Is your home making you FAT, SICK, DEPRESSED? Is your home destroying your relationship, your ability to create a happy family environment or stopping you from achieving your career goals and affecting how much money you earn? Is your home creating chronic ailment, aches, pain or disease?
YES! It most certainly can be!
Your home is a haven for many unhealthy things. The choices you make every day, and even your daily actions, and the actions of those you live with, bring in a lot of unwanted toxins that your home would do better without. You cannot help but bring toxins inside your home, whether it comes in stuck to the outside of your clothing, on the bottom of your shoes or in the foods, products and furnishings you buy and bring home, the gases and off-gassing released into the air contaminate it. You bring toxins through the chemicals you use in your body, your hair, your floor, furniture, your cooking, heating methods… there is an endless list. All these contribute to make your home a lot less than the healthy habitat it ought to be for you and your loved ones, AND it all affects how your body and mind function, how you feel, act and react and whether you are healthy, happy and fit or overweight, depressed and miserable.
Fortunately, all hope is not lost. Nature takes care of its own, why else would it be called ‘mother’? There are thousand and one things in which nature helps her children – US – but in this case, I am only concerned with the way she helps you fight against the unwanted substances which might be in your home. Because it is about Mother Nature, let us look at aromatherapy and other natural air purifiers you can use for a healthier home.
What is aromatherapy? Aroma=scent, fragrance, perfume. Therapy= remedy, cure, healing,
We can loosely take aromatherapy to mean a remedy, cure or healing using scents, fragrances or perfumes.
Using aromatherapy to rid your home of unclean and unhealthy air is therefore giving your home a much-deserved cure by use of pleasant smells.
Is aromatherapy a new concept?
By no means! Aromatherapy as used in cleansing is not a new concept as it has been used to cleanse our bodies of known physical and mental issues, but as a cleanser for buildings, it is a very recent phenomenon but no less a notable one. It just made a late appearance but now that it’s here, let us milk it of all its benefits.
