One of the best resources for determining where to start with going chemical free is The Chemical Free Home book, by Melissa Poepping which can be found here. It also contains recipes for those of you who like to make DIYs.
When I was trying to decide where to start, there is a page in her book that lists products and their toxicity. I noticed that mouthwash was high, and that I could easliy switch it by making a simple DIY that I will share in the next graphic.
SWITCH TO THIEVES MOUTHWASH!
This Mouthwash tastes awesome and not only does it not contain harmful chemicals, it keeps your breath fresh, and contains essential oils that actually benefit the body.
My DIY when I initally switched, is so easy to make. Take a 2 oz spray bottle (like the kind you get in the toiletry section at Walmart) and just add two drops Young Living Peppermint. Fill the rest of the way with water and give it a shake. That’s it!
Our peppermint is so unbelievably strong and this makes the best ever breath spray. I keep it in my purse and one in my desk drawer at school.
