Additionally, 259 million pounds of these chemicals were accounted for in specialty cleaners and polishers

A study by the Toronto Indoor Air Commission concluded that, due to increased exposure to household carcinogens, women who work at home have a 55 percent greater chance of developing cancer than women who spend the majority of their time outside the home.

Basic Ingredients:

It doesn’t take much to make your own non-toxic household cleaners.  Here’s a list of basic of things that I use :

Castile Soap: Castile soap is a vegetable soap traditionally made from 100% pure olive oil, water, and lye.  It is  indispensable in green cleaning because it acts as a surfactant and helps lift away dirt and cut through grease.

Vinegar:  Good old white vinegar has antiseptic properties and  is a great cleanser and degreaser.  You can also use apple cider vinegar.

Baking Soda: Baking soda is cheap, naturally abrasive, and a great deodorizer.  It is completely biodegradable.

Rubbing Alcohol:  Rubbing alcohol has a neutral pH and is a good alternative when acidic liquids like vinegar are too harsh.  It is great for streak-free glass and helps to preserve essential oils.

Essential Oils: Many essential oil are known for their antiseptic properties.  They are a great way to “super-charge” your green cleaners.  Some of them are wonderful degreasers, deodorizers, and brighteners as well.  Not only do essential oils get things clean, studies show they can help you in other ways – from lifting your mood to boosting your immune system.

My Favorite Essential Oils for Green Cleaning:

Thieves:  Thieves is a potent blend of Lemon, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary.  It has long been used for it’s antiseptic properties.  Among Oily users, it is the number one essential oil for boosting the immune system.  

Purification:  Purification is a blend of Citronellsa, Lemongrass, Lavandia, Rosemary, Melaleuca, and Myrtle.  It is hands down the best deodorizer to cleanse and purify funky odors.  It is also known for it’s antiseptic properties.  

Melaleuca alternifolia: Melaleuca (or Tea Tree) is highly regarded for it’s antiseptic properties. In aromatherapy, it is recommended for stimulating the immune system and for supporting the respiratory system.  It has been used for centuries by Indigenous aboriginals to clean and heal skin abrasions and other skin issues.  

Lemon:  Lemon essential oil is not only antiseptic, but has also been shown to actually improve people’s moods according to a 2008 study published in Psychoneuroendocrinology, so try using some lemon to see the brighter side of things. Lemon is also a powerful degreaser and natural brightener. 

Lavender:  Lavender’s antiseptic properties make it ideal for green cleaning.  It’s a wonderful deodorizer.  It is also known for it’s calming effects on the nervous system.  Many folks use Lavender to help with better sleep.

A Word About Quality

Please note that I am only talking about 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils.  Only about 2% of essential oils sold are considered therapeutic grade.  There is no standard for EOs and so many of the oils you find may be adulterated or synthetically manipulated and can actually contain harmful ingredients.

My essential oil of choice is Young Living Essential Oils. They own their farms and they run a very tight supply chain.  I trust their essential oils above all others because they are pure and unadulterated and are manufactured for therapeutic use not just for smell.    Read more here about why I choose Young Living.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
