Hi friends, I am so excited you decided to stop by. I wanted to name this blog “a mama trying her hardest to be mindful in order to bring health into her home”, but apparently that was too long of a name. So Mindful Mama, Healthy Home will have to do. For the past couple of years I have been on a journey to learn about the products we use and the foods we eat. It didn’t happen all at once. It started with food, then I moved into skin care products, then cleaning products, and little by little I began making changes to our daily living. As I continued to learn more about every day living, I starting having this growing desire to share my experiences with others. Mindful Mama, Healthy Home was born from a desire to seek a healthier, more mindful life within our home. The blog will look a bit like it did before. I’ll be sharing about our personal lives as well as my findings about more safe products, including beauty products, household cleaners, baby products, foods, etc. I am sure you’ve heard that pretty much everything causes cancer, so why even try, right? But the truth is we can make a difference in our homes. When you add how many products you use on a daily and weekly basis, it is staggering how many harmful chemicals you’ll come in contact with. As a mama, I want to do my best to protect Eli from those harmful and toxic chemicals. And along the way, I want to share what I learned about with you all. I know this can be an overwhelming journey. How can you know who to trust out there? My hope is to make that journey a little easier for you. Please feel free to follow along on instagram as well and let me know if there is anything specific you have questions about. I’m excited to share this journey with you all!
