Carol Manzetti will be at Central Christian Church on Thursday, March 28 at 2 p.m. to share her knowledge of non-toxic skin care and household cleansers that can create a healthier environment for you, your family and pets.
Have you ever wondered if the sweet floral aromas that fill our homes, infuse our laundry and saturate our skin, could be making us sick? Are there toxins associated with scented candles and diffusers, fabric softeners and dryer sheets and perfume and body wash?
We have known for a long time that the insecticides we spray on our fruits and vegetables are not good for us and that the poisons we use on our yards can kill pesky insects, ugly weeds and our pets.
Carol Manzetti has been practicing the use of safer products in her own beauty regimen and household cleaning routine for several years. A miscarriage prompted her to examine more closely the effects of the environment on her life.
“People often become more aware of environmental toxins during a critical point in their life,” Carol said.
For instance, the birth of a baby or trying to conceive frequently makes people more cognizant of harmful external factors. How many people have given up the life-threatening habit of smoking cigarettes because “you can’t smoke around the baby”? Or maybe the shattering diagnosis of a serious illness such as breast cancer or a chronic condition like inflammatory arthritis cause people to ask the question, “what am I putting into my body?”
“There is no one culprit. That would be too simplistic,” Carol said. “However, there are endocrine disrupting chemicals in many of the products that we use over and over every day, and that is where changes can make a difference,” she added.
Carol is also the first to concede that people cannot live in a bubble. She has lived in both America and Europe and as a flight attendant, continues her world-wide travels. But changes can be made to diminish the stress we put on our bodies by the addition of everyday items that are not good for us.
Come hear what Carol has to say about natural products for personal use and your home and garden. You will leave with tips on how you can make your space a safer place. For more information call the church office at 214-526-7291.
