Natural Cleaning Benefits for a Safer & More Sustainable Home

Natural Cleaning Benefits for a Safer & More Sustainable Home

Apr 27, 2023

As we strive towards a greener and more sustainable lifestyle, one area we can make a significant impact is in the products we use to clean our homes. Traditional cleaning products can contain harsh chemicals. These chemicals are not only harmful to our health but also harm the environment. As a green witch, using natural household cleaners can be a way to honor our sacred space and live in harmony with nature.

First and foremost, natural cleaning ingredients are better for our health, and chemical cleaners can cause respiratory problems, skin irritation, and even more severe health issues over time. On the other hand, natural ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils are safe to use and have many benefits. For example, vinegar is an effective disinfectant, while baking soda is a gentle abrasive that can help remove stains and odors.

How Commercial Cleaners Are Harmful

In addition to being safer for our health, natural cleaning ingredients are also better for our families. Traditional cleaning products can leave behind harmful residues that can be ingested or absorbed through the skin. These harmful residues are especially concerning for households with children or pets who may come into contact with surfaces cleaned with commercial chemical cleaners. By using natural cleaners, we can create a healthier environment for our loved ones.

Natural cleaning ingredients are better for the environment. Chemical cleaners can be toxic to aquatic life and contribute to air pollution. The packaging for these products is often not recyclable, leading to more waste in our landfills. By choosing natural cleaners, we can reduce our impact on the environment and live in a more sustainable way.

3 Ways to Start Using Natural Cleaners

As a green witch, using natural household cleaners can be an extension of our spiritual practice. We can honor the natural world by using ingredients derived from plants and minerals. We can also infuse our cleaners with essential oils that have magical properties, such as lavender for purification or peppermint for energy cleansing.

To create your own natural household cleaners:

  1. Start with basic ingredients such as vinegar, baking soda, and castile soap.
  2. Add in essential oils that have properties that align with your intentions, such as eucalyptus for healing or lemon for purification.
  3. As you clean your space, visualize the negative energy and toxins being cleared away, making room for positive energy and blessings.

Natural cleaning ingredients are better for our health and the environment and a way to connect with our spirituality as green witches. By making the switch to natural cleaners, we can create a healthier and more harmonious home while also honoring the earth.
