Clean water, it doesn't exactly come out of the faucet. In fact, did you know that parasitic organisms, medications, heavy metals, and the debatable fluoride are regulars in the water we still gratefully have on tap? Clean water is one of the first upgrades I suggest for optimal health and wellness. Propur and Berkey water filters are the best filters I could find. These filters sit on your countertop, but could also be taken on camping trips. They utilize ceramic and carbon filters with silver and have been third party tested and proven to filter out parasites, lead, and fluoride. You can smell and taste the difference. While they can be an initial investment, they out perform Brita filters or your refridgerator's and do not need to be replaced as frequently, so really they cost less and do a way better job. We have a Propur at our house.
Takin' a Bath
I recommend downloading apps like Think Dirty and Healthy Living to help identify toxic products and finding optimal alternatives.
For bubble baths and even in the shower, we like 'Everyone Soap'.
You Don't Have to Break-up with Make-up
