Ayurveda says, detoxification is important to evacuate all the impurities and from the body for optimum physical and mental health. We have often heard that Detoxification is important for the internal cleanliness of our bodies, and overall well-being but we forget to consider our HOMES. The environment where we breathe and sleep should be our priority to keep clean and free from harmful toxins. So, pick up your notepad & pencil and note down ways to
detoxify homes completely to stay healthy and vigorous: -
HAVE INDOOR HOUSE PLANTS
Indoor plants are extremely helpful in cleansing the home air. These
plants help in getting rid of chemical compounds like formaldehyde that are harmful to health. It is advised to have at least two plants in every room of the house including the kitchen too. The
plants that are recommended by NASA to cleanse the internal environment of homes are Spider Plants, English IVY.
USE NATURAL CANDLES
Candles are lovely!! They provide an exotic ambiance & scent,
that is just not possible with artificial lights. We advise you to use candles that do not contain any heavy or artificial chemicals. Unfortunately, many of those regular scented candles in the market have additives that are harmful to our health as well as people around us. There are many natural candles such as beeswax or soy.
USE MORE NATURAL CLEANING PRODUCTS
Instead of using harsh chemical products to cleanse your homes,
start using natural products like Apple Cider Vinegar, Plain Distilled Vinegar, Baking Soda. You can use these natural items to clean floors of homes and shelves of the kitchen. Also, you can use Baking soda for deodorizing and pet stains. The mixture of lemon and vinegar is
optimal for lemon and vinegar. Dryer sheets should be ditched, as they are not a necessity.
CLEAN THE HVAC UNIT
If you have a Heater and Central Air Conditioner, then you must have seen debris and dander in your homes. Keep the air filter cleaned regularly with its ducts get cleaned by
a professional about once a year.
