Home – Blessed by nature. Nurtured by you.

A sound mind resides in a sound body. A sound body, in a sound home. You may find yourself asking what a sound home looks or feels like. Well, the truth is that there’s no definite answer to it actually depends on what you make of your home. Each home has to its credit, a different and unique vibe and it’s upon the resident to bring it alive. Given our hectic schedules and other engagements or commitments that leave little time in our hands to nurture our habitat, it is important that we recognize at first how we could gradually start infusing a healthy life into it and in turn enhance our own living experience.

What might perhaps not come as a surprise to many is that the most enriching moments spent at home, alone or in company of others, do not require elaborate arrangements. It is those simple, earthly and feel good moments of consciousness from time to time when everything positive about the ambience makes it conducive to have a wholesome, relaxing and calming time. That’s what a home is for after all, right?

Take for instance, lighting. Traditional fluorescent lighting and CFLs make up most of the lighting requirements in an average household today. True. But, it doesn’t have to be so all the time. Especially, when the air around is replete with festive frenzy. And lest we forget, candles and diyas are always a draw for the discerning homemaker. Most people at this time of the year are probably looking for new and affordable ways to light up their homes. Natural Mantra recognizes these needs and has decked up its inventory with a healthy and organic range of lighting options. For e.g. the Soulflower Reed Diffuser and the Passion Indulge Traditional candle diffusers pack the double advantage of controlled diffused lighting from the candle and fill the air with heady natural aroma that’s long lasting and invigorating. Aroma ceramic diffusers are made up of natural Thai clay which has a predisposed intrinsic property of being a high heat retaining agent, making it immune to discoloration and any absorption of aromas emitted by the essential oils thereafter. In our opinion, there’s no better way to say NO to paraffin wax and switch over to natural.  Should you wish to know more, you could do so at:

It is often this small change in attitude and choices, in this case, choosing to bring home a candle diffuser made from the elements of nature, rather than one which is made with paraffin wax that marks the beginning of truly dwelling in a healthy home.

In fact let’s talk about other aspects of housing as well.

If cleanliness is next to godliness, then shouldn’t cleaning healthy be on a similar pedestal?  But of course. It is in fact the onus of the one tending to garments to ensure that they are treated in a natural way, and subjected to minimal abrasion. Regular chlorine-equipped detergents, for e.g. take the life out of fabrics and significantly reduce their life span, resulting in a gradual loss of vibrancy and softness. For the  purpose of delivering you free from the worries of your clothes’ restricted life span, go for organic, chlorine-free and biodegradable Rustic Art Chlorine-free laundry detergent for regular clothes. One of the benefits of using such natural alternatives for detergents is that the rinsed water after the cleaning process can be used to water plants and act as a healthy and enriching soil fertilizer. And when this bio laundry range of single processed detergents is fused with lemon extracts, one can rest assured that what they wear is not just healthy, but it’s fresh and smells fabulously natural too.

Besides lighting and laundering products, there are plenty of other household items that could really use some tender natural care too. Case in point, those expensive bronze utensils that you had cherished for ages which have also probably been handed down through generations.

Nature often works in ways that tarnishes these utensils over regular use or if they’re left unused for a while. During such times wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a product that can not only clean them effectively but also restore their shine and luster? We recommend you try out the Omved Bronze Cleaning Powder from Natural Mantra to remarkably get back the glory of true princely dining experience.

Build a healthy home this monsoon!

Image

This monsoon, open your doors and windows to joy,
Not to an unclean home filled with diseases & odour!

Have you ever heard the quote – One man’s friend, is another man’s foe!

We’d like to begin our blog on home safety this monsoon by drawing an analogy with this quote.

You know how kids enjoy playing in puddles and couples love taking romantic walks under one umbrella during the rains. But for a housewife, there is no play and no romance in monsoon, but a messy home filled with a musty smell, damp clothes, insects and bacteria!

Today, we will turn that around and tell you how even a home-maker can stop worrying and start enjoying the monsoons!

Let us start by discussing the main problems that occur on a typical rainy day:

– Damp clothes that refuse to dry for days together, leaving you with musty smelling clothes

– Footprints filled with mud and leaking umbrellas and rain-coats

– Stained carpets filled with moisture and mud

– Breeding mosquitoes in damp areas of the house

– Power-cuts

– Leaking walls and roof

– Diseases caused by insects and bacteria

– Silver fish in wardrobes

– Drain clogging

We could have added more to the list, but then these are the major pain-points. So now we come to the part where we tell you how you can deal with them. Here goes:

– Damp Clothes: After washing your clothes, put them on hangers. Buy those portable cloth-hanging stands and place the hangers on them. Now put this stand in one of your empty rooms and switch on the fan at full speed. As for the musty smell, use some natural clothes freshener that will also act as a conditioner for clothes.

– Footprints, stained carpets with leaking clothes & rainy-wear: Roll away your wool and other expensive carpets and instead, spread out decorative bamboo mat, coir mat or synthetic mat. Before putting away your expensive carpets, roll them in plastic sheets so that moisture doesn’t get through it.

Keep a bucket at the entrance of your house where your family or guests can dump their rainy-wear before entering the house

Roll out use-and-throw door-mats where they can wipe their muddy footwear

– Mosquitoes and Insects: Monsoons create breeding grounds for various disease-causing insects that find a way into our homes. Keep your home safe from these insects without the suffocating smoke of repellants. Instead, try the Freshener Oils from Natural Mantra that are effective combinations of Essential Oils from wood, leaves & grass. They help naturally to offset odour and freshen up surrounding. It has anti bacterial properties and helps clean and deodorize air.

– Power-cuts: Power-cuts are not an unusual phenomenon during the monsoons. It is annoying and unpleasant, though most of us have chargeable batteries handy for such times.

But here is a quick way to turn the power-cut into a beautiful evening. Light up your house with aromatic candles and beautiful candle-stands.

– Leaking walls and roof: If some walls are damp, get them waterproofed. The terrace can also be waterproofed. Get the drainage cleaned up as they tend to clog during the monsoon by filling up with mud, leaves and dirt. Seal the cracks formed in your walls and windows so that rain water doesn’t enter your home.  Fill gaps between sliding windows with rubber lining to keep water from seeping through on a windy, rainy day. If you have metal surfaces that you suspect could get rusty, treat them with a waterproofing spray.

– Silver fish in wardrobes: You can use naphthalene balls in your closet which will protect your clothes and other valuable things from moisture as well as insects. Alternatively, you can put Neem leaves as it prevents silver fish to enter your cupboards in monsoon and can use cloves to keep insects away from your clothes.

-Drain clogging: Get the drainage cleaned up as they tend to clog during the monsoon by filling up with mud, leaves and dirt. Ensure that the water drains on your roof are working well; otherwise water may stagnate on the roof and start seeping through the ceiling and walls.

This may seem overwhelming and a lot to do, but with a little planning and help from your family members, you can easily make your home a healthy home this monsoon. Now the rainy evenings will no more be morose and filled with cleaning and tidying. Let your hair down and enjoy sipping some hot chai with pakoras the next time the Rain-Gods shower you with their love!
