Book Review: Healthy Child, Healthy World

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very helpful and informative book about how to keep toxins and chemicals out of your home, your kids, and yourself. While I thought some of it was a little much (I'm not going to rip out my carpets, replace the furniture, and make homemade pet food), a lot of the advice and the research backing it up is very good and easy to do, such as: eat organic food as much as you can, use non-toxic cleaning products, don't wear shoes into the house, and open your windows frequently. I did a lot of highlighting and took notes; this book will be a very good reference guide for the future.

I was already jumping on the green-living bandwagon...I'm now fully on it! This book helped convince me of how important "green-living" really is.

I started using non-toxic cleaning supplies this year and love it! My sister sells Do Terra essential oils and I use lemon and lavender to clean with....it smells heavenly!

I like them too. They work just as well and smell so much better too. I like how you use essential oils, the book recommends that!
