As entrepreneurs, many of us are working from home and focussing on growing our businesses. We can make a few simple changes to feel good about our work surroundings.

Do you ever wonder if the products in your home are safe for you and your family? If you use conventional cleaning sprays, room sprays, or candles, most likely, they have toxic ingredients in them. I had these in my home too, until I discovered that there were safer products out there.

Besides the food we eat, there are two primary sources of toxins: cleaning products and personal care products. Did you know that there are many hazardous chemicals in cleaning products that can affect your health? You can breathe the fumes into your lungs, and the chemicals can get absorbed through your skin, especially your hands.

On average, women use 12 personal care products a day with over 150 ingredients in them. That’s a lot of ingredients that I can’t pronounce! Your skin is your largest organ, and the products you use on your skin gets absorbed quickly into your body. All of these toxins can add up and cause a burden to our bodies.

I believe that we all can benefit from removing toxins from our homes. With so much information out there, most people don’t know where to start. It can be overwhelming and complicated until they find out how easy it is to make these changes. I knew that many of the products I was using were potentially harmful for years, but I kept on saying I’ll get to it, I’ll make changes, and they seemed so expensive!

I honestly didn’t know where to begin. Life gets busy, so I put it on my long to-do list with the hope that I would get to it someday. I learned that pure essential oils could also help me live a toxin-free lifestyle because they have therapeutic benefits. I committed to living toxin-free by making simple swaps as I ran out of products. Now I use essential oils every day, and I can’t imagine my life without them.

If you are ready to make some changes in your home so you can focus on the health of your business, here are three tips:

1. Instead of burning candles, diffuse essential oils like peppermint and wild orange to give yourself a pick me up in the afternoon. Or diffuse lavender and wild orange to reduce some stress after a day of working.

2. Switch out your cleaning spray with a simple mix of water, white vinegar, and essential oils like lemon or wild orange.

3. Ditch the room sprays filled with chemicals and make your own with lemon and lime essential oils.

Challenge yourself and try each one over the next few days!
