Housekeeping, Health, and Harmony
You can start with a simple change -- using a natural cleanser instead of a chemical one, cocooning in organic bedding instead of polyester sheets with a no-wrinkle finish, and choosing wall paint with low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) instead of an oil-based paint. Keeping house in the 21st century means living in a healthier home -- one that's free of toxins and synthetic chemicals -- and creating a beautiful living space that brings rest, renewal, and harmony to your life.
An informative, practical, and inspirational guide, Home Enlightenment examines the environmental impact of the choices we make each day and addresses how common, everyday chemical exposures have a subtle but profound impact on our well-being and quality of life. You'll learn how to detoxify your home one product at a time, choose environmentally friendly furnishings over products that off-gas, and establish day-to-day practices that bring healing and natural spirituality to your body and soul. Once you start to develop a natural and nontoxic lifestyle, you can transform your home into a sanctuary of health, comfort, and rejuvenation.
