Welcome back to our Raising Healthy Families series! Each week, we’ll bring you another great post with a tip for helping you raise your families healthfully in this not-very-healthy world.
Today’s post is brought to you by Anne of Authentic Simplicity.
Once I got serious about removing chemicals from my diet, I began to realize that I was ingesting and consuming even more chemicals (and potentially more dangerous ones) via the personal care products I used on a regular basis. After experimenting with a variety of toiletry options in a trial-and-error fashion over the past few years, I’ve settled on a simple but healthy hygiene routine for myself and The Boys.
Simple & Healthy Hygiene
One thing you need to understand about me: I like to keep things simple! I decided after a while that fussing around with concocting my own products made with special-order ingredients was definitely not for me. While I certainly love for all my hygiene items to be healthy and inexpensive, I don’t want to waste a lot of time and effort in mixing them up on a regular basis. So I pretty much only make toiletries if they use one or two ingredients; otherwise I’ve found some affordable brands to purchase that I trust and can recommend. I have a great deal of respect and admiration for anyone who makes their own toiletries for their family, but I’ve decided for myself that I prefer to spend my time on other things.
If you, too, want to provide healthy hygiene products for your family but don’t have a lot of time or desire to mess around with making your own, click here for Anne’s recommendations!
