How I Radically Improved My Health + Home
Making simple changes in our house, one step at a time, that’s how I radically changed my life and my family’s life. I feel better than ever! Our family has seen so many health improvements over the years thanks to the changes we have made to a toxin-free home. I am so happy that we have eliminated toxins and moved to clean products. Here are the steps we have taken to feel better!

Having a holistic mindset about how I take care of my house and the people inside has changed everything for me and my family.
Once I discovered that many popular household products can contain toxic chemicals, I knew I had to get serious. I would never stay there again. Even products that claim to be “all natural” (called greenwashing) can have unidentified flavors and ingredients that can be toxic.
Repeated use of these products results in increased exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. We inhale these chemicals into our lungs and absorb them through our skin.
The so-called “natural” products I used at home have fooled me for so long.
“Regular use of spray cleaners can have as much health impact as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, according to new research. Scientists at the Norwegian University of Bergen followed 6,000 people, who were on average 34 years old at the time of enrollment in the study, who used the cleaning products over a period of two decades, according to research published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal Of Medicine for Respiratory and Critical Care. “ (source)
With my autoimmune disease, Hashimoto, I have learned so much over the years about how everyday products can seriously affect our health.
This is why we no longer burn scented candles in our house and are very selective about our cleaning and personal care products. We are the guardians of our homes and I say it is better to be safe than sorry! When we know better, we can do better. And I have never been more confident in the benefits of a toxin-free home.
A few years ago, I decided for the health of my family to completely replace the scented candles and chemical fresheners in our house with pure essential oils.
It was a hard pill to swallow at first – I loved my candles! I had no idea what impact candles can have on our health. I thought I would miss the candles, but honestly, no. I use diffusers that shine and sparkle and the oils I use smell INCREDIBLE! This simple exchange really made our home so much healthier and happier. It’s like a spa, I am OBSESSING to use oils, filling my diffusers is a favorite ritual every day.
When we abandoned the candles, it also didn’t mean plug-ins, no room sprays, no synthetic household cleaners (I learned that not only should you avoid the most obvious toxins, but you should do pay attention to the ingredient “perfume” or “perfume” because it could hide a certain number of toxins which I do not want with us). No worries, I can do all of these things without the toxins!
Then I exchanged our cleaning products. I used to buy allll products. Each spring, before learning more, I had filled up with new scented dishwashing soaps. In winter, I wanted all the Christmas scented soaps and sprays. Of course, at the time, I thought they were healthy, but unfortunately they were not. Now that they have been out of our home for years and my body has become detoxified, I can feel the difference in products and notice the difference in how I feel.
I only need this herbal toxin-free household cleaner concentrate for everything! It’s so simple and affordable to use. We no longer store all of this toxic garbage that we had under our sink. This cleaner is also what I spray on my fig fiddle leaf to keep it shiny, happy and healthy. Plants love it, and so do we. It is safe around our dogs and our lungs. I also have tons of recipes for making pasta and cleaning scrubs with. It is super versatile and works like a charm.
We wash our dishes with clean and safe products, no more unpleasant chemicals or synthetic fragrances on our plates which we eat! The dishwashing liquid I use is also very concentrated, one bottle can turn into several, so we save a lot of money. Our dishwasher soap also works great as a scrub! I love the versatility of these clean herbal products. No need to wear a mask to clean your bathroom!
It is also important for us to wash our laundry without chemicals and absolutely no toxic dryer sheets! We use wool dryer balls and oils inside!
I’m in love with my new hand soap! Glad to say that we no longer wash our hands with endocrine disruptors. My endocrines have been disturbed enough for a lifetime, thank you very much. 🙂 The perfumes we love now are pure, unaltered essential oils, without adding harmful substances that we don’t need in our lungs and even less on our hands.
I start to exchange skincare products. My face has never been happier. Much of what we put on our skin is also found in our body, so it is very important to be careful with skin care.
Then I exchanged my toxic makeup and replaced it with beautiful clean makeup without toxins. It works better than anyone I have ever tried! Magnificent. I used to have rashes and flaky eyelids because of the preservatives that “natural” products contained. I love the purity and standards of these ingredients, they far exceed any other brand.
By ridding our house of toxins and using trusted herbal products, we have become healthier. We started to focus on better nutrition, working with a naturopath on my health, becoming gluten-free, and starting taking incredible targeted supplements. The changes have been dramatic and have truly changed lives.
We have cleaned our medicine cabinets of harmful unnecessary things, now we are very proactive in our efforts for health and well-being instead of reacting and paying for illness.
I take a holistic approach to my health and use supplements and natural remedies. I haven’t been sick from a bug in five years! It makes me so happy.
But if I do get sick, I’m sure I have everything I need to strengthen the immune system and my body’s defenses.
So much has changed in our home since we started this toxin-free journey.
From the day I told you for the first time that I was trying essential oils to stay healthy after getting the flu years ago and until now, our life and health as a family has continued to change radically for the better.
This path was the best decision ever made.
My only regret? That I didn’t start earlier.
Just about everything we need for a healthy, happy home and family, we get through this trusted business.
The product we use to clean sinks and floors and bathrooms, the soap we get to do our laundry and dishwashing, the products we love for healthy hair and skin, the oils we use to elevate our emotions, to help us sleep and boost our immune and respiratory systems, the supplements I use to heal my thyroid and reverse Hashimoto and support all of the healthy body systems, enzymes and probiotics we use for health intestinal… I receive them all in a monthly box!
It’s easy and I’m no longer afraid of what we bring to our house or unpleasant ingredients that will enter our bodies.
My favorite day is when my monthly Young Living order arrives!
Jack and Lily are also excited because we even get pet products (like their shampoo and Peace & Calming for Jack’s anxiety!). They have products for everyone, babies, moms, dads, teens, men, women, youth, older people and more.
The monthly order is completely optional but I like to order this way because it saves us a lot of money. We get 25% on each order, free oils and this saves me tons of time in decision making and purchases. This box facilitates the budgeting of our monthly order. We always know exactly what we need, what we need and what we need, but we can also get as much confidence from other members on new things to try. Plus, it’s just super easy to set up the box every month (it’s easy to update with what you want) and get what we need without leaving home! Homebody’s dream.
