How to Purify Your Body, Home and Mind - Clean Hair Care and 5 Purifying House Plants to Detox Your Being
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hair Food. The opinions and text are all mine.
Many of you know our family history with Lupus and environmental stressors. After my father was diagnosed nearly 10 years ago, he has always preached natural is best. Since then, we've embraced a less is more approach. This meant a total clean home, mind and body journey for our family. I set out to find effective and clean beauty/ personal care products in 2018 and I was initially super intimidated by where to start. If this is one of your goals of 2019, today's post is all about making small, effective changes to purify your mind, body and home.
When it comes to hair care, what you put on your hair is as important as the food you eat. I discovered Hair Food recently at my local Target and Kroger and was instantly intrigued by the naturally beautiful design. After reading the ingredient list, I was instantly impressed. Changing your haircare to natural shampoo and natural conditioner means feeding your hair the best nutrients and none of the yucky stuff your body doesn't need. Hair food is sulfate free, paraben free, dye free hair care that actually works. The Hair Food Purifying Collection with Tea Tree & Lavender Water especially caught my eye because it's specifically formulated to feed hair showing signs of breakage and heat damage. I curl, straighten, over-style my hair every week. I really need a natural shampoo to gently cleanse all the product build up (*cough* dry shampoo for 3 days in the row *cough) and a natural conditioner to replenish moisture and shine. The Hair Food Purifying Collection with Tea Tree & Lavender Water does just that. Infused with the tea tree oil and lavender essences, this duo left my color and heat treated hair feeling smooth and more manageable. I loved it so much I even brought it to our Colorado ski trip to combat the drying environment.
If you are curious about clean, natural shampoo and conditioners, the entire Hair Food line is affordable. Find it at your local Target, Kroger and select Wal-marts
Mind and Home
House plants is by far one of my most requested topics. I also inherited my dad's passion for plants. Seeing greenery around the house makes my mind happy! I love creating pockets of plant sanctuary to look beautiful and purify our home. Here is a list of 5 air purifying house plants that I successfully raised on medium to low indoor light.
My massive snake plant is one of the hearties, least easy to kill plants I own. It has survived 5 years of neglect and irregular watering right by the windows. This plant is slow to grow so it's worth investing in a decent sized plant when you start out.
I added a dragon tree last year and really enjoy this purple variety. It requires relatively low light but needs a little more water than the snake plant. I have this plant downstairs by the windowsill and it does well with variable lighting conditions.
I have grown 2 varieties of spider plants and really enjoy my hanging spider plant pot. They make little "babies" that branch off nicely and creates a structured, beautiful hang. Spider plant like medium sun and does really well in macramé hangers. It works hard to remove harmful air pollutants.
Rubber Tree Plant
This tree like plant was gifted to me 3 years ago. I have cycled it on the porch and inside. It prefers brighter light but is easy to grow. It's one of the best for purifying air
Aloe is good one to keep in the bedroom as it releases oxygen and absorbs CO2 at night. It's easy to grow and has many uses. I love the sculptured look of them!
Every little step towards a healthy happier life counts. I hope today's post helps you find balance and peace.
