This week has seen me really want to take charge of the toxin levels in my home. We have very little/no control over the toxins outside, but with a fresh set of eyes, it is very easy and cost effective to change what we use inside.
By removing toxins from your home, you are supporting your body and therefore your mind to be healthier, happier, to give you more energy and look forwards to each day!
Most of us spend 80% of our time indoors! and that air is 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air?! This is due to the chemicals through products and furnishings.
So lets start with some quick and easy ways you can reduce that!
You will need:
3 spray bottles
On-Guard Cleaner Concentrate
Purify Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil
Lavender Essential Oil
Tea Tree Essential Oil
Arborvitae Essential Oil
Wild Orange Essential Oil
(You can purchase all of these essential oils here http://mydoterra.com/natashamiddleton or contact me)
Toxins are external and internal substances that disrupt our homeostasis, placing extra stress on various body systems to clean and clear them. A build up of toxins effects our nervous system. respiratory system as well as leading to all forms of illnesses, some serious as well as minor such as allergies.

Add 1 TBSP of On-Guard Cleaner Concentrate to your spray bottles and top with water.
You can also add 15 drops of your favourite essential oil to change up the sent, but I personally love the smell that On Guard gives.
For stubborn stains, apply concentrate directly to the stain, and leave to soak before cleaning.
