Detox your home without losing style points. After all, why clear out the chemicals if you’re not creating an atmosphere where good vibes can thrive? We love these seven simple picks for a cleaner and more stylish home. Find one or two of the ideas below to implement in a mini pre-summer cleanse and pat yourself on the back for upgrading your home’s style I.Q. while detoxing your environment at the same time…
GLASS KITCHEN CONTAINERS | Old plastic bins can slowly leach chemicals into food. They’re also simply nowhere as chic as classically styled glass like these Weck jars. Consider swapping out a few go-to plastic pieces for glass containers that can be washed and reused much longer.
SAGE BUNDLES | Burning sage is a (fun) way to clear the energy of your physical space. Even if you’re not into the spiritual side of the smudging concept, the earthy aroma of these pretty little bundles is a pleasant natural addition to an at-home detox ritual. These bundles come from our favorite forest foragers, Juniper Ridge.
FRESH WHITE TOWELS | New towels are a quick way to freshen things up around the house. As we’ve been talking a lot about it lately, the fabrics we wrap ourselves in daily are worth swapping out for organic or non-toxic versions. Parachute Home’s cushy white towels are Oeko-Tex certified and ready for your summer refresh.
ESSENTIAL OILS + DIFFUSER | Get obsessed with therapeutic essential oils. A streamlined diffuser like this one makes easy work of things. We love scents like orange, rose, geranium, pine and frankincense for the home to boost energy, calm nerves, sharpen the mind – and for all-over good vibes.
AIR-CLEANING PLANTS | Did you know that indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health? Thankfully, your succulent and fiddle leaf fig obsession may come in handy. A wide array of plants like aloe can actually help deal with formaldehyde and other toxins.
CLEAN-BURNING CANDLES | We love LITE+CYCLE candles. Most come wrapped in gorgeous paper, and others, like this white glass version, come topped with an etched gold lid. The point is, beyond their obvious giftability all of L+C’s products burn ultra-clean – no toxic scents, and no toxic candle ingredients (you’d be surprised!)
NON-TOXIC PAINT | A fresh coat of paint can transform your space in no time. Trouble is, that “new paint smell” often contains less than desirable ingredients. Pick a wall and find a fresh shade like this pink-grey we love from companies like Colorhouse that let you up your wall game without toxins.
Can you tell me where the match striker in the picture is from?
@Marie. It’s the lid to the candle pictured above.
