Clean Up Your Cleaning Products!
I am slowly making changes to live a healthier, cleaner, less toxic life. While this obviously includes increasing organic foods, eating more fruits and vegetables, grass fed beef and raw dairy, it also includes environmental toxins that my family and I are exposed to on a daily basis, like cleaning products. What at first appears to be overwhelming-how can I replace every single product I use for cleaning? the expense! the research for all those products?!-has been simplified by a small company called Branch Basics. I heard about them through another Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I visited their site and loved what I learned, especially the simplicity of it! They have 1 concentrate that is plant and mineral based, free of harmful preservatives, biodegradable, not tested on animals and non-GMO. You get different spray bottles for different cleaning purposes (all purpose, streak-free, bathroom, etc.) and you simply add the indicated amount of concentrate, water and can then add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to give it more power and/or a scent that will make you happy while you clean.
I have been using it for a few months and love both the cleaning power and knowing that I am not breathing in any harmful chemicals during my nightly cleaning of the kitchen counters. It might seem like a small step, but all those nights add up to a lot of toxic fumes. They even have a foaming hand soap container and the concentrate can be used for laundry!
While my mission is to help busy moms better care for themselves and their families, I am hoping that if you are like me and making small steps towards a cleaner life, you will give Branch Basics a try. It’s simple, clean and the packaging looks great too. Please visit their site to learn more and use the link below to get $10 off their products.
