Are you living a toxic-free lifestyle?
Sometimes we don’t even realize what products in our house may contain toxins. Everyday cleaners found on the shelves of grocery stores are full of petrochemicals that are hazardous to our health. When you clean with them, they get into the air and are then circulated through the vents which can continue to release the fumes. They even leave residue on the surface after wiping it so if this is an area where food is prepared and then eaten, we are ingesting those chemicals. While these products may do a good job at visibly cleaning our homes, most of them are considered poisonous when ingested and can be very harmful when inhaled or touched.
While you may love the smell of these cleaning products, the source of the smell can be extremely toxic! Fragrances are added to many cleaners and can cause an array of health issues. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health has found that one-third of the substances used in the fragrance industry are toxic. But, because the chemical formulas of fragrances are considered trade secrets, companies are not required to list their ingredients but can simply label them “fragrance”.
Common toxic chemicals found in the most popular cleaning products:
- Ammonium compounds
- Sodium hydroxide
The potential side effects of these ingredients include skin irritations, burns, respiratory issues, headaches and many other long term health problems. We encourage you to do some inventory and research on the products in your home and take advantage of the plant-based products Young Living offers. We love that Young Living uses plant based ingredients that we can trust!
