The process of adapting an organic lifestyle can take time and energy however, it does NOT have to be overwhelming or extremely expensive to transition to an organic, toxin-free way of living.
If you’re in the process of modifying your home care and beauty routines here are four simple transitions you can make today (that you probably already have the resources and time to do!).
1) Harness the power of citrus: Citrus naturally and non-toxically cuts through grease and grime all while deodorizing and polishing the surfaces you use it on. Lemon, grapefruit, orange and lime oils can all be mixed with water and or vinegar to make a wonderful all-purpose cleaner.
2) Go nuts for coconut: The best organic, non-toxic furniture polish (and natural moisturizer on the market) is coconut oil! It is a more expensive purchase so wait for it to be on sale then stock up because it’s shelf-stable for approximately 2 years! Remember that, whether you’re moisturizing or polishing a little bit goes a long way – make it last.
3) Freeze it: When it comes to purchasing organic fruits and vegetables the key is to shop seasonally, shop by sales and to use your freezer! Anything you can’t use before it goes bad can be frozen to extend the life – wash, chop and freeze fruits and veggies by serving size to make them easily accessible for smoothies, bread, casseroles or soup!
4) Look at homemade options: Particularly when it comes to soaps and cleaning products make sure you investigate what homemade products are available in your area. Often organic, homemade items are available at a lower cost and, bonus, you can support local business and companies!
