Coconut oil is best known as a curry ingredient, smoothie additive, and beauty product. It also belongs in the cleaning cabinet as a natural and powerful cleanser and polisher.
If you haven’t switched to non-toxic household products yet, now is the time. Each year the U.S Poison Control hotline receives thousands of calls regarding accidental poisoning by common household cleaners and products. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) warns that 53 percent of the household cleaners they reviewed contain ingredients that can harm our lungs. Some products also contain carcinogens, such as formaldehyde and chloroform. Even more concerning, just seven percent of cleaners adequately disclose harmful ingredients. And the EWG warns many commercial “green cleaners” are equally misleading.
But there’s good news: Keeping a house clean does not require the use of any toxic chemicals. Simple, inexpensive ingredients, such as baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and salt get the job done.
Coconut oil is a must-have ingredient to add to the mix. Traditional island communities have used coconuts and their sweet-tasting oil for thousands of years. Modern research suggests the oil has powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal abilities. It can handle the toughest scrubbing, reconditioning, and greasing jobs.

The fresh juice frenzy is taking over fridges – According to Google; interest about juicers reached an all-time high in January 2013. Millions have embraced this food-culture phenomenon, enjoying a multitude of health benefits.
However, as this trend evolves it is important to be aware of which types of juice yield the most nutritional value. Did you know that currently 98% of the juices sold in the U.S. are pasteurized? Pasteurization uses a cooking process that kills bacteria to increase shelf life, but also destroys the natural enzymes, minerals, and essential nutrients contained in fresh juice.
Reaping the benefits of juicing through the use of fresh fruits and vegetables is more important than ever and is a tasty, easy way to meet your fruit and vegetable requirement. To improve your health – research has found that drinking fresh pressed juices can improve sleep, increase energy, decrease stress, and even lead to a longer life.
