Are you exposed to hidden toxins?

 

Your life is made up of many factors, some you can control and others you cannot. That is why it is so important to be mindful of the choices that you are making.  Are the choices you make every day improving your life or making it more difficult?

Some factors that you can control in your life are what you expose yourself to physically and environmentally. Are you unknowingly exposing yourself to toxins?

Environmental toxins and harsh chemicals can be hidden in products you use in your home. Do you know what ingredients your household cleaners, laundry detergents and air fresheners contain?  You may be alarmed to discover many of these products contain toxins that can cause endocrine disruption and predispose you to certain cancers. This is why it is important to replace these chemicals with safe, natural options. For example, traditional air fresheners can be detrimental to those with respiratory illnesses such as asthma, COPD and emphysema. These toxic products can be easily replaced with natural solutions such as a homemade aerosol spray containing natural ingredients such as lemon essential oil and witch hazel. You can also replace traditional laundry detergents and household cleaners with safe, organic options. Please see our recipe section for natural recipes to help you eliminate toxic exposure in your home.

It is also important to be aware of the chemical composition of products that go onto your body. Most lotions, make-up, shampoo, conditioner and soap contain ingredients which are not organic or natural. This is why White Naturals is proud to offer natural beauty products such as our African Black Soap which is 100% pure and proven to be a wonderful natural replacement for toxic traditional soaps.  Our entire line of beauty and skin care products are organic and do not contain cancer causing chemicals. We also have many recipes on our website which will teach you how to make natural beauty and skin care products so you can completely eliminate toxins in your beauty routine!

Home Remedies for Relaxation

Home Remedies for Relaxation

 

Relaxation is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. But it can be difficult to achieve if you are a high-stress person or have a very busy lifestyle. There are many natural substances and practices that can help you achieve calm and serenity. Below is a list of things you can try to bring some calm into your life.

 

DO NOT START ANY SUPPLEMENT, TREATMENT OR MEDICATION WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.

1- Chamomile.  This herb has been used for centuries to naturally induce feelings of calm and relaxation.It is a caffeine free herb that is filled with anti-oxidants. Research studies have also shown that it can help manage insomnia and help promote healthy sleeping habits.

2- Meditation. Mindfulness and focusing on positive is a necessary step in finding peace. Spending a few minutes of each day meditating and clearing your mind may help you stay calmer and feel more relaxed. Sitting in silence and mentally focusing on happy thoughts, spending time in nature or praying to a deity are great ways to meditate.

3- Essential Oils. There are hundreds of essential oil options, blends and remedies for just about every ailment. A holistic health practitioner or aromatherapist can help guide you to oils to improve your well-being. Essential oils can be applied in various different ways and some can even be taken internally for medicinal purposes.

(Do not ingest any essential oil without first checking with your physician, as some essential oils can interact with medications or certain conditions. Secondly, be sure you are using a bio-friendly, 100% therapeutic grade oil. Do not ingest a low quality oil, as they may be filled with other products and not 100% pure.)

 

Ways to use Essential Oils-

Aromatic-  Using essential oils in a diffusor or wax burner is a great way to promote wellness and improve the air quality in your home, car or office.

Application- Applying essential oils to tense or painful areas or using products such as creams or soaps infused with your choice blend is a great way to enjoy the benefits of various oils.
