37 Amelia Davatzis: On low tox living plus bringing back the romance to Valentine's Day (part one)
Feb 14, 2024 Season 2 Episode 20
Chloe and Steph

This week Chloe & Steph chat to Amelia Davatzis (22:00), also known as a glimpse of Amelia,  a product reviewer-brand researcher-home detoxer-dot connector who is inspiring us & guiding us to a healthier, lower tox life. 

Before we spoke to Amelia we shared some reflections and feedback from last week's only child chat, discuss Valentine's day (is romance dead?) and give you your weekly astro update and card pull guidance. 

- Chloe and Steph's perspectives on Valentine's Day and how it can be reframed as a day to focus on self-care, romance, and loved ones beyond just romantic partners.

- Suggestions they shared for showing love through acts of service, quality time, physical touch, and gifts based on each person's love languages.

- An astrological overview from Chloe about the lunar new year, new moon in Aquarius, Mars and Venus entering Aquarius in February, and how these influence relationships and emotions.


Some key takeaways from part one of our chat with Amelia include:

- It's never about the brand, It's always about the ingredients

- It's not about being perfect, its about small changes you can make throughout your day that can make a big difference overall.

- Amelia's experience starting a low-tox Instagram page during the pandemic as an outlet and how it grew a community interested in her knowledge and guidance.

- Specific toxic chemicals like BPA, phthalates, Teflon, and "forever chemicals" that accumulate in the body.

- Tips for reducing mold like using vinegar or clove oil instead of bleach, finding moisture sources, and proper ventilation.

- The importance of informed choices and accessibility of information.

- Tips for reducing toxins through water filtration, choosing eco-friendly cleaning and personal care products, avoiding plastic where possible, and properly removing mold.

- Reducing endocrine disruptors by avoiding plastic where regularly used and making homes safe spaces was a priority.
