We focus on detoxing make-up and skincare bags here at Depths, but something that is also so important to remember is that the spaces that we are living in are also helping us to feel our best. Wifi, scented candles, cleaning products, air fresheners can increase our exposure to toxins and free radicals which we want to try to avoid as much as possible! SO! Here are some of our favourite ways to help improve the health of our living spaces…

 

Himalayan Salt Lamps

Himalayan Salt Lamps are made from pure Himalayan rock salt crystals with a bulb inside.

Essential Oils

DoTerra

Essential oils can offer a whole host of health benefits depending on what you are needing but having a diffuser and pure, organic essential oils is a great way to promote a healthy living space.

  • Lemon – A great way to cleanse and purify the air in your home
  • Lavender – amazing for keeping your living space calm and to promote sleep
  • Peppermint – promotes respiratory health and deep breathing so a great one for the home 

We love using DoTerra Essential Oils, they are the highest grade, 100% pure essential oils out and can offer amazing support for wellbeing.


Room Sprays

Hanako

Many mainstream room sprays, air fresheners and scented candles, much like our perfumes are filled with synthetic fragrance which is not good for our health at all. Diffusing essential oils is one way to freshen your living space while supporting your well being at the same time. Another way is with beautiful organic, flower infused, essential oil sprays such as the one’s from Hanako Therapies.

See our blog all about Hanako here for the benefits of these beautiful perfumes and where to find them.


Sage

Sage “smudging” is a common practice in holistic home detoxification. It involves burning the sage herb and moving through your living space as a way of clearing energy and purifying the air.

Benefits

  • Energetic clearing
  • Cleanses the air
  • Removes bad odours from the air by neutralising the scent

We love nothing more than bringing the outdoors inside and having plants in our living spaces. This is something that not only helps us to feel calm and relaxed (and makes the house look like a jungle! Yes please!) BUT there are some serious health benefits to surrounding yourself with all the greens.

Benefits

  • They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen
  • Reduce pollutants in the air
  • Reduce airborne dust
  • Increase humidity
  • They can help muffle noise for a more peaceful living environment
