our top tips for a non toxic holiday season
There are lots of temptations that might have you straying from your healthy lifestyle this holiday season. If you’re like us, you’ll have to pick and choose your indulgences. At pure haven, we find that the holiday cookies and candies, festive meals, and maybe a few cocktails are well worth the indulgence. But when it comes to incorporating personal care and home products laden with harmful ingredients (think holiday makeup, scented candles, and air fresheners) into the merriment, that’s where we draw the line.
Trying to stay true to your non toxic promises this year? Here are our top tips for a non toxic holiday season:
Go fragrance free! Fragrance is added to everything from candles to hand soap, household cleaners, shampoo, body wash, and even toothpaste, and it can be toxic. Choose pure haven for 100% fragrance-free products for your entire home that smell amazing naturally, with the help of aromatic botanicals and essential oils.
Ditch the harsh cleaning chemicals. Even the ones labeled “gentle” or “natural” likely contain harsh ingredients. Thanks to trade secret laws, manufacturers aren’t required to list ALL the ingredients included in cleaning products, leaving us all wondering what exactly we’re breathing in, scouring our tubs with, and spraying on food prep surfaces. The good news? Pure haven has nothing to hide. Everything IN our products is ON our products. No compromises.
Open your windows. If the weather cooperates in your area this time of year, open a few windows in your home to freshen up the stale, stuffy indoors and invite in a fresh, natural, seasonal scent of the great outdoors.
Decorate with live plants. Not only does incorporating plants into your home décor look beautiful, it may help clean the air, too. Greenery like ivy and ferns are known to help remove toxins from the air and purify the environment. Plants like poinsettias, amaryllis, and holly add a bit of color to your décor while paper white narcissus, pine, and rosemary look beautiful and lend a lovely scent to your home.
Stick to a natural look. No need to cover up your pretty face with toxic cosmetics. A clean face and basic makeup are the perfect combination for any gathering, whether a quiet evening at home with friends, a family holiday party, or a festive night on the town.
Give the gift of non toxic. You’re living a healthier lifestyle with non toxic products. So you wouldn’t give your loved ones gifts loaded with harmful ingredients that go against the lifestyle you strive for, right?
