10+ DIY Recipes for Clean, Green Living


There's a growing demand for safe, all-natural cleaning solutions, and essential oils provide the answer. 

10+ DIY Recipes for Clean, Green Living

It's official. There's no way around it. Everything's in need of clean.

 

And fortunately, cleaning products are available just about everywhere. Retail shelves are lined with myriad options for keeping our homes, offices and cars spic-and span- but it turns out, most do more harm than good. The majority of top-selling commercial products on the market today were developed in the late 1980's, when petroleum-based and chemical-laden options were praised for their synthetic fragrances and toxic cleaning power.


Today we know better.


There's a growing demand for safe, all-natural cleaning solutions, and essential oils provide the answer. Oils-based, green cleaning products not only help keep our homes healthy, they also help reduce waste, lower pollution emissions in the air and waterways, and are more cost effective than their harmful counterparts. Everybody wins!


Dedicate a weekend morning to clearing your cupboards of the bad stuff, then mix up a few of our non-toxic DIY products for living green.
