YOUR BEDROOM: When you have a good, deep sleep, your immune system has a chance to recharge, and your body is better equipped to resist whatever challenges it may face during the day.
Keep all scented products, aerosol sprays and powders out of the bedroom. Essential oils can be used lightly, if you’re sure your body tolerates them well. Even these can be toxic, so do your research first.
Keep collectibles to a minimum. No dried flowers (which collect dust and can also leave a lingering fragrance). No carpet. Air out bedding daily. Dust at least once a week with a damp cloth (water only). Open windows if outside air quality and temperature permit.
TIP: If you are particularly sensitive to scents, smoke or other airborne chemicals, this tip might help to reduce your reaction: After exposure to an irritant, take a shower, wash your hair, and hang your clothes outside or wash them with fragrance free soap (hair and clothing absorb airborne fragrances and chemicals). It’s so simple, but can make a huge difference!
