The smell of a clean house…that’s pure bliss. The smell of toxic chemicals…that’s pure poison. Luckily, making our own non-toxic cleaners is super simple. We reached out to a friend of the family, Bijou Phillips, who after a health diagnosis became a self-taught wellness guru. Below Bijou explains why she detoxed her household supplies and shares the ingredients we need to make her toxin-free cleaning solutions.
“Look at the back of any store-bought cleaner—so many crazy chemicals. When I found out I had kidney issues, I learned the organs filter out all the chemicals in our environment (among so many other major jobs). Cleaning with most traditional products can affect your well-being by leaving you light-headed, and the artificial fragrance can make you feel sick. I knew I had to make a change.
Nine years ago, I switched to mixing my own cleaning products. I’ll be honest, I was prepared for my house to never be super clean again because of the stigma surrounding natural ingredients not working as well, but I was so wrong. My house is now twice as clean and smells amazing, thanks to essential oils.”
