Why I now use natural cleaning products from the reformed Queen of bleach

Posted on 16 February, 2018 at 7:40 Comments comments (0)

I have been known to talk a lot (who moi?) about chemical detox and I give weekly classes on how to lead a more non-toxic lifestyle, so it will be no surprise to you I am writing on it today!

 

There was an a article on the front page of The Telegraph this morning, which caught my attention (Actually, I have to be honest I don't read the newspapers but my Mother and Michael send me clippings every day).


The title is: "Household cleaners "as bad for the lungs as 20 cigarettes a day". (Click on the link to read the full article).

 

The article is based on research presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Texas.


What questions does the article bring up for you? I know, for me, I have concerns on how hourshold cleaners may affect my Mother who has COPD ad then I wonder what affect it has on children and their little bodies?




Now, I used be THE Bleach Queen.

 

I would start at the top of the room and work my way down bleaching everything in sight.

 

I LOVED the chemical smell of everything being properly clean, I think this is because my mother used to bleach everything when I was growing up.

 

However, I have done a MASSIVE u-turn since I started Blossom and have learnt how harmful household chemicals can be.


I was shopping in Asda, last week and I noticed that Fairy Liquid now have a new product which states 0% Perfumes. 0% Dyes.

I use a mix of brands now in my home Method, Ecover and doTERRA and I also make my own natural products (when time allows).
