After cleaning up our diet, my next task was to address the products we use on our bodies and in our home.
I had already made a few changes over the years, but was feeling (ahem) kind of intimidated by such a large scale endeavor! So I determined to research each product, one at a time, in order to find at least one acceptable option for each item we use on a regular basis. It was-and still is-quite a process!
