Five tips make your home an organic garden

1. Go manic with organic

Although a lot of products are very convenient, many contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to our health. So, using organic substitutes is a much healthier road to travel.

2. Shun the shoes

Take your shoes off upon entering the house and request that visitors do likewise. Not wearing shoes in the house is extremely beneficial to a healthy home environment and is also a custom that shows respect in many cultures.

3. Plant a plant

Plants are our friends. Talk to our plants, give them love and take good care of them. They freshen the atmosphere, brighten the environment, and add immeasurable energy, beauty, peace and personality to our homes.

4. Phenomenal Fresh air

Open the windows. Even in winter, open a few windows occasionally. On a nice sunny day clear out the whole house.

5. Lighten up

Replace conventional light bulbs with full-spectrum bulbs; the difference is amazing. The improvements in health, including eyes, skin and mentality, is radical.
