Many very common symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, respiratory congestion and brain fog can be caused by a silent and often-undiagnosed household toxin – mould!
This video discusses how and when to look into whether mould may be causing your wellbeing issues and what to do about it. If you would prefer to read my Blog on the topic, it was published by the Wellness Universe.
This topic falls into one of the aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing – Surroundings. I also cover some simple steps to take to reduce the risk of mould becoming a problem in your home:
- Open up: open doors and windows as often as possible, fresh moving air is the enemy of mould!
- Clean regularly: vacuum and dust, change linens
- Dehumidify: if you live in a humid climate, or your home has been diagnosed as damp, a dehumidifier will help to reduce the moisture build up that mould loves
- Indoor plants: plants naturally remove toxins from the air, and of course they also produce oxygen so they will make a big improvement on the quality of the air in your home (or workplace)
- Use essential oils: NB. definitely do not use artificial air fresheners – they are literally adding toxins into your surroundings by masking unpleasant smells with chemicals. Tea tree oil is anti-fungal and has a beautiful fresh aroma, it is literally the holistic cleanser – working on all energetic levels. Oregano oil is the strongest anti-fungal oil but should not be diffused – it is great to use when cleaning though – you will probably want to combine it with a citrus oil for a more pleasant smell!
