The other day, I read a quote about “romanticizing your life” and I completely fell in love with this concept. It encouraged us to find excitement, fun and all-around joy in the simple, mundane aspects of our life.
I fell in love with the concept because it’s what I preach and teach about the non-toxic lifestyle. I just never had such a beautiful label for it. Your success in transitioning to a healthier way of living will be influenced by your ability to find joy in using cleaner + greener products for your body and home.
Every time you exfoliate with your coconut salt scrub, take a moment to recognize the nourishment you are providing to your body – free from any synthetic chemical that could disrupt the functioning of your cells and endocrine system. Every time you spray that essential oil + vinegar mixture onto your counters, feel the satisfaction of knowing there’s no harm being done to yourself or the earth – in fact, you are getting side health benefits!
I recently shared in my social media stories how I like to turn making the bed into a more enjoyable chore by spraying my linens with a DIY essential-oil based spray. This is just one of the super simple ways you can romanticize your non-toxic lifestyle. This is how I do it:
- Take a 4 oz stainless steel spray bottle
- Add 15 drops of high-quality essential oils
- Fill with water
I go crazy spraying the pillows, sheets and comforter. I even open the closet and spray our clothes. And I feel gosh, darn amazing and powerful doing it. I actually look forward to making the bed in the morning!
My favourite essential oil mixture is 5 drops of a citrus oil, 5 drops of a flower oil and 5 drops of a mint oil. The citrus provides a fresh scent, the flower smell is romantic and the mint is energizing.
This lasts me a couple of weeks and I have just as much fun coming up with a new scent combination.
