Make your home the high water mark, a healthy and natural environment, by mixing together these few household items. Clean enough to eat.

Essential oils have powerful antibacterial potencies for safe and natural cleaning. I add clove oil to my bathroom cleaner which does an amazing job to ACTUALLY kill off mould (rather than just bleaching the pores, only to grow and return again).
I've found this infographic super helpful as a reference point to the ingredients and their uses. You can use the same base of: vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice and essential oils on almost anything.
All you need is spray bottle to shake up your ingredients in and your ready to go.

In this audio, I chat with Shreen El Masry, Body Positive Personal Trainer, about our shared views of the problematic side of “on & off the wagon” eating and if not dieting then what? The first step to breaking the diet-binge cycle.
