WHY CLEAN GREEN?

"The effects of 10-20 years of cleaning can be as damaging as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for the same amount of time.  There is increasing awareness of the connection between cleaning product use and asthma and other respiratory issues, but this is the first study to look at the impact of using cleaning products over a long period of time." - Newsweek

AIR PURIFICATION

Trade out the candles, plug ins, and room sprays for an essential oil diffuser. These fragrances can contain HUNDREDS of ingredients. Ditch the harmful pollutants you're putting in your home and replacing them with essential oils to support your health and mood. For a clean scent at home try diffusing lemon with purification, or thieves.

LAUNDRY

Laundry detergent and DRYER SHEETS are the number one air pollutant in our homes because the chemical and scent is woven into our clothing and sheets, off gassing 24/7.  Ditch the dryer sheets and go for wool dryer balls sprinkled with your favorite essential oil. Nix the traditional  detergents and go for Thieves to cut chemicals and add an immunity boost for your family.
