Holistic Living Tidbits: The Breath of Life

“Out of intense complexities, intense simplicities emerge.” – Winston Churchill.

Remember the Rule of 3:

You can go three minutes without oxygen, three days without water and three weeks without food. Of course, these are approximate and can vary depending on your unique genetic and physiological makeup.

 

The first and most important, clean air is what I will elaborate on in this post.

Air quality has a big impact on our overall health.

 

Some people are more sensitive to artificial fragrance than others, they have adverse reactions such as hives, headaches, irritability, brain fog, asthma and allergies. But even if someone doesn’t have those immediate symptoms their overall health is still impacted. It is still getting into their lung tissue and their bloodstream which disrupts their hormonal rhythms, which in turn leads to disease.

At present, it may affect a person’s friends and other members of their family the most, such as kids, a spouse, and even your animals. Many people don’t like confronting people they love about this issue and many people just simply don’t know how damaging artificial fragrances are to health.

 

What Can You Do? Simple Changes…


**Ditch artificial fragrance(think wall plug-ins, and sprays that come in a can) that merely cover up foul odors. Instead, clean the home naturally. Keep indoor plants, especially herbs they will lend their natural scent to your home. Burn only pure beeswax candles, never paraffin and open your windows often.

 

**Ditch chemical air fresheners for the car. Try a homemade essential oil mix instead.

 

**Buy Unscented cat litter that has activated charcoal.

 

**Buy Unscented garbage bags.

 

**Use wool dryer balls, instead of dryer sheets.

 

**Biodegradable laundry products are always the best, some are fragrance-free and some have a scent that is derived only from essential oils, read all ingredients carefully!

 

**Vinegar and Baking Soda go a long way, they are economical, effective and hypoallergenic. You can find many recipes online for creating your own homemade cleaners, sometimes you can add essential oils too.

 

**Ditch Cologne and Perfume, don’t underestimate the power of the shower. Many people tend to believe those who wear fragrances are unclean. Whether or not that is true, who knows…

 

Helpful product tips:

*Look for companies that disclose all ingredients, that are free of synthetic fragrance or support the local artisan that makes trustworthy and naturally scented products or learn to make your own, it can be quite fun!

 

*Seventh Generation is a decent Product line.

 

*Dr. Bronner’s makes excellent products, including personal care products, as well as home cleaning solutions, they have the best ingredients that I have found in any store-bought personal care and cleaning products. They are also my go-to brand.
