Healthier Holiday Decorating

Holiday Decorating–Increasing the Level of Toxins in the Home?

healthier holiday decoratingEver wonder about the effects of holiday decorating on your health?  You may not have, but increasingly families are taking an inventory of what they use in their homes and how it affects their health.  All year long many of us use numerous toxic chemicals that adversely affect our  health.  These chemicals interfere with the normal function of our organs and may contribute to sluggish metabolism, body weight issues and the inner hormonal workings of our bodies and those of our children.  Offending products in the home include everything from harsh cleaning substances to personal hygiene products and even scented products like candles, air freshener and potpourri.

In December, our holiday decorating desires often find us adding even more scents, candles, potpourri to our already stale, confined indoor winter air.  You may not be aware of it, but a growing number of individuals are limiting their exposure to harmful household chemicals by opting to use high quality, therapeutic grade essential oils and essential oil-infused products in their homes.  One of the largest suppliers of these products is the Young Living Company.  Young Living offers a wide spectrum of products that rely on natural essential oils in place of harmful chemicals. Offering a tremendous selection of products that enable us to remove offending chemicals from our lives all year long, Young Living also offers seasonal specialties that are ideal for Christmas time.

Christmas Spirit–So Much More than Holiday Lighting

Something New With Mother Earth in Mind–LED Christmas Light

And while you’re selecting gifts and decorating your home, don’t neglect ways to save electricity by considering the use of LED string lights in place of the traditional incandescent form.  You’ll save money and take better care of the environment if you consider these for your Christmas bulbs. LED Christmas light is available in such a wide variety of forms.  You can choose from large c9 LED lights, c7 LED Christmas lights, LED Christmas mini lights and warm white LED Christmas lights.  Even battery operated LED Christmas lights are an option for locations where electrical outlets are just not an option.

So whatever you choose to do this holiday season, select carefully and keep the healthful needs of your home, family and friends in mind as well as the health and future of mother earth herself.
