360º Refresh: 10 Homemade Solutions for A Healthier Home and Body

Share It


If you let it, January can be one of the bleakest, chilliest months on the calendar. After all, the sparkle of the holidays has come and gone, the spring equinox is still months away, and the temperature has shifted from uncomfortable to I’m-Never-Stepping-Foot-Outside-Again miserable. All that said, these weeks are also perfectly suited to shifting your focus back on something that was surely lost during November and December’s hustle and bustle: yourself. The time is ripe to hit the refresh button, put all of your indoor-time to good use, and give yourself and your home a little TLC. From toxin-free home cleaning products to all-natural anti-stress measures, these simple do-it-yourself projects will have you feeling clean, sparkly, and refreshed in no time! —Max

  1. Thanks so much for posting all these non toxic cleaners – I am a big fan of baking soda, vinegar, lemons etc for all my cleaning. Happy New Year and Spring Cleaning!
